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.

BlindGuy is a great assister to others; your light through the dark tunnel
Default Who's nuts?

A man is driving along a country road, not willing or able to take in the beauty of the overarching branches of the woodland either side. He is in a hurry! All at once, the driver’s side front tyre explodes and is in tatters by the time the man wrestles the cards were safe stop. Cursing under his breath the man reaches for his mobile phone and finds that it has been stolen… he will have to change the tyre himself. Ignoring the beautiful day, the man eyes the building across the road speculatively – set in splendid isolation in the surrounding woodland. It has a high redbrick perimeter wall, huge iron gates and a large sign to the right-hand side of the gate that announces that it is a secure psychiatric hospital. There is a man, holding one of the vertical bars of the gates in each hand and staring intently at the driver as he gets out of his car… he avoids the patient’s gaze, gets the jack out of the back of the car and, like a lot of people do, he puts the wheel nuts together in the hubcap.

The patient from the hospital across the road is still watching the driver, as he rolls the spare wheel around from the back of the car. There is a sudden and startling clap of thunder, that causes the driver to crash into the hubcap, with the spare wheel, knocking all the wheel nuts off centre and then the driver, now a tad off balance steps on the opposite rim of the metal dish, catapulting the wheel nuts into the nearby undergrowth and leaf litter. Even with a strong magnet and lots of time (and the driver has neither of these) he would be ages finding the lost wheel nuts. There is a rumble of thunder and the branches, in the canopy above the road, jostle with each other, letting a few leaves sail fitfully to the ground. The leaves portend the coming of autumn and the branches signal the more pressing prospect of rain. Nothing, considers the driver, has gone right today and he slumps down, back against the rear tyre, angry that misfortune had dogged his progress with apparent purpose and malice.

“Don’t worry” said a voice that seemed to come from out of nowhere, “there is a solution to your problem” the voice continued. The driver took his head out of his hands and looked up to discover that the voice came from the man who had been watching in through the gates of the hospital across the road. That was it, that was the final straw, thought the driver and poured scorn on the hospital patient. “YOU!” yelled the driver, “what could YOU possibly do to help me?” The man the other side of the gate was unabashed and seemed not to hear the anger or resentment. Instead, the hospital patient continued in a pleasant even tone. “Why don’t you just listen?” asked the patient “what have you got to lose, after all?”

The man was right, of course, the driver had nowhere else to go and was out of options, or so it seemed. “Okay, okay… what?” yelled the driver. Seemingly unabashed the patient continued in a pleasant, even voice that was curiously reassuring. “All you need to do” said the psychiatric hospital patient “is to spring the other three hubcaps, take one wheel nut off each of the other three wheels and then use these to attach the spare wheel. Providing you don’t drive too fast, you can get to a garage, buy some more wheel nuts and you’ll be okay!” The motorist listed his head from his hands, as he realised that this would work! “That’s brilliant!” exclaimed the motorist, pausing to think for a moment or two “what on earth are you doing in a place like this?” he added. “Well,” said the patient “I’m mentally ill, not f**king stupid!”
