Default Good advice for first time forum visitors

Not specific to this forum, but fora in general. Feel free to add to the list

1) Figure out who the moderators are.
1a) Don't piss them off.

I think that all falls under 1a) so
1aI) Don't post spam.
1aIA) Presume all of 10metreh's posts are spam.
1aII) No stupid remarks such as "I have just completed the factorization of MM127 with SNFS but I'm not telling you what the factors are! Har har har."

Was that a real rude remark, or just a joke?

If the former, this is spam...

Perhaps this can be generalized as

1aIA) Do not presume the posts of a person who posts a lot is spam, unless 50% of the posts are useless or of a spam-ish quality.

Do you mean I should be banned for spamming the forum? Or should I be banned for having 1+1=2 on my avatar?

What do you think would be an appropriate response to someone that persistently posts zero-content posts?

Not sure whose numbering system to follow, but ignoring one numbering system above and in doing so possibly following my own advice, or then again perhaps shamefully flouting that advice:

2) Work out who the trolls are.
2a) Don't feed them.

A very large reduction in the moderator's reticence to render such posts as one with the dews of yesterday.

Please don't. The moderators have enough crap of yours to read without getting it via email too.

That subtle enough for you?
