Comprehensive explanation of what will be slapped  Explanation of board rules

 Oops! You get your first pink slap (moderation notice):



Hello XXXXXXX,
Recently we became aware that your eBay registered account was involved in the
following activity:
Posting material containing profanity, vulgarity, hate speech, disruptive or
hostile comments, interpersonal disputes or threats of violence. (This includes
masking profanity, name-calling and rude behaviour).  For clarification of this
policy, please visit this page:

which is not permitted at eBay.

This is a copy of your post:

Some people here aren't very nice (example only as it would be against policy to post a genuine slapped post)


We realize that you may not have been aware there was a rule against this
activity. Therefore, we would like to take this opportunity to invite you to
review our site policies, which can be found at:
http://pages.ebay.com.au/help/community/png-board.html
Please understand our goal is to help you understand our policies to ensure
successful experiences at eBay. Therefore, we respectfully request that you
refrain from this activity in the future to avoid the possibility of a
suspension of your eBay registration.
Thank you for your cooperation in this important matter.
Regards,
Axxxxxx
