Stop exploiting the Boston story

The Boston bombings are a big deal, yes. But certain tech blogs are writing about it (by writing, I mean regurgitating everyone else's coverage) for page views alone, and that's not okay. Sure, there are certain tech angles that may be relevant to discuss - but talking about how lots of people are hearing the story through Twitter is not one of them. That would've been news in 2007, but it certainly is not today. Everyone wants to play the page view game by exploiting a very serious topic, and the sheer selfishness there pisses me off to no end.
