The outcome would still have been the same regardless. Really not sure why you're disputing the said infraction since if I had encountered your thread first than Smoke, I'd have probably banned you for what you did instead of just infracting you for it considering ignorance doesn't constitute innocence. You should really give this a look. In my opinion, the infraction in question was pretty valid and should stand as such. By the way, Smoke simply got banned for achieving 6,000 posts, (it's an MPGH tradition).
