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 Been actually accused of possessing indecent images?

Hope the mods dont delete this but here goes....

Hi, I am looking for some help, I am planning on writing a story/article (not sure exactly what just yet) on people being accussed/arrested/prosecuted for possession of child pornography when they lay claim at the doors of p2p networking sites.

I am not a reporter or anything like that as you can probably tell my grammar lol, and the reason i am writing is because i have been in the same boat, Ill go into the story fully at some point in here, but last december computers were siezed and over the 5 years computer life span four hundred and odd indecent images were found.

This was a terrible ordeal and an ordeal that you see happen to other people on the news not something that happens to me, it was weird, scary and just didnt feel real, but the truth of the matter is, it was real, it effects your life in so many ways its untrue, at the time i did alot of research into other cases (this was after i had initially given an account to police of what may or may not be on the computer, so before they had searched them) and i was amazed to find that the account i had given the police was cropping up all over the place, it got me angry more than anything, because if it is such a common occurance then why is it still being allowed to happen and why are moderately innocent naive fools being prosecuted its like some using a drug through spiking then whilst spiked getting arrested for it!

Anyways, I wanted to go to court but knew that would mean that my details would be released and could cause unwanted repurcussions, i could handle it myself to clear myself and then happily move away, but i couldnt handle my family going through said trauma so i accepted what we knew the cps were going to offer me, a 2 year caution, even in the interviews with the police because of how my initial story didnt change and it matched what they found on the computer and somewhat proved the manner in which i described it being downloaded (dont want to go into too much detail about that just yet) i could tell that they believed that i was a prat who was horny and naive as a young lad but they still had to follow the letter of the law, plus not to mention with that many images they would have had to push for a court appearance rather than caution if they didnt believe my story!!!!

But anyway i left the police station feeling so much more relieved that it was over sort of, had to sign on the sex offenders register for 2 years which was horrible but it neednt effect my life as i have no intention of working with kids or anything like that and two years of telling the old bill where im living isnt going to kill me.

But then recently from some department about the welfare of children bollox decided to send a private and confidential letter through the post to my previous address (just moved and re registered, so they didnt have my new address at time of sending) by recorded delivery, my previous addy was a block of flats i was staying with a mate in a flat there, anyway, got a phone call a letter had been delivered, he had no idea who signed for it but they had opened it and it had been read, then put in another envelope and slipped under the door, so now my name is out there and once again im living in fear that my life could be destroyed.

Theres nothing i can do about it, whats done is done but what i do intend to do by whatever means necceassary is tell my story to the world to make it known that it does happen and it is a life changing drama that can be avoided, my young cousin is about 14 now, starting to use the computer, will no doubt be looking at porn soon enough if not already, whats to stop him from doing exactly what i did and using limewire for porn.

What I aim to do, along with my story i want to include case studies of other people and their families who have been in the same situation, I would like contact on here through pm or using the email facility, as i fully understand from first hand expierence that its an embarrassing situation in whcih you probably feel ashamed for no reason I understand that you will be aprehensive about coming forward, and for that reason pm on here would be better as that reveals nothing about you personally so i couldnt find you NO NAMES!!!

I know its a bit of weird request but the more i can highlight the situation the more i will feel something positive may have come from this fiasco that still might fully ruin my life and lead me to suicide if it gets out, **** when you live in a town where there is like one degree of seperation!!!

The sort of stuff im looking for from you, is just your story of the time it happened, how you have said you have come about the material, how the police were with you on the whole situation and what the outcome is, and what its done to you now.

Anything would be greatly appreciated even if its just you saying that you have been through it and got through it

Heres one story i found earlier

- Trojan horse found responsible for child porn - Talkback at ZDNet UK

I wish i could get hold of him to see how its effected him now since his case was back in 2003 and his caution would be up now.

Anyways, appreciate any help and be careful downloading out there, stick to safe websites for porn
