Here is the first page when I logged in:
Friend Requests Blocked for 7 DaysTo prevent you from contacting people against their wishes, your friend requests and your ability to send messages to strangers have been blocked for 7 days.Friend requests are more likely to be accepted when you send them to people you already know, such as classmates, friends, family and coworkers.If you use Facebook to communicate with strangers, they have the option to report that they don't know you or to mark the communication as spam. If this happens repeatedly, you could be viewed as violating Facebook's Statement of Rights and Responsibilities.
Cancel Pending Requests?If more of your friend requests are later marked as spam or reported for being sent to strangers, this block could be extended. To prevent this, you can cancel your pending friend requests.
Also cancel unanswered requests?
Of course, I still uncheck remove my unanswered friend requests check box (it is all in the name of research)
Third page talks about the next steps:
Next StepsAfter this 7-day block has been lifted, please only send friend requests to people you believe will accept your requests.
Of course, I understand so I check the box. (Moreover, there is no way to move ahead without it)
And you have access to facebook again.
