Moderators

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.

Angry very angry mom

I was downloading a movie called the great raid and it was halfway done and I decided to preview it. To my surprise, it was definitely not the great raid. It was a full blown porno. And to add to my anger, my 5 year old son was sitting right there and saw it. I thought we were supposed to be protecting children from that? I didn't know how to explain 4 guys screwing a woman! And its happened with other movies also such as ice age, a childrens movie! What are people thinking? Is there anything that can be done to stop this?

Any Gnutella program has *NO* control over what's being shared on the network. Some are really changing names of files. What you can do to be sure you are downloading what you want is to right-click on the file (apple-click on Macs) go in advanced options->identify with Bitzi (something like that, I'm translating from French to English here). Users are tagging files on Bitzi so you know if it is legit and of good quality.

So, next time, beware as this is P2P. You have to know how to use the tools to be safe.

Bonne chance

well one thing you can do to help the 'cause' is to report the IP addy of the offender here: http://www.cphotline.org/

to really remove the file from your HDD, you will need an 'eraser' which will overwrite that sector of your disc with random data similar to a Department Of Defense (DOD) algorithm....Norton's SystemWorks will do this, along with plenty of other 'dedicated' erasers...

Default Attention

I have Norton Antivirus installed and I am downloading software or movies and time and time again the software is infected with a backdoor virus. Even if you try laplink it downloads a backdoor virus.

SO BE AWARE.

The LIMEWIRE servers are infested with these virii and all seem to be 197.7kb, 69.4kb and 851.7kb


The angry mom is right aswell that limewire is not being used for all the proper reasons of file sharing anymore.

I have even come across real child porn which is very disturbing just by doing keyword "edited". So watch out. I would suggest uninstalling limewire. As well as you accidently download the wrong thing then the Police come to your door and arrest you for downloading indecent material or illegal file sharing or mp3's breaking copyright. If all of you have noticed by now the IP address which is like edited CAN be traced by police and FBI.

This is the number appearing at the top of all file sharing done on any network.

So make a stand now and uninstall your copy and get them to sort their servers. EMULE has already had two Razorback servers closed down and the rest will follow soon.

You can not expect to have illegal filesharing continuing. The company whom owns limewire dont realise that they are next for the chopping board.


hey moron..actually that would be a compliment, as I'm sure you know what's really up...there are no LimeWire servers..end of discussion...all files are hosted by individuals spread across the whole planet, which makes it rather impossible to 'clean' things up...sure, go ahead and contact authorities about disgusting stuff...just make sure its actually illegal..and I of course support said reporting, as I have done so myself many times...and NO I am in no way affiliated with the company LimeWire LLC...I'm just an individual like others here (unpaid and most times unappreciated)...basically mr. dillhole, go shove a barbed broomstick lubed w/chunky peanut butter up your ****, cause you deserve it for making such an erroneous post...
