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.

limewire is flying high

Maybe everyone would be better off putting the word 'scam' at the end of any search they do involving use of their credit card(i.e. 'best music or films downloads scam', 'limewire scam', 'movie downloads scam'). This could be done for researching bogus email too. Hopefully someone will read this before it happens to them.

Thanks to this forum, I know that I was also scammed. I was scammed on 9/12/05. I got my money back (even though more than a month had past) by calling my bank. I had paid using a debit card. The telephone number listed on my transaction was 1-866-488-0790 and the transaction was identified by IP-P2PSUPPORT.NET. That is what the scam company was going by then. No telling what name they are using today and the phone number probably does not work. I never even tried it. I told my bank that this transaction was a fraud. I paid for something that was available for free. Also, as to how I found the scam site. I did a Google search looking for a new download site. I came across a site that does download site reviews. The first reviewed site with the highest rating is the one I checked out first. And it was the one I got scammed with. I am sure that the review site is a front for the scam site. The sad part is, more than likely, the bank will just write the loss off since it was only $22.46. So the scam site wins in the end.

I am not replying to anything except all the comments on Bitzi. I, too, have had it with all the jerks who supposedly share movies and when you do a check on Bitzi it is either another movie, mostly porn, or Trojans or other viruses. It is time, Limewire, that you find a way to check every single movie yourselves and delete all that junk if they are not what they are advertised as. I have been trying to download just one movie for two months and have not been able to get A SINGLE COPY THAT ISN'T SOMETHING ELSE OR A VIRUS. You are so irresponsible by allowing all the crap to be on your software and make us pay for it. Take some responsibility and look after your customers. There are probably thousands who share genuine, good movies, but there is always that element who destroy it for everyone. TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR SOFTWARE AND DELETE ALL THOSE PEOPLE WHO ARE NOT OBEYING THE RULES AND MAKING IT A MISERY FOR ALL THE PEOPLE DOING THE RIGHT THING.

not that I'm any big proponent of LW, but I must say your post smacks of complete ignorance...any sort of controls you desire would make LW, or any other filesharing app., illegal....if you want such guarantee of kwality then go to the store and buy the products....

So Long and Thanks for All the Files

Beware of the big 3 insurance companies in Texas! Read your policies carefully (maybe you'll need a lawyer) Allstate, Farmers & State Farm are overextended and their 'coverage' is worthless...a true waste of your money Read This

Remoc has a spectacular aura about

Perregrine, Not only have you revived an almost 4 yr. old Thread, but you obviously don't know anything about Limewire and the Gnutella Network.

Should probably Read up on P2P before making a fool of yourself.

Firstly, Limewire is a program that gives you the opportunity to connect to and use the Gnutella Network. LW has Absolutly Nothing to do with Files being shared. The Files are on Other peoples computers, hince the Term, Peer to Peer.

LW has No Central Server which means there are No files In LW, which also means they have No control over what is being shared on the Network.

If you are going to use such programs, it's Your Responsibility to Research and Learn what you are getting yourself into.

Talking about old threads, here's a post from one that explains 'something' about the little games that happen on the Gnutella network: Quality of Content on the Network
