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.

Thumbs down Really Shocking Adult material

I was searching for adult material and I was shocked to see that there are people out there with rape scenes and child porn.

Can Limewire administrators allow that kind of thing?
Surely these users should be blocked.

I didnt download any of those search results but just seeing them made me feel really seedy.

Any thoughts?

Default a somewhat informed opinion

It may be informed, but is only my opinion, with a bit of knowledge...there is no way to prevent such material from being downloaded, as this is peer to peer...I have found however, that the actual content, even if it describes "rape." or "incest," is in fact no such thing. Although still inappropriate to say the least, most of what you would see, is simply made to appear (and poorly) that it is what they describe. Now, it is a totally different matter if you were to download any of the "faces of death," I believe is is called, as they do have some really gross stuff, and most appears to be real, if not, in some of their clips, to be somewhat staged, if you pick it apart...My point I guess, is that even if it says rape, it is only for those who get off on that sort of thing, and unfortunatly there are many...but it is, for the most part, just acting...I am offended by it also. My "knowledge," comes from others such as people I know, who have had it downloaded...I've been permenantly corupted, in the mannor that if I see the word house, I automatically see "horse," as there are many animal vids that I was asked to view, and before I knew what was happening, got the shock of my life....oh, and learn.

I think the main problem is how people can get tricked into downloading something really wrong. I have unintentionally started to download a number of files that have turned out to be CP. It's bad that you can't be sure of what you are downloading!! - but what can you do, it has really worried me as I didn't want to see that let alone have it on my computer!

Default Fake Files

Dear p2pman

One of the unfortunate things about using P2P is the number of fake and mislabelled files that are about, and if you look long enough you will find mp3 files disguised as video files.

Plus, you have to watch out for viruses and spyware.

However, if you can navigate around and through the dangers you will find that using P2P can be most enjoyable.

I know you can navigate it if you are cautious, I unfortunately fell into the trap of getting lured into downloading unintended material. Do you think it is something to worry about? - i.e. am I gonna get busted for downloading these files even though I deleted them straigt away and never intended to recieve them in the first place?

Default Arrested?

Dear p2p man

You asked:

Am I gonna get busted for downloading these files even though I deleted them straight away and never intended to receive them in the first place?
First, I am not a lawyer and have no contact with the legal profession but I can give you my layman's opinion based on British law, having recently served on a jury.

Pornography is not illegal in the UK, except (quite rightly) KP and some other objectionable stuff, so you cannot be arrested for using or distributing such material.

Next, British law is based on intent, i.e. did you intentionally download this (theoretically) proscribed material. Since you deleted this stuff once it was downloaded then “intent” cannot be proved.

However, since (I believe) you live in the US and our laws are similar, unless you live in a state that has legislated against this sort of porn, then you should be OK.

Default Unintentional as well

I went into the filters and typed the word to filter out of my searches, like preteen and incest, but downloading adult files that are labeled wrong was a problem. Some files look like they could be underage. There gone off of my computer along with limewire, but i'm a little scared now. Just looking at adult content on the web you get linked to the wrong kind of sites sometimes, I always report them to the and let them try to get it off, but it's scary. Be carefull what you download, you never know whats out there.
