The Simon Wiesenthal Center.

* Is bigotry on the Internet a problem? The Simon Wiesenthal Center says that it is, and it compiled a list of 3,000 sites called "Digital Hate 2001." But the center seems to have a broad definition of "hate." Many mainstream conservative and pro-gun groups were listed alongside white supremacists and neo-Nazis. Among them: the popular news site WorldNetDaily, Women Against Gun Control, and the conservative think tank the Free Congress Foundation. Following complaints, the center pulled the list from its site and promised to review it before releasing a revised version. But it refused to answer questions about how it compiled the list or how it defined a hate site.
