Your solution 114011835 for the problem 1517D significantly coincides with solutions alocytus/114006714, JJLeo/114011835. Such a coincidence is a clear rules violation. Note that unintentional leakage is also a violation. For example, do not use ideone.com with the default settings (public access to your code). If you have conclusive evidence that a coincidence has occurred due to the use of a common source published before the competition, write a comment to post about the round with all the details. More information can be found at http://codeforces.com/blog/entry/8790. Such violation of the rules may be the reason for blocking your account or other penalties. In case of repeated violations, your account may be blocked.

Here is my code 114011835 and here is another guy's code 114006714.

The code for 1517D is really simple, I didn't know that guy at all. This is a totally and extremely coincidence. I commented at the post "Rule about third-party code is changing" but no admin replied.

Can such misjudgment be handled correctly? Which admin should I contact to?

It's really unfair for misjudgment

Now put yourself in my place. All I see is suspiciously similar sources and your previous violations, where you have already ruined your reputation.

I will repeat once again — that we have no way of doing investigations and arranging jury trials. Obviously, you were previously involved in deception. Now there is a suspicious situation again. I do not exclude the possibility that this time it was a coincidence. That is why we do not severely penalize for the first violations — we do not publicly call the participants cheaters, we do not downgrade the rating. And only your words as an excuse. Believe me, these words will be written by any of the violators.

    However, this time is a completely coincidence. Most people use this way to accept 1517D, and the code of this way is highly consistent. Please think about the characteristic of this problem.

    Moreover, there is no intersection between I and the other guy absolutely at all. Maybe these two codes are the only things that we have some common characteristic.

    There is another evidence, I accepted 5 problems and that guy accepted 4 problems. If we are cheating, why we didn't accepted 5 problems together?

    Actually these evidences seems useless, but that's all the things I can tell because this is a totally coincidence.

    I've come to realize the mistake I made before and I am very guilty for it because I leak my code to other guy. But, is it because of the previous mistake, I have to accept all wrong trials in the future?

    I'm willing to pay for my previous mistakes but I can't accept an unfair verdict for it.

    Please take a little time to think it over to make a fair verdict. Thank you!

Considering that similar codes have happened before, I think the administrator’s approach is understandable, but please carefully consider the results of each competition.
