Kaschenism is a specific style of conversation in forums, blogs, Fido echos, etc. used by some people in Russian FidoNet and Internet. Its main feature is provocativeness and mockery while being formally polite. Historically, Kaschenist style uses many words and idioms of Jewish origin, and in conversations Kashenists often pretend to beJews, that’s because it makes anti-Semites annoyed and angry, and makes other people make excuses and prove that they are not anti-Semites. Also it is typical for Kaschenist style to use medical terms, especially from psychiatry, that’s because Kaschenists consider themselves jocularly as “network psychiatrists”, and imitate either medical staff or, on the contrary, patients of a mental hospital. The word Kaschenism also denotes a philosophy of people who use Kaschenist style in electronic conversations.
