Abstract:

The UseNet system, a worldwide distribution network of electronic bulletin boards and discussion groups, has provided some advantages for disseminators of antisemitic propaganda. Examines the activities of three such discussion groups in March-June 1992, which dealt mainly with the issue of Holocaust denial. The most "prolific" of the antisemites in these groups was Ralph Winston. Traces the composition of the participants in the discussion, the main motifs, the antisemitic arguments, and the reactions to them. Concludes that, for the present, the antisemitic propaganda has not been successful, mainly because of the sophistication of the UseNet audience. However, with a growing base of subscribers, it is likely that such propaganda will become more pervasive.
