Claiming has a dual purpose. For decent avis it is used for protection against trolling type comments and troublemakers.
For the not so decent avis it is a way to clean the slate and try to reform.
Claiming isn't for hiding.
It puts the burden of proof onto the commenter by forcing them to provide picture proof instead of just being a hater.

After you claim, all you need to do is receive a maximum of 3 emails a week from us to stay in claimed status. Most of these emails will give you a chance to win goodies.
We will be doing random checks to make sure you are getting our emails... We don't want to waste our time or yours by sending emails to people that don't want them. If you fail these checks you lose the claimed status and comments will be reinstated.
Remember that people can post pics of you being rotten. So don't be.
You don't need to be a member to claim your avi but you still need to reply to check in emails.
