I see dead people

Attached are pics from Facebook where it has encouraged me to contact people I know are dead. It's a bit weird when it suggests I "reconnect" with them but maybe that's just me. I'm an atheist.

Facebook has been in the press a bit recently for defaced tribute pages. I think the issue of acknowledging dead people on the social networking site has further implications.

On Australian TV news they are obligated to warn viewers when they are about to screen footage of dead Aboriginals. Does Facebook meet this cultural sensitivity?

I'd guess it would require a lot of work for Facebook to check profiles and would cause problems if they disconnected profiles that hadn't been accessed in six months or so. Maybe they could have a Bring Out Your Dead event?
