You need to learn when to follow the rules.  In no way does your
mass-filing of bugs address a problem that wasn't considered by the
motivation behind the rule.

Furthermore, since you've mass-filed without prior gathering of
consensus before, it seems clear that you object to the restriction on
principle.  The proper channel for reforming this policy is to agitate
for reform, for instance by posting a proposal for its repeal to the
debian-policy list.  (In the event that debian-policy isn't strictly the
correct forum, debian-project is another possibility.)

Accept responsibility for your actions.  You apparently thought people
either should or would overlook your transgression as a justifiable
measure in furtherance of your goal.

They haven't.  Own up to your misconduct and failure to gauge the effect
of your actions on the community.
