"Lol, KKND is my friend. Fuck you guys for thinking that Im derailing. He knows this is all in harmless banter and jest. Goodluck with the recruitment bro."
This makes no difference.
He didn't make a thread that said: Hey, if you're my friend you should come spam this for me. He posted for a specific purpose, your posts absolutely derailed the thread. What is being discussed is no longer what the opening post was about, thus, thread derailed. It's not a gray area or a matter of intent.
