Take a look at the darker side of the internet

This book provides an account of the apparent explosion in disturbing social trends and extreme forms of moral wrong-doing that have emerged online in recent years. There is a large and exponentially growing body of work on various positive aspects of the technology, such as the growth of knowledge, the freedom of speech and the revitalization of democracy the Internet has been thought to facilitate. The focus of this book, however, concerns far more morally problematic aspects of our relatively new computer-mediated-communication contexts, which, as yet, have not been the subject of comprehensive analysis at all.
