Aftenposten Nettutgaven, Local

Aftenposten Nettutgaven, Local: "Oslo University's (UiO) online forum for religious history students has featured public discussion at a level one expert called 'toilet wall debate'. Students have aired discriminatory remarks insulting Muslims, Jews, and women and university authorities have stepped in, newspaper Universitas reports.

A web site making up part of an interactive teaching project replacing seminars contained crass remarks and links to anti-Muslim content. The crudest comments, such as 'we're boycotting classes because there are too many Jewish books', were posted in a chat section restricted to about 120 students."

Welcome to the Internet. People's hate is so much purer when they don't have to let the person who hears it see their face.
