Quzah, exploiting the system is one thing, but what you did was, imho,
wrong.  I believe that there should be some protection against abuses in
a system.  What you did was find a loophole and you abused it.  I see
no valid reason why a game should allow someone to kill someone else
hundreds of times, killing them back to level-1.  You exploiting the
fact that someone repops sitting down and with low hps... 

May I ask with your esteemed knowledge how come you didn't report this
loophole to the imms... the imms cannot know everything, that's why
players are meant to report things.

If I were in charge, I would change the repop room to being anti-magic
and definitely safe... I don't know if I'd delete your char, that would
depend on other things, but I would sure as hell would either prevent ever
re-occuring or secondly ensure that you got caught in the exploit
