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.
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 something be done to prevent ShareAza hosts sharing 'Rubbish' files on Gnutella network?
As unhappy as I am to point this out, I think it needs to be said so hopefully something is eventually done about it.
The most likely hosts to share rubbish on the Gnutella (G1) network are ShareAza hosts. By rubbish files I am referring to files such as such as info, VOB, m3u & torrent files.
Investigating spam via Gnucleus even with a decent blacklist still shows files that are of no use to anybody who downloads such files.
The gnutella network needs good files to be shared (the more the better), but surely there is a method to prevent certain types of files to be shared on a network not suited to them. Easily done IMHO (filter files added to G1 shares), but question is whether the Shareaza devs are willing?
These are just users sharing their torrent download folders with scene releases and complete albums. Would you really prefer they didn't?
Just add .nfo .vob .m3u .m3u8 .torrent etc. to keyword filter.
I realise this but presumably ShareAza can separate shares per network? I haven't used the program in several years so am not aware. Torrent files are irrelevant to the Gnutella (G1) network. And are probably irrelevant to all networks except the torrent sharing world.
Over a year ago I had a disagreement with BigJx with the WireShare project about the word torrent being filtered (& some other words. My suggestion was a separate filter for torrents (not a difficult task & easily designed to remove replication of content.) But then, using WireShare's Lime basic torrent technology possibly equates to using Newtella, Toadnode or Xolox on the gnutella network; far out of date. Unlike the gnutella network, torrent technology has advanced every year.)
Has Shareaza updated G1 since Gnutella 1 servers for shareaza? To my knowledge, no. Please enlighten us if this is not the case.
Well I for one sure wouldn't mind these .nfo files, you see as trash. They contain info about ripping method i.e. I would very much prefer an .mp3 file converted using LAME from a .wav ripped using EAC rather that WMP.
Same way as an .m3u would list exact file names used on the CD to .mp3 release.
So there are two of you listed file types, that actually have a purpose.
Scene and torrents are two very different things. Scene rules specifically list how a release should look and should always be kept intact. You can share whatever your heart desires using torrents.
So asking that Shareaza blocks the listed file types from being shared on G1 is pretty much the same as saying scene is unwanted i.e. alienate every scene fanboy. Would make the scene happy I'm sure.
Or would you prefer there is no Shareaza at all on G1?
I read both your OP and reply several times and may have completely misunderstood. Or read things into what you wrote, that weren't the intention.
I totally agree such files can work well with Torrents. It can also work with the DC network 'if' the host's directory structure is set up properly. Otherwise it becomes a finding a needle in a haystack scenario. I recall seeing both good & bad (messy/totally unorganised) directory structures back in the days I used DC.
Such files are not necessarily appropriate for G1, G2 or some other networks. With these particular networks there is no structure to bind the files together.
Also, the files need to be named appropriately. Finding a random m3u, info, etc. files are meaningless. There needs to be a method of linking what files belong to them. From what I could see with the ShareAza shared files I found with Gnucleus the other day, this was not the case.
Also, VOB files have a tendency to have a generic name & numbering which is also meaningless as to what content they actually contain unless they have been custom named. Tag descriptions made within the program are artificially pseudo (unless ID3 or file-tagged such as images potentially can be but rarely are) and not transferable across the G1 network. They simply help to describe what the files are in search results. More often than not, they are usually not described in detail for the G1 network.
Thus, the topic mentioned files I was seeing with Gnucleus were mostly meaningless.
What I meant is that the naming scheme can actually make it easier to find the naming scheme of specific files. Also if the .nfo is share, odds are that the .mp3's are as well.
i.e. an .nfo is named 00_artist_name_-_album_name-year.nfo
then it would be 01_artist_name_-_song_name.mp3 etc.
