Abstract

In this article, the author tries to examine phenomena called "Enjou" (burning-up) in Japanese, in which certain blogs or bulletin boards are attacked by anonymous mobs with criticism and insults The author then examines the difference of these phenomena from other previous troubles, and suggests that the cause may somewhat from certain characteristics of Japanese internet, especially high anonymity. The author, however, points out that not all anonymity is bad. and it could be useful to classify the objectors into 4 categories. As a result, the author suggests that a self-reinforcing spiral between "Bad Guys" is responsible to these problematic phenomena and we should continue to examine the process.
