I beg you to do me a favor and return my account to the previous status. I really suffer when I post like this. For how many days I should post like this?
Isn't there any chance for me to return to the previous status?

I have edited your post and moved it.
Moderators make decisions together. It is inappropriate to address your post to one moderator, and incorrect to assume that one moderator acted alone or even that that one moderator changed the status of your account.
Here's the deal:
When you ask question after question after question after question about the same topic, and keep getting the same answers, you are wasting your time and ours. It's rare that we say "stop asking questions about the same topic" but in your case, we did. And you ignored that and asked yet another.
Your moderated status is not a "ban" - it means that a moderator is going to look at your post first and then decide whether or not you have followed the request and are asking about new topics. Any further questions about direct and indirect speech will be deleted from the moderation area. Questions on new topics are welcome.
But hear this -- do not direct future posts to any specific moderator on the issue of your account. We are a team and we don't like it when you single one of us out assuming any sort of personal issue. You may ask the moderation team instead.
