Moderators

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 My Music Inc

I am certain that My Music Inc has been discussed somewhere on this forum; I saw it a few days ago in a Google search. Well, here it is, again. My apologies if this annoys you.

I belong to BMG Classical Music club, but I don't like buying from them because they charge $10 for every disk they ship. So, last week I looked for an alternative. I ran across a website that highly recommended 3 music websites; the first on the list was for My Music Inc. So, I went there. It looked promising, so I joined, forking over $49.90, which was collected by ClickBank from my PayPal account. For some reason, the My Music Website absolutely refused to acknowledge my credit card, almost as though the code for submission were partly-disabled.

When I entered the membership area, I was directed to download MP3 Rocket, then directed how to use MP3 Rocket. The software works nicely. It doesn't bother me that it is shareware, or that My Music Inc is using someone else's application. What bothers me is that My Music Inc does not control any of the music. As best as I can tell, MP3 Rocket simply accesses Limewire's peer file-sharing network.

So, on October 12, I used a link I found on Ripoff Report to request a refund from My Music Inc. My request was acknowledged with a message that it would be processed in 2 to 3 days (apparently, either accepted or rejected). I have not heard anything from My Music Inc since October 14, when they finally stopped sending me the generic spam message: "Thank you for visiting my music inc"

Today, I sent them a final message, saying that either they refund me by the end of today, or I will take further action against them and everyone associated with them. Then, I contacted ClickBank and posted on their user forum (which is not associated with ClickBank, even though the head guy of ClickBank is a moderator of the forum). I also submitted a dispute form with PayPal. I have several other things I intend to do. One way or another, I am going to get $49.90 worth of entertainment out of My Music Inc.

Hi Irate,

You might have heard of them through reading this thread below? It has a list of scam sites
http://www.gnutellaforums.com/showth...threadid=28751

This thread has info about getting your money back from scammers, you might find some interesting info/tips
Get your $$ back!!!(music members)

*MP3 Rocket is just a LW rip-off. Depending on how happy you are with the app, you might be better off getting rid of it & downloading the official basic LW, which is free. If you download LW from the official site, you will get a version that is clean (free of any malware). www.limewire.com is the only official site for download.

Just further to that, is on page 5 I think, Known Scam Sites (click on link)

Further posts in the thread suggests alternate ways to get your money back. Particularly a few pages later plus.

My Music Inc. is a company that pretends to supply music whereas it simply supplies K-Lite, a gnutella network program. And they ask you to pay money to buy this, ie: one year or two year fee or Lifetime.
It is all a rip-off. They are pretending they are the ones with the music, whereas the music actually comes from gnutella users like you and others in the gnutella file-sharing community.

Nobody should need to pay any money to use the Gnutella network. It is free and there are lots of free gnutella programs you can use. Phex, FrostWire, ShareAza, LimeWire Basic, BearShare 5 beta, Gnucleus, ... the list goes on.
