Yeah, I figure anyone who cares enough about the site will read this thread occasionally and get the idea of what is and isn't acceptable. For the same reason I don't even reply to PMs or Contact Us emails etc. about "why did my FS thread get locked?" or "why can't I post a FS thread" or other things that I've answered blatantly in a pinned thread somewhere very obvious. I guess maybe I should make a Site FAQ forum or link page thing with links to all those threads so they are all in one place. But I kind of prefer people having to look around a little, it may make it a little harder but it means they care enough to bother to get to know the site/community a little.
