Your post prompted me to install fedilab and make an account. It's taking some getting used to(my first account got banned), but it seems awesome! Thanks for the post.
Well its not "culture" really its specific to the server and their rules.. If you were banned for engaging with a troll on mstdn.social then perhaps you should move to another server that isnt going to be so quick to ban for reasons you consider inappropriate.
For example if you had an account on QOTO we would never ban someone for engaging with a troll, and the same is true for many other servers.
