Overkilling Announcements on Facebook

Yesterday, radio personality Don Imus passed away at age 79.  Within an hour I must have seen at least 100 announcements of his passing on Facebook.  How many times must this be done?  It is OK if the poster includes some unique information or perhaps an aircheck.

I moderate fan pages for Cousin Brucie and Harry Harrison and decided to delete posts on those pages about the passing since Imus's radio career had nothing to do with Harry or Brucie.  Readers of those pages heard the announcement on other areas of Facebook.

Imus's "mitzvah" was his donations to charities.  He was very popular on WNBC, WFAN, and WABC, but I never listened to him since his style was not "my cup of tea."  Condolences to his family and friends.
