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.

Does it do any good to block the hosts that are carrying the 197.7 files and others like it or is it a waste of time. I've been doing that but it is time consuming since there are so many of them.

Nor do I.
It's just gotten that MOST of the time that's ALL I get on a search.
I was just wondering if it would help cut down on it some.

A combination of the Block lists and a file size filter would help a great deal I'm sure.

Here are some tips on how to bypass some of the spam

Well maybe the issue here is that the files in the result are near same file size and probably have many sources. LW filter seems to be very picking when there are lots of sources, thinking it could be spammers. Of course, there is room for improvements here, as the spam filter helps, but not too much.

Ciao

Why isn't there a "Hell yeah! This is what everyone's been waiting for!" option in the poll?

By the way, has a virus/spam file size thread been created yet? If not, I'd like to make one containing the file sizes of guaranteed junk files and their file type, such as the 197.7 KB Zip File, or the 134.4 KB Mp3 file. I think this may help a lot, especially if we do come out with a file size filter.

Default you people are pushing the size filter the worng way....

you people are pushing the size filter request the worng way.... iv'e explained already in other threads! (lordoftherings has warned also).... my explaination: yes i agree we need a file size filter. but not just any, it has to be a SPECIFIC size(s) filter....just like the way the "keryord" junk filter works... for example if you filter out the word "cat" and you'll never get any search results with the word cat..... MY POINT IS if we create a file size filter it must be a filter so we can add "specific file sizes... like lordofthering said in previous threads... "if we have a file size filter the spammer will adjust (workaround) to it and just make then bigger from 851.7 or 197.7 kb to "megabytes... or hundreds of megabytes..... also its not being fair to the network filtering out like let's say: size from____ to___ because then were missing out on a whole range of files we might want to look up in the near future.... like photos, pdf files.. or docments... my conclusion is we must be sensitive with this area of type of filter.... and if in the near future limewire does get creative and make a size filter... PLEAZE I only beg that it is not a size filter in range of from__ from to to__ any it be a "list" type like a keyword filter... EXAMPLE: filter out these specific file sizes....
851.7
197.7
....etc

and when you do a search result, there shouldnt be any of those files showing up.... (until riaa or sony hires some low life hacker to do thier dirty work and make a "workaround")
PS: there is always a workaround to a workaround.... LOL

PSS: there should also be an intelligent filter to auto-ignore results like B_L_U_E__C_A_T__R_I_S_I_N_G.wma from the real file "blue cat rising.wma"

There is add _ to yout keyword filter

And BTW if you had read the thread properly you would see that this is about three seperate filters

1. A filesize filter with ranges
2. An IP filter built in to Limewire
and 3. A HASH filter

They would find themselves in heaps of trouble coming up with many bad files if ALL of them were implemented into Limewire

And BTW the ability to search by exact phrase would also help as the bad results would not be triggered nearly as often

Default hmmmm???

.....and we ALL know that those "pretty" autogenerated spam search results servers or somputers are being "financed/maintained" by riaa/sony/mpaa .... but were not snitching... LOL

off topic; (have you also noticed that if you yahoo or google you get "spammed" results, harmless but annoying website "advertising" similar things you type in... and maybe now&then you get a lil pop up window (small rectangle) lol.... oh and try mis-typring a website lol you really get a surprise.... im just surprised there is no action there since we all know the gov/nt cant control what is in someone's computer (like p2p networks) but they can control whats on the net (like servers/ip)...hmm..?? new trend..... i guess the internet will soon get less users & be paralyzed in like 3 yrs..? who knows.... (the effect is happening to p2p networks (like discouraging users by auto-results spamming/viruses) now were getting auto results in searches in google or yahoo or any search engine))... i remember like last year if i typed in something that is a unique word.. in yahoo or google it woud say "search results 0" (empty) LOL now you can type in anything and get "thousands of websites" claiming results ranging from sales, information, to plain just anything...lol spammers these days...gotaa love em (hate em) (for screwing up the internet & undustry....) there pushing the internet to a point that if it doesnt come to a halt it will be controlled by the gov/nt just like in china.... lol spammers beware, you are only pushing you "hobbies" off a cliff...then you have nothing else better to do.... LOL.... id love to see your face right now....
let the war begin; real hackers VS riaa/mpaa/sony & thier auto-gen spammer servers & beautifil ip addresses that flip like pages... (heck that'd be a good project for you guys when you're bored)(getting rid of those auto-gens & tearing up thier systems heck you're NOT doing anything illegal! since your stopping them from thier illegal actions.... tell me if im wrong!!! because if im wrongg then people that spread viruses are doing something legal..LOL ) do it so limewire doesnt have to work sooooo hard to create a size filter... lol

opps im talking too much.... this post might get edited or deleted by the moderator...lol or i might get traced....lol (if i do then I know im right...lol)
