When do I deactivate a source?

Anna Weggel -

As you are reading responses and searching through the database, you occasionally might come across a source that you consider deactivating. Before you do so, consider if annotating the source's profile might be a better idea. Your instinct may be to deactivate someone if they are emailing you a lot, or providing possible false information, but we've cultivated a list of criteria for when to deactivate a source. Suggested criteria for deactivating sources is as follows.

          -stalking a staff member

          -posing some sort of a threat to someone
