Default Advice

I am looking for it. I am setting up a social group. PM me if you're interested in providing advice. Yes, it relates to the thread I made go away. I won't make any further threads. But, I do want advice. So, social group it is.

“But it is said: Do not meddle in
the affairs of wizards, for they are
subtle and quick to anger. The
choice is yours: to go or wait.'

'And it is also said,' answered Frodo:
'Go not to the Elves for counsel for
they will answer both no and yes.'

‘Is it indeed?’ laughed Gildor. ‘Elves
seldom give unguarded advice, for
advice is a dangerous gift, even
from the wise to the wise, and all
courses may run ill.'

what if we are too wrapped up in our own problems right now to give advice, but we are nosy and might want to get involved later?

or maybe we'll get involved now. we are not sure. we also are not sure you like our advice anyway.

so what i'm saying, we want in, but we don't want to commit to anything here.
