You could definitely tell they knew it was a bad idea. I almost got a sense from them that they didn't think anyone was really listening anyway.
Looking back at what transpired I was thinking about the reaction. The term "bully" has been absolutely beaten to death and overused over the past few years. I think this, however, was a perfect example. These guys were mocking the lifespan of a guy who can't breath, move, or talk on his own, but is still working for the betterment of others. He has no normal way of even confronting them on it or calling them out, outside of print. Decent people from all over saw that.
