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 ***Virus Searches and Downloads That Don't Work ***

I have very good up to date antivirus software, spy sweeper software, ad-aware software, bugdoctor software and registry mechanic software. So I would say I'm pretty well covered for all eventualities.

Yet, whenever I do a seach for a program, all I seem to keep getting is this bessed file size virus (851.7KB) displayed in the results list. I have tried doing the double click on 'size' tag as has been suggested by 'Lord Of The Rings' but it makes no difference.
On the odd occassion I have download a large program file, I then find out that it doen't work, which really makes me mad.

I have no problems with Mp3 files just programs.

Is there anything that can be done? otherwise there is not allot of point having this software if I can only download music files.

Spamming the forum now are we. Double-posting is not allowed on the forums.

Have you been using the Junk filter to filter them out? It's a learning filter not a set filter. It's dynamic. So you need to keep adding the spam to the filter so it eventually filters them all out. Virii are the most difficult to filter out ... it takes the longest. Whereas the ipod & clinton audio spam only takes about 2 searches to filter out completely. Don't forget there's also keyword filters. You can filter out extensions such as .ace, .exe or .wmv, etc.

You should also look at your search techniques. It sounds like all you're getting is spam because there are no results for what you're searching for or the terms you use to search aren't ideal to finding the target files. Vary your search criteria.

If you want those sponsored companies that spam the network win, well that's up to you. You don't have to use LW or any other p2p program/network. It's a problem with all p2p nowadays. Have you heard of Overpeer? Google it!

Hi Lord Of the Rings,
This is all still new to me. I have taken onboard what you have sudggested and added the file extentions to the filter list.

I'm still not sure what you mean about changing the way I seach for things. When I do a search for a program, I click on the 'Program' button and then in the drop down menu fill in the relevent boxes with the imformation required, then click 'Search'. This produces a list of what I am looking for but all with file size 815.7KB next to each item in the list, which I know is not right.

Well, I more often than not do Any Type searches as I find it tends to bring it a few more results or the odd ones a specific type search won't find. By varying the search I mean vary the title such as shortening it or using another name it might be used by, etc. I can't very well give examples for program due to forum rules about Warez. But perhaps Company name only or program only or both together. Or the area that it is used for such as graphics or video or audio or ... In those cases though I would probably use the specific program type search. From experience I can tell you that some people only come online to share maybe a couple of days a week or one week a month, etc. So try searching for the items at different times & days. There's also a chance nobody is sharing what you're after.
