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 More Scammers !

I would like to say a big THANK YOU ! I currently use Limewire for my downloads and I was recently told of Frostwire, so I went to Google and searched for it, after scanning the links I just clicked on the first one, and guess what? they wanted my credit card details, not on their life were they getting those!

So I went back and found you guys, again thank you for setting me straight. I now have a FREE copy of Fostwire on my computer. Happy downloading!

You can add this one to your list of scammers:

Default I got my money back after 2 months

I didn't realize Frostwire was free until a did a little searching on the internet and found this site. I had paid $37 for it though in October. After I found out it was a scam I called the 24 hour support line to get my money back. I came right out and said I know the business you are doing is a scam and that I want my money back. He told me that I could not get a refund since it had been 2 months since I downloaded it. I threatened to report them to the FBI and as soon as I said that he was very quick to get me my refund. He said he was going to have to charge me $9.95 for processing fees. I told them that was illigal since I should have never paid for the service in the first place. I threatened with the FBI again and he said he would waive that fee and I ended up getting my $37 back.
I find it very intresting that as soon as a threaten to report them to the FBI they were very quick to give me my money back.

Default is also a scam site. They charge you for Frostwire and then tack on a charge for a bogus virus scan sweeper.

Default I'm another sucker!

I've been getting ripped off by this mob for over 10 months now just found it in my bank statement and wondered what it was ended up here.

Thanks for letting me know!

Not only just under $10US a month but also a small fee from bank for conversion to $US.

I'm not at all surprised that our banks don't inform us what they may know to be fraudulent activity on our accounts when they benefit from it too!!!

just wonder how many people never actually check their bank statements to even know that they are being ripped off by these utter *******s.

I'm juist going to accept my loss and get the bank to cancel this activity

Well...if you tell us exactly what the problem is, maybe we can help (saying "it doesn't work" isn't really enough to go on).
