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.

Dear Forum Members

Although this story has not yet ended, its great to see that a British law firm that went after supposedly P2P users, in order to frighten them out of their money, may end up having to pay the legal costs of their victims that dared to fight back.

I hope the firm is sued for millions. Just a gateway waiting for easy money taking advantage of the legal system & attempting to cloud the minds of the so-called defendants with their supposed 'legal' threatening letters to 'pay' them money. They may have well as run a solicit child prostitution racket, as far as they'd care looking at their 'cares' & objectives to purely obtain 'money' without consideration of society as a whole. A quick buck. Oh, caught out, wanna go for a bit of a run uh? Midnight flit? I wonder how many of their staff possibly really are into child pornography. Probably deserves closer examination. What's this got to do with the topic? The way their (the company in question) minds work! After all, their approach has been one of a 'spam' approach taking advantage of innocent people just in the same way it happens to people who have 'spam' email sent to them saying they won the UK Lottery or must do this or that to get $ or not to lose $. Being an official legal company this company is considered seriously for what they say. So people are tricked into thinking they are at risk. Pay or be at risk as threatened by the legal company in question in their letters. Harrassment (for money!)

This company, ACS:Law, was running a protection racket with the express reason of making as much money as possible by frightening people.

However, when their bluff was called, and organisations like "Which" got involved, they backed down. But the judge said "not so fast, I want to see the case you have against these people (and what kind of racket are you running)".

Yes, I too hope they get fined £millions but the greatest thing would be if they have their license to practice law taken away.

I hope the people that were scared, coerced, and/or terrorized into paying the £500, get their money back several times fold. Maybe they(the powers that be), will think twice about their tactics, but I doubt it.

Guys

Here is the latest info about the racket ACS:Law was running and the fact that the firm has now been wound-up, meaning that those people who were frightened out of their money will be unable to get any money back.

Andrew Crossley, who ran ACS:Law, should be severely punished for being a shyster and a money hungry crook.

Default ACS: Law (Shysters Incorporated)

Dear Forum Members

The shyster law company ACS: Law has been fined only £1,000.00 by one of the UK's regulatory authorities, the Information Commissioner's Office. The reason for this low fine was because the company has now been wound up and the owner, Andrew Crossley, has provided, in a sworn statement, the current state of his finances.

Personally, I believe that this predator should be relieved of all his worldly possessions because he was more than willing to frighten weak and vulnerable PC users out of £500.00 each, whether they were guilty of his accusations or not.
