And that's where you are wrong.
PEEL is a private website. It's owners (mArc and Slimmy) have decided they don't want pointless threads on their forum, because, and this is the real kicker, it cost them money to run. Yep, that's right, people pay real money to keep PEEL runing. So if they (or their appointed helpers, called moderators) tell you not to create pointless or redundant threads, you have two options here: do as told or get the hell out.
It's as simple as that.
