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 VIRUSes

HI I found out why i can't burn CDs- because my computer is riddled with disease.

It has so many viruses it needs to be completely rebuilt.

Apparently, the music industry deliberately infects lime and kazaa with viruses.
The computer technician has told me it is not worthwhile to keep using lime or kazaa because the computer will continue to be ruined from the viruses.

What do you guys say about this? is it pointless to keep using Lime. Or can you guys tell me how i can use it without constantly breaking my machine? I love this , what can i do

You're obviously using windows right? I'm surprised you haven't properly safeguarded yourself. That includes anti-virus apps to scan all incoming files, possibly a firewall (in fact after this it might be wise!), & spyware checkers. Here's some suggestions: Try using:
-ad-ware http://www.lavasoftusa.com/software/adaware/
-Spybot - Search & Destroy 1.3 http://www.safer-networking.org/en/mirrors/index.html
-Spy Sweeper http://www.webroot.com/wb/downloads/index.php And a decent anti-virus software. There's lots around & even some are free. Some of the win people may suggest some others.

Which OS version are you using?

I use a mac, but I've been 'too scared' to connect to the net for my win2k that I can run using virtual pc on my mac. That'd mean loading the win system up with safeguards & detectors. It's a fact of life nowadays to protect yourself when accessing the net on windows. Be it p2p or just visiting a site or email attachments etc.

Default Brand new Computer future

I had adaware and spybot- they worked ok though i still ended up with tons of ware on my computer

I had Norton but I found the instructions complicated and i couldnt get it to work right. It found at risk files but wouldnt delete them when I told it to.


Yes I use windows. though i dont want to i hate the idea of being "monitered" though thats probably paranoia

What does windows do anyway?

What is an OS?
I'm getting everything new- (except my computer which is a dell)

So please tell me everything, including the "OS" and replacement for Windows that I should get to keep under the radar, and hard to acess by ad/ spyware
and viruses


thanks

Unless I'm mistaken, Norton av should be on a startup disk. So you can run that before you install it.

Also, be aware that getting virii form LW, heck any P2P application out there, can be prevented by a little prudence. What you dld matters. Learn to avoid (if you can) stuff like .exe and .zip files and it is best to first scan (with an antivirus) any of these type of files before opening them if your antivirus software doesn't have an auto-protect feature.

Also, I think that your helper is wrong. As far as I'm concerned, I've encountered only one virus through LW (and one might say that I was sort of trying hard to get one) and Norton didn't eliminate it, but put the file in Quarantine and eliminated it later. No prob.

Know also that you can't get virus from music and video files.

That's very, very wrong. First of all, it can prevent you from virii if you have the latest definitions. Besides, if you happen to have a virus, it can detect and clean the infected files.

Red face viruses

Ok the computer guy gave me "NOrton" which I didnt want but here it is,

Can I get another antivirus in addition ?

The computer tech says the moment I do that my system will break, but Im beginning to think he is "over cautious"

Stupid Idtiot, can you email me about the Zone stuff, because the forum wont let me reach you (Or mabye i cant figure out how to email you because I am the genuine idiot in the room)
