How NOT To Spam For Guild Recruits

Here's a very cool little blog post on how to advertise for guild members -- and how not to.
DON”T USE ALL CAPS.
Do not load up your message with **l337** symbols and other crap. Your potential recruits don’t have time or desire to decipher, so just use plain English.
Stay away from over-used terms so ubiquitous that they are now meaningless. Ever seen anyone advertising for unfriendly, immature and inactive members? Almost all guilds are friendly, mature and active, so don’t use up precious space talking about it.
Use goood speeling. You may not care about every day chat spelling and grammar, but nothing makes you look more like a stupid n00b than spamming the same error over and over. Check it first then store it in a macro or text file.
PST.

"Lineage" Players Hold PvP Brawl In Meatspace -- Hey, That Kid's Probably Not Gonna Respawn

"Lineage 2" player Alexander Ponamorenko was arrested and charged with beating to death fellow player Alexander Blyoskin, during a real-world brawl between online guilds in a Moscow cafe.

According to police, 22-year old Blyoskin tried to interfere in a fight between between 30 members of a "Lineage 2" guild and a single member of a rival guild. Some witnesses reported that the Ukrainian Ponamorenko stomped on Blyoskin's head.

Surprisingly, Blyoskin did not drop any items, and failed to respawn. Ponamorenko faces a 15-year jail sentence.

"Lineage 2" is NCsoft's fantasy MMORPG launched in 2003. NCsoft claims 14 million customers for the game.
