Google provides extensive information on the Virginia Tech shooting. A query for "Cho Seung-Hui", who has been identified as the killer, results in news bits, organic results from news sources discussing the shooting, as well as blog posts mentioning his name. Google was the first to bring this into their organic results, and since some minutes ago, Yahoo includes organic coverage of this as well.

Google can be a very important news transmitter in cases like these. The top site on Google.cn for [Cho Seung-Hui] is censored, by the way (but not manually, it's just on xys.org, which is completely self-censored on Google China).

So www.cho-seung-hui.com is parked now, and it uses Google AdSense for Parked Domains for profits at this time.

I sent in a comment to CNN.. hopefully they will mention this on thier coverage and at least bring some responsible action from the register's!!

It is truly a slap in the face. There is nothing wrong with making money online, but strong arming the poor family members to the victims by stealing their name sake is just wrong. I hope CNN does help out with this. Every time something terrible happens in this world, people jump to the nearest computer and register domain names that relate to the people or situation.

I have simpathy for Cho Seung-hui. I myself immigrate to this country from Asia. I too commit a crime and be arrested (but not nearly as bad as this man). US culture very difficult too under-stand for one, not from here. I think if I commit more than enough crime I get to sleep with miss Paris Hilton. Who really the sic one>? It is society.

I veliebe that this crime is the resoult of the brain-wash program that people is exposed to from the begining of education, i mean, tv, school, society etc, we are always under a constant program of control, and a american way af life that is plain crap, be all you can be? come on..... and that is only an example, there is also the ever growing hate to others, that is why this kind of crimes are not seen on other places but in the us.

i think what that cho guy did was good, he killed many innocent people, but the teachers will be afraid to abuse the student in future. i read what he wrote, he said he is sacrificing himself for all the weak and helpless guys. and its true. first i thought he was a monster but after i read what he wrote i can see the benefit of what he did. you see in our world people only respect one thing – strength. if you are big and tall everyone respect you, if you are small everyone treats you like shit. cho showed that small guys can turn nasty if pushed too far, and that will make people afraid to pick on small guys, especially students. innocent people died, that's unfortunate. but the same thing happens in a war, innocent die in order to correct some other evil. cho was kicked out of poetry and literature class for his writing, he was a shy guy so when he tried to hit on a couple girls in a somewhat clumsy way they ratted on him. girls don’t have the guts to say “i am not interested, but thank you for asking” to guys they find unattractive, instead they pretend they like them, flirt with them, than behind their back they rat on them and backstab them. and misandrist men are all to happy carrying out their dirty duties falsely accusing a guy of harassment. sex discriminates against the ugly. they don’t realize that ugly guys are people too who also deserve to have fun and be happy. taking a kinder and gentler attitude towards all humankind might serve these pampered women with low self-esteem well. its easy to ridicule men, to blame men, to ignore men. but it is not easy to be a man. especially an ugly short man like cho. society prepares the crime the criminal commits it.

feminists and men who support gender biased, sexist, anti-male laws including the school system, police, justice system, and government are responsible for emasculation of men, which is the cause of the social anxiety among young men like cho. feminists would rather nitpick and close down a corporation which is supporting thousands of women who feed their babies because some guy hang a victoria’s secret angel over the time clock. its time women got over themselves and men stopped impersonating sentimental buffoons catering to their vile whims.

as for the media, its common sense that by rewarding cho with what he was aiming for – publicity they are sending the message that whoever kills a lot of people will be rewarded with publicity. why stop there? announce a bloody reward for the families of dead serial killers so you can get your bloody ratings. what do you expect from a society which is so utterly lacking in integrity? you are worse than the cho dude, you may be snug and secure behind your desks, but you are encouraging murder.
