I've seen others get passive-aggressive angry when someone "targeted" them. They will try to hit or embarrass them on the next shots throughout the set. While others (like me) don't seem to care if they get a ball screamed at them.
I guess it's an etiquette thing, and will depend on the personality of the players in both situations (social and competitive).
Actually it is a tactics thing. If Pros change formation from first serve to second, then you have to ask yourself "why am I playing at the net on my partner's second serve?"
