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.

Funny, when I dowload MP3s I also have to tolerate kidporn... what a strange idea. I guess someone is afraid of loosing his kidporn source. Downloading MP3 is legal in my country or philosphy (ist still buy CDs to support my favourite artists), but I won't support sexual abuse of children.
However I still wonder if trading kidporn is happening inside Gnutell or only a very little vanishing fraction.

Unbelievable. Even if MP3 downloading might me against the law. How can anyone compare this with kid porn?

It's like anyone who drove to fast with his car is also a murderer?

Well I found my solution:

I added a bunch of words into my limewire filters. That won't help against the problem of kidporn, but that will never be solved. BUT it helps me from getting those files and that's all I need until now.

Ps (OT):@moak
Funny that two german guys have to talk english to themselves. Siegmund Freud would be very interested...

Cant agree with that comparison too. There's a wide range between what's legal, what the music industry thinks is legal, and what is illegal according to 'normal' accepted social standards.

Kiddie porn is unacceptable by any standards (and by luck, I never had any accidental downloads).

@tomato, moak: not two, but three......(but even in the office I mostly speak english. This is normal business, and noth special for Sigmund anymore. Beside this it widens the range of listeners

Default Kiddie Porn

Heheh, ok, my two cents on this.

I'm Canadian, and I've been on the internet a *long* time. About three years ago, I was working in the R&D department of a large ISP in Calgary, Alberta - there was a guy I knew in another department, seemed pretty nice. He was just in the process of becoming one of our group of friends, when suddenly he was fired. I saw him once more after that, and then haven't heard about him - except in the newspaper - since.

What happened was this - he was running a tiny FTP server on his new ADSL connection, with an upload/download ratio set - in order to download, you first have to upload. You know the type, with a bot on IRC advertising in the #whatever-sex channels... He didn't set up his server properly, though, and after uploading a file, you could download from any section of his site, including the "uploads" area.

Well, he went away for a weekend, and when he returned, he found the police waiting for him at his apartment. He was read his rights and taken into custody - where he found out that he was being charged with distribution of child pornography. It turned out that while he was away, his FTP server had had a pile of pics uploaded - a police officer from Germany, of all places, had logged on later, found these pictures, and notified the Calgary Police - within a few hours, they had a warrant for his arrest, seized his computers, and were waiting for him.

He sounds innocent - right? Not really - you're responsible for what your computer offers for distribution, so the case went to court. I have no idea what happened in the case, but the fact remains - the newspapers got ahold of the story, and it was front-page news (as usual) that a child pornographer was busted. What's worse, he was 19 years old - when you're over 18, in Canada, they can release your name and photograph, which they put on the front page of the paper. He lost his job *instantly* - I shudder to think of what happened to him if he actually went to jail over this, he probably wouldn't survive.

Kiddie porn, in my opinion, is just intrinsically *wrong* - but there's still a part of me that will defend freedom of speech. Just don't forget how incredibly *dangerous* is is to have it!!!! It can literally destroy your life; I've seen it happen.

All you need to do is take note of the I.P. address.Then you can report it to the proper authorities.You don't have to verify it.They can do it and you won't have to have it on your hard drive ever.Anyone who would download something even named that way is sick and needs put away as far as I care.

Anyone who downloaded that stuff by mistake.Just deleting the files isn't enough if your hard drive is ever investigated.As we all know you can still recover it.Format your hard drive, burn it, run a big magnet over the ashes, have it degaussed.

Best bet is to not download anything if you don't think you can trust it.The icons indicate wheter it's a picture file,program, document, audio or video.So if your searching for a document and a bucnh of audio and video files come up you can eliminate those right away.Another thing to look out for are those "Lolita" files.
They're usually the bad ones.If Lolita ever comes up don't ever get them

You can also filter them out of your searches. Using your keyword filters you can add words like: .jpg, wmv, .exe or/& others to rid of the spam & other rubbish. You can also remove any of the filters at any time as it suits you. Ticking the ignore adult content option can also help. Where do you find these? For windows: Tools>Options>Filters>keywords & pressing Apply for immediate effect.

Is it possible for an outside user (user A) to hack into a computer
running P2P software such as Limewire (user B)? User B may be running the computer on an unsecured wireless network.

I know that there is a security flaw allowing user A to read user B's files...but what I need to know is whether user A can actually add files to user B's computer, or hack into user B's computer and cause it to appear as if user B was sending certain files, when in actuality it is user A making unauthorized use of user B's computer?

Thanks for any help

AFAIK the answer is no. Person A can only browse or downld files that are shared by person B & vice versa. There was a security issue that was fixed with LW version 4.8.1 so the only accessible files are those that are shared! Double-check your folders that are being shared (Tools>Options>Sharing)

But you should keep an active firewall, anti-virus program with up to date definitions, & the following programs (click green links):

ad-ware (FREE)

Spybot - Search & Destroy (FREE)

Peerguardian (FREE)

There has been a no. of viruses being found across the gnutella network, so check all files you're downlding.

I Share mp3’s and Movies and yes that is illegal but doing that verses trading kiddy porn
Is like jaywalking too murdering someone and you call that person lame for making that comparison. How often in the news do you here that “John Doe” was arrested for downloading music for his personal use. And do they make us music and music sharers register for public safety! If you had a cop standing behind you would you download Music or some kiddy porn.
