internetma - see smegma .  I like the suffix "ma" to denote something like smegma except in a different context.
The article on it's Greek etymology in medical terms maybe (or not) sheds light.
source: ... Even as early as the time of Hippocrates, it was customary to shorten a phrase of this kind by omitting the noun. Similarly, the Greek suffix -ma that was a means of forming a noun from a verb stem (as in drama and diploma ) fused with the linking vowel -o- appeared in English as the combining form -oma with the medical sense of 'tumor, neoplasm' because it figured in a number of ancient terms, such as sarcoma and condyloma denoting abnormal growths.
The ma character is of little help, which you may prefer to translate here.

so is what we have here a generalize suffix to trun a word into its derogitive?  Hmmm, let me try it ... Which do you prefer, Markma or Sethma?  Yeah, works for me.  So now we have Internetma and blogma ... hmmm google internetma ... google blogma.  Did u get the coin?

... apparently not, given this definition of blogma in the urban dictionary and this domain internetma.com.
internetma.com is French which puts the suffix use in question.  The suffix in my mind is not necessarily derogatory. It speaks to the amorphous, exudate nature of a kind of food (for bacteria or other creature) & of course any analogies according to the root of the word. Had I used the suffix "rrhea" as in the word gonorrhea you might have inferred that it was derogatory. For instance, internetorrhea or blogorrhea might be such words.

Me thinks that as a coined English word it will almost always be interpreted as derogatory ... the case of blogma is certainly a case in point.  Try taking any noun that is not already derogotary and adding "ma" to the end and look it up on Google and see if it is not being used as derogotory.  Some of the meanings of neologism are not always the choice of the author.
