dot-com rage

Extreme anger caused by the perceived commercialization of the Internet.
Example Citation:
"But if dot-com rage turns out to be a factor in last week's attacks or others, I believe it should be seen not as a Robin Hood strategy to undermine the wealth of the e-commerce barons, but as a political statement akin to the protests in December in Seattle."
— Po Bronson, "Robin Hood Didn't Do It," The New York Times, February 14, 2000
