Well it is kind of hard to not tell someone that they post in the wrong place. Today I got on the forums and most of the topics I saw was "Looking for a clan", "Join our clan", "Zombie Question", etc.... It has gotten to the point that I just report those things as spam, instead of telling them to post it in the right forum, as well as giving them them the link.
Thats basically what i do, unless they are a first time poster. Dex just parrots the mods and does so as if he uas any kind of authority. Theres a difference. I do understand your point though.
