  11. What happens when you get an infraction.

    Some of you seem to think that infractions are jokes. Some members actually thought they were a badge of honor. They're not. When you break the rules, and the mods issue an infraction, this is what happens....automatically....by the forum software. Each infraction given is 1 "point". Based...
