I'm just trying to follow the rules here. Discussing whether someone is 'hot' is okay. Discussing whether someone is 'hot' who is involved in a national story that is deemed by most to be a 'tragedy' is also okay, but maybe tacky. An online article taking this discussion to a larger audience, this crosses a line and now it's perceived as 'trash'.
I think anyone dealing with the loss of a loved one on the Malaysian airlines flight is probably a little too busy right now to be reading Instinct articles about cute guys. And I can't imagine they're petty enough to take offense to such a silly and innocent thing as this discussion.
I could be totally wrong here. Just going off how I've felt when dealing with heavy problems of death and loss.
