JC #1 - Thumper Bumper ........ Whistle  for those who remember

indeed...that's the exact incident that came to mind when said person behind it started looking down his nose in that thread at carl about posting 130 times or something....his did about the same under the name thumper bumper, in probably a third of the time, and his posts mocking others were visible for all. Rolleyes  of course he's a CA, so he can do whatever he wants.

Yes I remember when some of the CA's were using alias at WCG or at teams forums in an attempt to intimate and control the masses.   Don't remember what the alias were but seems there were several of them.    Roll Eyes

John sorry you took personal stick over this  Embarrassed

Don't worry about that.  Those clowns p*ssed me off breaking into the thread like that and saying what they did.  Was completely uncalled for and felt someone should say something.
I've one job left that's nearly done so will let it finish.  Have aborted all the rest and detached the pcs.  In an hour or so will be leaving WCG to the slaphappy christian hypocrites and knuckle dragging cretins whose only connection to human beings are opposeable thumbs.  They should love each other and reproduce.

Like guru said, there's more to life than WCG.  For now, I've taken up SETI again.  It's innocuous but uses the pcs.  Thank heavens we have this forum.  Many thanks to Pinky for starting it and keeping it going. Thumbs Up

Do whatever you want....   Doesn't matter how dangerous it is, when it's your time to punch the final time clock, well? it's time. Doesn't matter what you're doing.

Quando Omni Flunkus Moritati

I'm done also, for the same reasons - I've had enough of the crap, I stayed away from the forums for the reason that the forum is not the project. For now I've had enough, who's to say in the future.......... I'll still Base Camp there because of the spirit and the teamies.
But this this the 3rd strike as far as I'm concerned. During the CA wars I did get warned about behavior unbecoming, from the WCG folks and some IBM contacts I have.
Going to keep running till I find a new project,  or I get a response from my concacts about this issue,but ATM [email protected] looks good to me, and I like running the bio stuff.
Let it be known I saw most of the war, and there were sins on both sides....... but WCG's handling of the issue was/is way off base.

After much hard work, [email protected] is ready for a vacation! We hope to finish all the workunits that are currently on our server or being crunched by volunteers over the next couple of weeks. After that, the project will go offline for a few months. We will be posting a progress report on this web site within a week or two. All participants will be notified by email. Meanwhile, many thanks to all of you for your help and participation!
