We agree. It's called ABUSE.

We do not agree. Abuse is ABUSE. Abusers are ABUSERS. There's no
other color to paint that. Abusers get a taste of their own medicine,
or else DON'T DO IT. If they don't care how others' feel, then an
apology won't repair it - public retribution will be sought, and GAINED.

Mindful people have the wisdom to discern the difference between a valid
point made (even with evident strong emotions or even offensive(sic)
language present), and the reasons you outline in your first paragraph.
I don't tolerate abuse, and I will call-out and name abusers at any time
and in any place, without care or regard for my personal safety.
Always show kindness - up to the point where kindness is taken for weakness.
