Summary/Abstract: The paper focuses on the issue of impoliteness in computer-mediated communication (CMC). The specific features of CMC that differentiate it from face-to-face communication are believed to promote crude expression of opinions, especially in anonymous discussion boards, regardless of the linguistic background of their users. The theory of impoliteness is presented to provide a theoretical background for the research into the language of discussion boards. The research aims at discovering the impoliteness strategies that are employed by Polish and English users and the frequency with which the identified strategies occur in the selected discourse.
