This article explores issues of authenticity, identity, privacy, power, community, and gender as they occur in online spaces. Using the Cybermind mailing list as a case study, Marchall highlights how gender is used as a category in online spaces, and what effect this has had on the community, including in offline, 'in the flesh' meetings. He also demonstrates that offline markers of identity cannot help but be significant in the online world.
