I'm a busy person.

I had read the book, updated that I'd finished it, and started to draft a review.

Then today, I get the e-mail reminder that the reminder bot sends out when we report that we read a book, but do not submit a review for a week. OK, no problem. Also a warning about the reduction in points. Again, no problem. If I can't control my time, I can pay for it with a points reduction.

But what's with the new paragraph at the top implying that I am planning to steal the book by accepting it for free and then not reviewing it? Is this really necessary?
