Interpretation is key.

Yes. The law isn't there to protect people's feelings, it's there to protect people's rights. You do not have a right to avoid insult.

Define insult, calling a Neo-Nazi prick a fucking waste of life who should commit suicide isn't an insult in my books..It's merely giving good advice.

Insulting is acceptable, but hate speech is another thing.

Insulting people can qualify as harassment depending on the nature of the insult, the context in which it's spoken, and the frequency at which one is insulting someone, but it might not. So I'm going to have to go with maybe.

The freedom to insult, the freedom to get offended, the freedom to move on with your life, yes.

In real life depends on your status, on the internet less so.

Under the freedom of speech, you are allowed to insult people or groups of people. You are not, however, allowed to threaten people. This is why racial supremacist and anti-government groups are allowed to exist, albeit under heavy monitoring from the FBI.
