Do you mean posting off-topic topics? I have seen pretty much all of those get locked, but I don't know of anyone getting banned for doing that, unless they're perhaps a repeat offender. Blizzard forum mods are pretty loose with the lock and redirect commands, but in my experience they're pretty lenient with actually banning people.
Personally I see nothing special in this thread other than it is quite pointless.
Only awkward thing is big amount of blue posts in quite a pointless thread. It isn't a secret that official EU forums is the wrong place for expressing feedback. Such blue post activity in pointless thread leaves me speechless.
Anada is an MVP-CS so you are wrong on that one you can check.
Granted he may have been a wanabe when he posted the thread.
Now read the Quote from Blizz I posted in my OP.
Could you show me where it says a single lounge post is allowed ?
Would that be in the unwritten forum rules ?
Sorry, the Ananda that posted the thread appears to be a regular user to me. Now that I looked I can see that there's an MVP Ananda posting in the thread though, so I'm assuming they're different characters on the same account or whatever.
Anyway, yeah, it's probably an unwritten rule. I don't specifically know Blizzard's forum rules very well, but the lounges have been around for a long time, and most aren't started by MVPs. Blizzard is very strict with them though.
