I got a well deserved infraction for being a retard, but is there something I am supposed to do upon getting one? What are the consequences?

I got a 3-point-infraction once with a one-day-ban, but when the ban was over the infraction was already expired as well.. never knew what the infraction did, actually.

Depending on how many points you get, it can affect how long you wait between posts. Other than that, I think it's just to make you feel ashamed.

I thought they reduced your rep. points or power, because they show up as red blobs and have points connected to them. Only ever had a one-pointer though, I'm a good boy. ^_^

Yeah, to stop you from doing it again.

Not as far as I know, but I'm still on my learners :p

But if you get too many points within an amount of time you get an automatic ban (I think), if you ignore an infraction like the sig violation you will get your sig privileges removed, but it doesn't happen automatically.

Haha, I got an infraction for Inappropriate Language back in Jan 2007 and it's still in my CP. I don't think they ever go away.

I didn't think it was that bad, but I've spoilered it in case there are small children or womenfolk reading.

Well, then you're a moron. Simple as that. I'm not going to sugar-coat it for you.

But, hey, I'll give you a chance to redeem yourself. If you can accurately explain exactly why HP/L is an important figure when it comes to "sports cars," I might downgrade you from Utter Fuckwit status.

Fuck me, I'm glad the bosses seem to be cool with slightly inappropriate language now.
