When you report a player and it's declined because 'not worth 1 month ban'. Why 1 month and not a few days then lol?
If you report a player for a true violation of the rules they should be banned accordingly.
§2.10 - How bans are issued
The first 3 bans issued are at Game Moderator discretion.
The 4th ban is 1 month.
The 5th ban is 3 months.
The 6th ban is permanent with no chance of undo. Any bans further than 12 months before the current ban are ignored under this rule. This is considered the cooling off period.
If you have at least two history bans of the same length in your ban history, Game Moderators may extend your ban to the next ban history length, regardless of how many bans you have had in the last year. For example, if you have already had two 1-month bans, your next ban can be extended to 3 months. If you have two 3-month bans, your ban can be extended to perm. Note that bans that are extended due to it being your 4th, 5th or 6th ban cannot be removed, they are strictly 1 month, 3 months and permanent.
The excuse 'not worth 1 month ban' would be irrelevant. Please note, when administrative staff are banning players they use the structure above not what the user tells them to ban the perpetrator for.

Sorry to hear about this; I've seen the report you're referring to, but of course cannot discuss it with you here. It'd be great if you could get in contact with us via feedback, so we can do a proper review of the report and give a response to you regarding it. You can do that here.
I'd submit a feedback. If the reported player broke the rules, a ban is deserved. And if that ban has to be 1 month because it's the fourth within a year, that same player is the only one to blame, he/she should have known better. GMs should not forgive offenders for long term bans, just the opposite, long bans are issued because the player kept breaking the rules over and over again.
