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 Officials confirm 'credible but unconfirmed' 9/11 threat

U.S. officials said Thursday evening they have "specific, credible but unconfirmed" information about a threat against the United States coinciding with the 10th anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks. "We have received credible information very recently about a possible plot directed at the homeland that seems to be focused on New York and Washington, D.C.," a senior administration official told CNN Pentagon Correspondent Barbara Starr.
The official said the plot was believed to involve three individuals, including a U.S. citizen, who may have entered the United States. U.S. officials believed the threat was a vehicle laden with explosives, but "the intelligence picture is not completely formed," the official said. "Not enough is known about the potential operatives and their plotting."
Another source gave CNN conflicting information about possible details of the threat. http://www.cnn.com/2011/US/09/08/terrorism.threat/index.html

Makes sense for them to make a sensation out of anniversaries (as a reminder to the West.) I've heard of that possibility before. Whether it's true or not .. but definitely always a concern. I think the USA has enough to concern about with recent years of tornadoes, storms, economic issues, without needing any of that kind of rubbish.

I'm sure the extremists don't really want the USA government to change their mind & decide to put heaps of money into ridding of the extremist groups as they had previously (if mainly or only an excuse for the oil.)

Glad to see you back crymomma.

We can never be safe from those who wish to cause us harm. Our only recourse is to behave in ways that don't needlessly offend others.

The easiest duty I had in Vietnam was providing protection for our Seabees (a group of construction engineers from the US Navy; more than a thousand lost their lives in combat). At the time that I provided their security, they were paving the main highway, QL-1, between Xuan Loc and Ham Tan. The road served many Vietnamese, on their way to/from Saigon, including soldiers from the North. Thus, our enemy would not shoot at the Seabees, and the locals learned that americans were not all bad. We won more hearts and minds with asphalt than with ammo.

I hear some mention of building hospitals and schools in Iraq. Before our invasion, Iraq didn't need our financial aid nor construction - they have quite a bit of oil. Our efforts to assist them militarily will provide good reason for an entire generation or two of Iraqis to hate US. We've disrupted their lives, farms, industries, poisoned their land and water with depleted uranium... If people weren't making money off the war it would be a total disaster.

What every child is taught:
Ask before you borrow.
Say "please" and "thank you".
Put it back when you're through.
Clean up your mess.
NO HITTING!

Default US vs The World

Hi Guys

Something has always bothered me about the US and that is it always seems to need an enemy to focus on.

After the second world war it was the communist, even though communism was a doomed unsustainable system. OK, that was not known until the Berlin wall came down, that can be forgiven.

And what was the Vietnam war about, as far as I understand it the Vietnamese were fighting for their freedom against French colonialism, i.e. the same thing the US did to gain their independence from Britain.

But even now no one can give a credible answer why the US went after Iraq in Desert Storm 2, why all the lies to justify a war against a toothless tyrannical bully.

Let's leave that one, because it's now history, but now that the original villain is dead what is the US going to do.

What (make believe) evil villain is the US now going to go after?

Default Anniversary Terror Threat Being Taken Seriously By White House: John Brennan (VIDEO)

WASHINGTON (AP/The Huffington Post) — The Obama administration is taking serious the still unconfirmed intelligence tip of a possible al-Qaeda plot tied to the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, counterterrorism adviser John Brennan said Sunday.
The threat reported to authorities Wednesday night remains "specific and credible," Brennan said during interviews with "Fox News Sunday" and CBS' "Face the Nation."
"Again, it's not confirmed, but the president wants to make sure that we leave no stone unturned," he said. "And that's what the intelligence, law enforcement and homeland security communities are doing." So far nothing has happen today. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/09/11/911-anniversary-terror-threat_n_957453.html

Default Intelligence????

Hi Crymomma

Glad to see your back, but I got to ask this question:

Do you mean the same "Intelligence" that said Iraq had weapons of mass destruction and were sponsors of Al Qaeda?

The same "Intelligence" that gave millions of US dollars to a con man (and did nothing to reclaim any of it back)?

You know, I don't doubt that the CIA, NSA & FBI can do their jobs properly but I wonder how much of what they say is propaganda and how much is real.

The excess was Iraq. If our leaders launched that war because they were certain that Saddam Hussein possessed weapons of mass destruction, which has not been certain after all these years.

Saddam did not want to announce to Iran that he had no WMDs. He simply 'misunderestimated' how stupid the american people can be.

The only thing known for certain was that Iraq did not have WMDs, just as the inspectors had reported.

Crymomma

Blackhorse 70V is right, there never were any WMDs, it was all a work of fiction, as the UN Inspectors said.

In the UK, when both our countries were hell bent on war with Iraq, a decent politician and, at the time, cabinet minister asked the simple question: If Saddam has WMDs then where are the factories and infrastructure to make them?

The US had spy satellites over Iraq and all they could find was a tin shed, which the US told the UN was a factory producing WMDs. The US had eyes on the ground (i.e. spies) and they could not find anything credible.

In other words, Saddam had nothing but bluster and hot air, and nothing more.

Both US and UK Intelligence knew this but our main politicians (both Bush and Blair) decided to lie to us by saying Saddam was behind 9/11 and that he won't give up his WMDs. Blair said Saddam could attack British interests within 45 minutes, this was another work of fiction dressed up to look as if it came from the Intelligence community.

I understand that before Bush became president for the second time there was a plan in place to attack Iraq but they, Bush & Rumsfeld, could not sell it to the American people, that is until 9/11.

So Crymomma, before you repeat the Bush propaganda check first that it is true because the first casualty of any war is the truth.
