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.

That depends on how many gullible people believe what they read. Unfortunately allot of people believe it is written it is true.

If you look at history there have been wars started over rumors so I guess it depends on what you think is right and wrong. Myself I prefer truth.

Morb is flying high

Sometimes when I'm doing searches i find zip files for example that are 0.0kb with the exact same file name as the virus containing files. It's strikes me funny because the setup file was probably deleted within the archive file yet not deleted from their computer. Out of curiousity and bordom I downloaded it and there was nothing in the file, lol.

Default It's simple

Limewire has REFUSED to implement these features after years of requests from hundreds of users to allow File Size Filters and to unanimously Block/Flag Bogus Files and Users.

Kazaa and Gnutella used to have File Size Filters years ago. It's not rocket science. But it's becoming very clear that Limewire is in cahoots with these spammers and is profitting from spreading their spam.

If they would just take the high road and give Pro users these spam options, their sales would skyrocket. But no, it's evidently far more lucrative to spam us and leave innocent people vulnerable to viruses by denying us such filters.

Way to wallow in the slime.

Default it's not about sales

do some looking try

next do the math, LW is a either in looking to loose millions in possible legal run-arounds or they have a plan... I don't know what it might be but it sure as sh!t ain't selling software and ad space on it...

think about it... talk about putting "pete" on the choping block

ware do you from here... you have this potentenial technoligy - but you have the entertainment industry wanting to see you under a bus -- and who has the biggest influance on and can flex that muscle ... the entertainment biz...

it's like chewing your leg off before you got it stuck in the trap... and of course if the poop should hit the fan, your other companies even though legally they can't be touched, the court of public trust already has your space on the gallows row

so why... why is it here... why so much possible bigtime legal spotlight, I would just like to see the "Magnet Links" exist, think how cool it could have been if thier was a way to search engine the web for that

ok -- real guess only please... its can't just be so simple

You know I have used allot of different P2P software and Networks in my time. Every P2P network has 2 things in common #1 Spam #2 viruses some of the less popular file sharing nets have less than the more popular ones do the math. Fewer users = less crap. More users = more crap.

It has nothing to do with money it is # of users. If I were a spammer or virus righter and I had half a brain I think I would attack the place that had the most potential targets.

Those type of statements show just how intelligent some people are. It is just like people say Norton sucks because it misses to many viruses. Yet I have found that all Anti Virus software misses viruses. The problem is Norton got to be #1 by being the best out there more features easier to use etc. So what happened well lets see once again #. If I wrote a virus I think I would try and right one that would disable the #1 Anti virus out there that way I could attack the largest # of Targets.

It seems that allot of people would rather believe that there are all these conspiracies going on out there rather than sit down and think something through intelligently. Oh well if you want to go through life thinking the world is out to destroy you go ahead. I myself will keep on moving forward on the path of life and deal with thing as they come. And I guarantee you I will not whine and cry because of a little spam or viruses on a file sharing network I will just use a little common sense and avoid them.

Keep up the good work LimeWire Developers you have made the fastest most efficient file sharing software out there by paying attention to what is important for the software. Not what a few people were whining and crying about because they did not have the intelligence to avoid the inevitable.
