That's right, in this scenario you have been banned. And, being that you are a respected member of this community, you are dumbfounded. However, you obey the terms of your punishment and do not post for the traditional 5 days. At the exact time of your scheduled ban-removal, you await impatiently for your privileges to be restored, not that you wanted to enjoy them at that very moment but you just want the satisfaction of knowing you could if you wanted to. But your privileges have not been restored! You wait an extra couple of days even, thinking maybe there was an error, and still you are banned!
You know that there is a thread on the site called "Request Ban-removal Here". You post there, politely asking for your ban to be removed, or for an explanation as to it's extension. And you wait, a full month, with no word from anyone (let's say Jakiao since he seems to take care of those requests). In the rules, Jakiao has outright forbidden PMing him with the request or using any other means to do it. Anyway, you can't PM while you're banned so that's out.
What do you do?
Sorry but I was deadly bored last night and was looking through that very thread and saw a bit of that going on. I thought it would make a good topic really.
