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 Fight Morpheus! - Protect Your System

When it somes to Morpheus, there is NO SUCH THING as getting something for nothing!

For those of you who don't already know,

If you download Morpheus to your computer, it will INFECT your system causing unwanted advertisements to pop up out of nowhere and sending you to webpages that you didn't even want to go to. Morpheus has also been revealed as a new breed of Spyware. This means that when you install it, it scatters various files throughout your computer, without you knowing. These files are used to SPY on what you do on your computer and where you go on the internet. The use this to harvest personal information about you and to bury you in unwanted advertisements.

How can you disinfect your computer? There are two programs that you will need to download to completely disinfect your computer, and they're both free. (please note that the parasites that these programs destroy remain on your computer EVEN if you've uninstalled Morpheus.)

The first is called Morphbuster and can be found at: a

The second is called AdAware. You can download it at:

If you run these two programs (to completely proctect your system, you need to run both), your system should be completely disinfected and you'll be able to continue using Morpheus, without the parasites that come with it.

-Hope this helped

"pop ups oh no, lmao. just use a pop up killer or ban the server manually for the ads it really isn't that hard!!"

It's more complicated then that. Morpheus's pop-ups are being displayed from files hidden in your computer. Kazaa does a similar thing only with SaveNow. Most pop-up killers will NOT stop these from being displayed. Just about the only way to get rid of these is to use the programs above (you can do it manually but it's a lot of work).

But it's a bigger issue than just the pop-ups. Morpheus is making tons of money at our expense and stealing hard working webmasters' commissions. You can learn about it at

Default what about kAzAz lite?

I was told that if you want the kAzAa software without all of that spyware crap you can try KAzaa LIte . The link starts at the agreement page, just accept agreement and see what you think.

Kazaa Lite does indeed avoid the spyware. However, the current Kazaa Lite version is 2.0.0. The current Kazaa version is 2.0.2. Consiquently, you will see an "upgrade" window everytime you start "Kazaa Lite". I've been trying to figure out how to disable the "upgrade" button without success.

However, since Morpheus and Kazaa are on separate networks, that doesn't resolve the Morpheus problem. Currently I'm using Shareaza and Kazaa Lite so I can share on both networks. But I'm not very happy with the search results from Shareaza, and I've been looking for alternatives.

Default try iMesh with a little Ad-aware

iMesh seems to be the better file sharing program I've used, it always finds whatever Im looking for from MP3's to full working programs. Although it says plain and clear on the site (or so it did) that it does not support spyware, that is wrong. I found plenty of spywear on my XP machine but manage to remove them with Ad-aware and manually. Once that is all gone, iMesh works great.
