It's only fair I should be punished for abusing a bug but I do feel a permanent ban without any warning is a bit harsh :/
I recently got banned for item exploiting.
It had to do with the end_portal_frame you were able to take out of the /enchant shop.
I never intended to cause harm to the server and never placed any of the blocks down to create an end portal.
The main reason why I took them out was my curiosity and what would happen.
I was not aware this would result in a permanent ban. I really enjoy playing on this server and seeing this happening just makes me sad.
I hope you believe in second chances.
