Did you get their OK, or let them know you were doing this? Are they dead and so it doesn't matter? Or don't you care how they will feel?
I would think that many people would feel insulted, even if their project was a bit odd. Better to just let sleeping dogs lie undisturbed, and not offend contributors, even past ones, who most likely have subscriptions to Threads.

I'd re-think this if I were Threads.
