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 Grand jury votes to indict 17 cops in scandal

Seventeen city cops were indicted Friday by a Bronx grand jury in a massive ticket-fixing scandal that reached all the way to One Police Plaza.
The majority of the officers charged were union delegates, sources told the Daily News after the indictments were handed down.
More than 500 cops were linked to the scandal during a two-year investigation, and it was expected dozens of officers beyond those indicted could face some sort of departmental discipline.
The indicted cops face charges including perjury, bribery, obstruction, grand larceny, official misconduct and other charges, the sources said.

When a police officer removed ticket from a person who has violated the law as a personal favor, such as, family, friend, blackmailer, and money under the table.

I think I understand, for example if someone gets a ticket for a traffic violation then pays the police officer to "loose" the ticket.

Can you get tickets for other offences in the US?

Yes there are many offenses in America in which a person can get a ticket. its seem like the United States is not the land of the free to do something then not get a ticket for doing it.

I believe that most of the tickets mentioned in the article were actually parking citations. Some New Yorkers are wondering, "17 cops - not 17,000 cops?"

Drivers cited for moving violations are issued a ticket in the form of a "Notice To Appear" in court. It describes the violation (Vehicle Code section), and indicates the date by which the driver must appear or post bail (pay the fine). A driver who refuses to sign the promise to appear will be taken into custody, and thereby made to appear before a judge or magistrate. Anyone who does not contest the citation or is found guilty of the offense will be assigned points against their driver's license.

Each state uses a different point count system. In Calif. almost all moving violations are counted as one point. Two-point violations are usually those that result in arrest, such as 'driving under the influence'. Two points on one's driving record will result in increased insurance rates, usually for two years. Too many points over a one, two, or three year period will result in license suspension.

Drivers can get one point removed by attending a Traffic Violator School for 8 hours (6-1/2 hours of actual classroom instruction), for $30. An internet course is available; drivers take a course completion test at a specified location, where they are asked questions designed to make sure they actually watched all of the videos. Removing the point from one's record can prevent higher insurance rates.


I am quite disturbed by a recent development in Mass. A lawyer there paid a $20 filing fee to contest his speeding ticket before a clerk magistrate, who found him guilty. The lawyer then paid a $70 filing fee to take his case before a judge, who found him not guilty. The lawyer was then told that his filing fees are not refundable. He then took his case to the Mass. Supreme Court, which affirmed the lower court decision. He has decided against petitioning the US Supreme court.

I am astounded by the court's decision. Cops in Mass. can now write bogus citations, all the while knowing that even if they lose in court, the county will collect $20 or $90 from drivers who are later found innocent of the charges. Unfortunately, I agree with the lawyer in that the kangaroos on the US bench would probably provide no relief.


Seems to me that London is the most difficult place in the world to test for a license.

Well, you could be right because, as you no doubt know, London has been in existence since Celtic (Iron Age) times.

When the Victorians started to make London the centre of the UK the roads they built were made primarily for carriages pulled by horses, some of these roads are still in existence and are very narrow. As you can guess, rush hour in the centre of London can be a nightmare.

So, at London's centre, especially in and around the Bank of England, you have very narrow roads that get very congested while the further out you go the better the roads get.
