Recently the issue of curses came up on the board & there were a few different views posted. I have a few questions on the issue, I think it would be interesting & informative to hear everyone's point of view. I will post them in a few different posts for the sake of space & clarity.
My first question is a two-part question.1. Do you find casting curses or any spell that causes a person discomfort or harm unacceptable in all situations? 2. Do you hold the same to be true in mundane life? It seems we have a double standard (maybe rightly so, that can be part of the issue). In our lives most agree it is acceptable to defend with force your person & loved ones. Most of us find it acceptable to return aggressive rudeness with rudeness. Many of us don't have a problem pushing the drunk who is in our personal space touching us or making inappropriate comments. And so on. Do your mundane & magical standards match?

To answer my own questions. I do not believe that cursing is unacceptable, though I do believing in treading lightly & thinking hard on the subject. I hold the same to be true in the mundane. I will use force, hurt people with words, or cause others discomfort if I feel it is the right reaction. Again, I am careful about it. Premeditation is an issue that came to mind for me when considering the question. But again, I am willing to harm others in a premeditated way (physically or magically) if I determine that to be the best action.
