Abstract

Co-authored with Jean Stefancic, Hate Speech in Cyberspace analyzes why hate speech and other expressions of contempt are so ubiquitous on the Internet. Building on our previous work on hate speech, we identify features of cyberspace that predispose users to communicate in this fashion, and suggest a number of remedies.
