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.

Default Credit Cards

I have a company that excepts credit card payments online.
I am not sure if you know this but Credit Card payments are and can be out standing for a total Of 3 months, even though the payment out of your card was immeadiate.
you could pay on the net for a product today and still be able to cancel out of that payment within 3 months.
Thats with all major credit cards companies, regardless of the purchase,
Now if you try to cancell out with a genuine company that you did a purchase with and it was a good purchase you could if you were being dishonest be sitting in a prison with a charge of fraud against you,
so dont do that,
but as for being scammed the credit card company can reinburse you with all monies as long as you supply them with all the particulars and I mean every thing, as this will go to the fraud squad of the credit card people.

hope this is hope full to people that have been scammed.
regards to you all

We are a legit business that caters to people unfamiliar with the method and tools to use when it comes to legal downloading. We do have links to limewire and other p2p services on our website but we are not selling their software. We simply recommend them because we believe that their program is the best one for our members to use. We specifically state on our website that we do not endorse downloading or copying any illegal material. We also state that we bill you for your convince a one-time charge for a twenty-four month membership and you will never be re-billed.

Your complaint with the FBI probably will not go far since our service is 100% legal and they know that. We are even joining the Better Business Bureau in the very near future. We have a toll-free number and offer 24/7 support with your account. If you have problems with your membership, feel free to contact us and let us know and we will be more than happy to assist you.
Your site is a scam! And your so-called support (Call us at 1-877-452-8211) rings & then disconnects is the online support & it's always a fatal error when you try it. I tried to cancel after signing up only minutes for $4.99 when your website redirected me to a shareware site (limewire). Then I found out you stoled $119.76 out of my bank account. If you were a legit site then why don't you have a way for someone to cancel? And don't tell me I could of email you because there's no reply to anything. So if anyone is out there with the proper sites to file complaints then please publish them for scam sites like these!

Default Credit Card payments

I got a email asking if i sell p2p
I better tell you that we dont have any thing to do with downloads.
as I said our company excepts credit card payments and I do know they are refundable up to 3 months after purchase.
but just to inform you Jackatwo or the company I work for does not sell programs,
we are a internet based help desk for computers only, we repair and remove viruses and such and do not have any thing to do with P2P programs
