Well, yes, while I'm in passive mode I'm not necessarily running from any immediate threat (let's ignore the possibility of hackers; as they can blow you up, at will, remotely). Thing is, I rarely maintain passive mode, as that makes a number of things difficult (Defending myself against overzealous police, destroying targets per [NPC]'s request, robbing convenience stores, completing daily challenges for bonuses...). And there's almost never a good reason to stand your ground when a considerably higher-leveled player is after you, because the ground you stand on is not even.

A third thing to keep in mind, is that although the ingame insurance exists for the sole purpose of replacing cars lost to random jerkery - it has many bugs associated with it, and those cars you blew up might not get replaced as intended, which forces your targets to contact Rockstar Support, which can take upwards of three weeks to resolve.

Also, keep in mind if their vehicles were expensive and insured; YOU are on the hook for destroying them. So your "shoot rockets first, ask questions later" strategy can end up getting rather expensive for you.

On the one hand, I'm fully in favour of "don't be a dick unless provoked". On the other hand a whole swarm of level 100s swarming around the building I (a considerably lower leveled player) just got out of? Yeah, I'm going to assume I'm the target of whatever they have planned and take action. Although my preference is passive mode and run away, an explosion does give a nice "back the eff off" message.

So, do you have any proof to back this up, or are you just having fun with the "arrow to the knee" meme? The accepted answer has tested proof that there is no locational damage in (unmodded) Skyrim.
