    It's always a two-way street at FTDNA. If someone disables matching, then it is disabled both ways -- they're not visible to their matches, and they can't see their matches either.

      I see, good to know, someone can still access matching for six months or less, get all the data they want and then disable it suppose. Their choice but not exactly beneficial to the advancement of genetic genealogy or anthropology.

        I'm happy to have my name and e-mail address all over the internet on genealogy sites. I still get meaningful replies to queries posted many years ago, and I have been able to help people from all over the world with their research. Yes, I get spam, but so does everyone else. I don't find it difficult to identify the real messages among the spam. I don't seem to get hacked more than anyone else I know.
