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.

Can't LimeWire at least ask Google to block those sites that are misleadingly using LW's open source, or else ask those sites to clearly indicate where LW is freely available?

You may not be able to block those sites, but surely you can ask them to be clear in their use of LW's name and logo.
I filtered out that url.

I also have been drawn in by sharedmovies.com which I got off a sponsored link off a google search fortunatly I only paid the minimum subsciption but I was a bit confused that I had to download your software to start searching for movies. On a positive note they were recommending your software and I might not have found you without them.

I did not make a note of my password or username with them and they have not e-mailed confirmation so I don't think I will be visiting there members pages again!

Should I try and cancell the debit card transaction ?

Look forward reading any replies

If you think there is any possibility of cancelling the transaction, than yes... Immediately try to stop payment...
And, be certain to alert - IF possible - the card company as to the nature of the 'scamming' company trying to rip you off...

Look at the bottom of their web page, you'll see:
Copyright © 2004 - All rights reserved

This copyright notice without a copyright owner name is a sure sign that this is not a legitimate business!

Look at the "privacy policy" link: it is not signed!

Now look at "affiliates": a crap made by and for spammers stealing your money with multilevel (pyramidal) marketing schemes, or "get million dollars fast"!

You will not see anywhere any legitimate and registered business name, no address, no phone or fax number, not even an email to contact...

Now go to the bottom of the page: it's full of tiny invisible text, with links to various P2P programs. They are there just to feed some search engines with keywords...

Now go to the "Terms of service". The contract is not qualified by a provable entity (its signed between "you" and "we, filesharing center", i.e. the trademark used to name the website, but not to designate the owner.

There are so many other signs there that should indicate that this is a scam. Now you're educated. This site is stealing money, and if it distributes some software, it is certainly hacked to contain some stealthware (spamware, backdoors, spywares, keyloggers, credit card stealer...)

Don't trust them: if they used your credit card, reclaim your money to your bank immediately. I'm sure that no company will manifest to your bank to justify the payment, so such opposition will push your bank to start a legal action and track the abuser that has stolen money at your bank!

Bank robery is a crime!

Default Get the *******s!!!

I left a question re paying for Limewire and found out along with a lot of other people that I had been ripped off. I rang my bank who couldn't do anything about it. I then went to IBILLCS.COM and informed them of the situation. They refunded the money immediately. The rip off ***** are www.klitesite.com.
