To what extent?

No, not by persons, individually.  Otherwise language wouldn’t exist, because 
it’s just the same with meaning.  Each person has per meaning.  Now emotions 
as well as examples, recalls, definitions… in a word: meanings, are social, so 
carried by group of people, by culture (it doesn’t impede society to 
continually change through time and space in a continuous and fluid manner).

Yes, but keep in mind what could be understood (in both senses: receptor and 
emitter).  Insult are a convention, so are all emotional charges.  Insults are 
just an extreme of this.
