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 Underage Nudity Being Shared On The Gnutella Network - Porn and Laws

Hi,

While downloading normal porn I've seen some files that claim to be of underage models.

Since so many ppl on limewire go for this underage crap, it got me thinking. Is it illegal to have files of models under the age of 18?

I read some article about limewire and it sounded like the FBI was going after the people who made the underage movies, not just people who happened to have it on their computer.

Can anyone clarify this for me plz?

If you end up with Underage material on your computer you better errase it a.s.a.p. rather than binning it.
Spybot S&D has a errase function.
Just don't leave it on your harddrive, and especially NOT in your shared folder.
Downloading by accident is one thing, but having available for upload.........

Thanks for the advice but my question was about the legality of it. Is it possible for someone to get punished for having KP on their computer?

As you mentioned in your post it's possible to accidentally download such material. So I think it'd be dumb to punish someone just for HAVING it. I'm all for the FBI cracking down on the people who MADE it, but I think it'd be a waste of money to lock someone up just for watching a movie or looking at some pics...

Well it all depends on the law of the country where you live.
But in general posessing KP is illegal, no matter where you live.
The people that produce it are the worst offenders, helping to spread it makes you involved as well, and "just" having it on your computer well ..... perhaps you might get away with it in some countries......
But it sure doesn't give a healthy impression now would it ?

Default Illegal Porn

Dear LW Users

As far as UK law is concerned, possession of KP is illegal, distribution or any other reason doesn't come into it, if you are found in possession of this stuff then you are guilty of an offense.

So if you have accidentally downloaded this stuff, not files with false names, you delete it , and as suggested by RaaF, use Spybot or some other utility that can wipe this stuff off your hard disk because normal windows deletion will not be enough.

It would also be a good idea to filter out all adult material in your search in order to avoid anything that is too unpleasant.

And on a mac you'd use Secure Empty trash as compared to the normal routine. Or to make doubly sure a utility like norton's wipe info which gives you the option of wiping a folder or empty space to clear any traces of data.

In the USA yes it is. There are numerous States that have specific laws that cover this. For example in New Mexico you can receive a Life Sentence for having such material on your hard drive.

You will need to check your Local, State, or National Laws.

But personaly I think any one who has this type of material is a real sicko, and should get what they have coming.

You mean something like a cold shower & bending over to pick up a bar of soap with a queue behind you?

In most countries it is, if not in all. In fact, last week there was an international band caught in different countries and all of them were jailed.

Ditto Australia, if you have kp on your computer you'll be charged with possession of kp; if anyone has uploaded it then you can add trafficking.
