Framing Flames: The Structure of Argumentative Messages on the Net.
Mabry, Edward A.
Journal of Computer-Mediated Communication, v2 n4 Mar 1997
Assesses the use of the strategic message structuring tactic known as framing. Analyzes 3,000 messages obtained from a diverse sampling of computer-mediated discussion groups and forums. Finds that a speaker's emotional involvement was significantly and curvilinearly related to two message framing devices (message dependency and coalition building) and a measure of conciliatory face-saving moves.
