    I made a RIP gary coleman tribute this morning, and was around the 2nd person to upload one. I'm getting a lot of views and comments, but I don't have the heart to monetize off someone's death so I'm just telling you guys. I think it would be a pretty good idea to make tribute videos beforehand of some well known actors and actresses; and when they do die you can be the first to upload a tribute and a professional one at that... I think this sounds really screwed up and I just can't do it.

    well, you could always donate a portion to charity if that makes you feel better about monetizing it.

    Well just think of it this way. If you dont do it, someone else will.
    It happens all the time, i sit and say i dont think its ethical to do that. 2 hours later 10 people doing what i didnt...LOL

    I was going to register GaryColemanDead.com 2 days ago when the article was posted on CNN (about him being in critical condition), but I didn't, frankly because I don't have time. Somebody registered it today. The only problem is, major blogs will dominate the ranks for it way before a brand new domain can compete for it.
