    You don't have any, but if you did, it would show you when you view your profile. You would automatically receive a PM, as well. And, for the record, other members cannot see that you have received an infraction so there is no stigma attached top them. They are simply a tool that allows us to attempt to correct the problem and keep a record so we can tell if the problem is repeated later. Warning are just that, a warning with no infraction points. Most, but not all, infractions expire after an amount of time and are really not anything to be concerned about....

    Gotta weed out the Bozos
    Some people just feel the need to poke a sleeping dog, Brainbat420 got bit!
    I keep comin' around here because it's a good place to be, with some pretty intelligent people with good insight on things I normally don't think of (law stuff), plus some really good advise.
    Keep up the good work Bumper and staff!!

    gotta be a line somwhere. some are on one side of too much, and others on the side of too little. if you didnt put enough into the work of an organization, you dont get to draw all the lines.

    its fair here. you'll adapt. and some language is, after all, called offensive for a reason.

    The General is sorry to be informed that the foolish and wicked practice of profane cursing and swearing, a vice heretofore little known in the American Army, is growing into fashion. He hopes that Officers will, by example as well as influence, endeavor to check it, and that both they and the men will reflect that we can have little hope of the blessings of heaven on our arms if we insult it by our impiety and folly. Added to this, it is a vice so mean and low, without any temptation, that every man of sense and character detests and despises it.

    All I can add is thank you to our administrators, y'all do a great job. If not I wouldn't be here, nor would a lot of others folks.

    Usually infraction points are set to expire after a certain passage of time.

    I saw some of this post this morning then went on with my day. I can't believe it is still going...and it may have morphed into something completely different.

    My 2 cents -- why cuss when you don't need to? It sure doesn't make you appear to be any smarter.
