I participate in some online masters swim forums.  There are two members,
Aquageek and Wookie, who are always insulting each other.  It never
escalates, however.  After awhile you realize that they are obviously very
good friends and wonder how they will insult each other next.

I think it's best for all concerned to accept the occasional apparent insult
as something along those lines, especially if you don't personally know the
parties involved.  If the back-and-forth escalates into something you can't
plausibly interpret as online fun-poking, then, sure, call the
participant(s) on it.
