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.

Hi WW

You said, quite rightly:
Quote:
The computer system is for work only not a toy for the employees to play with and they are told such when they get hired.
But I did say:
Quote:
those same sniffers can capture employees private data as well, such as a confidential private emails, credit card numbers (used when shopping during lunch time) and or various online account details
So unless you specifically ban online shopping, which would be considered unreasonable and not using the system as a toy, then using your "sniffer" to gather data other than to protect your network may be problematic.

However, if extra unintended confidential data is collected then timely deletion of that data should free you of any obligation.

My employees have no right to have any personal data on the companies computer system nor are they allowed to utilize the system for other than strict company business.
One X employee, who I fired for the unauthorized usage of the system (He was downloading porn instead of doing his work) took me to the local labor board....
Not only did the labor board uphold my fireing him for this infraction but he had to pay all costs regarding the investigation by the labor board.....his name was also forwarded to the local RCMP for investigation in/as he had downloaded numerous kiddie porn and photos....

Hi WW

It's obvious that your ex-employee is a pervert and somehow believed that he had a right to use your resources to indulge his perversity. Getting rid of someone like that from your employ is not only your right but also your duty.

All the best for the future.

If you think some security suite will protect you against images of childporn, then are sadly mistaken.

How does Kaspersky prevent the downloading of requested files? We're not talking about virii here.

Meanwhile (Aug. 14):
KINGSPORT, Tenn. (AP) — Investigators say a former Kingsport police officer accessed child pornography over wireless networks belonging to neighbors, businesses and a church.
Richard Chandler is one of 72 people indicted in an investigation into an international child pornography network that prosecutors say used an online bulletin board called Dreamboard to access thousands of images and videos of sexually abused children.
The federal search warrant alleges Chandler made 117 posts to the site, including twice when he was on duty.
According to court papers, members used screen names rather than actual names and accessed the bulletin board via proxy servers, with Internet traffic routed through other computers to disguise a user's location.

As an ex-cop busted for child porn, he should have a most interesting time in prison.

Sleepless & Blackhorse 70V

I am not sure what point "Ecky Thump" was trying to make but if you are both right in your interpretations then ET is a very raw and naive novice.

Without making any comments on the case concerning the cop, it shows that the authorities can trace IP addresses via proxy servers, over bulletin boards and anything else that can be used to hide or disguise a perpetrator's computer which is used for illegal activities.
