(B) Publicly insulting such other person by abusive words or gestures in a manner intended and likely to provoke a violent response;

(2) A person is criminally liable for harassment if the person knowingly permits any telephone or electronic device under the person’s control to be used in violation of subsection (1) of this section.
(3) Harassment is a Class B misdemeanor.
(4) Notwithstanding subsection (3) of this section, harassment is a Class A misdemeanor if a person violates subsection (1) of this section by subjecting another person to offensive physical contact and the offensive physical contact consists of touching the sexual or other intimate parts of the other person.
You might want to consider how (B) applies to you and others here.
What (B) is actually saying is that if you start shit, don't be surprised if you get worse shit back. The entire purpose of this site, Panda's Thumb, and Pharyngula is to start shit.
