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.

It seems I cannot edit my post. I did not intend to post behind a screen of anonymity.

This is an excellent suggestion. Just one problem. It's already failed - on more than one occasion.

Default Clicktilluwin game

This program isn't some elaborate trojan program bend on wreaking havoc on the internet, it's just BS ad-ware. If you go to their site http://www.clicktilluwin.com/clickprivacyterms.htm they'll tell you everything about it, and how to remove it. There are much more nefarious programs out there then this. Check out www.cexx.org

If one more rude person leaves, the better for all of us. I'm sorry if this offends you. If you want to think me rude, go ahead.
Great! When are you leaving?

I beg to differ with you Jon that this was a simple as-ware. I suggest you read the newly revised research on the trojan done by F-Secure: http://www.europe.f-secure.com/v-descs/dlder.shtml

This software opens a security hole in your system by downloading and execututing files. What prevents them (clicktouwin) or somebody else to download and execute files from this hole ? This program also reports info about your system. Also they try to trick the user that's it is a valid window file trying to access the internet, by naming itself the name of "Explorer.exe". Pretty sneaky !!

This is far more then a simple ad-ware, but even so, this is ad-ware that LimeWire did not test or tell us that this was going to be installed on our system.

I am glad that LimeWire finally prevented version 2.02 from being download by more people, and posted a warning on their website. But there is more to be done and I don't understand why it has not been done yet. Many people do not have anti-virus, or the current definitions. They need to be provided some kind of fix, either manual or automatic, to remove this trojan. They also need to provide the users more details about this trojan. Many are well known now.

Also, it would be nice for them to provide answers to some of the very valid questions posted in this thread. What haven't they bothered to respond ?

Yes you can run LW by just doubleclicking runlime.jar .
Linking to it won't work but doubleclicking the file directly does launch LW fine .

If it aint supposed to work thatway why does it do om my comp ??

Thumbs down Bad news

Limewire is getting a bad rep on some of the boards I go to, it even made the news in a negative way. I think it'll be awhile before people start trusting this P2P again.

Oh yes, and please get rid of the grumpy moderator trustar, Thanks...

Default LimeWire admits bundling is dangerous

So according to the Wired article, LimeWire's Bildson says bundling Spyware is dangerous:

"It is hard to monitor the behavior of bundled software over the life of that software," Bildson said. "Changes can be made on the server after the fact that allow the software to become dangerous. We are looking for safer ways to support our free software installations without the dangers that are always presented by third-party bundled software."

So I suggest that until they find a better way to test and prevent spyware from installing without the user's notice, and trojans from infecting the user's system...stop bundling them !!!
