Summary The relative anonymity the Internet provides allows us to assert our knowledge like a professor, show off our seemingly perfect lives, and judge like we are presiding over a court of law. The problem with this relatively new phenomenon is that we often make snap judgments about other people s actions or statements without knowing all of the facts, and without giving others the benefit of the doubt. This volume dives deep into the realities of the Internet age: Do we become different people when we re on the Internet? What responsibility do we have in our treatment of others in this new society? Is it our place to be virtual judge and jury? Bibliography, Detailed Table of Contents, Further Information Section, Index, Primary Sources, Websites.
