Otherwise they may be removed with no further justification. Likewise, accounts that have not been used for posting may be removed.

Thanks for your understanding.

'reaputation' for 'reputation'

You reap what you sow, and what you reap is your reaputation. About 200 ghits:

While he cheerfully cultivates a reaputation as a carefree scoundrel, he is at
heart a being of kind heart and generous nature…

...the party gets too big, the police go crazy, there are more arrests and incidents and the band gets a very bad reaputation …

Gerrard is the best in the world, bar none and its about time Sven actually looked past the reaputation of players and picked our best 11.

I find it way worse to not be able to preserve your brand and your reaputation
than to not have it in the first place.

Except, unlike real life, people arent more apt to shop at a Store because of
their reaputation. they usually just want the cheapest price.
