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.

Around freezing here. Yesterday it was snowing making me not notice a speed bump resulting in a broken sump, which may or may not be weldable (I find out tomorrow, whether I have no car until it's welded or if I have to wait at least a week for parts)

In summary

We can switch. You come here and I go to Australia

It's a bit nippy in San Francisco, somewhere in the high 40's (degrees F), down from 61 this afternoon. In S.F., if you're not wearing your jacket, have it with you!

Global warming is happening in all the wrong places. I'm tempted to run outside with all of my aerosol cans.

Hi Birdy

Yes, you are correct, there is between 1" to 2" of settle snow on the ground. However, I am staying nice and warm inside and not venturing to go outside.

I bet you are having great weather, I'm envious

Ski London?

It's 47 F in S.F., expecting 65 later today.

We were once told that the U.S. would be "going metric" in measures of weight, distance, and temperature. I remember thinking that it will be very hard for me to adapt, as I had been using our old system through my entire life. I was 8 years old at the time (51 yrs ago).

It is expected that 5.1 million new televisons will be purchased today, for the 100 million+ who are expected to watch the Super Bowl (even though the S.F. 49ers will not be playing). Football is a rough sport, but no so much as soccer, which is so dangerous that sometimes even the players are injured!

Hi Blackhorse 70V

You said:

In the UK we were told the same thing, the government even passed laws forcing all manufacturers and sellers of goods to show all items in both metric and imperial weights and measures, with the idea that imperial measures would be gradually fade out according to a proposed timetable.

However, the British public did not like this and stubbornly stuck to buying their goods, wherever possible, in imperial measures. The authorities struck back by prosecuting some market stall holders for selling their fruit and vegetables in imperial measures. But this tactic generated so much bad publicity for the authorities, and with anti-European politicians jumping on the bandwagon, that the legislation forcing the use metric measures was amended to make it use voluntary for small shops and market stall holders.

Supermarkets and above, however, still have to show both metric and imperial weights.

The upshot of all this nonsense is that you have youngsters that don't know what an "inch" or an "ounce" is, because they have been taught in the metric system, and people of our age group doing a mental conversions back to pounds, pints, feet and inches, e.g. 30cm = 12" (the size of an LP), 1 meter = 39" or 3' 3", 1 litre = 2.2 pints and 1 Kilo = 2.2lbs.

As for Soccer being more dangerous than American Football is highly unlikely, your guys have to wear body armour for protection because your football (which is more like our rugby) is a contact sport while soccer/football is non-contact.
