Time for 'Proper English' Campaign??

Please do not drop the weights and place them back accordingly after used.

Violators against such behavior will result to termination of membership without any refund

The above warning was printed and displayed prominently in a local, large-scale, crowded and multi-location gym in Singapore. Read and TRY to understand what it is trying to convey. Take a step back, and I think I know what it wants to say, but grammatically, I just can't figure out which side it is trying to support! It is a good ground for a lawsuit in the event of non-compliance with this rule!

Is it a result of over-emphasis on 'Speak Mandarin' campaign? Talk about irony...
