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.

You are correct - it could be autogenerated, but without duplicating the keyword within the search result.

This is either some sort of network spam, or my version of LimeWire has a virus. Its odd that almost no one else is reporting this.

I am having the same problem. It started last night. No matter what search I do it brings up all these wmv porn things. I didn't know what was wrong so I deleted my Limewire program and downloaded and installed it again. But it still has the problem. There has to be something we can do.

Only A Hobo is a great assister to others; your light through the dark tunnel

4 or 5 hours ago I typed [name of artist]albw into the general search (usually I use the audio search) and got a pile of multi hosted mpeg(as I recall) files with no relation to my search whatsoever. there does seem to be some clever spamming going on

I have this exact same problem, and so does my partner (on a seperate computer in a seperate location).
Every video search brings up results with the following titles:

- smoking teenager sl*t getting (...)
- watch me f* my sl*tty teenager girlfriend (...)
- lusty 19 year old teenager (...)
- the c*mshot my teenager girlfriend never thought would (...)
- very s*xy teenager does ******l insertion (...)
- dorm room s*x with super hot coed teenager

The list goes on, but the results are always the same. There's about 20 separate filenames that keep coming up and they are always the same size (although this size may vary from serach to search)

I have been dealing with it by organizing search results by filesize, as the files are always too small to be any tYpe of genuine result. But I'd still like to know if there is a way to block them. They annoy me, and I don't feel like looking at "HOTTT HOTTT HOTT TEENAGERS BLAAAARGH!!!" every time I search for movies.

Filter them out then. Use your Keyword filters. For LW 4 or FrostWire, Go to LW's menu bar, Tools>Options>Filters>Keywords & add the words .wmv & .jpg & remember you can add or remove keyword filters anytime so long as you use the Apply button. Also tick the Ignore Adult Content. See sample image: Adding to your Keyword Filter (click on this blue link). This includes instructions for both LW 4 & 5.

If you're using LW 5, you'll find the keyword filter in a different place. LW's menu bar, Tools > Options > Search, OR (if using LW 5.3 or earlier) tools > options > security. . . Click on the 'Filter Keywords' button. Now add whatever keywords to the list & click ok. Can add extensions separately in that section. Once that page has closed, click ok on the larger options page as well. (See sample image for LW 5 in above link)

Any extensions you add to the LW 5 extension filter will also prevent you sharing files with such file extensions. Instead you can use the keyword filter with a dot in front of it, example: .wma

You might want to add a few more keywords such as slut, teenager, etc.

A full list of terms you can add to the filter to eradicate porn search results: click on Text attachment below called BANNED_WORDS. (This file will open up formatted properly in WordPad & TextEdit, do NOT open the text document in Notepad!!!)
(be wary of some of these words, they may clash with what you are searching for, so they can be added & removed as you need.)

The filter-words from the following page link have already been added to the text attachment below: Keywords worth adding to your Keyword Filter. These words include different types of spam: porn, advertisements, trojan-music/videos, etc.

Click attachment to download. Open with WordPad or TextEdit or a superior word processing program! (Reiterating, do not open the text document with Notepad! Notepad is too basic to read the formatting. A hopeless piece of programming by M$! lol) Banned Words updated 7 December 2010.
