I'm inclined to agree. The reactions seem a little paranoid, understandably, but still.It may be that I'm talking from a very male perspective, but - while I see that what the husband did was wrong, men do this kind of thing all the time. He knows that, as is clear from the way he responds to being confronted. I imagine that they probably just started chatting innocently and got closer for whatever reason without really noticing it until it had gone too far.I think part of the problem is not that the husband is capable of this - I'm pretty sure everyone is - but that WoW is such a weird social setting that people have difficulty in understanding the boundaries of appropriate social conduct. You see all the time that people can be far ruder and more confrontational than you would expect of RL, there's often difficulty in comprehending quite what is 'real' i.e. the humans at the other end of the wire and the consequences that your actions have outside of WoW.
