Discrimination and harassment that were once committed in real time have now moved to the online
environment. Discrimination and harassment on the Internet take many forms and can be more damaging
and insidious than the face-to-face forms of abuse. This conceptual paper looks at two types of abusive
online conduct that have emerged due to the proliferation of the Internet in our lives: Weblining and
cyberbullying. These topics are examined from an ethical perspective with a focus on gender and racial
discrimination issues.
