We have a forum entitled "Advertising Sales and Affiliate Programs" where people are meant to discuss the pros and cons of selling ad space, how to go about doing so, review various affiliate programs and agencies, etc.

However, many people mistake this as a forum to post that they are selling advertising, despite a separate "Buy and Sell Ad Space" forum. I constantly have to move threads from one forum to the other.

The forum description is listed below the forum title, but no one reads the small print anyways. Does anyone have any suggestions for renaming the forum to make it more clear?

OR ... do you think it's just that people or lazy or think they will get more thread views in the "Ad Sales" forum?

A sticky post could help a little, but the fact is that the most of these people are just spammers, so the only solution is to delete their posts.
