Honor penalties

So I've been playing league for about 6 years now and something I've noticed with Honor is that before the reward system came out, players would enjoy honoring enemies and/or allies and yet now it feels almost forced. When the Honor update came about in S7 or 6 cant remember, it was super easy to get to Honor lvl 5 however Riot updated it again and it suddenly became impossible to lvl up unless you muted your team and prayed your team liked you. Then another update came about round about near Honor Checkpoints update and i found the penalties for poor behavior became severely more punishable as it was the first time i got a week ban for poor behavior in 3 years. What i'm trying to find out is whether or not this strange progression is true or not? Could someone fill me in on this?
