The internet is no different than the real world. There are good people, bad ones, those that straddle the fence, and those that try to take advantage of all the wrong things. Such would be the case for the individual will the gall to auction off the domain name MH370.com on eBay for $5,000.

Registering web domain names and then selling them – known as “flipping” – is common practice online. But when you take the flight number of a missing aircraft presumed fatally crashed along with it hundreds of occupants, and try to sell THAT domain name in the here and now, you’re just a jerk. As people beckon for answers and begin to cope with the loss, one unsavory opportunist looks to make a little money. Nothing to see here folks.
