I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it's topic is better covered as writing advice.

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.

Members' drinking habits generally follow the "monkey see, monkey do" principle.

comment Idiom/expression that means “canceling” an event from your calendar?
Yes, you can say that. Or "I axed my trip to London." "I scrubbed my plan to go to London." "My London trip has been called off." Or "With all this work we have, our weekend in London will have to be shitcanned."

comment Word for “scheduled activities”?
Generally, it wouldn't be said the way you propose in your example, even if a single word were found to fit. A more likely statement might be something like "I checked my schedule AND (not BUT) realized I had no plans. Also, a subtle problem with the form you offered is that you can't check something that doesn't exist. You can have a schedule or an agenda that is empty, but you can't have a something that doesn't exist (even if it's mental).

comment “The app can be run using the following link” - how to phrase it naturally?
A more natural statement might be something like "Use (or Type) this link to run the app: http//...". But you might invert the phrase if you want it to be easily found (at the beginning of a paragraph, for instance) when someone is looking for the answer to "how do I run it?". Then "To run the app, use the following link: http://..."

comment What's an accurate term for “technical terminology” in the sentence:
Have you tried a thesaurus? There are at least 40 words that are synonyms to "jargon". Some of them actually fit your need.

It's not that simple. E.g., There was a rumor (this morning) that... perfectly describes a continuing condition.

comment What is a good antonym for “redundant” (engineering)?
As an engineer with may years of experience, I would vouch for this answer. But it would be better to include some examples in your answer. A simple Google search on phrases like "non-redundant design", "non-redundant electrical design", "non-redundant mechanical design", and "non-redundant systems", would provide many examples of its use. Comments don't provide enough room to link to them. (I understand this might be a circular argument, but, apart from my own experience, it does show that the term is widely used.)
