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.

How comes, you run code in Linux?

Would really interest me, how you manage that (and with which user-rights).

Nonsense Sgt.!!
If you really wanted to let us know, you would have gone to an internet cafe, logged in with a new psydo and would have posted it. Or you would have posted with a socket5 proxy to make sure you stay anonym. Or used the PM function telling some of the developers secretly;.......since they are the ones who have to prevent things that happened with the other clients, as you've mentioned....
But you put it the way that anyone would have to think you're about to blow the cover of a CIA agent.........gimmy a break, okay!!

I believe Gunsou err Sgt. is just a joker. We all know that filenames are rather irrelevant. You can't tell from the filename whether a file is good or evil. Though there's still some spam that's easy to recognize by simply looking at the filename. I guess that's called overkill. Even the stupider users recognize these files by now. The trick has been overused, people are more cautious and Gnutella clients have rudimentary spam filters which catches most of the simple spam anyway. It would be fairly idiotic to mark dangerous files.

Anyway, your advice, foolofthehill, to use a proxy or whatever isn't really clever. If someone has signed a NDA - which is fairly normal nowadays in many business areas and IT anyway. By saying too much one could easily expose his identity. Not to you, but to those who he is or was working for. Many business contracts nowadays have a clause that says you're not allowed to work for a business in the same area for a couple months. And of course you're not supposed to tell your next boss the trade secrets of you learned at the other business. Telling these to the public is several degrees worse of course. That has little to do with being an "secret agent" or whatever. Of course, for some people it's pretty hard to keep a secret. It's well-known that stupid hackers expose themselves and get caught this way.

Rest assured those who work against Gnutella skim through these forums too.

Further, sometimes people ridicule a topic so that it isn't taken seriously anymore. I doubt that businesses already "attack" Linux users but it might be time to get started. "file permissions" and "user privileges" are not a huge obstacle when it comes to Joe Average. The only real obstacle is that Linux is not as stream-lined as Windows and any known exploit will only work for a small portion of all Linux installations. That said, there was Mac version of the SonyBMG rootkit too and now that Apple switched to the x86, everybody predicts a huge increase in exploits for Macs simply because it's less work and x86 has some inherent flaws that make it easier exploitable than other architectures like PPC or SPARC etc.

Default Hi Hyper-kun

Hi Hyper-kun

And you also know that to access the internet You have to go through an Isp

Which can and does, in some countries keep records of your internet activities

In the UK Their trying to make it A law that they have to hand over these records if requested by the police.

that's how their now starting to catch some of the kiddie porn freaks over here

So proxies as you know are usless

Internet cafes, smile your on camera, they also log everything you do and access, like your own computer does

I'm pretty much aware about such contracts, which I had once signed myself. However, Sgt. posted his comment in a way like "they're about to bring you <gnutella> down, one way or the other".......
If his post was meant to be helpful (in a preventing way), he would be able to find means and ways to hint into the right direction without exposing himself to the public, or his former employer.
But not doing so, or excusing himself not to do so, leaves me with 2 alternatives to think.........the first one has been implied by LOTR and the second one would be to assume that he wants to spread (intentionally) a certain kind of unease around the Gnutella network......

@Sgt.
Don't take my opinion as an offense,......rather think about how your comments are understood from people who might not be that deep into the matter as you stated to be (or were).
I don't even want to know what's going on behind certain doors in regard to P2P, my life is already exciting enough; but it will come down to how you see the approaches of certain groups (of which you say you have knowledge of), and to the conclusion you draw from this knowledge (in an ethical way).
And let me tell you, being a German, I have learned not to accept every and all because of laws and rules.........(which is actually your excuse,....)

Just my 5-cent-worth

Hi foolofthehill
No offence taken just looked back and seen what I had written

I did not mean to Imply that this forum was under attack, what I was supposed to have said, the record companies and Film companies are going after the people that use the P2P networks

U download a certain song or a film, you go to play this song or film

Ur computer will slow down for about 10-20 sec while certain files are being written in the background because of the code written into the song or the film

The first file that will be written has ORKL in it's title, (that's not it's full name)look for the file on your hard drive

the computer will then be checked for any P2P programs and the like

the program written to your computer, will then try and access the internet

this information will then be transmitted to the company I used to work for

that way they get an Idea of what networks they can flood with fakes

also sent at the time is the Ip address of your computer

That way they can tell who you are

I think you also asked which firewall I use on my gaurd computer that accesses the internet, I use Zone Alarm Security Suit, where all the programs have to ask for access to the internet (Don't know why you were intersted in that)

Sgt

Sgt
You mean in the other thread where you had problems to access the forum...?
Well, that was just a thought that port 80 or HTTP might have been listed into the access block list, at a time I had by myself the same problem with other forums......; I then added whatever possible and connected to those forums to my exception list, but didn't change anything....

Two month long no problem at all, and since yesterday I have to use F5 to get access to the Vietnamese Forum I'm in.....

Thanks anyway for giving some more clearance about your comment; appreciate it....
