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.

While I agree with your stand on this subject, I also agree with lassie's point of view, dodgy moral crusades have a way of backfiring.

For example, you have shown in your post that your have downloaded an episode of "The Simpsons", which you know is illegal, yet the “so-called” KP files you have highlighted maybe fake files and, as such, not illegal.

You should think long and hard before you start publicising your “good cause” because, as I currently see it, you have just invited the MPAA to come knocking on your door.

There isn't any copyright certificate on that Simpsons episode anyway you can copy TV shows using a VCR, DVD recorder etc. etc. as long as you do not sell it is ok and anyway BOB isn't everything even music on here technically copywritten

It doesn’t matter if there is a copyright certificate or not on that particular episode of The Simpsons, this is a "copyright" product and you can be prosecuted and/or sued for taking part in downloading and distributing it.

And yes, you can copy TV programmes onto video and/or DVD as long as you do not distribute or sell them, i.e. the copies must be for your own use. However, you would get short shrift from any judge if you compared what you are doing with “recording from a TV”.

Though it can be said that many people do use the P2P network to distribute copyright material you will find that those that are caught by the RIAA or MPAA are heavily fined.

You, in your zealousness, have put your head above the water as one who readily takes part in cheating copyright holders out of their money and, quite frankly, you have no defence. Saying that “everyone is doing it” or “I didn’t know” will not help you if you get that “certain” letter in your mailbox or knock on your door and will certainly not help you in court.

Always remember, distributing copyright material, whether by P2P-ing, handing out videos or DVDs, without any recompense to the copyright owners, is illegal and you can be prosecuted for it.

Finally, there is more than enough legally distributed non-copyright material to keep many people, such as myself, very happy. I would suggest, for the future, you leave the copyrighted stuff alone.

Seems to me everything on here is pretty much copywritten with a few exceptions of personal pictures and some documents like text files etc. etc. I am not trying to defend myself Bob I still purchase music and movies and P2P programs have actually made me want to go out and buy more movies and music

All it takes for evil to flourish is for good men to do nothing.

ps.(bob, could you look one of these kids in the eyes and tell them you would rather argue copyright issues and simpsons episodes?)

As a father myself, there is no way I would argue for copyright over children’s safety.

But I'm with Lassie on not starting a "dodgy moral crusade" based on what could be mislabelled or fake files, and as a P2P user you know that there are plenty of those around.

By all means, where you find someone potentially distributing KP then report it, the authorities will act to catch these scumbags, but in the meantime don’t inadvertently set yourself up.
