I'm a long time RPer in a lot of platforms, table top, larp, MMOs ect yet I've seen lots of differing standards and expectations in various games. In online games where an age limit is in force obvious things apply such as foul language et al, yet I've not seen anything regards sparring.

From what I understand (having a long IM chat with another player) the basic format is to take it in turns with various actions in an RP format? ie play A insults B who then performs and action then A responds and so on.

So, as the title suggests what are the Dos and Don'ts for this? I suggested a face slap as my PC was a female LM but I was surprised to hear this was a don't.

Opinions please.
