Appeal to remove my ban on chat.

I got banned from game chat for calling out a user while playing a corresponding game and then taking more than 19-20 hours to make each move once he realized he has lost. While that was annoying, I realise it was wrong of me to do so. In my defence, I never used any swear words and was civil.

So I have a question.
Is my ban forever from the inbuilt chat option?If so, then can you remove it please? I assure you it won't happen again.

The reason I want to appeal to remove my ban is because while playing casual unrated matches with my friends, I want to discuss the game simultaneously (for practise) with them in the chat window. Rather than PMing them online, it helps in keeping them at the same place.
