Why are you mad? YOU failed/got a D/didn't do well in a class and now you have to face the consequences of it. Oh, but you did better the second time? Of course you did! That's the point: You've seen the material once (even if you, for whatever reason, didn't pay much attention to it...), you really ought to do better the second time.
I'm sure lots of you will say that you had "good reasons" or "extenuating circumstances" for failing a class. There are plenty of people out there who had "good reasons" too and still managed decent grades. Just write an addendum, own the GPA you EARNED, and move on.
There is nothing unfair about the way LSAC calculates GPA.
Edit: OP this rant is not directed at you. Your LSAT (if you score in that range) will still get you into a lot of very good schools, likely with a lot of money. Good luck!
Thanks for that, TLS will be sure to file your opinion in the nobody gives a fuck drawer.
