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.

Default Can't we ban porn on LimeWire?

Even though I have filtered Porn, it still manages to work its way in to my search results of something. Why is it on Lime Wire Pro? Can some one tell me how to stop this from happening?
Thanks alot

As long as there are people sharing porn you will keep receiving queryhits for porn. However you won't find much porn, if you are searching for audio files, for example.

Cool

Hello!

It is not possible to filter out porn completely and the reason is that the persons/company's that do distribute these porn files also include some meta tag information filled with words and names that has nothing to do with porn at all just so that you will get them in your search result list when searching for music etc.Also another trick that they use is to take advantage of celebritys name's in the file names so that when you search for music for instance Edit or Edit you will ge a lot of porn files in the search result list.

One way to almost get around this is to use the Audio only search feature in LW and search for music but I have personally tryed it and have notice that it inhibits me and that I get less results for the stuff I was actually looking for so I no longer uses that option insted I always use the Any Type option and get much better search results and just live with the fact that I will get some porn in the results but I just ignore them.

Why would limewire stop allowing porn to be shared? Porn is the leading industry on the internet, meaning a LOT of people want to look at it. If you don't want to look at porn don't download it.

I can understand not wanting kids to see porn names listed, especially hard-core or deviant stuff. However, I would be more concerned with the new trend of acceptance towards pirating music, software, and movies.

most of the porn available on gnut is pirated, anyways... lol.
copied img sets, ripped prON CDs and so forth..

ah well, "piracy"... imho that's what all p2p networks are about.
it's digital anarchy, and all the happy messages about "freedom of information'" say just that- but in euphemistic terms.

i'll never get why people come to the boards and get all "concerned" about the so-called "piracy".
makes me wonder why those people are on the gnu-net, anyways.
it's kinda like going to a porn video store and complaining about the nudity on display

Thank you for all of your replies, I can see where you all are coming from and I understand what you are saying because it makes perfect sense. I have children and do not like to see the result of porn coming up but I think I'll have to deal with it, and monitor them while searching! Also though, when we download files, and delete them and delete them again in the recycle bin, they won't be stored any where else on my computer will they? Like there is no back up back up storage?!

Thanks alot
Jermaine

No, BUT, if you've watched these files, there might still be traces of the file names in whatever you watched them in, like under the "File" menu in Media Player, or even under your "Recent Documents" menu on the Start Menu. The files won't be there, but you still may be able to read the names.

Default "Back Up"

Ummm. From my brother's experience with his computer, the files are sometimes still recoverable, even though you put them in the recycle bin. This is because, I think, windows will not remove the information from your drive, rather it will just not recognize it, and will if needed overwrite it. If you want to really make them go away, try something like internet eraser. Of course with the technology the government has, they still might be able to figure out what you are so worried about, which if it is some of the sick stuff that shows up on some searches (i.e. kiddie porn), then you should be worried.
