The problem is that common sense varies according to the individual (you've only to look at The Darwin Awards for proof of that). One man's "perfectly obvious" is another man's "oh, i didn't think of that." Which is why having a definitive set of rules is a pain sometimes, but really very necessary. And as a sport or pastime matures and technology develops, the rules should probably be revisited fairly regularly.
For a newcomer things can be a bit confusing and puzzling, and some of the things that established players consider to be plainly obvious just aren't for the some of the rest of the competitors or potential competitors.
