Then why not just fucking delete the thread in the first place?
Probably too busy enjoying pic related to notice the thread at first.
It's Nipplemod's petty revenge. He's still salty about the Valkyrie Drive incident so he takes his revenge on /a/ by letting an off-topic thread max out before banning en masse. Bet you anything the mod in that Rebbit content discussion thread was him.

I know I'm expecting the impossible by saying this, but I think that each and every single big board on this site should have at least one alert & active mod or janitor so that something like this doesn't happen again.
