actually to give a serious answer I don't think there's even been a ban on general threads
it's just that in the past few days retards have been making multiple general threads at once, so that posters are split between the two (or more) and so they're guaranteed to be much slower and hang around longer
and then on top of that we've had multiple Star bait threads in the last few days, so retards are either treating those as the generals or are afraid they'll get punished to make yet another Star thread
and now there's a mix of both inactive generals and bait threads and so no one knows which is "the" thread, and so more retards are making more, and everyone's keeping all of them alive, etc.
bottom line: stop making fucking shit OP posts for generals and people will be able to fucking find them you fucking idiots, fuck
I actually don't mind there being multiple threads but if people actually want a general then p much everyone in the OP is going about it the complete wrong way
