What I mean by gray area: in these cases, when I was reading through them, I was thinking "This person is either naturally very passive-aggressive, or trying to rile up his team while skirting the letter of the rules." Now, you may argue that you weren't trying to do that on purpose - and maybe that's true! The people who reviewed your case apparently thought it was intentional.
In my personal opinion, everything you just said is completely irrelevant.
The only thing that matters is the law laid down by Riot. At present time, I believe that a violation of the established guidelines from Riot leads to a ban, which increases to a perma-ban. This is what matters and why I am attempting to seek guidance.
There is no such thing as a "grey area
", there are rules, and the rules must be followed.
I violated the rules and accept my ban 100%, I personally, believe (most of) the rules are incredibly draconian, but I'm just a guy...
Though I called a guy a jackhole in game 2. GG. I have no excuse for that kind of behavior.
