Title says enough, players can still kill another player in neutral sectors by pushing him through a gate while he is offline. This makes the neutral sectors quite useless as they still can be used to grief.
It happens quite often on our server and is very hard to control due to the absence of death/pvp logs.

Haven't played multiplayer yet, but player ship will remain in the space even when the player goes offline? That doesn't make sense at all.

Yeah they do..

We've luckily developed a mod that protects players ships against PvP damage or on logoff to stop the griefer but either way it's a nasty mechanic because the griefer doesn't even earn anything from it besides being able to salvage the ship.

I had the same problem before (and posted about it before, too). I lost 3 freighters, 2 cruisers, 1 battleship and 3 stations because of this crap. What I usually do now is build asteroid like ships and block gates.
If I had access to the server, I'd mod the neutral sector generator script and remove the gates spawning script.
