comment What do you call someone who is favored by a higher authority?
Apparently there is a trend among some that words should only have the meanings that they are familiar with and that any suggestion that language has more depth and dimension than they have experienced is irrelevant. It's okay to use words in the way they are defined in the dictionary. We have dictionaries and other references to hold the vast amount of information that won't readily fit inside small minds.

What's your question? You could remove either "because" or "so" as their purpose is redundant in relating a premise to a conclusion.

comment A less hostile word that can replace “violation”
You need to get a dictionary and start looking words up. An exception is not necessarily accepted. The whole software world deals with exceptions handlers that do something about exceptions besides notice them.

comment A less hostile word that can replace “violation”
Your whole question is predicated on a faulty understanding of the word "violation". "Breaking the terms of a law" implies malintent as much as falling through a glass window (breaking the glass) implies malintent.
