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.

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.

Unhappy Child Porn :(

What does the LW Admins do about Users who shares Child Porn? I got a chock today when i found a user, who got like 1036 illegal files with Child porn. Personally I think its the most disgusting harms of action to commit irl. If u dont do anything about the illegal activities on LW i need to know why, because i rather call the FBI or other autorities to stop that kind of dirty actions!

Hi Sumpchild. You are not alone in being utterly digusted by Child Porn, and without going into a tirade against the *******s who pedal and create the stuff, these are the facts concerning Limewire.

Limewire connects users overe the Gnutella p2p network. Users can offer for download by others anything they like. Music pictures videos and so on . Limewire has absolutely no control over what is offered, and if they had they would have gone the way of the original Napster and Grockster. The fact that Limewire operates differently from them is one reason that Limewire, fortunately still exists.

Users can do something about Child Porn and calling the FBI is not a bad idea. The ip numbers of the child porn peddlars are shown along with their shared files and these can be tracked. If you chose search above right and search for "kiddie porn" or "child porn" You will find more information on exactly who it is best to report such cases to.

As I have said, this is not something Limewire can do anything about, due to the way it operates, but in this forum, as far as many of us are concerned the more that we can do to put child Porn merchants behind bars, the better.

How do you what it is without downloading it? If you have downloaded it, then bad news for you: The FBI is going to arrest you within the next few days. Have you considered that the FBI is actively sharing archive material on Gnutella to capture lolipedo-fins?

Besides, the IP addresses shown for search results are far from being any evidence. The only way to find out who really shares something, is to download a file and *then* check the IP address. However, due to the vast amount of hijacked machines nowadays, it is not so unlikely that the uploading party is just a victim and not even aware of sharing or possessing these files. There have been exactly such cases even before Gnutella existed. Fairly normal people have lost their existence because of false-accusations concerning "child abuse". People are good in jumping to conclusions with any facts at hand.

Using Microsoft Windows whilst being connected to the internet is a modern version of Russian roulette. Unfortunately, most of the time the irresponsible computer are not the ones who are affected by hit. At least I've never heard of anyone losing his job or friends because his computer had been turned into a spam spewer.

I wouldn't suggest to anyone searching for "kiddie porn" or "child porn" anywhere. If you do, expect getting lynched by some random admin or bystander who is on a crusade because you are "obviously" a lolipedo-fin in search of material.

I could be wrong but I would actually assume the vast amount of real (not faked) child porn is produced in Russia or Asian countries, not in the US. That's none of the FBI's business anyway. Last but not least, keep in mind that even if all lolipedo-fins that appear in any available material have been executed/killed/jailed the material will still be available.

Default Accidental encounter with CP, whats going to happen??

Omg i am so scared, I accidently downloaded a child porn picture ON ACCIDENT! I was downloading a lot of legal adult stuff, but when i opened one of the files it said "you have been pranked by the FBI, have a nice day", so i figured that it must have been child porn. Then when i went back to see the text that comes up after you hold the mouse over the file for a few secs, I was shocked to see that it said all this sick CP stuff. The headline text was completely different! I am now extremely scared that the FBI is going to come knocking on my door or something. Has anybody ever accidently encountered the same problem as me???

Haven't seen your case before, but don't worry. There are many files that are not what the name suggests.

Just delete the file.

Dont. Just stay away from that stuff and let the police do
what they're already doing. If you saw it, they saw it sooner.

i wouldnt worry about a single image too much, from the news coverage of arrests, it seams that you have to develop a pretty serious 'interest' to attract FBI etc attention, ive never heard of anyone being arrested for accidently downloading one photo, or stumbling onto a website etc.
