How likely is this rule to be enforced? Has anyone ever been banned for making off topic or unnecessary posts or anything like that?

Sorta like this OP - there’s plenty of existing threads in forum rules & features to dredge up something close enough and learn/discuss but no, people only believe their shit is the most awesome and amazing shit in the world and no thread can be “close enough” for their brilliant thoughts. Ugh…
You are absolutely correct, I completely agree. I should have searched more deeply, but I did search! However, I might not be amazing with search terms. I tend give up after a few hours of searching but I have searched on topics for significantly longer.
I might err on a bit of the forgiving side, newbies do what newbies do. They say "Never attribute to malice what can be attributed to ignorance." Sounds like what you want is a forum introduction video with a questionnaire at the end for all new users signing up requiring 100% correct answers teaching folks proper etiquette and so on.
