For which those spammers should be punished as they're the ones breaking the rules. "You should not go there because you haven't reached an acceptable state of conformity (by standards of the spammers) and certain individuals will be fucking jerks to you." is a sucky argument. If we'd go for say, advanced roleplays, we could say people don't act according to the rules and guidelines of that forum because they don't meet minimum requirements (spell check, quantity of text, etc.) We'd get that. However if someone posts an anime/twilight/highschool roleplay in advanced, despite the dislike of quite a few advanced members of the genre, the only thing they can do is not join those roleplays. As long as it abides the advanced rules and guidelines, it's legit. But spam has no rules, nor guidelines (other than stuff like don't troll free,) therefore you can't make new members abide anything except the forum wide ones. You do have the same option of ignoring them if you don't like them. Or, you know, not go into the topics they create. Like, you know, everyone else, in every other section. Personal preference is therefore a moot reason.2. When they're a real newbie and they act obnoxious and ditsy they cause an annoyance in Spam Members, which can occasionally lead to Spammers doing...bad things.
All sections are public sections and no matter how you word it, any feeling that spam is any different or should be treated as a private clubhouse is... Frankly, completely false. Also non-Fonz-cool. Shit don't fly.
