Appendix C – Online Harassment Glossary of Terms

Cyberbullying

Definition: An umbrella term (like “online harassment”) meant to encompass a number of harassing online behaviours. Like physical bullying, “cyberbulling” is generally aimed at young people and may involve threats, embarrassment, or humiliation in an online setting.

Cyberstalking

Definition: In a legal context, “cyberstalking” is the prolonged use (a “course of conduct”) of online harassment intended “to kill, injure, harass, intimidate, or place under surveillance with intent to kill, injure, harass, or intimidate” a target.. Cyberstalking can comprise a number of harassing behaviours committed repeatedly or with regularity that usually cause a target to suffer fear, anxiety, humiliation, and extreme emotional distress

Doxing

Definition: “Doxing” involves publishing someone’s sensitive personal information online in an attempt to harass, intimidate, extort, stalk, or steal the identity of a target. “Sensitive information” can include social security numbers, phone numbers, home addresses, personal photos, employment information, email addresses, and family Members’ personal information.

Hacking

Definition: The unauthorised intrusion into a device or network, hacking is often carried out with the intention to attack, harm, or incriminate another individual by stealing their data, violating their privacy, or infecting their devices with viruses. When hacking is used to perform illegal activities or intimidate a target, it is a cybercrime.

Hateful speech and online threats

Definition: By far the most common form of online harassment, hateful speech or threats, both explicit and implicit, can be issued by an ill-intentioned internet User pretty much anywhere on the web.

Hateful speech: Hateful speech is a form of expression attacking a specific aspect of a person’s identity, such as one’s race, ethnicity, gender identity, religion, sexual orientation, or disability. Hateful speech online often takes the form of ad hominem attacks, which invoke prejudicial feelings over intellectual arguments in order to avoid discussion of the topic at hand by attacking a person’s character or attributes.

Threats: Threats issued online can be just as frightening as they are offline, and are frequently meant to be physically or sexually intimidating.

Message Bombing (via email, text, SMS)

Definition: “Message bombing” is the intentional flooding of a person’s or institution’s phone or email accounts with messages meant to limit or block a User’s access to a device’s operating system or platform. Because large numbers of messages sent in a short period of time can typically render a person’s account unusable, this is an effective way for a harasser to prevent you from using your devices or accessing your online accounts. Message bombing typically occurs over texting apps, chat apps, or email accounts.

Non-consensual, intimate images and videos (such as “revenge porn”)

Definition: Non-consensual pornography—or revenge porn, as it’s commonly called—is “the distribution of private, sexually-explicit images or videos of individuals without their consent,” according to the Cyber Civil Rights Initiative. Revenge porn can also fall under the category of “sextortion,” i.e. “the threat of distributing a nude or sexually-explicit image or video in an effort to blackmail an individual.”

Online Impersonation (or, Impersonation Trolling)

Definition: “Online impersonation” is a strategy whereby harassers create hoax social media accounts, usually in order to post offensive or inflammatory statements in your name. In most cases, the harasser’s intention is to defame or discredit you, often by convincing others to believe the fake quotes attributed to you, which might then incite others to commit additional acts of harassment. Impersonation trolling can also happen when a harasser impersonates someone you know in order to offend or hurt you.

Online Sexual Harassment

Definition: Online sexual harassment — which is targeted at women at a far higher rate than men — encompasses a wide range of sexual misconduct on digital platforms and includes some of the more specific forms of online harassment included in these T&Cs (see “revenge porn” and “cyberstalking”). It often manifests as hateful speech or online threats. The Project deSHAME report on young people’s experiences with this type of abuse outlines four distinct types of online sexual harassment:

Non-consensual sharing of intimate images and videos: As described above, this type of abuse — often referred to as “revenge porn” — is defined as the public distribution of sexually explicit images without the consent of the victim.

Exploitation, coercion, and threats: These forms of abuse are defined in the Project deSHAME report as “a person receiving sexual threats, being coerced to participate in sexual behaviour online, or blackmailed with sexual Content.”

Sexualized bullying: When someone is excluded from a group, often systematically, through the use of humiliating or discriminatory sexual Content.

Unwanted sexualisation: When a person receives “unwelcome sexual requests, comments and Content,” according to Project deSHAME.

Trolling

Definition: “Trolling” is one of those terms that’s evolved so much over time as to have no single agreed-upon meaning. Internet Users use the word to denote everything from serious acts of online hate speech to the playful distribution of memes and comments on a friend’s social media page.

Concern trolling: When harassers pose as fans or supporters of your work with the intention of making harmful or demeaning comments masked as constructive feedback. (According to Sarkeesian, “when targeting women, this is most often done through ‘helpful’ suggestions on how to improve one’s appearance. . . . The concern troll’s disingenuous comments are actually designed to undercut or demean you.”)

Dogpiling: When a group of trolls works together to overwhelm a target through a barrage of disingenuous questions, threats, slurs, insults, and other tactics meant to shame, silence, discredit, or drive a target offline.

A third category of online trolling that applies to writers and journalists includes:

 

Bot trolling/sockpuppet trolling: Bot accounts come in two flavours: automated accounts, which are controlled by a code or an app in order to impart a particular agenda, and individual accounts, which are set up by a single User with the intention of mimicking real Users (known as “sockpuppet” accounts). Bot accounts are used for a variety of reasons, from promoting propaganda to amplifying hate or defamation against targeted individuals. DFRLab describes the basic criteria for bots as “activity, amplification, and anonymity.” Signs you may be the target of bot trolling:

  • The same accounts are tweeting at you 24/7
  • The accounts use stolen or patriotic images as their profile picture
  • There are long gaps in said accounts’ activity
  • A disproportionate number of accounts that are simultaneously targeting you share the same Content, language, and/or graphics in their messages

While bot trolling can be just as exhausting and emotionally taxing as other forms of trolling, some targets of bot trolling are relieved to learn that this kind of attack isn’t personal, and that they’re not at risk of harm.
