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.

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.

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.

Angry kiddie porn

Hi there!

Yesterday I checked my Download-Folder of Limewire and had to see there are a dozen kiddie-porn files.

I deleted them of course, but I don't want to have to do that all day. Does anyone of you know a really working filter for that kind of files?

If there is no solution, I think I have to leave the GnuTella Network. It seems like you're in jail with one leg because some *******s spread those files over the network

Hope anyone can help

Some people say kidporn is no problem, and trading is legal.
I think kidporn is a problem, feel free to follow my argumentation at http://www.bearshare.net/forum/showt...=&threadid=441

I'm sure if you searched you could probably find kiddie porn on the internet. Maybe you should stop using it altogether? And really, what's in a name? If you are not being forced to download it than who cares? It's just the price to be paid for using gnutella.

Well. You are right. Nobody needs to download it. But the problem is, that those files are not only have lolita, etc. keywords in their files, but also "common" adult-related keywords so if you are searching for "usual" adult-files you also get those files unwanted.

@Moak
It seems we have the same thoughts about that stuff. But how can anyone really think trading kiddie-porn can be legal?

Here at germany you can get to jail even if you have pix, etc. UNWANTED by the gnutella-network. Of course noone can get rid of those files (a helpless hope), but the problem is that even "normal" guys like me will have to defend themselves because of unwanted files on my harddisk. (even if deleted it's easy to recover)

And I just wait until a tv-magazine will hear about gnutella and those files. Just a matter of time until they tell at tv all gnutella users are pedo. Just like they always try to tell the viewers that 1st. person shooter will take us all to killers.

just a question to be on the right track: you downloaded something, but the content of your downloads was not what you expected it to be, right?

@Tomato: I don't think that police/BKA is throwing you into jail, because of downloading some kidporn stuff by accident or misfortune.

@Unregistered: Propably kidporn is only a tiny problem and we can forget talking about it. Actually your servant is used to help trading kidporn, even if you don't search or download yourself. Follow to URL above to see why.

@Axe
Right. But not only once, but very often. And I do not want that kind of files on my HD

@Moak
I have a different view about this. It is not even allowed to save or send material to the police to help them getting kiddieporn traders.

Hi Tomato, I completly agree with that (I live in germany, refering to BKA page it's illegal to download or hunt for kidporn in my country).
Actually I do not download a lot kidporn by accident... sometimes it happens... I ask myself if kiporn is "only" a very small (but very ugly) side aspect of gnutella.

Funny to hear someone "bitch" about porn when I'll bet that same person downloads mp3's, which is also againest the law cause of copywrites !! The internet is full of "LAMERS", my answer to you is go hide under a rock and read your bible more, leave the "downloads" to us "sinners" !!


LONG LIVE THE GNUTELLA NETWORK

Lightbulb kiddieporn vs mp3s?

How can you compare kiddie porn in which innocent children are being physically and psychologically abused to sharing mp3s which is not even proven to affect sales? Ugh.
