Granted a games administrators can moderate their game chat however they deem necessary, but seriously if someone came up to you in real life or started shouting "you suck!" at Wal-Mart or w/e shop you decide to go to, do you call the police and say "that man hurt my feelings!". Nope, you'd go home and complain to your significant other or friends. Granted at some point someone will grow a pair of balls and probably kick that person shouting obscene things in the face, but there would be no repercussions from authorities(aka moderators)
Its a game.
If you are going to use a right that has been granted to you in order to defend the behavior of such disrespectfull people then know what you are talking about. Free Speech is NOT the freedom to say anyhting you see fit. Free Speech does not extend to privately owned property, the game belongs to Riot as does your account and they can remove you from the game for what ever reason they deem acceptable. Being sensitive to such vulgar comments by others is not being weak minded and to even think so is completely nieve.
The fact of the matter is that this player broke the rules, not that someone has been oversensitive. If you cannot follow the rules then do not play the game.
Your example of some random person in Walmart insulting me has no correlation to this scenario at hand. In that case I would tell the to stuff it and carry on. If they did continue to harass me and refused to leave me alone then yes I would not hesitate report it as harassment is against the law. They would not be arrested but a file would be put in their record and they would be escorted out by the police causing them embaressment. That is not me being weak minded or a "wimp", that is me standing up for my right to not be harassed and defending that. Oh and if you decide to "grow a pair" and hit the person insulting you, now you have broken the law and assaulted him which can result in jail time.
Nothing infuriates me more than an American that doesn't properly understand the rights that I am overseas fighting for them to have or them waiving them around as a shield so they can do what ever they want. If you are going to cite your rights to defend what you are saying then study and know them in detail.
