Acknowledged (in a casual conversation with a friend)

My friend jokingly asked me "Don't share porn on Facebook, otherwise I'll send a message to Mark Zuckerberg and request him to ban you from Facebook" (He knows I don't, he was just being naughty.)
I said: Acknowledged.

Is my reply natural in this conversation?

    It isn't what you'd usually say to a friend but it's possible if you're jokingly trying to sound extra-formal, or are being very serious.

    If he was just joking around with you, I assume you weren't being very serious either. So if you meant it jokingly, it's fine.

    A very natural reply, one that most people wold consider natural, is "Sure, go ahead" or "I'd better stop then", both said in the same spirit as your friend's statement.

    Yes, you're right, I was not being serious, and I was jokingly trying to sound formal.

    Are you saying that both these replies are humorous and meant to be joke as my friend's statement is?

    Unless you really want your friend to write to Zuckerberg and get your Facebook account deleted, the first reply would be meant humorously, wouldn't it?

    Similarly, since you've said you don't circulate porn on Facebook, the second reply would be meant humorously too.
