A griefer is a player in a multiplayer video game who deliberately irritates and harasses other players.
You might say "Well, servers should have proper protection against griefers."
I'd say not necessarily, I think the players should be the ones thinking about what they are doing. It doesn't just frustrate the person who made the building/art/creation but the Server owner has to put up with an ugly destroyed building.
I don't see the point in greifing. It maybe funny but I see it as a different type of cyber-bullying/bullying.
A majority of servers don't allow griefing while most don't mainly the PvP servers allow it.
If it's allowed I don't see a problem with it but doing it when it's not allowed is really stupid.
Why can't people just follow the rules and have a good time that way?
Greifers - Think about it. What if someone was to grief your creations that took you time and effort? You wouldn't be too happy about it.
People that are victims of griefing - Just move on and build something else... If they continue to grief alert the server staff or move to a new server. Griefers tend to find it more fun when people scream with caps lock on in chat.
If you can't handle griefers I'd suggest a private server with a couple of trusted friends or play Single Player.

You guys aren't getting it.
I was never griefed.
I'm not getting "butthurt" over griefing.
I'm voicing my opinion.
