Educational Email or formal Strike on the Ladder of Punishment?
Yesterday, I received the attached email:
This email is from the same person, and identically phrased, as the similar email I received nearly on year ago in November of '22. Same issue, same threat against my in-game accounts.
So my question is - is this an educational email, or a formal warning? Note that there are no allegations of abuse in this email. The text just says that I'm doing something vaguely wrong. I review on my single account, don't use plug-ins of any type, judge each nomination on its individual merits, do my best to verify location, don't blanket-accept or blanket-reject, take ample time to verify location based on the information available....and obviously I'm on this forum and the Wayfarer pages every day, trying to keep current on criteria always. If this is a formal warning, Ladder Rung #1 on the punishment ladder, I'd like to begin the appeal process BEFORE I get any in-game suspensions for similar actions....because I truly don't know what I did wrong. I suspect I'm being threatened due to a difference of opinion about what makes a great, eligible nomination, and not because of any true violations - so why the mention of "future violations" and bans?
I've really slowed down my reviewing pace since I got the last email in 2022. I did, though, participate in the last Global challenge. After getting this last email, should I quit reviewing altogether?
