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.

Angry It Makes Me Sick!!!

I am disgusted by the sick individuals who put child porn on LimeWire and other P2P networks. I am a kid myself and to think that some freak is putting videos of them or other people having sex with kids my age, kids younger or kids older makes me REALLY sick.

Something needs to be done about these pedo weirdos.

I know, people like that are sick. But sadly, no matter how much it gets removed, there's always more on the network. If you see some, remove it from your results. I am p i s s e d that people do this. And if I saw these people in real life, you better believe something bad will be heading their way.

Youngsters of the Forum

As an old balding man, with two sons of my own, I can understand and sympathise with your feelings about these sick people.

However, I would advise you, and anyone else, to report these people to the proper authorities and (Garbagefan2) not to take the law into your own hands.

Vigilantes belong on TV and in films, not out on the streets.

I have to agree.

People who put something like this online should be followed and punished.
It also angers me how such things always come up.

People who watch and download this and *enjoy* it are sick aswell and need psychological help.

It is so sad that such things exist!

You said:

Just suppose you "follow and punish" the wrong person, how would you go about trying to make amends for the wrong you have done?

I have said this before in this forum and I will say it again, arrests, trials and punishment should only be done by the proper authorities, not by mobs or vigilantes.

Mobs and vigilantes cannot administer justice or put right mistakes that they invariably make. For example, here is an extract from a BBC Radio programme broadcast last year called "Any Questions" where a number of current topics are discussed:
Quote:
a couple of years ago the home of a paediatrician was attacked because the people attacking couldn't understand the distinction between a paediatrician and a paedophile. And this poor man was subjected to serious damage to his property, abuse to himself, possible threat to his physical safety because a mob - a small mob - but a mob thought they had a paedophile in their midst because somebody said well that guy's a paediatrician, he's a risk to children in the community.
How would you apologise to this man if you were part of this mob and would you contribute to replace the property of his that was destroyed?

BBC - Radio 4 - Transcripts

Vigilantes are criminals, period, and I never hesitate to arrest and have them charged for the
various crimes they commit whenever I come across them.

Well said and I totally agree that vigilantes are nothing but criminals and tend to be more dangerous than the people they profess to protect their communities from.
