I suppose it comes down how you interpretate TOS.
Telling someone to look up the rules because they have not been playing long is IMO OK.
You are not telling them what to play - just to do a re-read of the rules.
If someone posts a position from a GIP and asks for advice then that is a clear no-no.
If we were very strict on this rule then very little will be posted.
A thread has been started about the QGA (not read it yet) but if opening
ideas start appearing then is that against TOS?
For all we know and the chances are in the positive, that there are a
couple of dozens QGA's just starting with different players.
We could be infact speaking about a dozen GIP's.
Regarding the game posted in Thread 157463
(I won't give the game ID as it is still in progress.)
An odd post that one because both players in the past have played in games where an e.p. featured.
Their most recent finished games (2012) are Game 8964748
and Game 9598145
