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


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.

Face it, you regret making the obnoxious comment that you made and don't know how to intelligently respond to those who took offense to it. Why not apolgize, admit you're an *** and go on with life?

If you would care to read this thread before commenting, you would have seen that I already did. Why not think before you speak?

I did. You didn't apalogize. The closest you came was being sorry if you offended anyone or "ruffled feathers." Not very sincere.

Besides, you went back into obnoxious mode with the "webcrawling hermits" comment. You are registered as "TruStarwarrior." How does that make you less anonymous than an unregistered poster? If I registered myself as TruStarfighter would that satisfy you and mean that I am not hiding behind, as you put it, the "anonymous nature of the internet." Give me a break.

Shall I quote myself once again? I guess I have to, since you can't paraphrase properly.

Nuff said.

Yes, registering makes it easier to know who we're talking to. Checking the IPs of every poster named "Unregistered Guest" becomes rather dull.

Yes, I may be in an abnoxious mode. I am the bane of all on this thread. I should be fired because I fought fire with fire. But I will <big><big>stop</big></big>...

I won't be wasting any more of anyone's time here. It's been fun, everyone! Take care!

P.S. I will not read any retorts you would like to make to this response, so feel free to burn me with whatever fire you've got left.

TruStarwarrior,

Don't worry about that anonymous terrorist. What we have here is a stupid fool (or perhaps several of them) who actually thinks that you represent LimeWire, and that what you, and independent person who does this on his spare time, is supposed to cuddle lamers and trolls. As a representative of a company you don't even work for. HAH!

Take the first post as an example. This board is apparently run by individuals that do this for free, as a service to the community. Yet he thinks that he is entitled to a direct, personal reply from the LimeWire staff. That is just ridiculous! Losing faith in a program based on a PUBLIC FORUM? How stupid can one get?

And then there's idiot who said "Are you trying to ruin your business?" as a response to your initial reply. What business? You are doing this for free... Wow, some people...

And then there's another stupid person who writes:

Quote:
do in their spare time? if theres adware/spyware being installed this is not spare time. this is FOR MONEY.
YES, the moderators do this in their spare time, you IDIOT! They are not employees in the company! Geez, some people...

And:

Quote:
This kind of problem with LimeWire and this kind of attitude from the staff has made LimeWire look very bad !!!
This idiot is talking about YOU, TruStarwarrior. IDIOT, TruStarwarrior DOES NOT REPRESENT LIMEWIRE!

And then, one of the biggest idiots of all:

Quote:
The developer at LimeWire still refuses to answer some valid valid questions posted on this forum. Why has he/she refused to answer ??? What is he/she hiding ???
You ****ing idiot! Just becase the developers DO NOT HAVE THE TIME TO REPLY TO EVERY SINGLE POST IN A FORUM, that does not mean that they are refusing to answer, or that they are hiding something.

Are you ****ing stupid? Do you have a ****ing pea for a brain? You ****ing idiot. Are you so ****ing stupid that you do not understand that perhaps YOUR CONSPIRACY THEORIES ARE ****ING MORONIC?

And the ****ing idiot continues:

Quote:
Why is there options to prevent the install of some spyware, but others are still installed ?
ARE YOU ****ING DENSE? THE POINT IS THAT THE DEVELOPERS OF LIMEWIRE DO NOT WANT TO BUNDLE SPYWARE, AND WANT PEOPLE TO BE GIVEN A ****ING CHOICE WHETHER TO INSTALL THE ADDITIONAL PROGRAMS OR NOT!

GOD DAMMIT YOU PEOPLE ARE STUPID! ****ING IDIOTS! AND YOU IN PARTICULAR!

So, ****ing whining idiots with **** for brains... Quit whining for ****s sake. You are all a bunch of anonymous ****heads who don't even understand what software is all about. You don't understand that open forums with voluntary moderators who do this for free, on their spare time, cannot be connected with the company! IDIOTS!

I, on behalf of everyone with more than half a brain, would like to thank TruStarwarrior for being so calm and reasonable. I also support his first post in this forum a hundred per cent. The first poster was a whining idiot who didn't know what the hell he was talking about. GET A ****ING LIFE!

(Yes, I realize that I am unregistered as well, but I don't usually read/post in this forum, and can't be bothered to register. If you have a problem with that, please **** off. (This was not aimed at TruStarwarrior.))

Wrong...check the id's of some the moderators. 3 out 5 of them work for LimeWire. But even if none of them did, I don't think the first post was aimed directly at all of the moderators. It was aimed at the support people at LimeWire. No this board is not run by LimeWire, but since they have a support link to it on their website, they should monitor it and help their users. I'm not going to bother with the rest of your stupid remarks, I think most people would agree with what I said, and it applies to most of your comments.

I had to post one other remark. Are YOU dense ? I think the point of the person was trying to make, was that LimeWire has bundled software, but they are not given the choice to opt-out of ALL of them. Why only give the option to opt-out for some of them, and why is the user not warned that other undisclosed spyware or trojans will be installed without a choice !!

the limefolks thought that you could opt out of every bundeled software except cydoor. cydoor, however, is explicitly listed in the license agreement (it is even called "LimeWire and Cydoor license agreement). they, too, were deceived by the spyware companies.

they will continue to bundle third party software because they have to. they must pay developers and servers and bandwidth, and they make no direct profit with limewire. how do you think shall they pay the bills? 6 bucks for lime pro is more than fair, if you want to have lime for free, you have to download bonzi buddy.

maybe three moderators are paid by limewire, that doesn't change the fact that this particular unregistered was arguing with trustarwarrior and it was pretty clear that his remarks were aimed at him. he is doing all this in his spare time and it is ignorant to insist on limewire getting rid of him. would one of the unregistereds do his work? they don't have the time to register!

limewire 2.0.4 is out and it seems they have removed the spyware. they do apologize on their website. additionally, Tru is hosting clean limewire which is all you could ask for. so stop complaining and let's get back to constructive posts.

post script: to the unregistered guy who was trying to defend trustarwarrior: not even vinnie uses so many *s in a single post. go and flame elsewhere. perhaps you know who is who on this board, that doesn't mean you are less annoying than others.

tru: Jar files are linked to javaw by default and therefore can be executed by a doubleclick. they are however not linked to javaw if you use the JRE 1.3.1 (the one that is installed by limewire). i think that must be a bug, all java versions since 1.2 made jar files executable by doubleclick. if you like, you can manually link them to 'javaw.exe -jar "%1"'.

PS: indeed jar files are zip files. just another extension.
