Rules from the game of Monopoly do not apply on Wikipedia.

In the game of Monopoly, one of the cards that you can get by landing on 'Chance' is 'Get out of jail free'. This does exactly what it says on the tin: if you are sent to jail in the game, you can use the card to 'escape' immediately, without having to wait the three turns mandated by the rules.

There are no such 'let-out' clauses on Wikipedia. Just because:

does not mean that you are exempt from blocks, having your conduct discussed at WP:ANI, having a request for arbitration opened about you or being subject to other policies.

A prompt apology and recognition of any failures can mitigate an incident, especially if it was a genuine mistake, but experience and contributions will not grant you complete immunity.
