Everyone has buttons. Push the right one, and it's very easy to tip someone over the edge of rationality. For example, if a person is normally a pretty cool guy, but goes completely ballistic on the off chance that someone gets under his skin, say for example, let's say he's had a really bad day, and now his family is insulted/cursed/slandered by another rager in-game (something that for one reason or another is of particular offense to this person, and that only a small handful of other things could possibly trigger), does that mean the first guy is also a chronic rager worthy of a ban? I'd argue no.
Please note I'm not saying it's ever OK to do that, just that you can't necessarily condemn someone for awful behavior from one or two incidents.
