Subject: 3 WL books With Split Spines...

I have received 3 packages this week both with Wish books and all 3  have had split spines.  I also ordered an extra book from one of the senders shelves and it also had a split spine with a clump of pages falling out. (sender mentioned Hot weather and glue?)   I have reported all 3 and the member who sent the '2' has gladly refunded my credits and I am waiting for the 2nd-3rd senders to respond.

I have also received 2 boxes with books from 'deals' off the bazaar and books from those boxes also had split spines.  I did not request a credit refund because the books were not ones 'ordered' and it seemed trivial, but now...with my WL books arriving the same way is making me question whether or not My requesting my credits back for these books is some how a mark against me as I have had to do it 3 times in a row.  Does it effect my status in any way by doing a slue of 'reporting' all in a short period of time?   I appreciate any thoughts on this.

I used to think that a cracked spine was considered a separation and that such a book was not postable. But according to a previous discussion, if the pages are still attached and not loose TPTB have said the book is postable.
