Hate comments on the Internet are increasing and are directed primarily against moderators, reported Verena Kober from the ZDF judicial office. Comments ranged from extremely derogatory remarks to death threats. "We report every criminally relevant process."

In addition to these three stations, the law enforcement authorities and the media supervisory authority – the state media authority – the radio stations bigFM and Rocklandradio as well as the daily newspapers are also participating in the project "Rheinpfalz", "Rhein newspaper", "general newspaper" and "Trierian friend of the people".

Society will have to solve this problem in the next few years. "We will regulate very little with criminal law, most we will regulate with education"said Eumann.
