In gaming, players can be temporarily or permanently banned if they behave inappropriately and, for example, insult other players or spread hate speech.

Counter Speech

Counter Speech in relation to "online hate" describes the linguistic reaction to hate speech and agitation. You try to take the strategy of the hater into account. It has been proven that empathetic counter speech has a de-escalating effect.


Cyberbullying describes systematic online attacks against individuals, e.g. in the form of threats, harassment or embarrassment. Unlike "hate speech," cyberbullying does not aim at entire groups, but at an individual.

Fake News

Fake news is information that conveys false claims or misrepresents facts. They can appear as text, but also in the form of images or videos, and are used for targeted and strategic opinion manipulation.

Filter Bubble

Filter bubbles lead to receiving information online that corresponds only to one’s own opinion. They arise from algorithms that analyze the activities of users on the internet and pre-select content accordingly. Through this mechanism, other arguments and perspectives are left out, which are important for forming one's own opinion.


Hate speech describes linguistic attacks that are inhuman and directed against individuals or groups of people. The assumption causing this behavior is that other people are less worthy, for example, because of their origin, sexual orientation, or gender.

Love Speech

"Love Speech" means something like "Nice and warm language". It is based on the idea of – in contrast to "hate speech" – spreading positive and peaceful language. Likewise, "love speech" can be understood as a possible reaction to hate speech, which can have a de-escalating effect.


The term “Netiquette” refers to rules, e.g. in social networks, that are intended to maintain friendly and fair online interaction. The term is composed of the English "net" and the French "etiquette" (rules of conduct).


The term "noob" is a pejorative term in the gaming scene, used to describe other players as bad and unable to learn.


The term “shitstorm” describes the sudden and massive occurrence of negative criticism, usually in the form of comments in social media. The cause may be certain statements or actions that displease the public. A shitstorm can hit individuals, but also companies or organizations.
