Well, I'm not trying to do any such thing. A significant number of threads do seem to be started by people who aren't familiar with the AdSense TOS, or are looking for guidance as to where the boundaries lie on certain issues. I think it's reasonable to respond to such posts with a reference to the TOS, a quotation from it, or an opinion based on experience. They can then use that advice to keep their site in compliance or bring it into compliance if it's not. That's not scaring them out of the program.
