Stop reading the page?
Yes, maybe, but I'd just like to wipe the slate clean just to spite them all. Then, maybe I can go back to editing without even having an account. That'll put them in their place for sure.

Now I just found out I've been banned on Wikipedia and they didn't even have the decency to tell me to my face! Now what do I do? I can't even make an appeal to be unbanned, or delete my account so I can start all over again! This isn't fair! Who are the dummies behind this spiteful treatment and why are they doing this to me?

How are they banning you?  By IP address?  If not, then what's to stop you from just creating a new account as John Smith and editing away?  If they are, what's to stop you from using a proxy service to spoof your IP?  It seems like nothing on the Internet is impenetrable if you know how to get around it.

Excuse my naivety; I've never considered editing a wiki page, so I have no idea how the process works.

They've blocked my ability to create a new account as well. I've got no choice but to hope someone on there takes pity on me and decides to un-ban me.

With all the editing work you do for greg's site and given he has time to fight ebay for weeks about a $30 item he didn't receive in a timely manner from someone who died of covid, can't he help you with this fight?
