Freezing the Wate account is too little too late. Until Mr. Braun has been completely removed from the Admin staff (which will probably only happen when he dies of constipation) I won't be back.

Front page update @ Predictor:
05/14/07

Due to recent attacks on the Predictor@Home forums by a small group of malicious hackers we have enabled some restrictions in the forums. We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause our volunteers. As so often is the case a few bad apples can spoil the lot and their behavior has forced us to enforce policies we would prefer not to. The accounts used by the attackers have been deleted. Despite these issues, which we will weather, we continue to value your efforts and the resources you volunteer toward the scientific objectives of the Predictor@Home project.

Thank you.


I have no words to comment upon this statement... :O

Regards
One of the "malicious hackers"...

I voted with my cycles a long long time ago, when dlb first raised his true dictatorial/facist attitude.

Live long and BOINC.

Instead of just stopping crunching why don't people do what I did.

I asked DLB to delete my account in an open thread.

He VERY promptly obliged.

Yes I lost all my computers previously earned credits - but as a matter of principle it's been worth it.

I would ask him to delete my account if I could...
A 0 RAC isn't enough to post on their message boards... :x

I found a simple solution is to create a team called "banned for life" again. guaranteed any accounts inside the team will be banned in under 24hrs. I didn't need to say anything it was promptly deleted about an hour after i created it. i was glad to be rid of my account.

Are you banned ?


Do you want to get banned for 31 years, your account and credits deleted at a Boinc project ? Predictor@home is your best choice.

Folks might be interested in this thread, in spite of all the bickering going on there. They're putting together some sort of organized protest against Predictor.
