Well, we just don't do it that way anymore. The link provided goes to the old archived guidelines, the correct link is http://www.audiocircle.com/index.php?action=about
And the process of moving your thread to where it belongs is different. Typically we just move it to Industry Introductions if it looks like an innocent mistake for a first time poster. Yeah, you should've gone to the About/Help tab and read the posting guidelines, but we're trying to attract members, not drive them away. If your thread gets moved you can go and read the guidelines now, no biggie. However if your post is obviously a self serving promotion, or you're a repeat offender, the spirit of Pez's post holds. Nowadays you get sent to Quarantine where the admins decide if they follow the facilitator's recommendation and forward your ill conceived advertisement to the IGW.
Basically we're trying to attract those wonderful industry members that are active members of the community and give their advice so freely and generously, it's much appreciated. Not so much if it appears you have other motives.
