We propose a mechanism to alleviate the aggression on Computer Mediated Communications. A title reflecting the aggressivity of comments posted by the user is displayed on screen. The effects of the proposed mechanism are verified with laboratory experiment, where participants post comments after reading the topics of discussion and other participants’ comments. The results indicate the validity of the proposed mechanism.
