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. 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 who shall we blame for child porn!

I was reading a thread on a different forum, about a woman complaining about child porn.
· (I was just recently disgusted when I found out what **keyword edited...do NOT post such search parameters** stands for well I still don't know but its got something to do with child porn....
and believe it or not but people are using limewire to share child porn its sick and its twisted and there has to b something the creators of limewire or whoever from limewire can do)

Is she disgusted that she couldn’t find out what pthc stands for?
I don’t know either, (could someone let me know please)

· And believe it or not but people are using limewire to share child porn!

Is there a lot of child porn? I have seen some references for it, (I have never seen any, nor do I wish to.) or are there a few films made along time ago that has circulated about? Because a only a few years ago it was illegal for any pornographic films or images. And now there are millions!

And what do you think people use p2p for, the majority of us only use it for illegal purposes, I mean LEGAL purposes.

Life is short,
I don’t earn much,
The cost of living is high,
And I want everything free!
I am a father, and a Grandfather, and anyone in the child porn industry should be Castrated with 2 bricks bashed together.

Should we the users of this site, police our own site for files such as child porn? Let the Governments do it, the admins, who shall we blame?

The good news is that the FBI does seem pretty aggressive with this kind of stuff. There was something in the news pretty recently about one of these kiddie-porn rings getting broken up.

Default Whom shall we blame for child porn!

A good question. Hugh Heffner and Playboy magazine for starters. He brought what was was then considered porn into the mainstream and made it commercially viable. The porn industry is now a multibillion dollar industry and they are always expanding the envelope of what can be published and shown.

How long before paedophiles and their child lovers demand the right of adoption, I wonder? Ahhh love...

as far as blame, the first ppl to blame are the ppl who are sharing the files...

the second ppl just might be the law, as they I'm sure are some of the sharers of such files (sting operations), and I'm also quite sure those files get spread all over because of that...

as far as real enforcement, well many users of networks make a point of logging the IP addys of ppl sharing quantities of the stuff and reporting the offenders...

I've got to say, I find the current 'trend' of super stiff penalties for mere digital images to be disturbing....WHY???? you scream, because many many times said penalties are far harsher than the person who actually abused the child gets..and that makes me think real hard before I report anyone...like think are they sharing enough of said illegal files to justify the amount of trouble they just might get into? I mean really, who did the most harm? a person who downed some images/videos, or a person who is actually doing the nasty deed (the answer should be rather obvious....)?

Actually, start with PartII and read your way up.

Ask yourself why you're NOT hearing more about this. Pete

And, why was this broadcast killed before it could air?

Pornografi has been around since there are Cameraes hell there are even Paintings of Erotic nature its not differnt with children pornografi even the old Greeks abused young girls and boys to think any P2P Program has something to do with it is simply hilariously stupid. Ofcourse it makes it easier to spread and back 2000 years ago not every movie clip was transfered over the entire world in a matter of seconds but in the end there is nearly always a down side to everything i mean consider Cars how many millions of people get killed by them every year hell every day thou i dont hear you mourning about it i guees you still drive in one everyday.
Ofcourse child Pornografi is a bad thing but thinking P2P Networks are the Problem is pretty stupid.

Frankly, I don't get upset about child porn unless real children are used. As long as it is just a creation from someone's mind, similar to cartoon except perhaps a little more real looking, then so what? In fact having simulated child porn available, may satisfy the craving someone feels and thereby eliminate the real child porn.

I realize most people are emotional and not logical; however, I would willingly permit 1,000 simulations if that would prevent 1 child from being used.

Short of gently giving them a shot that will let them go to sleep forever, there is not much you can do to prevent people from acting on their cravings. I don't believe they can control their cravings. However, if their cravings can be satisfied with simulations and, if that in turn, will reduce the actual harm to children, I don't believe people's objections are logical.

I personally don't wish to watch crude porn or much violence in videos so, when I find it, I just delete. However, if others like it, that is find with me as long as they don't expose me to it.
