Cyberracism, Neo Fascism in the Internet – the Dark Sides of “Free Information”?

During my research for M91MC I found some interesting pages about less acceptable / more problematic aspects of modern media culture or free information in the internet, respectively: Cyberracism and “Cyberfascism“. The last term shall describe neofascist activities in the world wide web. I am thinking about doing some more research on this topic and possibly to write about it. I would like to know what experiences and knowledge you have about these issues.

Another interesting and similar topic could be Cyberjihad – probably all those phenomena share the same basic mechanisms in terms of (pejorative) identity construction, propaganda / PR etc.
