I really don't have much an issue with you being back, it's just weird that the mods would do that, not sticking to their rules.
I'm not sure what rules they were supposed to follow
To be permabanned you have to have 15 infractions (I have 12), or have the maximum amount of infractions in a certain category (I didn't).
But they also may have felt that 5 days wasn't enough of a warning before a permaban. (do keep in mind my longest ban before my perma was only 5 days).
I'm just glad and thankful the mods were kind and reversed my ban, and I'm happy to be back
