    We give out a lot of infractions. None of them are personal, they're to tell you that you've broken the rules and what you need to avoid in future. These are examples of recent replies to infractions.

    This is a *good* way to reply:


    This is less good...


    If you're genuinely not sure why you got the infraction, feel free to clarify but make it polite and civil, like:



    Sidenote: I'm not sure why people are convinced I'm stalking them but I've heard this at least twenty or so times. To clear it up - most of you just aren't that fascinating. Sorry.

    @Apricot if someone reports you, do you have to give yourself a warning?

    Um, yes? I am a mod. It's hard to do it without being aware of it.

    Please, we don't get anything as easy as adding a couple of points to our own profile. It's a demanding process that involves talking to yourself about what you did wrong. It can get pretty intense.

    It takes as long as it takes. But the better you are at describing your service accurately, providing the information we're after and following instructions, it'll go faster. Just to be aware, most of the sellers that have gone through the review process don't tend to like me very much afterwards :D
