Thank you for your reply - I sincerely can’t recall prior warning, especially not that I would receive a lengthy global ban, so it must have been a while back. However, I have an atrocious memory and trust that perhaps there was a brief discussion once in the past, and again apologise for the most recent incident.
I must say, though, I do think more adequate warnings would be appropriate for future offenders. It is fair to enact punishment for tking - ignorantia juris non excusat, after all. But, it seems a disproportionate punishment, give the nature of some of the other offenses people are banned, and later forgiven, for.
Anyway, thank you for your time in reviewing the case. It’ s been fun, but this heavy handed ruling has completely ruined the game for me, so it’s time to delete and move on to pastures anew.
