What do you mean "what rule"? They were really never allowed from the start simply because they become a problem to keep up with. If you want me to be more specific,
9. GDT’s & CHAT THREADS – A GDT is a General Discussion Thread, or a thread without a clear-cut topic. We do not allow these in regular ST because of problems they create. We have very good merit for this, and this rule is not changing. High probability of ban on this rule.
I can also see the post that you made, you can make yourself out to be a martyr all day over 2 post in TTMA from a year or more ago all you want. It doesn't actually change that this is the place for the question to be answered. This also has nothing to do with me being respected about anything. Not a single infraction I've given had anything to do with me. As a matter of fact i let all the insults go, which had it been directed at someone else i would have probably infracted for.
Ive said it once before and Ill say it again. If all of you are so content to leave, stop coming back. If its so much greener on the other side, stay there. The whole joke of this is that you make claims about how much "cooler" it is over there yet you guys cant stop making accounts.
