    Remember that he was lectured once by Moon Dragon, after he finally unloaded and KO Orca that was 3X more powerful than his normal self...

    She said he watered his powers down, being among Humnas so much that he almost forgotten just how powerful he was, afraid to "let it go"...

    Almost like in JL cartoon when Supes "enjoyed" cutting loose on darkseid, as he knew that he could withstand his full power attack...

    Another reason for Thor to appear weaker at times?

    just as Supes raised among Humans, thinks like a Human, and "holds it back" afraid to hurt others?

I wondered how the Asgardians would be preceived by the humans if the gods cut loose and started killing them? The gods have no such mercy on giants, trolls and such I wonder how they would be preceived if they extended the same courtesy to the humans.  

I remember in an issue of Thor not wanting to kill the Wrecker during one of their earlier encounters when clearly he has the power to do so. Thor had to find a way to beat the Wrecker without killing him. In the Siege how do the gods not appear heartless by not holding back but going for the killing blow. If the gods are fighting a defensive fight while the humans are playing for keeps do the gods kill just to save themselves or die out of mercy to the humans?

You are waaaay overestimating the gods. The only Asgardians with any real power are Thor, Loki, and Odin. I give the warriors three, Baldar, Sif and whatsisname there on the bridge a little better than average Asgardian ability... but the rest of them are no tougher than Luke Cage. You assume they can just kill the humans if they wanted to, but it's nowhere near that easy. Norman has launched a serious threat on Asgard, and many of it's residents are in danger of their lives.
