Frustration with the community and asking for way too many penalties for the PvP server, thats why I might ignore the gank, on the other hand the PK(s) would offer a better challenge so I'd probably still attack them but it wouldn't be for the lowbies at this point if I did.
I understand trying to protect lowbies but lets not get too carried away with all the penalties.
Valk's idea for everyone being perma-red wouldn't work in traditional terms of PvP but I could easily see a similar system on a Hardcore PvP server.
I guess it depends on the level gap. Truth be told I've never really "fought" anyone 6 levels below me, anyone that low ended up being one shot pretty much lol and I never had a hoard of them even try to attack me.
Closest thing I can relate this to is:
I was ganked by 5 PKs once, I was level 26 they were 23, they ended up killing me eventually because the next safe-zone was a good 5 minute+ run away(without people attacking me). Their group consisted of a priest,mystic,zerker,sorc and slayer. I just couldn't DPS enough in my level 21 white gear on my warrior to drop either of the healers and the safe-zone was so far away it was fight back and possibly win or die running for sure. I don't think another 3 levels would have made them ignoreable just easier to kill.
