There are certain players who don't read the rules of the game they are playing, so if the preset doesn't display legal moves they do anything regardless the rules. Apparently they don't read either the comment field in the current game page, so they continue to do illegal moves without paying attention to remarks. I don't speak of occasional illegal moves (it happens to anyone) but systematic ones. Yes, the non-automated presets and the use of GC interface can be confusing for new-comers, but if you don't understand something you ask questions or you do something else. Even if they don't understand english this is not an excuse not to read the rules. So I will stop to begin new games with concerned players and delete ongoing games where they don't follow the rules, unless they start to play with the rules. I won't contact them directly by e-mail because - sorry to be paranoiac - I don't know these people and I don't want to be spammed or anything else. I don't have much hope the concerned people will read this comment, but... if you don't understand english, use a translation tool. если вы не понимаете английский язык, используйте инструмент перевода.

And for the others GC players, what do you generally do in this case?
