    Seems like there was more outrage over people profiting off of MJ's death then this..

    You're right though, I wouldn't feel comfortable doing this. Even worse are the fake donation sites that have been popping up :(

    You're right, that would most likely bring me some bad mojo if I attempted to monetize it.

    most people that search for these keywords only look for them for the sensation they deserve you get fucked over.

    however i agree with you guys messing with that kind of keywords is bad for our rep and bad for you.

    So now there is a moral compass on black hat? So if you steal from a non tragedy victim it is ok? I really don't see a moral compass being applicable to black hat.

    Wow that's awesome! I can see it now:


    "My entire family has been buried alive beneath that pile of ruble that was once my house. I have no food, no water and will likely lose my leg to infection. My entire country and way of life has been absolutely and totally obliterated....

    But thank god I know my thetan levels are ok. Thank you Mr. Travolta!"

    The "moral compass" is set by the individual. Personally, I am turned off by the monetization of death and tragedy and want nothing to do with it.

    After 9/11 the same thing happened, 'charities' sprang up that helped nobody but the scammer.

    I know people who 'collected' for charities... but then kept the cash and bought things.

    dammn.. how deep can one sink, to put the money he got for charities in his pocket, in a situation like this in haiti?

    I know it from my homeland Albania, that a lot of korupt politics keep all the money they get for new streets, bigger schools, clear water, and such.

    But come one, at least 100.000 dead people in a matter of minutes + the ones still somewhere almost dead...and all the other one now without food, a home or children without parents.

    They need it more then these motherfuckers who put it in theire ass to spend it on bitches and clothes.

    It's nothing new. It's happened many times since twitter introduced Trending Topics.
