Flirting is pretty rare on many (most?) combat MUDs.  The player
concentration is GOP play with minor socialising, where the
socialising is usually limited to current events or public media
commentary.  Note: This is using either of the below flirt
definitions.

Which seems the core of the US vs UK difference in definition of
"flirt".  US tags anything remotely sensual as "flirting", while the
UK stresses an inferred or implicit erotic content.

It would be pretty trivial to do.  The graphics requirements are
simplistic at best.  Even crude cartoon-level animation would probably
go over big.  A giggling version of Jane with biggier over-stuffed
brassieres would probably go over brilliantly.
