I'm not going to argue your points, or correct your attitude. I'm a moderator and you're not.
However, I do think that after you typed up your cathartic diatribe, you could have looked it over for proofreading. Then you could have realized, "I'm getting worked up over a one-day temporary ban that expired 16 months ago." You're not required to click the "reply" button. You can just close the browser window and feel better about yourself knowing you could have said something, but you chose not to.
Again, I'm not scolding you. You may find this advice helpful in other areas of your life though.

In regards to rule violation 1: I spotted numerous punctuation errors in your entire post. I am a published author. Would you like me to instruct you on the proper use of the comma? I'll give you a hint. You've used an unecessary one after the word accomplishment. Try using the period, also known as the full stop. I could go on and on.
In regards to rule violation 2: You spent a whole lot of time insulting me. Asking me to read the rules, possibly listing the ones I violated, and writing that there was nothing good about the post would have sufficed. Oh, and there's an example of the serial comma. It's one of the three primary uses for that punctuation mark.
In regards to rule violation 3: do two wrongs make a right? If so, you're in the clear. If not I'd say you made a personal violation and it made you look the same way, if only to me.
In regards to rule violation 4: I'm not sure where I said they hated my class or me. Assumptions are dangerous. I'll clear you on this one as I understand where you were coming from with the post.
In regards to rule violation 6: I can't argue with you there.
My question to all of this is as follows. Are you going to give yourself some infraction points?

You managed to break half of our rules with one post. That's pretty impressive, congratulations!
As a special thank you for your accomplishment, have a complimentary 24 hour vacation. This will help you look for your missing authenticator and enable you to shit-post on the official forums like you want to, instead of here, where we don't want you to.
So I don't have to explain the rules to you in a PM later,
Rule 1 violation: Always capitalize the first person pronoun "I."
Rule 2 violation: You used 18 sentences to say what I could have said with 1 sentence.
Rule 3 violation: Ghostcrawler might not be a poster on the EJ forums, but insulting him as a person doesn't make you look smart, and allowing an immature post like yours doesn't make us look smart for having you as a guest.
Rule 4 violation: Blizzard doesn't hate you, and they don't hate your class.
Rule 6 violation: Aside from the whining, all you said here was, "Look a blue post." Contribute or don't post.
This infraction is worth 2 point(s) and may result in restricted access until it expires. Serious infractions will never expire.
to which many of the posters here are included in.
I find it disheartening he managed to dance around every single well-thought out enhancement concern posted. Don't get me started on elemental's reliance on going into melee to drop magma totem. I don't even play elemental, but i recall people listing the cooldown on earthquakes AE and asking what they were supposed to do in that downtime period, run in to melee and drop magma? it's a bad mechanic, he missed the point while "attempting" to answer the question.
Points missed are as follows: reliance on feral spirits, spell hit for enhancement, SOE for enhancement in pvp, static shock changes, shield changes, defensive cooldowns, malestrom weapon getting the static shock treatment, and the list goes on!
Does anyone else find it funny that holy power is suspiciously similar to maelstrom weapon 2.0? It generates from attacks, only takes three stacks instead of 5, comes stock with a nifty UI, and has less RNG as it generates from specific cooldown attacks. I also found Long Arm of the Law rather sad because its sort of what some have been asking for; separating spirit walk from feral spirits. Granted its not exact, but its along the same lines. We have a plethora of issues, many which another class may share one or two. I recall postings from GC saying we dont like that model, we're going to change it, but there is nothing addressed with the same issue for enhancement. I.E. rogue reliance on cooldowns...I can't recall the rest as of right now. Anyone care to post on that thread with a definitive enhancement post asking for specific issues, some of which have already posted, to be addressed? I'd do it, but i don't have my authenticator just now. I just feel like he really danced around many of the important topics!
There are three combo point classes as of now, enhancement being the only one relying primarily on rng and without its own UI. Granted, I don't care about the UI because i utilize power auras classic and shock and awe, but it feels like a slap in the face. This is a giant burden for movement and pvp.
