Moderators

There are senior members on the forums who serve as Moderators. These volunteers keep the board organized and moving.
Moderators are authorized to: (in order of increasing severity)
Move posts to the correct forums. Many times, members post in the wrong forum. These off-topic posts may impede the normal operation of the forum.
Edit posts. Moderators will edit posts that are offensive or break any of the House Rules.
Delete posts. Posts that cannot be edited to comply with the House Rules will be deleted.
Restrict members. This is one of the last punishments before a member is banned. Restrictions may include placing all new posts in a moderation queue or temporarily banning the offender.
Ban members. The most severe punishment. Three or more moderators or administrators must agree to the ban for this action to occur. Banning is reserved for very severe offenses and members who, after many warnings, fail to comply with the House Rules. Banning is permanent. Bans cannot be removed by the moderators and probably won't be removed by the administration.


The Rules

1. Warez, copyright violation, or any other illegal activity may NOT be linked or expressed in any form. Topics discussing techniques for violating these laws and messages containing locations of web sites or other servers hosting illegal content will be silently removed. Multiple offenses will result in consequences. File names are not required to discuss your issues. If filenames are copyright then do not belong on these forums & will be edited out or post removed. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

2. Spamming and excessive advertising will not be tolerated. Commercial advertising is not allowed in any form, including using in signatures.

3. There will be no excessive use of profanity in any forum.

4. There will be no racial, ethnic, or gender based insults, or any other personal attacks.

5. Pictures may be attached to posts and signatures if they are not sexually explicit or offensive. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

6. Remember to post in the correct forum. Take your time to look at other threads and see where your post will go. If your post is placed in the wrong forum it will be moved by a moderator. There are specific Gnutella Client sections for LimeWire, Phex, FrostWire, BearShare, Gnucleus, Morpheus, and many more. Please choose the correct section for your problem.

7. If you see a post in the wrong forum or in violation of the House Rules, please contact a moderator via Private Message or the "Report this post to a moderator" link at the bottom of every post. Please do not respond directly to the member - a moderator will do what is required.

8. Any impersonation of a forum member in any mode of communication is strictly prohibited and will result in banning.

9. Multiple copies of the same post will not be tolerated. Post your question, comment, or complaint only once. There is no need to express yourself more than once. Duplicate posts will be deleted with little or no warning. Keep in mind a forum censor may temporarily automatically hold up your post, if you do not see your post, do not post again, it will be dealt with by a moderator within a reasonable time. Authors of multiple copies of same post may be dealt with by moderators within their discrete judgment at the time which may result in warning or infraction points, depending on severity as adjudged by the moderators online.

10. Posts should have descriptive topics. Vague titles such as "Help!", "Why?", and the like may not get enough attention to the contents.

11. Do not divulge anyone's personal information in the forum, not even your own. This includes e-mail addresses, IP addresses, age, house address, and any other distinguishing information. Don´t use eMail addresses in your nick. Reiterating, do not post your email address in posts. This is for your own protection.

12. Signatures may be used as long as they are not offensive or sexually explicit or used for commercial advertising. Commercial weblinks cannot be used under any circumstances and will result in an immediate ban.

13. Dual accounts are not allowed. Cannot explain this more simply. Attempts to set up dual accounts will most likely result in a banning of all forum accounts.

14. Video links may only be posted after you have a tally of two forum posts. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam.

15. Failure to show that you have read the forum rules may result in forum rules breach infraction points or warnings awarded against you which may later total up to an automatic temporary or permanent ban. Supplying system details is a prerequisite in most cases, particularly with connection or installation issues.

Violation of any of these rules will bring consequences, determined on a case-by-case basis.


Thank You! Thanks for taking the time to read these forum guidelines. We hope your visit is helpful and mutually beneficial to the entire community.

Default SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) and PIPA

SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act)

Why Should You Fear SOPA and PIPA? - Forbes

This article seems to explain it fairly well Why SOPA endangers America's Internet leadership

Security Now 328 | TWiT.TV

https://www.google.com/search?tbm=nw...earch=1&q=SOPA

Censorship sucks, and SOPA right along with it.

China's censorship is coming to the USA with the Government, RIAA, MPAA, etc. involved with them wanting to remove people's internet freedoms. Oh there's an election coming soon too. Take note !!!!!!!!!! Especially take note of those who are supporting these Bills in government.

Wikipedia closed for 24 hours in retaliation and protest about the SOPA Bill. Google and Yahoo are also in protest.
Whereas Ruport Murdoch is in support of SOPA. Don't buy anything Murdoch has commercial interests in. . (We're glad we exported Murdoch to the USA to get rid of him lol.)

