Clarste mentioned the important bits, but Kirito had also practiced with swords when he was young (mentions this to Silica regarding his imouto). Although his grandfather's strict attitude ultimately turned him away from kendo he was still interested in swords and it is probably why he chose to use them in SAO. He had practiced with a shinai so a sword would naturally feel the closest or natural of all the weapons.

Doesn't sound like he practiced a lot. Moreover, kendo's mostly done two-handed. Kirito uses one-handed swords.

My guess is that swords are the most common quest rewards in SAO (it is called Sword Art Online), so as the floors go up you will definitely get a good sword from quest/drop and don't need to train a new skill.

Continuing with quests, in First Day he chose to do the quest for the Anneal Blade. As a beta tester he definitely tried out many quests, but he still chose to do the quest for Anneal Blade, the reason being it could be used up to the 3rd floor.
He most likely used 1h swords in the beta as well, so in the death game SAO has become, entrusting your life to a familiar weapon is vital.

If he's getting anything out of his two years of kendo, it's probably much more basic principles rather than any kind of sword technique. Like, trying to predict what his opponent's going to do by looking at their movements.

There's no complete listing, but one of the author's doujins, Material Edition 2, shows the skills the main characters have.

On the other hand, it contradicts some of what actually happens in the story, so you have to take it with a grain of salt. My understanding is that it's from the early planning stages.

It would be nice if there's something like a fan-made listing of all SAO skills mentioned in the LNs and ME stories.

Is setting up the Game of Death the only MO that Kayaba had?

You mean his only motive - MO in the law enforcement context is the acronym for modus operandi, which is Latin for "What is this guy's preferred method/mode of operation?"

...it's complicated.

not in town. Try that on the NPC and you will get slap for inappropriate behavior

This was somewhere outside, but the rules still apply when you are in a town.

Edit: Looks like I was a few seconds too late, even our quotes are the same

That's the gist of it.

BTW, it does not work when you're asleep.

Well, presumably it still works but since you're not awake you can't press the button.

It would have been funny if someone attempts Sleep-PK only to activate Anti-Harassment instead. XD

...ok we've been off-topic...ing...

Question: (Maybe I should save this for the Mechanics Thread... after all?)
