Perhaps dmatulewic doesn't understand the kind of harassment that can go on in a virtual world. The server I'm on had a guy that was threatening to kill several members of our guild over some silly loot issues. He then stalked the girlfriend of one of the guys that upset him and threatened to do all sorts of nasty things to her. It wasn't just some jerk spamming a few people to join his new guild, it was terrible, very damaging and the abuse went on way longer than it should have. You can keep your mindset that jerks can just be shrugged off, but it should be pointed out that things can get very "real" very fast even online.
