Although said thread doesn't serve any purpose other than to let others know about a joke mentioned in an MPGH Private Skype Group, it was still posted in the General section and it's okay as such, especially in comparison to other way more redundant General threads that aren't deleted. "Let's make this into a trend.", all the users who posted in the thread in question simply followed up the chain and started to post the same thing as in the original post. That's acceptable, once again, considering it's the General section we're talking about. Your post, however, was completely pointless as you yourself have already admitted and that was why you were directly infracted for it. Furthermore, like I referred in the private message I sent you, you should know much better than this by now. You're an already somewhat known user among the MPGH community and you also joined it in 2011... If anything, you should be setting an example for new users as an old user and not otherwise.
PS: You should really give this a read.
