Except, I never said that.

So, by “putting your foot down” and continuing to escalate the issue after learning about the judge’s ruling, you don’t feel as though you were insisting on an outcome? If, in a game situation, after learning your opponent was going to get a warning, you insisted that they got a game loss, you’d certainly be guilty of a USC-minor. How is this different? The situation was handled, and you continued to escalate it, which makes you also wrong, albeit in a different fashion. Also, you should definitely review the judge Code of Conduct regarding diplomacy. Airing grievances publicly and flaming a player isn’t exactly the most diplomatic approach, especially when you’re using your judge credentials to add credence to your claim. It’s certainly ethically questionable.
