You're not wrong, and your post is rational. There is a subset of users here who love airplanes (not aviation, airplanes) pathologically. One poster even said his first thought after 9/11 was to think of the airplane. IMO, that indicates a mental illness.
It's a 767. It's an old design that's still in production. The people who care more about aircraft than people are probably not that disturbed about the hull loss in this case.
Anyone who is commenting about feeling unsettled by seeing the particular aircraft shortly prior to the incident are feeling unsettled about seeing the aircraft that would soon carry unsuspecting individuals to a sudden demise. If anyone saw the crew shortly beforehand they would be describing the same phenomenon, but the user in question didn't see the crew, they saw the plane.
