If someone wishes to appeal a ban or infraction, the mods as a whole will look / discuss and decide what to do with it, whether to keep it or not. (This takes a while, as we're from all over the place.)
- You appeal an infraction that did not lead to a ban: You can simply PM any mod. If there's any you trust, go with those. If you're unsure, PM a blue. You should get a confirmatory PM once the appeal thread has been posted by the mod, and then another PM once a decision has been reached. If you don't get the first PM, feel free to contact another mod and ask them to check if the appeal is up yet - we won't mind.
- You appeal an infraction that lead to a ban: You'll have a "Ban appeals" forum visible at the top of your forums listing. In this special forum, you can only see the threads you yourself made - so don't be surprised if it's empty (except for an announcement explaining the appeals process, I think). Post your appeal there, and Scrapbot will automatically create the moderator-side discussion thread for the appeal. Once a decision has been reached, it will also be posted in that thread.
Note: Reaching a decision may take some time, usually a day or two, as we want to wait for mods from various timezones and with various schedules to be able to vote. Once the decision has been reached, your infraction/ban will be lifted, if appropriate, and you'll be contacted as described above.
(But then again, some people are not going to believe this anyways. Sometimes I wonder why I bother.)

Its not hurting the system at all, its protecting the mods, and also preventing topics from going off course by people whining about getting in trouble.
Not to mention how ridiculous it is that someone might say they are "brutally punished" for posting against the rules.
How many threads has he replied to besides mine on suggestion. This lead to my infraction for flaming. I added that in my appeal. I hope since you can obviously see the mocking. That it would strengthen my appeal.
You can understand my frustration because insulting my wording and not me many get a loophole.

This was on page 474. It's now on pass five hundred. History of mocking and condensing posts. All reported. And even outright ignored at one point. Again it's off topic this thread relates me being infarcted for flaming.
No, asking about your knowledge on guns is not attacking you. No, debating against you is not flaming you. No, proving you wrong is not harassing you. You start a thread about gun control, get proven wrong many times, call everyone stupid, then get mad when you get in trouble for it.
Like you stated yourself, if you feel this way, you can just ignore as many people as you like. I have never ignored anyone, so I don't know if they have a limit on it.
This is humiliating, intimidating or abusive behaviour which is often difficult to detect leaving no evidence other than victim reports or complaints. This characteristically lowers a person’s self-esteem or causes them torment. This can take the form of verbal comments, engineered episodes of intimidation, aggressive actions or repeated gestures. Falling into this category is workplace harassment by individuals or groups mobbing.
Community-based Harassment — stalking by a group against an individual using repeated distractions that the individual is sensitized to. Media reports of large numbers of coordinated groups stalking individual stalking victims, including a press interview given by an active duty police lieutenant, have described this community-based harassment as gang stalking. 
Again. He somehow magically harassment to me in Gun Control a HISTORY of it. Then comes to SUGGESTIONS and repeats cycle. Yet even though told the posts mocking, insulting and frankly non constructive are tolerated. I'm simply saying that when doing this over and over. It's unfair anything us not done. Even if person claims its not what I say.

This is why the mods probably don't like this topic. You are doing exactly what they said not to do. I was merely responding to you about the topic you posted, which I saw on the front page. You are welcome to ignore me, or anyone else you think might be harassing, or stalking you.
This is exactly what would happen if specific infractions were allowed to be discussed -- we'd have more arguments leading to more infractions and so on.
If you want something to be evaluated by mods, post in the ban appeal forum if you're banned, and if not, PM any mod and they will create an appeal thread for you. If you have a specific complaint about a particular mod or moderation decision, feel free to PM me.
