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.

It seems to me that a lot of the sites look similar. One thing I've noticed with any scam site is they usually have a 3-step process where you give very personal info that they shouldn't need. On the filesharing ones they usually have a pretty long list of bullets on thier main page.

Definately try to dispute this charge w/ the credit card company. I too have been scammed in the past, it's not a fun thing. Luckily, you only lost a small amount of money, I lost a lot more. Live and learn. I'm more careful now but it's so easy to be taken. Good luck.

So why are google ads still being used around here when they throw nothing but "buy free hacked up limewire here" ads at everyone?

stief has a spectacular aura about

long story

it's not only here: the ads are automatically targeted to the keywords on the page. Soon after a site admin block them, they show up again, probably tiggered by different keywords and linked to different sites. However they do it--innocent money ends up in the wrong pockets.

hehe--the advertisers are as quick as filesharers in getting around blocks.

Re: Stief's post; yep I've been making note of them & reporting to CC but still a few keep coming back. Last I heard CC was going to get things fixed up with google, etc. But it doesn't seem to have worked. I'll re-report them as I've been doing.

I did the same thing through the same site. I was routed there through an email I received after visiting the LW website, thanking me for visiting and asking me to join. I also noticed the same day was charged for pro seperately that I never asked for.

Default mymusicinc.

I came here looking for a different subject and learn I've been duped by the same company. I called the 908-248-3113. I'll wait and see if I hear anything, it didn't have any company name to it though. I came across their site from gateway when I thought, great, I'll try that to get a year's worth of Starbucks, and gateway rewards is another scammer too.

I'm angry about this of course, they keep emailing me too (mymusicinc.), but this is 3-4 months ago I did this, but I'll report it to my bank as fraud. Don't see much else I can do.

If I may ask, how do I know which songs and movies I download are safe to share as I don't want lawyers and attoryneys knocking on my door for illegal sharing. I have copied a lot of stuff into other folders on my computer, but I don't know if all can be put up to share, how can I be safe in the sharing, I want to share without problems, please help.
