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 new super fast download system UseNext WARNING

If you use other download file sharing eg torrents, you might have seen the advert for UseNext swift download system. I have just given it a go, what I found is the following ;first it costs, you pay for super downloads in various monthly packages at so many giga bytes, the more Gs the higher the cost ' They explain about there system as a download newservice group for various files -one of which is video,there they use a PAR and RAR system of small package downloads to make up one big file which is supposed to play .I have a LAN player for torrents and 2 other excellent players for ordinary video and dvd,/the files did not play they in fact ran through all the players, leaving me searching both the programs FAQs and the web for a means of playing them . The best i got was a trial on WINRAR which is supposed to archive the files into a playable file. ;Again this did not happen the still did not register any playable file.For people that are new to file sharing and have a problem with gnutella this program would not be a good idea .Mainly i wanted the videos but was stuck with files that did not have the PAR or RAR format and would play. The program does give what it sez very fast downloads but the problem is not easy to solve about these files (or simple ), so please take care of buying time with this program if you can not handle the file problem .It might seem tempting to new users of file sharing but i believe it is possibly likely to cause them trouble and cost. bamfee

Default Usenext is a scam

Hi guys, excuse my newness but I'm just doing the rounds to the forums to spread the word on scam site - Usenext.


There's an employee out there defending them at every op so I thought I'd post some hard evidence proving they're a scam -


- I must first say to you all - Yes I did get the software, which was ok I guess... I did use it but cancelled as soon as I realised I was being charged -

I did sign up for the 14 day trial and they charged me about 1 hour later.

I have since emailed USENEXT 4 times - (nice long queue of 413 they had there!) with no reply given as yet except one basically avoiding the subject in question and giving me the run-around with no refund offered.

Go to:

And you'll see the copies of all the emails I've sent them, the order I made and the receipt they sent me. And this all happened within 48 hours. I signed up, they charged me, I cancelled.

I notice they removed the comment about not charging people while on the 14 day free trial too.

Luckily I took a screen grab of that while it still existed to give to my bank. This can also be found at:

I have posted both screen grabs of my emails and what usenext scam site used to say.

I have very simple questions for them:

1. Why was I charged during the free trial when it says, in bold I will NOT be charged and you're saying you've never charged people??

2. Why did you remove that comment from the site?

3. Why have I not received a reply?

4. How do you live with yourself you slimy piece of cyber scum??


Thank guys!

Hope you've reported this to your bank/CC company & cancelled the transaction. Keep a watch on your statements, just to see that no more payments are taken out of your account.

Hey thanks for that. I did get a response from the CEO trying to explain the whole thing (unsuccesfully in my mind). You can see it at:

Thanks for the advice!

Hyper-kun is a great assister to others; your light through the dark tunnel

There's a simple rule: If someone advertizes with Google for completely unrelated terms, also using the name of other vendors and further register domains that contain the names of other vendors then avoid them like the plaque because they're nothing but spammers. You don't buy from spammers, never, ever. When you check their site they're also using newspaper and magazine articles about the "Usenet" to fool people to think these articles refer to them. Well, they had to remove a couple of those since the last time to avoid getting sued for those false claims. They also put such bullshit as "100% legal" on their website as if that means whatever you download is legal or as if other P2P network were in any way illegal. This all big FUD and bullshit. Last but not least, they rip you off because they just provide access to binary Usenet groups which you can get for much less money. And by the way, they do have control about what you can download. So there service is much closer to being illegal than Gnutella, Bittorrent, edonkey etc.

By the way, there "14 days free" is also bullshit. You will have to pay in any case. Don't even think about getting your money back.
