Back from Vacations (or rather, Infractions)

Most of you probably noticed that I was gone from the forums for two weeks and my nick was crossed out, meaning that I was banned. But I don't care... I got deserved vacations from Bulbagarden. But now I'm back.
Do you want to know why I was banned? That's right. Because of Kotone. Now I totally have a reason to hate her. But I wonder how it's possible that I wasn't punished for my signature for so long. Many people, including admins, have seen it numerous times. And suddenly I get banned for that. I guess that Bulbagarden isn't a thing that has its logic.
However, the infraction for the signature was just a final kick to already-lying me. The punch that decided on my ban earlier was practically undeserved. I got 4 infraction points for saying to an other user that he "doesn't know anything". Evkl interpreted that as an implication that the other user was mentally disabled. I mean, WHAT THE HELL?! Were those words really so hard to understand? Are you ALWAYS taking everything so literally, Americans? It's really stupid. Not to mention that the other user didn't feel offended or anything. The reaction of the other user should be the measure of the post abusiveness, NOT admin's subjective interpretation. Not to mention that I WASN'T flamewarring with that user.
So, I'm living with 21 infraction points. It's over the ban limit but somehow I'm breathing. However, I think that it's at least "not needed".
As thou rememberst correctly, I got [b]15 permanent infraction points[/b] for one post. It's COMPLETELY against the Infraction System (which wasn't all that different from today's one back then). I mean, 10 points and another 5 from a different admin, just because of one post. Not to mention that it wasn't anything objective. It was all about opinions. Some may agree with them, some may not. I think that 5 points was all I deserved for that. Because indeed, that was a flamewar.
I'm not, by any means, asking for total amnesty. But believe me, I'VE ATONED FOR THAT POST LONG AGO ALREADY. I'm not taking such active part in "unsafe" debates anymore, and really watching my word. Giving me 15 permanent points for ONE POST wasn't right at the first place. But I've sucked it up and tried to be a better user. After a long time of a safe policy of posting, after getting banned twice (one ban was an admitted fail, the other one was an unadmitted one), I realized that I'm unfairly and severely restrained. With my current situation (21 infraction points), even a single use of profanity is almost LETHAL for me. Just because I was dishonourably stabbed in back by an alliance of two woman one year ago. But as I said, I'm not asking for a full amnesty. Out of those 15 permanent infraction points, take out at least 5, not neccessarily out of them. I've atoned. I deserve a second chance.
