Members need to supply these details >>> System details - help us to help you (click on blue link)


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.

ASAP go to your bank/credit company & explain it was a scam. You need your money back.

Did you receive any software? Is it Limewire? What did you get?

Unhappy dummy me

Well, I'll join in and admit that we were also duped by We joined the lifetime membership...I know, I know, it was stupid...for about 40 bucks. We thought since the whole stink with Napster that you could only get filesharing software if you paid for it. My brother in law, who the biggest "soulseek" fan you'd want to meet, kept telling me that I shouldn't have to pay for anything. I should have listened to him. When I asked for a refund, they told me the 30 day refund time has passed and I'm out of luck.'s the email transaction between me and the oh so bright one at

Unfortunately, I didn't realize that your service was a scam until today
when I actually became educated on the hundreds of these scams running on
the net that take unsuspecting people's money for a service that you don't
even offer...or for a better choice of words, for a service isn't yours. I
can go to and download it for free..completely without your
service. It certainly shouldn't have cost me $43.15. So what exactly is this
"lifetime" membership giving me? Filesharing software that's free to
download if only you know to visit their website? But that's ok. I will be
reporting this and passing this information on to to others. I will also be
filing a claim with paypal about your service. Hopefully they will be able
to assist in the refund of my $43.15. If you would like to read more
information on your scam and hundreds like yours just visit

Their reply:
We don't sell the software you use. We only provide tech support for it.
GnutellaForums is a sight maintained and operated by and is
biased against all others. Our service is not a scam and is a valuable
service to many of our customers. For some it is unnecessary which is why
we offer a 30 day refund policy. Try getting that from any of the other



What more can I say?? But I really appreciate you guys informing people that these guys are cons. I'll chalk it up to experience but maybe posts like this will help other uninformed people make the right decision.

Angry allcoolrefunds???

Me too.
Got caught yesterday. Should know better. Maybe I was caught off guard 'cos I'm so used to using to download at $0.10 a track.

Nonetheless - just scoured allcoolmusic's site and spotted the 30 day money back guarantee (on the faq page). I'll let you know if they keep their word - or not.

I was also billed but didn't even think about it until checking out the forum. It was through a site called and there were three levels of "membership". I feel like such a fool.....

Did anyone who bought the membership thru get their money back? I contacted citibank(this is who it went thru) to dispute, but it is Sunday and I have to wait 2 days for a response. Trying to figure out if I should spend the money to have the online check stopped or hope they give me my money back? Any input would be great.
