I live and breathe this stuff. :) I fact, I was pleased to see an essay I
commissioned from a player on LegendMUD several years ago
(http://mud.sig.net/Lectures/essay.html) as one of the citations, as "THE
essay on ethics in muds" or some such...! The psychologist Chuck Haeberle
references there is Bruno Bettelheim, btw.

Without some thinking on issues like this, it's hard to be an effective
admin. It's a good thing to frame player actions in a framework wherein they
are consistent and make sense. Because without that framework, both their
actions are yours are likely to seem arbitrary.
