Abstract
The present paper concentrates on the role of politeness strategies in on-line groups formed around an Internet message board dedicated to dieting. As the concept of weight is a sensitive part of people’s identity, it produces face-threatening acts as defined by Brown and Levinson (1978). The aim of this paper is to show which positive politeness strategies are used to minimize these threats and how they differ depending on participants’ sex. Moreover, it also intends to examine how positive politeness strategies function to enhance community spirit and keep an on-line community alive.
