If your problem is not resolved by a search of the forums, please take the next step and post in the appropriate forum. There are many members who will be glad to help.

Members need to supply these details >>> System details - help us to help you (click on blue link)


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.

Don't grab newly released or unreleased stuff would be the first thing.

If you hardly use P2P as you state and you feel you are taking unnecessary risk, then by all means call it quits or get better protection e.g. a proper VPN service to route you traffic through.

I don't personally use a VPN or any other anonymizing service, but am quite careful what, where, when and how I use P2P. If I was located anywhere that the copyright trolls had any pull, then I would most likely get myself a dedicated server from a reputable company and route everything securely through there.

Probably one of these VPN services: https://torrentfreak.com/anonymous-v...w-2015-150228/
You need to read their research results to find which are the more trusty ones should worse come to worse (ie: worst case scenario). There's 3 pages of VPN listed services.

You should really have started a new thread topic because your topic does not match this thread's topic. No doubt you do not use AT&T services so it's unlikely.

Ask the WS dev., he apparently knows 'everything' about the gnutella network. By the looks of the way the WireShare project is heading, you will without a doubt find a lot more spam, virus & fake results in your search results. They are presently considering built-in non-configurable auto-censorship which has very little to do with spam but instead it will limit what you can find & download. They will go one step better than the authorities would have hoped/pressured for the LW devs to do.

That's very interesting about your possible copy right spy! Have you ever gotten a letter?

Lord\Sleepless,
Are private trackers safe?

Lord\Sleepless,
Are private trackers safe?
With private trackers there are some things to consider. the two biggest factors are membership count and how easy they are to get into.

The safest trackers are the ones that stay under the radar for the most part. Less than 50.000 members (Maybe even 20.000). Always closed for signup (invite or application form/interview reviewed by staff before being accepted). Other things like SSL browsing or even better SSL tracker as well as site specific torrent hashes are probably the safest ones.

But in the end as long as you are using your home line to download and share it depends on what you download. If you are worried about staying safe, then definitely invest in the added layer of security a trusted VPN or seedbox provider gives you.

I am a member on some trackers that I would say are safe. But these are old, really small <5.000 members, secured in any possible way and form and hardly accept any new members ever if any at all.

I sense that you think that wireshare is not the best application for me given my interest in music from 1960 to 1980 ; would you advise pirate limewire is my best option ?
