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.

Actually, just kicking them off our internet, which -we- (the isps) own, would be rather effective...

1: there is no "ownership" on ip ranges, they have nothing to claim if other people would just announce theirs and don't reply to abusemail :P
that would only remove them from the internet, not help them out of business tho.

2: any larger isp can do a hostile takeover on their members (such as vivaldi (universalmusic) with 1.2 billion shares at 26 dollars each both google and level3 could easily buy them and dismantle their companies).. would be better for the internet as a whole if someone did.. maybe we should collect some money?

3: their little copyrights thing can't be maintained in court anyway
my password string generator can and has generated all possible byte sequences up to 2gb stringlength, therefore all midi files (common music notation), cd iso's, books, mp3's movies etc included.

4: their little copyrights thing can also not be proven in court in case the media is compressed, after all, it's only a 'work based upon'.. the frequencies are different and therefore the music notation is different as well, the length is different and the data is different. most stuff out there on the various p2p networks happens to be compressed.. mind you, noone ever fought them on that point because everyone just 'assumes' they're right.. wars aren't about who's right, they're about who's left in the end, and if everyone just let's them have their way, it'll be them

5: in all cases where we had contact with them regarding sites of our customers they weren't even capable of providing proof that they actually had orders from whomever they claimed to represent to represent them and stalk us and spread lies about our customers which they could not even prove (see points 3 and 4).

6: they can take you to court all they like, they're a bunch of nerdy attorneys after all.. ambulance chasers, but when it get's personal and dangerous they'll just hide away.

we should not remove them from our internet, we should just remove them of our planet (literally)..

furthermore, on with point 7, and probably the most important one.

7: copyrights are NOT democratically supported
should there ever be a referendum on that crap i'm quite sure people will not be in favour of a law that would put 90% of the population in prison if enforced properly.
(after all, everyone has got a copied text or part of a book or song somewhere..)
if your country limits your freedom by telling you which byte sequences you're allowed to download and upload to other computer systems then there is something wrong with the democracy in your country or politicians have been corrupted.
in that case, the solution is simple, you take a gun, make sure it's a larger one than 'your' government has, and go to the capitol and just take it over and make sure the new constitution has a law against corrupcy.
such concepts are known as 'revolutions'.. maybe unheard of to the average computer nerd but in most smaller countries it is most definately an option and when the time comes where you have to decide wether you pay *****5M in fines to RIAA or simular terrorist groups or you buy weapons for it the choice is clear.

so, now that we've covered the most important points, just stop developing all this p2p bullshit and put the FTP servers with anonymous upload back online as well as a website with access to the same files and indexed into all search engines.
makes things hell a lot easier.

we can also just play it to the point where the governments have to decide, they either take the internet with -our- rules or it's back to the stoneage for them.

the internet really should have it's own law and it's own representation in the UN as all those corrupted little governments out there do not protect us from mafia such as the RIAA but instead provide the RIAA with means to blackmail money out of us and our clients.

as for my copyrights on everything because my string generating program generated it, you are all free to copy and distribute all combinations of bytes up to 2gb, except for the RIAA and their members. (so far for outdated business concepts and using their 'law's against them
