Someone seeking outside advice for an ongoing game

There is someone seeking outside advice for an ongoing game in PlayDip. Can't tell which game by the Reddit post, but maybe you can track it down:

Game 188126 DiplomacyShmiplomacy playing Germany
It’s a friends game however, so I doubt any rules regarding outside advice are applicable.

Voilà! In view, a humble vaudevillian veteran cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of Fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is a vestige of the vox populi, now vacant, vanished.

Why is that cheating? It certainly isn't 'rulebook cheating'.

Sorry to resurrect this dormant thread, but just to clarify, or course the rulebook does not forbit this. However in an online world where people cannot see other players, long ago people raised a concern of playing against 'teams', particularly where the team might be a loly ranked / beginner player and a strong player. In the current scoring system, people would suffer more from this because of the rating disparity.

So the site rules say that this is something you should not do.