I have updated the above post, *bump*

Do not think they will not try again ... SOPA stopped after unprecedented online protests .. the RIAA, MPAA, Murdoch, etc. are out for internet control. They pressure USA's international trading by blackmailing other countries around the world to change their laws in favor of MPAA and RIAA as a prerequisite for trading with the USA. They not only want to control the entire world's internet but also their own (USA), censoring and destroying websites (and individuals.) I can assure you, the MPAA, RIAA, etc. will not stop, they will continue with another Bill or adjusted Bill down the line. And it will not stop there I can assure you. Once they pass something like this in parliament, they will see they have an open door to censorship laws of their desires. And then there is Phone and email tapping ... oh ... and more in the years to come. They will find excuses for these changes, and use the excuses as a smokescreen.

Quote:
Mr. Reid said Friday he hoped Patrick Leahy, chairman of the Senate judiciary committee, who has been shepherding the bill through Congress, could help resolve differences in the legislation.

“I am optimistic that we can reach a compromise in the coming weeks,” he said.

Mr. Leahy slammed the Senate derailment of the anti-piracy legislation as a “knee-jerk reaction to a monumental problem,” but said he is committed to getting a bill signed into law this year.
Corporations are dangerous to the world. They want to monopolize everything. They want total control over 'everything' regardless the negative effects on the consumer or the environment. A Police State helps to give and maintain this control for corporations. So does multiple large payments to government persons or parties (and law enforcement departments or personnel) to gain this kind of monopoly they perpetually chase. The RIAA, MPAA, etc. are themselves corporations. It is one corrupt world out there.

Illegal activities with the authorities turning a blind eye: the organisations sponsored by the RIAA and MPAA, etc. to spam p2p file networks with viruses and whom steal ip addresses from around the world to carry out their activities. Identity Theft I believe it is called.
The spreading of dangerous viruses around the world's internet can also be referred to as Industrial Espionage. Over the years, many businesses around the world have been greatly affected by the viruses released by the spam organisations mentioned above. Businesses have lost revenue, had to close temporarily, had to lay off staff, had to rebuild their databases, etc. due to the economic and computer structural damage caused. Yet these spam organizations are free to roam lawlessly without anybody to reign them in.

Don't you think it is time to put a stop to this? Take care who you vote for in government elections. Double-check their credentials and what they stand for and what their policies and standings are on particular issues. If you are not sure, inquire at their offices. If they do not respond to individuals, then they will probably only respond to commercial groups who sponsor them greatly (ie: easily sold out!) Is that who you want representing you? Is that who you want running your country and setting up laws for you to abide by?

Hi LOTR

Well, this is something I have been saying for years and that is our freedom loving democracies are looking for ways to muzzle our freedoms and use whatever excuse they can find to spy on us.

I honestly believe that our governments envy China's control over their own people and will continue to cook up any reason they can to introduce such controls.

If the US manages to introduce SOPA and PIPA then how long afterwards will it take before the rest of our western governments introduce their own Chinese-like Internet restriction?

Finally, I guess that now is the time for governments to force through restrictive legislation because, unlike Australia, the rest of us are worried about the continuing rise in unemployment, restricted/fixed incomes, job insecurity, rising winter fuel bills and other day to day problems. Therefore, people can be can be forgiven for taking their eye off the "freedom ball" while being weighed down by life's problems.

As a side note, I find it totally incredulous that Rupert Murdoch should complain when SOPA has been stopped/delayed when his "News Corporation" organisation in the UK ran illegal phone and email hacking operations on an industrial scale. And not only that, he had the political establishment and Met Police force running so scared that they let him get away with it for good number of years.

Murdoch is certainly a believer in "no law for him" and laws to keep the rest of us in line.


UK Bob

Both California senators supported PIPA (Ms Boxer gets $ from Hollywood, but then, her opponents might also get Hollywood $ - so that whomever wins is already owned by MPAA). Anyway, I'll be looking for other candidates, who recognize that the Internet is the most important tool for Freedom since the printing press.

Freedom and facism often follow one another.

"We're glad we exported Murdoch to the USA to get rid of him lol." Yeah, just shows that sometimes you got to take the bad with the good.

Cool

[ sometimes you got to take the bad with the good.[/QUOTE]
I thing that 's a good idea to do so only because that will be a great security to each user and people will be more responsible for their acts and they will no longer do what they want where they want. because as my understanding: freedom doesn't mean to do whatever you want without being controlled that define better the concept of anarchy a think!
