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.

Talking Another one saved.....sort of...

I'm glad to hear that you got things squared away kerjak. One can't put a price tag on their own pride(<--pronounced revenge ).
Hopefully myself and others here have been of good use, and feel free to mention this topic to anyone you know. The more widespread it becomes, the more these company's will collapse. Man I love the wonderful world of FREE** file sharing <raises roof>
**Venom's Dictionary defines it as such:
Not paying money for free programs just so that I have the reassurance that if said program doesn't work I can have a cheetoh's eating, couch sitting, game playing, music listening, customer service rep tell me I'm dumb! (Those are my jobs)

Peace out ya'll

Does anyone have a contact # for clickbank? I sent an email to them about a refund but would like to have a phone # as well. Also I reviewed to terms and conditions for didnt see anything about a 100% guarantee or anything so does that mean there is no way i can still get a refund even though its a scam?

Red face got a refund

Thank you everyone for your advice on getting a refund. The other thing I made sure to do was get a confirmation number and have them remove my e-mail from their servers. So glad you all were here!

Philsiu02 will become famous soon enough


My brother had just fallen for this scam and I thought there was no way these people should get away with it. As soon as I found out (which was luckily before any of their software had been downloaded and within about an hour of signing up) I called the company ( and told them I want to cancel. They asked why so I told them that they were misleading, implying that you could legally download music from their site which is just not the case. I also stated early on that I knew about the required "7 day cooling off" period and they were obliged to cancel the subscription.

Like other people they said that there would be a cancellation charge and staright away I questioned why. There is no way they should charge for processing fees. I mentioned that this was to be taked up with the credit card company and I expressed once again that I know exacty how peer-to-peer works and that I know that if my brother was to download a song by any well known artist he would be performing an illegal act (believe it or not they tried to persuade me that this was legal!).

Anyway, the whole phonecall lasted between 5 and 10 minutes (which couldn't cost too much on the phone bill) and I was told that a full refund will be given with no cancellation charge. I got a reference number and the credit card company has already been told that the charge will be disputed if it is not returned within the promised 8 - 10 business days.

I actually have several qualifications in law and computing and made sure they knew that I knew what I was talking about. I phoned on my borthers behalf so they couldn't fob him off with technical or legal jargon and it seemed to do the job.

My advice is to be quick and to the point. Be assertive but not to aggressive. Make sure that you make it clear that you know your rights and always go into the conversation with the intent of getting a full refund. If you have a friend who knows alot about computers then it may be worth getting them to call on your behalf too.

A charge for $44 appeared on my CC June 8 billed by for It was for download privileges for a year which I didn't order. I tried to access billing info at but it requested a password I didn't have. They referred me to the eMail they sent when I signed up but I never received an eMail. My CC company will credit my account so I'm OK but the point of this is how they got all my info. It's kind of interesting. On the date my CC was charged I was on the Limewire site and decided to upgrade to PRO. I filled in all the info and then changed my mind. I didn't submit the info, just closed the page. This info was somehow hijacked. This is the only thing I can figure out. Googling themusicsmembersarea reveals other posts about their being scammers. Some believe they are also using a copy of a Limewire program for their downloads.

Hope this helps somebody.
