It seems that they’re rather selective on who they take action on. Plenty of big authors get away with things that smaller authors could never get away with. It’s sort of like how YouTube is reluctant to take action against their big content creators because of the influence and money they bring to the platform.
What I fail to understand is why they went through the trouble of writing guidelines to follow if they’re just going to turn a blind eye to a larger creator who may have violated them. Guidelines are guidelines, if they’ve been broken then you need to enforce them fairly or not at all; this pick-and-choose game gets real tiring.
