However the possibility also needs to be considered that the victim is too easily offended, or that they really just dislike the person and act offended at everything they say. For example, there have been players in the past (I won't mention names) who have been offended by the concept of pking, believing it to be akin to murdering someone in real life, or believing it to be against their religion. I do not believe such cases should be taken seriously or result in punishment for the so-called offensive person. So in any abusive situation I think two factors need to be considered: 1. Was someone offended? 2. Was their offense reasonable? Obviously as you said, defining "reasonable" is never going to be easy, because that is subjective. However I think generally the cases which become problems revolve around things that are widely accepted as being offensive e.g. racist remarks, excessive swearing/insults, RL threats, etc. [/quote]
