As staff has said repeatedly, "one line posts" that add to the flow of conversation will not result in a warning. Posts such as "shut up" or a line of smilies will result in a warning. Also, as indicated about, one-line warnings and big-quote warnings do subtract 20 points from your points total for each warning.
