Thompsen, Philip A.; Foulger, Davis A.
Computers in Human Behavior, v12 n2 p225-43 Sum 1996
Examines the perception of flaming (hostile verbal behavior) in electronic mail by exploring, in the context of five escalating levels of socioemotional intensity, the effects of pictographs (typographic symbols used to express emotion) and quoting. Results suggest pictographs and quoting can vary in perceived intensity and meaning, depending on the context. (Author/AEF)
