Thoughts on Permanently muting players instead of Permanently banning them?

Hello, this is my first post where I want to talk about the ban system and how it functions and potential features that could be implemented. To start off, my main account has been banned for almost 3 years now and all that time I've been messaging support (not constantly, just every few months) to ask if I can get another chance or to take something else away so I can get this account back. I've put countless hours in this game and have precious memories in this account which is why I wasn't and i'm still not prepared to give it up even after 3 years. It will seem pointless to most if not all of you why i'm doing these things but i'm making this post in the hope that even one person understands me. I'll post the chat logs that had gotten me banned at the time and you're free to have your own opinions of what I said but I hope you can understand the whole picture and hopefully believe me that I wasn't the one initiating toxicity in the game, however I wholeheartedly agree that I should have gotten punished and I should of taken the 2/3 week ban as the absolute last straw and there is nothing I can say to that extent other than wanting to slap my old teenage self in the face. Here are the chat logs I mentioned before: Game 1 In-Game s9gJ7CCFQ3: well gg s9gJ7CCFQ3: i go in like you said lulu s9gJ7CCFQ3: look what happened s9gJ7CCFQ3: go afk then s9gJ7CCFQ3: i report s9gJ7CCFQ3: our jungler is afk s9gJ7CCFQ3: yes s9gJ7CCFQ3: so are u s9gJ7CCFQ3: you keep talk s9gJ7CCFQ3: when i go in s9gJ7CCFQ3: you asked me to go kog s9gJ7CCFQ3: "pls go kog or lucian" s9gJ7CCFQ3: thats what i said s9gJ7CCFQ3: you said* s9gJ7CCFQ3: no you didnt s9gJ7CCFQ3: good call s9gJ7CCFQ3: not following you again lulu s9gJ7CCFQ3: yeah sure s9gJ7CCFQ3: gg s9gJ7CCFQ3: why go towards me lulu s9gJ7CCFQ3: everytime you ping to go in s9gJ7CCFQ3: we die s9gJ7CCFQ3: lmao everyone blame me s9gJ7CCFQ3: kled is 0-5 s9gJ7CCFQ3: flaming??

s9gJ7CCFQ3: lmao s9gJ7CCFQ3: you say i am worse because i tell the truth s9gJ7CCFQ3: and it hurts I won't be picking apart the logs line by line like other posts probably have done and any negative opinion you think about me after this is probably correct but I hope you can emphasise with me as a 16/17 year old highschool student who had been getting bullied, who was failing exams and was constantly moving around. Things got to a boiling point and at that point in my life, league was an escape like it is for many of you. But I approached the game by only playing ranked and getting all my self validation and confidence from that since I could not retrieve it anywhere else. I took every game too seriously and would never go offline on a loss until I physically started punching my leg to stop. I'm in a much better place now and work out my anxieties in another medium and have matured. Now for the main topic of this post (so I can avoid rambling in this big wall of text). I want to think about the ban system itself but to begin with I want to explain that I was a player that was only toxic and never trolled or inted games intentionally, Some times I might have crossed the line and done it but in the thousands of games I've played I could count the amount of times I inted on one hand (and not the whole game) because I took it so seriously and wanted to win every single one. By now you're probably thinking "Hurry up and get to the point" well here it is; I think permanently muting players or at the very least having another ban after the 2 week ban/(month?) would go along way to helping players reform. If I had gotten a year ban instead of a 2 week one I would have gotten more time to reflect on what I truly did wrong in the game whereas in reality, there was a 4 month maximum time span where I had gotten the first ban and then the permanent ban. Being the teenager I was at the time, I (now reluctantly) brushed off the first ban I had gotten and just assumed I would never be permanently banned. I just wish I had time to really think about what I did wrong in those games instead of being in denial that it wasn't my fault and carrying on being a complete douche towards my team mates. I don't want to ramble on any longer so I just want to say I hope, I need a feature like this to be implemented. I would happily accept a permanent mute on my account that has been floating around the forums for a while or atleast another appeal after the 3 years I have spent in limbo where I can talk about having another chance to retrieve my account back. I'm prepared to wait however more years I need to, and I believe I've done the time, I just want to see my account again, the friends I lost and all the accumulated memories I have gained through playing on it for years. I thank you truly for reading this far and happy 10 year anniversary, Riot.
