VBulletin only has a tab called "infractions" where a member's infractions are listed, which makes perfect sense because the tab contains a listing of violations, and infraction is a synonym for a violation of a rule. Now, the reason why being "given an infraction" makes sense is because when you are "given an infraction" another infraction shows up under this tabbed listing. So you see the word infraction really isn't being abused, the use is only slightly changed, just like many other phrases in the English language.
