    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.

    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.
