I screenshot this now deleted post. As anyone could've seen then, and you can see now, I blockquoted, and linked to, that Reddit comment. Doubtless I never intended to "plagiarize".
I admit my citation doesn't follow the 3 major citation styles, but I don't think Biology SE requires them? I can't recall the exact wording, but when I messaged our moderators, a moderator replied the Reddit comment was "weakly attributed".
Then I replied that even if "weakly attributed", I oughtn't be suspended for:
I was eager to rectify the issue by citing the comment however the moderator desired.
the issue could be effortlessly rectified not only by me, but any moderator.
this is the first time that a moderator has accused me of plagiarism here. Other Stack Exchanges freely allow Reddit comments linked to, and blockquoted, as I did.
I was never given a chance to explain. I was suspended for 30 days forthwith after Prof. Krause deleted my post.
But I didn't receive a reply, and I was suspended for the 30 days.
