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 Limewire Ip Blocker????

OK, SO i thought LImewire was suposed to have a IP address blocker? I just recieved a letter from my cable company telling me warner brothers could take legal action for downloading CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY" which is funny because i could never download it , it would always get to 97 % and stop. Any idea why this happened with a "ip blocker"???? is there a way to download movies now without getting traced? PLEASE HELP!!!!!

people who post here should read the forum rules before posting especially the dirty great red one at the top of the forum home page.

Anyway .. you can block certain ips contacting your share . You cannot block your ip from other users on the internet.

Default IP Address


You seem to have confused LWs IP filter with hiding your own IP address.

LWs IP filter prevents you from downloading from certain IP addresses, they are filtered out from your search. This facility is useful if you come across a P2P client uploading bogus or virus infested files, you put that client's IP address in your LW filter and LW, from then on, will ignore that client when you are searching.

However, when you upload or download your IP address is being broadcasted, that is how you were traced, e.g. your IP led back to your ISP and your ISP logs led back to you.

Finally, you cannot hide your IP address, that’s just how the internet works.

OK your reely not suposed to Dl movies but ....who gives an atomic fu*k....

you can block the MPAA from your pc with a cool little program called peerguardian, its compleatley free and i think it may keep any future problems like this from happening.(im not 100% shur if PG will work for that so please correct me if im wrong)

anyway for THIS problem...i think you may be screwed...if i were you id just deny anything.

the letter that WB sent u is most likley hot gas and they wont do anything. thyr trying to scare you. you might get a warning or like a 50$ fine or somethig if they are reely stupid about it. but i could be wrong...the thing at the front of movies dose say "up to 250,000 fine and 5 years in prison"

i wish you much luck (you may need it)

Are you sure about not being able to block your IP from being seen by others? I think that I read somewhere on here, but on a different topic, about being able to block your IP address from others. I don't really know that much about computers but shouldn't there be a way?! I read that Limewire is being sued by some major record labels for illegal downloading and that 2 other people were arrested because their IP address was traced by some "Bots??" or something like that. I was just wondering if there was some way hide it so that your not being traced.
