Hi Sigal

sounds interesting. Like Cameron, I'd ask about what definition you have for "online graffitti"

- online archives of physical real-world graffitti
one of my favourites is Banksy's own site: http://www.banksy.co.uk/

- online spaces which are set up for free expression
(wow, this is so broad it could mean *anything*! perhaps, an online environment with a graphic tool set? anybody fancy trying to define this category?)

- defacement of existing online content?
years ago attrition kept an archive of hacked websites http://www.attrition.org/mirror/attrition/
I am not sure who might be keeping current lists?

good luck, let us know how you get on!

Are you asking about where you can find/see/study online graffiti? Or
about existing research about it?

Some examples of the former

As for the latter --
I remember a CHI poster or paper a few years ago about it... found it.
