I think you're over-simplifying this.
You are suggesting players report other players who do this. That means we have to catch them on when they are pking and follow them around to see who they might be targeting with their chase script. If we then send a bogus message and we happen to get the wrong target, they will know something is up and disable the script and our chance is gone.
That would be extremely time consuming and to be honest, we don't currently have the Staff for that. Vampa's been super busy, Itesh has thankfully been around some but he is working on a project. The lower level imms don't have the necessary commands. Cynthiel and Cerys are currently occupied with RL, which essentially leaves me. This sort of thing would be so time consuming it would essentially bring every other activity to a halt, not to mention put a dent in my play time if I saw a suspect on during my play time.
It's just not tenable.
