Neither do I think that anyone waiting on word of their loved ones on flight MH370 would fins this funny. However, I am not waiting on word about
anyone on flight MH370, so I think it is tastelessly, offensively funny and will star anyone who thinks the same.

because: I made a type boo-boo.
This is sort of what I meant. We know that people who are connected to those on board are going to be suffering, and therefore they likely may
understand why this Craigslist post is funny to many, as they could probably recognize the humor, but it is highly unlikely they would laugh at all.
This would really be a great topic for debate imo. So is it wrong for others, who are not personally connected to the event, to find humor in certain
aspects of it?
Or would it be wrong for me to find such a joke funny, yet still understand that there are people suffering? I think something to consider is the fact
that this particular "joke" was not actually pointing to the event itself as funny. I mean we are not laughing because a freaking airplane is
missing, with all on board. There is really no humor in that. So does that make any difference?
I suppose we should ask ourselves how we might feel if we were in the position of these families, and whether we would get offended if someone made
this same joke. I honestly don't think I would get offended. I could be wrong, but I understand that the majority of people do not appreciate the
seriousness of something unless they are directly involved. Maybe I shouldn't say "most" people, but many. Like I said, it would be an interesting
topic for debate.
