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.

Smile New Feature - Block IPs in the Monitor Incoming Searches

I'm a very active user of Gnutella using Limewire and Shareaza

I see a lot of suspicious searches in my monitor,
They search all day the same words
with things like bills, payments, and other personal information.
Looks like a spider or program doing automatic searches on the nodes.

Will be very nice to add a feature to block the IPs of this searches
that are running all the day and night!

In Lime Wire this feature could be added in
Monitor -> Show Incoming searches panel
This panel only shows the word in the search
and will be nice to have the IP as well,
with some option like the right click to BLOCK the Host

This way we can stop this dummy searches that overloads the computers
of everyone using Limewire and other softwares.

I'm sure that this feature will be very usefull for thousands of people.

More automated feature:
A parameter can be added to limit the # of searches / hour / host
For example if a host make a search every minute during 1 hour.
Block it automatically.

adov, I find that blocking IPs in general is relatively useless. Those kinds of hosts will change to random IPs, and there is always a possibility that when the IP is later claimed by a normal user, they can be cut off from accessing Limewire. (It's happened to me in a chat room once, kinda strange to be G-lined when I'm an oper, but oh well.)

I like the automated idea, to temporarily block those IPs putting out results in every search. I even better like the ability for the user to prevent certain keywords from appearing in your search; for instance, I keep getting 60 spam results every time I try to get results, and they all say "sexy girl has shaking orgasm during sex" as part of the name. For instance, if you search "Jeff Stiles" (random name), you'll get "Jeff Stiles sexy girl has shaking orgasm during sex" as about 60 search results. Try searching for more (nice feature, mind), and you get 60 more, a few other spams, and nothing by Jeff Stiles at all as a followup search.

Can someone please add a way to BAN certain keywords from results, or completely prevent such results from coming up? No matter how many times it tries, I'll never download "sexy girl has shaking orgasm during sex" as I've got more important things to look for. I just don't want those results showing up on my screen for family reasons.

I've learned to limit my searches to audio, so that cuts out a lot of the "bad" results. I just want to kill those last few.

That's a nice suggestion, so I'll give it a shot.

Talking controvertial response??

i want to say my opinion on this.

puritans may not like it, but I say, fight fire with fire, "dilute the pool".

how many times you downloaded a movie, only to find out it is really something nasty instead? or a song you wanted is really some spam advert? we all been caught at least once!

so, make a note of those files they are looking for, [such and such's] password list, my [some bank] credit card numbers, or worse, etc, etc and prepare some useless lists of your own, such as all of microsoft's IP addresses or just a load of garbage (same thing?) then save your lists as .txt files and .doc files and SHARE THEM. Do the same with a few more dangerous titles, such as porn or worse, but for movie files, download some police recruitment videos and for pictures make up some dangerous message with an official looking police or government logo "STOP, YOUR IP ADDRESS HAS BEEN LOGGED, PLEASE REMAIN WHERE YOU ARE, LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS ARE ON THEIR WAY"

Pollute the file pool for these miscreant hackers and porno peddlers, in the same way they pollute ours. Also, look at your stats and see what the world REALLY does with P2P. You will see these dummy files will be the most popular by far.

If enough people did this, it might make a small difference, maybe those nasty ppl would go away, and P2P would become a purer, better thing.

Of course, the problem of this form of hacking wouldn't be there if people weren't stupid enough in the first place to a) write all their passwords/credit card numbers/etc in a file on their hard disk and b) even more stupid to share it. Limewire (bless) have tried to redress this a little, making it ever so slightly harder to share YOUR ENTIRE HARD DISK, but given that most ppl I know can't read pop up messages, and have no idea what folders are, it is still too easy to share all that private data.

Anyways, if in doubt, blame apple for "inventing" the mouse, and blame microsoft, for giving people the illusion that computers are oh-so-friendly-and-easy-to-use, and for leaving so many hooks inside their OS so that other people can access our info. Did you know many European Intelligence Agencies refuse to use networked Microsoft product because they say it is akin to having all their meetings and filing cabinets in CIA headquarters ?

Need to find out from File_Girl. She doesn't visit the forum that often these days. Last time in December I think.

I'd request an auto-block of port 7001. These seem to be the most common bots programmed to fill people's upload slots. The ones I'm aware of are on the Hostiles list.

Are you using the Hostiles Security blocklist? (This version only works with LW 4 or 5/LPE.)

As we know, the last two numbers of the user ID is 'usually' the last two numbers of their ip address. I found 3 with that last series of numbers in the hostiles.

Are you using LPE or LW 5.3.6? I think with 5.3.6 you 'might' be able to right-click the host that's uploading & get information on that host. The ip address for transfers was dropped from this window either in 5.3 or 5.4 or 5.5. (They said they dropped it for privacy reasons of the hosts. Not forgetting they were under court pressure & made some changes they did not wish to over a couple of years.)

AFAIK the console log only logs the present session. And only logs what you ask it to log. You can save the log at end of a session or a time period, but need to do that manually.

BTW even in the non-Japanese blocklist, that ip range is blocked because it was so full of bad hosts. AaronWalkhouse had this range blocked by 12 June 2011, even before I adopted the Hostiles to keep up to date. ie: or in the original notation. If you don't wish to use the Security Hostiles blocklist, then you can simply add to your ip filter.
I remember I always had issues with hosts in the 220.x.x.x range a few years back & used to manually block them. The majority of the trouble-some ones were usually from Japan, USA or Australia. That specific ip range 220.150. is Japanese. Japan uses about 108-109 out of 255 possible 2nd tier ranges in the 220.x. range. Some are static, some dynamic.
