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.

I don't think all of this TrueStarwarrior bashing would have started, if it wasn't for his very first two rude posts in this thread. The very first poster in this thread was angry that trojans and spyware were installed on his system, and without any warnings, and this software was still available for download. I think he (and for that matter, all of us) had a right to be angry and post his feelings and concerns. Especially since several people in other earlier threads reported this problem also, but never got a response back from LimeWire. Both LimeWire's website and their version 2.x software has links to this forum for support. That makes this forum their official support site forum. That very first thread was not aimed at TrueStarwarrior, it was aimed at LimeWire. But for some reason, he thought the very first post was a personal attack on him. He decided to be rude and childish and post those first couple of replies. I think that was wrong...especially for a moderator !! Period and end of story. I think if he didn't respond in the way he did, the childish flaming that has gone on between him and other users would have never happened. I personally think that if TrueStarwarrior wants to continue being a moderator, he should not take posts aimed at LimeWire as personal attacks on him, and if he feels the need to respond to a post, he needs to act professionally.

The problem would have been easly discovered if they just would have done basic testing on the third-party software they decide to bundle. This problem is their fault for not doing basic tests. Being ignorant to a law, doesn't give you a defense in a court of law. I think the same holds true here. This trojan and spyware problem is equally LimeWire's fault.

I totally agree. It definitely was LimeWire's fault. But there's no need to endlessly discuss this point if the whole thing is over and done with. I am positive the limefolks have learned their lesson and that things like that will not happen again in the near future.

trustarwarrior will not return to read in or post on this thread. limewire did apologize. the spyware seems to be out of version 2.0.4. tru hosts clean limewire. it is my opinion that everything that had to be said here has been said and that any further discussion of things is a waste of time.

Default How badly infected is Limewire?

I'm a really big fan of LimeWire as their Software and Download speeds are superior to anything else I've tried, but even with a strong Anti-virus package and firewall, I'm consistantly told by computed technicians that LimeWire is dangerous. 3 times limewire has been connected to rendering my Laptop inoperable and cost £75 every time I need to get it repaired. I just need to know, is LimeWire the problem or possibly the files I download (Only Music and Videos) because I really don't want to stop using it.

Thanks for replying. I most recently had the free version (basic) but it was the most up to date release.

First Time i was Using McAfee Firewall with AVG 7.0 Free
Then Windows One Care Live Beta
