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.

Default Ummm...

I've only had ONE run-in with a virus, and that was years ago when I stupidly used some school computer to work on a little qbasic project and got my floppy disk infected with Empire.Monkey.B (and, subsequently, my computer.)

I download things off the internet from trusted sites, I keep my virus defs up to date and occasionally scan my system, but don't leave any active scanning crap running. I have no firewall, and I never have any problems.

Just because soemone portscans your system LOOKING for trojans, doesn't mean you're infected. They are either 1) scanning entire IP ranges which you happen to be a part, or 2) using a modified gnutella client to harvest IP's to target.

Hi seeker!

I cannot agree...

Without a fw in the internet is like flying without a plane!

Especially for worm and trojans, a good protection...

No active scanning no fw???

You have to scan your system almost daily and search for trojans!

You never had any problems?!?

It was just luck - i hope you have no important dates one your HD...

Talking virus / firewall

I've been on the internet since 1996 and in that entire time I have been hit by a virus of some kind or another only 3-5 times. And as far as I know my computer was hacked into only around two times, but that was before I started running a firewall. I highly suggest that you run a virus background scanner AND a firewall (Not blackice though, yuck!). You need this type of protection even more on a connection like cable, dsl, or any that are always on. If you're using a modem, you're not as badly targeted and probably could get by with just a manual virus scan on occasion. Whether you run virus-firewall software or not, you should ALWAYS keep your operating system as up to date as possible!

Anyway, that's just my two cents.

My humble opinion on Virus:

If you download files any where from the Internet especially from a file sharing program it is ESENTIAL to have a Virus program and to keep the virus signatures up to date. Also a Firewall program is equally ESENTIAL.

I use ZoneAlarm a free firewall program which works superb for me. It can be obtained at "http://www.zonelabs.com/index.html"

I use InoculateIT an excellent virus program which is no longer free but works well and does not interfere with other programs as readily as McAufee. It can be set to virus scan downloads automatically. It caught a Virus file for me and cleaned it and deleted it. In any event it is a MUST to also Virus Scan any file after you download and before you open it.
InoculateIT can be obtained at: "http://antivirus.cai.com/"

Anyone who does not use a Virus and Firewall program and downloads files is at GREAT RISK.

I too have only had one virus experience like the seeker and it too dealt with using a shared computer at a school.

I also believe in using a a good virus scanner with auto protect enabled (I run Norton 2000).

I ran a firewall for about a week, but i didnt like the way it worked, so i burned it...er, uninstalled it. If anyone knows of a good firewall that is easy to set up, let me know.

Default firewall

Easy, free, good firewall here:

I don't suggest you use ZoneAlarm, it's not a very well made firewall IMHO.

P2P filesharing + No Firewall + No Antivirus = Sure Problem.

Even if you're not running a P2P client: If you're dloading and you ain't got no antivirus, you're asking for troubles.

Bottom Line: Kaspersky AVP Platinum... never leave home without it!!

PS: Just yesterday this baby caught a virus in a progiie I was dloding from a well known cracks source... it was infected with the I.WORM.MAGISTR, no less!



Have Phun.

Default same here

Just found a virus in a Keygen for MP3 CD-Maker. Why a warez site would knowingly do this and scare off people that are on their side, makes no sense.
