Yes we realize there is often some confusion and that's one of the mods job is to move threads to appopriate boards. I know of no one who got scolded for posting on the wrong board. But you will get thrashed for posting the same question on multiple boards, and we rarly have a problem of that kind.
Yes you're right. From reflecting on different forums I have visited on the Internet it is the multiple post that causes anger and hijacking the thread.
