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 Cabos and Acqlite - where to download from + hostiles updater

Can't find where to download Cabos or Acqlite from? . Yes, Cabos installer was removed from sourceforge several years ago.
Edit: A revised Cabos sourceforge option has been created. Cabos can be downloaded from here. Before downloading either Cabos or Acqlite, please see notes further down in regards to both programs and their requirements and limitations when attempting to run on later Mac OS systems.

Here's some 3rd party host-site alternatives: Cabos here for Windows, or here for MacOSX. . Acqlite (MacOSX only): at SourceForge, or 3rd party host-sites: here.
Both Cabos and Acqlite can also be found on GD here. (Recommended to select the List View icon so you can see the non-abbreviated titles. Sample image here.)

With the present Cabos and Acqlite ConnectionFix installers is an option to update the Hostiles file that's installed with the program. I am presuming the Hostiles file has not been updated since 2009 (or possibly since 2008.) You can either choose to install only the connection file or only update the Hostiles or install both. Cabos/Acqlite first needs to have been installed. This Hostiles has been re-formatted into CIDR which reduces file-size to two-thirds of the original.

You might need Administrator permissions to install the Hostiles update due to this file being installed into the Cabos/Acqlite program folder within the Applications folder.
Note: MacOSX users only: If you have permission problems installing the Hostiles update, then try moving the program (OSX version Cabos or Acqlite) somewhere else such as the desktop and update the program there. Then move the program back to the Applications folder.

Perhaps surprisingly, considering the period since 2009/2008 there's only around 250 additions to the hostiles out of the almost 418,000 total listings. This is due to two main reasons other than using a very minimalist approach: (i) This Hostiles version originally customised by heavy-babe already blocked the majority of hosts intended to add. (ii) The only Spam-hosts added from over 6 months ago were those sighted 6 to 12+ months after first sighting. Other hosts blocked include download or browse BOTs which can be highly menacing and persistent.
It is not possible to block out all spam with the Hostiles, but it definitely helps block out a large percentage of spam-BOTs.

* Important note for MacOSX users: Cabos for OSX is a 32-bit only app and does not work under OSX 10.11 or later (and I've personally been unable to use it since OSX 10.4/5.) Use Acqlite instead. Acqlite is a smoother and neater looking program and has a couple of extra tools. The open source Acqlite was originally designed as a cross between Cabos and the commercially sold Acquisition.

* It has come to my attention Acqlite (Mac OS only) suffers same issue as LimeWire and requires Java 1.6 (also referred to as Java 6) to run. ~ June 2022. Whilst Java 1.6 can be sourced here, you will probably find you need to update the version again after installing. If this specific installer is incompatible with your mac os, then search the mac downloads for java 1.6 (java 6.) We apologise for inconveniences in this regard.

Cabos on MacOSX is 32-bit only and is broken: Cabos and Acqlite - where to download from + hostiles updater-cabos-osx-broken.png
