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 Viruses

Hi. Being new to the whole P2P thing I must say I'm shocked at how many losers out there are planting viruses on the network. Is there no quality control to help police this activity? My PC is bullet-proof but I'm sure there are many out there who fall victim to these a$$-holes.

I guess as long as there are guys with tiny willies and no girlfriends trying to compensate for their $exual frustrations we will have to remain vigilant. I suppose they think "Hey, I'll never get laid so I may as well try to cause damage to unsuspecting people's PCs. Wow, that will make me feel like a man."

I guess you take your chances when you engage in P2P file sharing so probably nothing can be done.

Other than that, life is great.

(p.s. - before anyone tries to correct me.... the plural for virus is viruses, not "virii". "Virii" is not a word. I used to think it was, it's not.)

As far as viruses go people really should look at the file size. When downloading a program or a game of any type the file size should always be within the Megabytes area and not the Kilobytes. Also it would be a good idea for anyone to actually get a program called Ewido Anti-Malware.

Its with no payments and absolutely free. As far as the upgrade goes (which has an actual payment on it) all you get is resident shield that protects you when surfing the net from force dowloads off of websites (spyware in other words) and an automatic update, but hey I don't need that and I have to say that if I don't need it then you guy's won't either.

Also, its a good idea to download any program or game as a zip file so that you can scan it with Ewido. All you do is right click an icon and an option should come up that says "Scan with Ewido Anti-Malware."

I hope that helps a lot of people out and would appreciate it if someone would do this and give me some positive feedback.

Interesting reading, LOTR. I had no idea. Thank you. These companies seem legitimate and offer valid services. My only question is this: Is it not illegal to knowingly proliferate computer viruses? I know that there are people currently serving time in prison for doing so.

Well it is illegal no doubt about it, but the problem about finding these guy's is the real issue here. When a person uploads a virus to a computer they typically do it in a safe fashion where no one knows where they are.

That's apparently why hackers exist to this day. Very few hackers are caught because few ever leave a trail. Over one million American computers a day are infected with force downloads, trojans, viruses and other illegal software used to erase, freeze or otherwise delete important files. Now this is in America alone. Because its illegal I think we would have much more hackers in prison than there are criminals, like molesters, rapists, murderers and psychopaths.

So like I said before, finding these guys is the real problem, because if they could be found, the prisons would be full of these nerds and geeks rather than these hardcore gang criminals and murderers
