** After Ron becomes a prefect, Percy sends him a congratulatory letter.

Once Ron reads that part, he tears the letter to pieces before tossing the letter into the fire.

** Possibly case of YMMV since what Marietta did ,could (& almost did) result in expulsion & subsequent destruction of future prospects for a large number of students including her best friend , '''at the very least'''. And it should be pointed out ( & has been, elsewhere in this page) that several other students had parents working in the Ministry & did not rat out their friends. So many might understandably find Marietta's pimples a just dessert.

* BrokenAesop: One of the reasons Harry and the others rebelled against Umbridge was her use of the Blood Quill, which scars students. This becomes hypocritical when Hermione sets up a Jinx on the sign-up sheet to Dumbledore's Army, which permanently disfigures traitors.
