Hey everyone! I've got a question I'm hoping you can help me out with. In the past week, I've received two books (from separate people) that I've had to mark RWAP. They were significant problems, one with stains and water damage, and one with a 2 inch or so gouge at the top of the spine which caused the pages to separate from the binding. My worry is will this look bad for me and my account here? Will it look like I'm trying to cause a ruckus and get "free" credits by asking these people for my credits back? I just don't know if the powers above look for things like RWAP abuse or anything like that. I've never had any problems with receiving books since I started here, so I'm just a little worried (not to mention a bit disheartened.) If you could help me out, I'd really appreciate it! Thanks! Jen

I wouldn't worry about it unless you mark a really high percentage of the books you receive as RWP.  But we all get some here and there, sometimes close together.  If you marking every other book RWP, you might get a warning to make sure you aren't trying to scam people for free books.
