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 quick and dirty perl peerguardian to phex IP block list converter

it's not polished at all and frankly I don't know if it's even importing the entirety of the massive peerguardian list, but I made it and figured maybe some others would use it too.
Don't blame me if anything bad happens, this program was written hastily for my own use. It WILL NOT warn you if you attempt to overwrite an existing file! The only potentially dangerous line is the one where you set the output file path. GET IT RIGHT!
For this reason i'm leaving it without a file path prompt, hoping that people smart enough to edit the line of code will be smart enough not to overwrite their files. This program is also not smart enough to keep your existing rules so you will have to redo them. For those adventurous enough to try it, just place the code into a file(.pl extension on windows), set the paths, and run it from DOS prompt(assuming Perl is installed). Linux users will need to put in the shebang line cuz i'm too lazy to. I tried to comment as best I could but the programming is still hackish and kinda hard to understand. Theres also a good chance I created a couple syntax errors while transferring it to the forum. Perhaps a good future Phex feature(haha that rhymes) would be to support importing peerguardian block lists? I would probably do it but I can't program C .
open (FROM,'C:/documents and settings/bob/desktop/list.p2p');#change this to the path of the exported peerguardian list
open (TO,'>C:/Documents and Settings/bob/phex/security.xml');#change this to the path of phex's security.xml (usually in documents and settings under the current user)
$totalnum++ while(<FROM>);#counts lines in file
seek(FROM,0,0);#resets read pointer
print TO <<HERE;#here document pastes default beginning of file
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>
<phex phex-version="">
$time=time();#so I can print status every few seconds
while(<FROM>)#goes line by line
	m/(.*):(.*)-(.*)\n/;#seperates PG listing into addresses and description
	@ary=map {uc(sprintf("%x",$_))} split(/\./,$2);#convert starting IP adress to hex(format Phex uses) and makes it uppercase
	foreach(@ary)#adds a 0 if neccesary to adress
		$_="0$_" if(length $_==1);
	$startad=join "",@ary;#completed starting adress
	@ary=map {uc(sprintf("%x",$_))} split(/\./,$3);#convert ending IP adress to hex(format Phex uses) and makes it uppercase
	foreach(@ary)#adds a 0 if neccesary to adress
		$_="0$_" if(length $_==1);
	$endad=join "",@ary;#completed ending adress
	$desc=~y/a-zA-Z0-9. -//cd;#gets rid of chars in the PG descriptions that Phex doesn't like
	push (@adresses,"        <ip-access-rule>
");#this huge line is what prints completed rule entries
	$counter++;#keeps track of how many lines are done
	if(time()>$time+1)#prints status
		print "$cent % done $counter records out of $totalnum\n";
	if(!($counter%4000))#flushes lines to disk every 4000(speed optimization)
		print TO join( "",@adresses);
print TO <<HERE;#prints default file ending
#the newline at the end of HERE was really important so I put a comment here to force you to leave the newline
EDIT::removed default rules lines

Great work thanks...

Phex currently compiles its security rules from
It merges ranges from the following lists:
Hijacked IP Blocks
IANA Reserved
Level 1 Blocklist
Spyware List

Not sure how much overlapping it has with peerguardian.

Here is the file that shoes the complete blocked ranges used:

BTW: You can remove the lower part of your script which adds "the default rules that came set on my phex".
They are only used to store the trigger count across Phex sessions. Phex will still add its default rules when you remove these lines. The only thing you loose is the trigger count, which is only used for display/user information purpose.
Also note that Phex handles type 2 (ip/mask) slightly more performant then type 3 (ranges) addresses. It could make a difference on large lists.
