The distinction at play is, one party doesn't hound the other across multiple threads picking fights whenever they see the other post. Nor do they, for that matter, spam unspoiled porn when they get some flak back, for that matter.
I don't expect you to play polite police. I've certainly never made a case for that, nor have I ever suggested anything of the sort. If you know my history, both here and elsewhere, I'm certainly more than capable of being impolite.
Politeness is irrelevant.
My annoyance is at clear rule violation without consequence.
What's the point of having rules, if they functionally don't exist?
