Sven, you have a problem with not having the last word in a dispute.
If someone hurts you (or even it may _look_ for you this way while it
has not been meant to be offensive), you cannot stop and reconsider your
actions. You have to kick your opponent again and again, and you insist
on leaving the battle as a winner. At some point either you or your
opponents (driven by your aggresive kind) began with stupid polemics,
and on this point the constructive discussion is over. Eye for an eye is
not a good way to find acceptable solutions.

I am not sure that you do realize that. Because you did not anything
wrong in your POV. And because eye-for-an-eye strategy may look okay in
your eyes, and pushing the tone of the discussion into the dirt is
acceptable risk (collateral damage). I am not sure that you won't be able
to learn to act more cooperatively, trying to find compromises. But you
have been warned and you shall get another chance, therefore I do not
support this expulsion process (yet).
