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.

Lightbulb Bearshare Blocking Gnutella Client !

No it is not ready, or even in the works really...
How about it tho ?
A client that would download from any client but would not show any files or allow uploads to Bearshare. Since it would have only a few users it could be updated VERY often to nullify any attempts that the Bearshare developer might make to defeat the Bearshare blocking feature. (did that make sense ? ) : )
Bearshare is a fine piece of work, but it is windoze only & is loaded with SpyWare !
... yuck , Vinnie you are flat out tricking your userbase into using bearshare , if your average windoze user even knew what spyware was he/she would probably download LimeWire instead (same features, same price)
One might assume that Bearshare users :

A: dont know or care to know much about the program they're using ( if they did they wouldnt download a spyware filled program)
B: are less likely to share lots of files or do stuff like leaving their high-bandwith computer on all night to feed the network which us open-source junkies will often do : )
C: they are less likely to care about the Gnutella community ...

Hmmmm perhaps this is not a good idea after all... My Post is starting to sounds like a bunch of Elitist garbage...
I retract everything i have said
Peace, Love & Gnutella !

Something to keep in mind tho in case GreedBagMcBearShareDeveloper &GnutellaInventor decides to make bearshare proprietary or include adds or.....

Default reminder

Perhaps I have to state this clearly:

This is not the Anti-Bearshare or Anti-Vinnie forum. Whatever you think of Bearshare you can post in the appropriate forums (Bearshare or General). This forums is about Phex and Phex surely is not against Bearshare. I won´t fight any other gnutella program (as long as it´s not a leecher which Bearshare definitely isn´t).

So keep you opinion where it belongs but not here.

I was not only refering to this unregistred in this thread but also to the vinnie kills phex thread.
I'm getting so tired of these vinnie this and that threads and almost always the spyware has to be mentioned..........pffffffff

Thumbs up

Konrad started the Vinnie crap (and understandably so)... and only 2 other threads (including this one) were spawned off from that one, not much to get tired over. I will agree with you if this does continue, if another thread pops up about bearshare and Vinnie and/or Michael those napster rejects, but I dont think it will and I dont think its worth talking about much more then this last post.

Plus it should be over now that Konrad is back (although I am not sure what that means anymore, just that its a good thing).

Anway we should all be helping people with questions, like the Linux Newbie I was trying to help...

There's only one more thing I like to mention:
If you're a regular poster and you stand for what you say, I think you should register.

Btw, I don't think Konrad started any "vinnie crap" It was turned into crap by a unregistred

Well, technically you are right, what Konrad said was not "crap" because Vinnie was arrogant and I can understand why he wanted to leave because of it. I can also understand why some people would be ****ed off at Vinnie as well, while some of their claims outrageous, and I can see that Vinnie has a bad background (attitude problem as well, quite frankly I was not surprised when I heard why Konrad was quiting) and why some people chose to vent, it doesnt tire me any really, and I agree it doesnt really belong here much, but I have a higher tolerance then others.

I'm not the unregistered that started these alternate threads, but I did talk in them (as I am now). I dont think the Spyware crap is a big deal now.

Plus I am a transcient, going from website to website, and if I had to register to every website I visit, I would probably not have much time to post... as soon as things subside I probably wont come back here for a week, but because things are interesting now I'll stick around for a while, and I notice the Phex boards are not full of technical problems (that is either a good thing or a bad thing), so there is less reason for me to be a resident here...
