Because the Internet is a social space, it has many of the problems associated with social interactions. "Bad" or inappropriate behavior is an important problem in many online social settings. However, it appears that methods to cope with and correct such behavior do not fully capitalize on some useful social influence mechanisms that are available. In this paper, I explore some of the more social explanations for online aversive behavior and methods to combat such behavior that are based on the explanations.
