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.

Here is the response I got from Syd078 in regards to
the DSL Reports Thread.


I think I was just sent the letter to be aware that the Movie Picture
Association was on thier *** about it. All I had was one unaired episode of
Buffy the Vampire Slayer and that is what the MPA was upset about. Because
someone downloaded it from me. However, a whole bunch of other people have
it on LimeWire. I will look around and see if I have the letter still. All
it said was something along the lines that the MPA had discovered that I had
a copyrighted episode of the Unaired Episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and
that my service was discontinued. But that letter came in the mail 2 days
after my service was cut off. It was only off for a few hours because I
called Oceanic Cable to find out why I had my service shut-off. I never
entended to share the file, I just downloaded it to put on a CDR to watchon
my computer. But at the same time I downloaded it, someone else downloaded
the file from me as I was finishing it. I have no idea why the MPA went
after me, because I dont have the time, the money or the energy, let alone
the need, to distribute any files.

Default Syd078 Letter

Perhaps the ISP was contacted by a firm that tracks P2P sharing of copyrighted files.

One such outfit is listed below.

sydney078 just emailed me what you wrote in response to
what you wrote here.

Hello to all-

My name is Adam Fisk, and I am a software engineer from LimeWire. I was made aware of this thread by one of our users who posted on our user forum at:

www.gnutellaforums.com

As anyone familiar with LimeWire and its goals already realizes, "sydney078"'s allegations are completely untrue and unfounded.

We at LimeWire would never consider collecting any information about our users. It has nothing to do with our revenue model, and we feel strongly that the privacy of our users should be protected. That said, we do not even have the cabability built into our software to collect any information from our users, as this had nothing to do with our original goals.

LimeWire is an information sharing tool. We are working to make the Gnutella network a more generalized network that can be used for more robust searching and sharing of all types of information than any other network currently available. We have absolutely no interest in colluding with "undercover people" from the "MPA" to catch all you naughty little file sharers out there.

I suggest that anyone with more interest in the general subject of peer-to-peer networks check out some of the information on our web site at www.limewire.com.

This is what Sydney078 emailed me in response:

" LimeWire can kiss my ***. They are full of BS- call Oceanic and ask for a guy name Kit ad you can ask him yourself about LimeWire and how the MPA was
able to get my IP number. LimeWire can say all they want, but I know the truth. I am going to look around to see if I still have the letter. But, in the mean time, call Oceanic yourself. "

The person Syd078 referring is Kit Beuret Public Relations
person at Oceanic Cable www.oceanic.com. His email
address is kbeuret@oceanic.com

Aloha Mr. Fisk,
I apologize for bringing this up, I am just trying to
search for the truth about this situation, especially since I am on the same ISP as "sydney078." Sydney078@aol.comI have emailed Mr. Kit Beuret of Oceanic Cable kbeuret@oceanic.com also in regards to this. This what I wrote to him

Aloha,
I know you probably cannot comment on this, but I am going to try to give a crack on asking you about this. First you should read the thread at DSL Reports www.dslreports.com
http://www.dslreports.com/forum/remark,1066564;root=poll,swapping;mode=flat;start=0

Firstly this person "sydney078 " Sydney078@aol.com
had his service cut off because he inadvertatedly shared a
unaired Buffy The Vampire Slayer episode on Limewire.
He called up Oceanic and got his service re-instated. The
reason he got from Oceanic was, that they were not going
to discontinue his service because they knew he was not using
the service to sell what I download.

Apparantly MPAA got a hold of sydney078 IP address and
forwarded it to Oceanic because he (inadvertedly) shared that
copyrighted episode mentioned above. He was also told by
Oceanic that there are undercover people working with Limewire
to help catch people downloading anything copyrighted, tradmarked
and such.

Here is the response from Limewire software engineer Adam Fisk
in regards to what "sydney078" said.

I sent this to "sydney078" and this what he/she sent me in response.

" LimeWire can kiss my ***. They are full of BS- call Oceanic and ask for a
guy name Kit ad you can ask him yourself about LimeWire and how the MPA was
able to get my IP number. LimeWire can say all they want, but I know the

Anyway your help in this matter Mr. Beuret is greatly appreciated.


Aloha,
Aaron


Hopefully we can get some resolution about this and move on.

Just to alert you that poster Sydney078 is well known as a chronic stretcher of the truth around dslreports. Specifically two parties have complained to the Department of the Army IG asking that DOA investigate the person posting this nick for posting defaming statements copncerning the Army and her Commanding Officer in a dslreports private members forum (stars) concerning the alleged murder of her Co's wife by his brother and other relatives!!

All one has to do is muck through her latest posts in the dslreports public forum to evaluate the honesty and maturity of this person.

Fisk has the right posture. Respond to her and avoid getting tangled in her dementia.
