Besides meaning crossing a line in a bad way, it can mean crossing a boundary between any two things. Like.... he crossed the line between business and pleasure.
I am not rich.  :L

Actually I don't think it's used quite right in that case.


"But for me, this crossed the line."  -- I think he's talking about a different incident, which is the subject of this interview or discussion.  Although he had acted a bit excessive before, he does not think those earlier incidents were that serious.  But this time, he believes it was morally wrong.

我觉的是"就做过头了",但他们的翻译是说"超越了良心的底线",觉的不太忠实于原文.


原文后面有 morally,所以我上面用了“道德的底线”。道德跟良心是有一点不同。
