You posted a bug report, but it had no content other than "til".  That's 
what many abusers of the system have done, so you were blocked.

I have read the first line of your bug report, and it says " I'm not 
sure if this is a bug with i3 or R ".  If you're not sure if it's a bug 
or not, then please post to R-devel.  That's a moderated list so if this 
is your first post, it may take a while to appear.

This probably seems unreasonable to you, but a lot of abuse is sent to 
the bug list, so we block it quite early.  I'll unblock you now, but 
please don't post there again unless your discussion on R-devel 
indicates this is a problem with R rather than i3.
