So - not to pick on the newly niftar, but here's the question:
How do you define "Tzadikim" that go's on this list?
Do you put on every Rav Ir, Shchuna, Beis Knessset... Magid Shiur...?

In any case, Aryeh Deri's brother, Rav Yehuda (who was currently a candidate for Rav HaRashi) was buried yesterday in Sanhedria, near Chacham Ovadia

???
What exactly is the problem if you C"V mark someone who is not a Tzadik as a Tzadik?
That someone will daven by his Kever by accident?
That someone will light a candle in his memory?
