    Your warning points are sooooo fat ...

    OK, that wasn't funny. Genuine question though. Warning points. I have noticed provision for said points on every user's profile page. I would be grateful for an explanation as to how one might come by them or a link to such an explanation if such link exists.

    Thanks in advance

    Sincerely
    How ard on earth do I not have any warning points?

    We don't use them but if it makes you feel better I have given you a warning point. Please look after it.

    No this is silly, the whole premise is silly and very badly written. I'm the senior officer here and I've not had a funny line yet so I'm stopping it.

    Dear Barry

    Thank you for the warning point awarded 10 or so months ago. I have had much from it, but alas it is now worn out.

    I'm writing in the hope that I may have another.

    Kind Regards
    Howard

    I didn't realise warning points would be a desired commodity. Perhaps I should issue them as incentives for participation in my pet projects, like Diplomacy Game #2.

    That's the essential difference between an academic beast and a commercial one! The former realises what they are, while the latter realises what they could be

    Now, less chat and more action please
