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 frostwire bad bad bad

Frostwire is trogans and spyware. I have not downloaded a single file that did not contain a trogan! A really good program ruined by people intent on destroying the gnutella concept. Maybe if a good open source programmer could install a prescanner to catch the virus' & trogans. I DO NOT RECOMMEND ANYONE USING FROSTWIRE WITHOUT AN ANTI-VIRUS PROGRAM.

I would not recommend to anyone to ever simply connect with an ISP without viable anti-virus protection.

Remember... FrostWire, LimeWire, BearShare v5.x.x, Phex... any of the Gnutella Network clients...
'They' are not guilty of anything...
They are simply the Gnutella Network client the user has chosen.

Any and all material available for downloading is the responsibility of the individual users who elect to share files.

In other words... The spyware, the trojans, the porn, the misnamed files... WE are doing that to one another... WE, the users.

Do not blame the client developers.

btw... Have you ever used any filesharing program/client where you allowed your Downloads Folder to be automatically shared ?
Have you ever allowed Partial Filesharing ?
If the answer is yes to the above questions (or to 10 more questions I could ask), then you are also guilty of sharing files of an unknown quality.

Think about it...

...er, no....
You did NOT say that... You blamed the developers.

You also did not reply to the simple questions:

Have you ever used any filesharing program/client where you allowed your Downloads Folder to be automatically shared ?
Have you ever allowed Partial Filesharing ?


If the answer is yes to the above questions (or to 10 more questions I could ask), then you are also guilty of sharing files of an unknown quality.

And, NOT ONLY YOU !!!
As long as the so-called developers continue to include and ENFORCE the above two functions as default standards we are going to see garbage files being shared... Knowingly by some and UNKNOWINGLY by the great unwashed masses.

With all respect, your problem may be a simple matter of not understanding the 'current' requirements re: crafty search techniques... And, knowing, by sight, what are the definite bad/impossible file sizes.

None of the Gnutella Network client developers are working AGAINST us...
Most are making no effort to educate and 'protect' their users.

And, one more time, in case it is missed.....

I would not recommend to anyone to ever simply connect with an ISP without viable anti-virus protection.

Your turn...

So we fight over symantics "he said/she said". I'm not blaming developers, just think they could have developed a screening method to prevent virus' and spyware from getting in. Most people who share files don't have a reason for passing some unwanted bug. There are people who DO want to hijack your personal info or to install PUP's. Maybe if you believe in conspiracy theories some companies don't want gnutella to ever achieve a working status as it would allow users to not have to rely on their servers and therefore no advertising revenue; ie popups .

'symantics' (sic) is a kind of variation of an ancient word from the era of Peter Nortondamos !

"Most people" have absolutely no idea whatsoever what they are sharing.
THIS is the fault of the developers who are pursuing 'pretty numbers' enhanced by default settings which include sharing ALL downloads and sharing incomplete/partial downloads at the cost of not encouraging the sharing of ONLY vetted and quality files with proper naming and tagging.

Yup.
They are called 'record companies' and their vigilante posse mercenaries.
You don't believe that the SONY rootkits fiasco is a thing of the past, do you ?
Just wait for the next acts !
