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.

Well PP26

I stop talking to people who are just rude for the sake of being rude, the only time I will ever speak to such people is if it is a requirement of my job. However, as I have recently retired I no longer talk to people I don't want to.

I know when i am not wanted on a forum. I came here to make a deference, If what i did was wrong before should have been told in a PM, not out in the open for people to read, its just like making a fool of me. that is the reason why i am not coming back to a forum that only want me to know about software. People did enjoy my news stories.
Is there any truth in what a person will believe in

It seems to me that a mod sent you a PM after you first began posting here.

Everyone else replying to you has tried to encourage you to share your thoughts. I don't see how that makes a fool of you.

"that is the reason why i am not coming back to a forum that only want me to know about software". Among the many responses to your posts, I saw software mentioned only once.

I have to agree with Blackhorse, no one expects you to be an expert on software, hardware or anything else. Whereas most of us share our computer related experiences we also share our life experiences as well, plus we also talk about world-wide news items.

Now I will say this, when others, such as myself, bring up a news story we also make a comment on it. When you bring up a news story you just do a "copy & paste" of a news article without any comment. And, I believe, this is what the mods are objecting to, not your news articles but your lack of comments on them.

That said, I still believe you are more than welcome to still contribute to the forum but it is just that you have to put a little more thought into what you are doing and why, rather than just copying and pasting news articles into the forum.

I hope you will think about my comments above and come back to the forum reinvigorated.

UK Bob

Both of you are right, yet i also said that i like to comment on a copy & paste news story after a person made the first comment on it. this is how a discussion will get started. I remember a time when using my browser that i made my own story without links on another forum because i didnt know how, members there will say to me links, links..i think to myself links this is my own news story from what i read. That forum never taught me the right way to make a thread. Right now on another forum i can make a thread and the member will often leave a comment and we will have a discussion about it.

Sleepless is just really nice

Just for the record I did PM you long before it came out in public. I did hint at you to put a little more thought into your threads here.

You didn't even reply to the PM, where by if having replied, this could have easily been dealt with through PM. Instead you waited a few days and continued down the exact same path.

And no, simply copy/pasted news stories with a link are not welcomed here without any input from the original poster.

The reason for this is that if someone keeps doing it, then someone else might join in, and then someone else and so on and so on, until the lounge here is nothing but a copy/paste news site. If that was what we wanted for this forum then staff here could easily spend 10 minutes a day copy/pasting various random news stories from all around the net.

Is that your intention? A random news site that just happens to also have a file sharing forum?

If you want to portrait me as the bad guy here then fine with me. If you don't feel welcome, then fine, leave. If you choose to keep posting then please keep in mind that your posting methods need to change to including some input of your own in EVERY thread you make. If you are able to do this then you are quite welcomed to continue posting in this forum.

I could easily have sent this through PM, but the last time I got no indication that you even read it, so why bother. Might as well make it public for all the other would be copy/pasters.
