I think it is a ridiculous notion to stop disliking someone because they are dead, but I still think it is distasteful to celebrate their death in an overt fashion; the only person you stand no chance of affecting is the person you profess to hate, and yet you could well upset another blameless innocent who is grieving.
The exception to this rule would be the death of an oppressor which directly resulted in freedom, but I would argue that is more about celebrating the end of the oppression.
