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 Illegal Porn

Hi there,

I was just doing a search for porn on the LimeWire and am deeply disturbed about the amount of Kiddie, Lolita and Child porn that comes up on the display in the search results. Is there anything that can be done about it?

The IP addresses of the offenders are available. Isn't there a way this can be chased up with variou police forces?

Knowing that this stuff is out there is ruining my otherwise fun search for adult entertainment.

Cheers,

Sean (unregistered)

You can report these IP's to the authorities, but first you have to make sure that the name is really what it states it is. Almost all of those sorts of files have very misinforming titles. But by makeing sure that they are what they say they are you also are violateing the law... However you can block certain key words in LW settings. To filter out the key words that depict illegal content run LW, and go to tools>options>filters>keywords and just add the words you want filtered out. Good luck.

Thanks for the info on filtering but that is not at all a viable option in the real world (hiding my eyes from the crime doesn't make the crime go away)...

Of course the people committing the abuse are more dangerous criminals than those that share files but tackling the sharing of files might help trace the problem to it's source?

I think what is perhaps more important is for the file-sharing community to come up with some kind of plan or stratey to tackle the problems of shared kiddie porn and child abuse. If there was a registry of IP addresses that could be verified to contain the porn, that might be a start.

Yes, people make mistakes with what they accidentally download, but if resources and time are put into stamping out the problem then that has to be a good thing...

cheers,

sean

You see, the problem with creating a regrestry of the IP's is that their IP's change every time they log on to the internet. But like Peerless said, a lot of files are misnamed. There's not much more you can do about them appart from reporting the sharer's of these files, and just simply ignoreing them all together. Good luck.

I noticed that a lot of the files were in fact not teens or children but i have found this one file called 9yo littlegirl displays her *bleep* i saw the first 4 seconds of it and i have deleted it from my pc because it seemed to really be just children anyway it would be appreciated if someone would find out if it is so as to get rid of it and have whoever has it arrested? I think it's sick and distatefull and it should be removed by the owners of the site. Thank You. (May i add illegal?)

Well actually i would like to point out that the government in my country will be passing a law that will not only force servers and providers to make sure it doesnt get in or they will also be found responsible and will be imported for this. And i dont't need a girl friend i have a boyfriend(i'm a girl) and he's expensive enough thanks.

Default question

hello everybody,

could you please let me know if it's illegal to share private porn pics (pics I've taken with my girlfriend)? I've been sharing my porn pics through Limewire for a while now under the name edited...no private info..read the rulez (plus requested photoshoots for various people I meet through Limewire, for free of course) but after I read this thread I started getting anxious. Could you please let me know...

Just to let you know I'm completely against kiddie porn, my g/f is 25 years old and I only do it because of the hype it gives me and my online mates.

thanks

Whatever dude. I guess as long as you both are of age it's legal. You should probably find out the legalities of shareing your files before you do it, shoulden't you?
