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.

Default unauthorized download

i've been encountering what seems like a problem lately. sometimes in a search (ex. melvins) it will come up in 1st place exactly like i typed it in, but w/ alot of #'s, no bitrate and sometimes spelled w/ underlines (ex. m_e_l_v_i_n_s_). today searching "melvins" it came up as typed w/ 23 #'s, 134.4 kb and no bitrate but it downloaded BY ITSELF, apparently when i downloaded a different song. it did not appear in the downloads section and when completed did not appear in library shared or saved. what is going on here? is this a virus issue? i have anti-virus and anti- spyware and scanning has shown nothing. any help would be appreciated, thanx.

These 134.4 kb files are a real pain. They are always at the top of the list and like you say sometimes have dashes between the words. If you put the cursor on the same line the "Browse Host" option becomes unavailable. Search for a music file and you get probably a notified fifty copies available, seach for the same thing two minutes later and they are all gone, plus if you search for a non-existent title you still get the top line showing lots of copies of the that non-existent title with the exact spelling you typed. If you click on the 134.4 line and then click "Block Host" it does come up with a number ID but that is no help really because the next search that brings up 134.4 has a different number ID. It wants someone who knows about hacking to find out who is behind these 134.4 files and identify him/her. I find Limewire of immense benefit, its such a pity that some anonymous idiot(s) should try and spoil it.

yeah that's it. I've seen search results at the top with u_n_d_e_r_s_c_r_e_s before and from my experience they have always been apple ipod ads so I never download them.

I just assumed it was Limewires way of making money but now after reading your post I see theres much more to it.

But I don't know how anyone could force a download like that, even if it was an executable file it would still require a double click of your mouse right?

My knowledge on computers and internet is quite limited but I would guess the culprit is viewing incoming searches then renaming his virus.exe to what he sees and in return his virus is added to your search results?

I see what you mean about the culprit altering his virus to the name you search for but how does he do it so fast: he must have written some program that checks every search. I looked for a song and the hit list came back with the top line being the song, listed as (43) 'title' 134.4 mp3. T1. Click on Block Host and it shows 69.9.188.218. Do the same search one minute later and get the same result for 134.4 kb and Block Host showing 60.24.60.135. Do the same search one minute later deliberately spelling one word wrong and it comes back with (26) my misspelled title 134.4 mp3 T1 and Block Host shows 88.124.128.80. Do the same again and spell two words wrong and it comes back again with (37) 134.4. mp3 T1, Block Host showing 69.174.80.176. So not only can this guy(?) alter his result title to fit. he alters his host address every time as well. Bearing in mind the number of searches worldwide on LW at any one time this is one clever program/virus? I am not computer literate enough to begin to know how he does it. I do appeal to him to stop - it may be clever but, quoting Carl Sagan, being a genius is no guarantee against being dead wrong.

i only HOPE its as easy as an apple ipod ad. how might we find limewire's take on this? i would imagine that block host works for whomever you downloaded it from, but theres 20-50 more ip #s right behind it.
