Onryo usually does not harm the wrongdoer directly because of honor culture (Honor Before Reason) mentality, prevalent among bushi class. As the wrongdoer was held responsible for the appearances of onryo he was also considered responsible for all the harm that the ghost caused to other people. And harming innocent people who gave no reason to be treated in such way (even taking into account a caste-based Values Dissonance) was extremely dishonorable. In the culture where men were expected to stoically withstand any direct torment, such dishonoring was considered extremely cruel punishment.
