I'm like 10 days late. But uh "further perpetuated" is what you're looking for. Not "further perpetrated"

And for the fun of it and my inane pickiness
Perpetrated: carry out or commit (a harmful, illegal, or immoral action).
Perpetuated: make (something, typically an undesirable situation or an unfounded belief) continue indefinitely.

Granted the two definitely sound similar. And in hindsight IDEs are perpetrators of perpetuating bad practices.

That's my ted talk thanks for listening.

Thanks. As a non-native speaker I'm always confused between the two.
