Next of "kin" e-mail address
Short, concise description of the idea
Suggestion for a next of "kin" e-mail address in the personal profile, only visible for friends or specific friends, the e-mail address of someone to contact in case of long time unexplained absence from lj (caused by death).
Full description of the idea
I'm suggesting this because in the 2 years I've been on lj, I've seen lj members die sudden deaths. They had next of kin or friends contact their lj friends and notify them of the lj member's death, but not everyone thinks of or wishes to give out their passwords to a friend or family member in case of sudden death. Therefore, I'm suggesting a next of kin e-mail address in the personal profile or somewhere else that's visible for friends or restricted groups of friends set by the users themselves so lj members can contact next of kin during long term unexplained absences.
