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 Password protected preferences for adult material

Please consider adding a password option to the adult material and/or search keywords preferences. Those of us with children or those who would just rather not be exposed to all the porn would appreciate it.

I too would find this very helpfull indeed.
I have small kids who are very tech literate(!)
I also run a small business, and would like to allow employees access to the gnutella network without being able to view porn.

I too would like this feature. I have an addiction to pornography, and am not able to have limewire etc as it is too much of a temptation.

How exactly do you tell that it is porn?

All of the netnanny software and the like block a lot of legitimate software and don't block all possible porn.

It is possible to block out keywords and particular types of files under options|filter - there's even an adult content filter that you just have to tick. It isn't, however, password protected.

precisely. I think he is asking for that checkbox to be password protected, if someone wants to uncheck it.

It's just a few lines in the source code, you'd have to change to set the adult filter to always on.

If you'd compile the source code yourself (it's less challenging, than it sounds) it wouldn't be a problem to do it.

I don't expect it to always be perfect - as MamiyaOtaru said I just want to be able to have that checkbox always on.

The last coding I did (apart from a smattering of HTML and Applescript) was in BBC BASIC - just how easy is it to mess with the code and recompile?

Well you will have to download a "JDK" (for free) from and you will need "ant" from

Download the complete source code from (you'll have to use a cvs client, further instructions on the homepage).

In the file core/limegroup/gnutella/ you have to edit line 39:
boolean filterAdult=settings.getFilterAdult();
boolean filterAdult=true;

Compile LimeWire and create the .jar files.

A password protection function to bann and prevent any porn material to be searched accessed or viewed by a certain user/users is a function that sure would be wanted for certain people but such a function is not possible and that is because of the curse of Meta information.A porn bann filter would just bann the most evident words such as porn,lolita,sex etc but the persons/companys that do distribute porn fill their files with meta tags and words that has nothing to do with porn att all even if you just perform a search on such a innocent word such as LimeWire you would still find some porn files in the results list.
