people have to make a half-judgement based on what they can't see and making a proper account of the facts is very difficult if not impossible. The only people who had to make a judgement are members of the SuperUser moderation team.

Based on the information provided, you are at fault. Suspension is justified here for you to cool off in a period of time, before engaging in community again.
