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.

Yes I too was suckered in. Paid for Frostwire for my daughter's PC then found they were scamming $5 a month from me.
Their 'helpline' too is a scam - huge call charges followed by a greasy toe rag who kept asking me to repeat every letter, one by one, of my name and e-mail addres, put me on hold, repeated the questions blah blah then wanted all my credit card details...
I've reported it to my bank.

Spread the word mp3musichq is a very glossy scam!

Default Frostwire Scam

Thanks to all of you I was able to get my refund of $40.71. I was within my 7 days to receive a refund and I happened on to your site. I read your notes and decided to see if I could get my money back. I first called their 1-800 support line and didn't get through - just a hang-up. I then called my credit card company and asked them to put in a duspute - just like you said. I decided to try to call them ('MP3MusicHQ.COM') again and I did get through to "Liz". I explained that I was unhappy with the product, that it wasn't connecting me and that the searches were coming up "need my resources" or with an error message. She realized I was within my 7 days and offered to refund everything except my tech support, I said no thank you. She then told me there would be a $9.90 fee charged to my account for processing my refund. I told her I wouldn't accept that because I was within my 7 days and no where did it state that. She put me on hold to talk to her supervisor - in the mean time I received an e-mail from her giving me a full refund and not charging me the service fee. She came back on the line and told me that I wouldn't be charged the $9.90 fee. Said it would take between 5-10 business days for it to show up on my statement. Wish me luck. I hope this helps someone! Thank you for your help!

Angry Scammed

I guess I am one that got scammed. I didnt read about them after I paid $40.00. I called them right back and ask for the refund. They told me that they would but to this day they never have. I have been trying for months now and nothing. Everytime I called them they all said the samething. My refund has been issued and I should be getting it. And for me to contact my bank about it. Which I have and the bank has nothing from them. So PLEASE BEWARE To everyone that got the refund back I am happy for you.
