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.

Hi painter345 and . So what your saying is, by using this software, your LW library has been deleted?? Check your HDD to see if the files are still there. If not, I wouldn't recommend this program to anyone.
Sounds like a new tactic used by the MAFIAA.

Zapshare is owned by same person who operates Peermatrix & PeerSentry, yes those same programs that spam the network with junk files in your search results.

p2pnet news Blog Archive ZapShares, PeerMatrix, PeerSentry, anyone?

ZapShares or PeerMatrix, anyone? | Ares Download

p2pnet news Blog Archive ZapShares ‘revolutionary’ anti-lawsuits app (replies from Zapshare.)

Zapshare is an anti-file-sharing utility that is both adware & spyware combined. It also prevents your sharing of files. As can be seen from the 3 links above, most of what the company advertises at their site is either highly inaccurate or lies, combined with the propaganda of safe file sharing to grab your attention. They are obviously out to mislead you & everyone else.

Default ZapShares - works great for me!

The library files are there as always and everything functions just as promised...completed downloads are stopped from being shared...with ALL the programs I use...not just LimeWire but uTorrent as well...

The logic behind the program seems to be to automatically remove downloaded files from being shared...makes sense to me based on what I know...if the RIAA does a search and find you're not sharing files...they can't sue you and can kiss your a**...seems to work great!

One of my friends was one of the guys that the RIAA went after last year...he settled out of court but I saw first hand the hassle the guy had to go through...**** the movie industry/music industry and their lawsuits/harassment!

Personally, I'd rather not need a program like this, but thanks to the **** movie/music industry...I'm just glad someone thought of it...

How easily mislead some people are. Facts are facts, as noted in my previous post. A number of articles have been written & discussed about the company that owns Zapshares. If you were duped by this software's advertising, well that's your issue, but I would not recommend this software to other people.

And check Remoc's post above, this person's shares were deleted by ZapShare. What a nice little program it is (deleting your own files without your knowledge!)

I would suggest everyone stay as many miles away from it as possible. It is not to be trusted. Especially when the company that made it is directly/indirectly involved with sponsorship from the RIAA.

lol...I have a feeling that Remoc didn't read the software help file...that's the ONLY problem with the software I've found!

I was using an older version of the software which DISABLED the library (yes, this was mentioned in the help file and during the installation process), which is why Remoc must have thought his files were deleted. The files were still there but just not listed in the library.

HOWEVER, the new version I installed a few weeks ago works even better. The library function works perfectly as normal...the company says they've upgraded the protection while offering full library support...so all files are now listed in the library as usual...works perfectly just as promised...

I guess the company could be associated with the RIAA (they seem well funded...positive review on CNet's download.com ... and have even been mentioned in the Washington Post)...but who knows...

All I know is that I'm not taking any chances...call me greedy...I know I'm not sharing any files now that I'm running ZapShares, but I figure let someone else take the risks...1 ad for 1 download...I can download all I want...not have to worry...works for me...I'm a happy camper...and the RIAA/MPAA and kiss my a**!

So what your announcing to the masses is, your nothing but a Leech. Bad move D00d. It will only take the right person that knows your IP address and you'll be banned from where ever you get your files, unless your one of those that download from public trackers.

Your right!! I'm not stupid enough to use the program, so why would I waste my time reading about it.

Finally Avaay, Your not making much of a splash here on the forums, Letting members know that your a Leech and proud of it. Doesn't go over well with people that share.

You seem to be nothing more than a MAFIAA troll.

Good Luck and how is Canada this time of year?? LOL

ZapShares is a Canadian company. Oh what a coincidence avatar999 lol

Have you ever sought such assistance in that area yet?

The idea of P2P software is sharing.
Many P2P communities rate your sharing ratios, giving connective priority to those who DO share.
(Taking without sharing is typically viewed as “leaching”.)

A P2P user ALREADY HAS CONTROL of what is shared, without the advertising-subsidized, malware-assisted add-on service.
I haven’t seen too many P2P softwares that don’t offer this control. ...
Leech software. Interesting. Not to mention the lack of copyright file sharing of course. Reminds me a lot of The Story: Shareaza, iMesh, RIAA, and Recent Events.

No Trest. The FACT is that you are selling off people. Selling off these fake security apps to put your real focus, peersentry crap, onto people and f'**ing their communications.

With what we see in that patent filing, you are the same as an ID fraudster.

Ultimate parasite

What makes you think the file sharers in question – those concerned with getting “inadvertently” (as you say) nailed downloading the wrong file – would trust connecting to your networks, knowing you propose not only enabling the advertisers, but possibly serving up the users to groups like the RIAA.

You’re obviously a parasite.
Dare I say more. I think this about finishes this topic.

My apologies Remoc! Sorry about that! You're right...Painter345 was the one that didn't read the instructions...

As for being a leech...like I said, let someone else take the risks...look at it this way...people decades ago use to build bridges...and many lost their lives in accidents falling off the bridge during the construction...yet as soon as the bridge was built...and to this day...we still use those bridges...

So I'm letting someone else build the bridge for me (share the files) and just using the bridge (downloading)...no dif if you ask me...lol If others want to build the bridge and I want to use it...all the power to me I think!

Anyway, LOTR is right...I think there's been enough said about the topic! lol
