I need help with something math/sciencey so I'm crowd-sourcing here because I've been trying to figure this out for 24 hours and I'm still questioning it. Can you show up as a DNA match to someone who you don't share a direct common ancestor with? Here's a purely hypothetical example: My grandmother has my mother who has me. Let's call this line 1. Say my grandmother also has another child by her second husband and that kid has a kid. We'll call this line 2. I'd still share DNA with the last kid on line because we all have the same grandparent. But my grandmother's hypothetical other husband has children with his first wife and those children have children. We'll call this line 3. So line one would share DNA with line 2 because of the shared direct ancestor of my grandmother, and line 2 would share DNA with line 3 because of the shared direct ancestor of my grandmother's second husband, but would line 1 and line 3 show up as matches on a DNA test? I'm thinking no, because there is relation but since it doesn't go to a single direct ancestor a DNA match would not show they are related. Am I right?

Gold = When someone has been "anonymously" (YOU ARE NEVER ANONYMOUS ON THE INTERNET) leaving gross, provocative comments on your blog for a month but your commenters know to ignore the troll and so you just leave the comments on the blog because you know that the worst possible punishment for the troll is having their provocative comments ignored, but then someone finally "anonymously" complains that you haven't done anything about the troll but they forget they are still logged in AS THE TROLL. Sir, you are literally the only person paying attention to you and it sort of made my whole night.
