When I woke up this morning, I read about the Boston Marathon bombing only minutes after it happened. Such is the power of social media. Like everyone, I was shaken – very shaken. Then thought to myself, social media is amazing, I can see this from the other side of the world… and I wondered… how quick are the cybersquatters? 30 mins had not even passed and these domains were already registered:
Personally, I think its disgusting when people register domain names and create websites that enable them to profit by running ads. This is profiting from a disaster, a tragedy.
Does Better Living magazine know their ads are shown on bostonbombing.org ? Does CrazyDomains and Godaddy?
Who in their right mind would put “Welcome to bostonbombing.net?” on their website?
This is the lowest of the low. A discraceful, offensive practice that the Internet industry should condemn.
Do you agree? Leave a comment and tell me what you think.
