Our exclusive interview with the young woman who praised God for the quake in Japan attracted a number of comments this week. The YouTube users, who goes by Tamtampamela, had been pretending to be a Christian radical for the last year and plenty of you had pent-up feelings about her and you disapproved ("I really really don't like you as a person" wrote speaklight).
But reader Marchcalm may have hit the nail on the head:
... and for the rest of her life the internet will "remember" what she did for a bit of fun. Not sure this was well thought out with a view towards her future.
As for mocking death and destruction, it seems it is perfectly ok with her as long as it does not come back to haunt her, which it might well do.
Perhaps now she will grow up and begin to act more ethical and age appropriate?
