After many, many attempts at getting some communication from WCG  clarifying my membership none whatsoever has been forthcoming. Many emails were sent, along with attempts through the help contact. No mail or communication was attempted by WCG. Their staff have failed time and again to follow their own rules. I am neither banned nor able to use the forum. As Captain of the Teddies this is an intolerable situation.

If WCG wish to ban me at least let me know as in the Software Agreement and I would remove their software from my machines. It appears they wish to keep my machines, time, money and effort but not give me a voice. On the subject of what happened on the forum I quote David Autumns a respected member of the Community.

Quote
I must admit I'm miffed with so much to say this end and nowhere to say it.

I saw no reason why it should be shut down for the weekend unfortunately in the past we have had worse and saw our way through it. I'm sure we given the opportunity we could have worked through this one too.

But that said along with the deafening silence I say here's to the next 100 Million Results and the next 100,000 years

Without communication with the WCG staff to clarify my membership, I feel I am being taken for a fool and have no wish to continue working/paying for any type of project these people are involved with. I feel they have treated me with the utmost disrespect.

To my friends I say thankyou for the company these last 6 years, to those that I`ve argued with my opinion remains just that and no personal malice was intended. I realise there are people that would have found me loud and arrogant, it`s how I am both online and in life but if you were in trouble and needed help I`d be the first to your side. That is who I am, I am not a pretender, skin deep or profess something just to have someones backing. What you see is what you get.

Thankyou for everything over the years especially those I have come to respect and love.

I will still be around but Boinc has been removed, those that say nothing are often more hurtful than the most truthful pain.

Good luck in all your endeavours and may all of you be as lucky as me to have found more than one true friend as you travel this life alone.

 Thinking I too feel they over reacted with the closing of the forums..... I don't know exactly everything that was said, nor do I choose to be concerned with the conversation.

  It does tweak me that the have denied you an explanation or even the courtesy of a reply.

I have been thinking about moving away from WCG since they did the gestapo closing bit on the forums.   

Defiantly don't be a stranger Carl.

I never like censorship on any forum.....I feel that WCG was way out of line as a whole.....To shut down the forums to everyone is nat the answer and never will be...I also feel that is time to look for another project....

Yes it was uncalled for and knew there would be some that would go that route.  Was very disappointed who posted it though.  Thought she was above something like that.   Huh?

Anyways I'm detaching at the moment as well.   Thumbs Up

What she did really didn't surprise me at all.  She was acting the same way over at grid towards the end.
I just knew something like this was going to happen when the grid people flooded in.  The old saying "There goes the neighborhood" was never more true. Sad

I am an ex serviceman, I`m no Angel and have/do accept punishment but to read the lies WCG now state means I cannot accept them in a position of authority. I`m sorry it has come to this, the arguments were slight and had no expletives or threats....WCG put in a banning rule after the fact and never did officially let me know that was the state of affairs until that post at WCG tonight.

Thankyou for your support but it is sad to see this this happen to such great people who`ve put more time and effort into projects such as this.

I am truely humbled ! Embarrassed

but there is no doubt it will have had an effect on timescales. We will now have to wait longer for things like the stats overhaul and forum upgrade. Don't know about you, but that makes me very unhappy.

I found your statement rather amusing. [Smiley)]

If you come up with anything good, let us know.

They keep saying that the forum has nothing to do with the science and, technically, that's true but I'm not comfortable being attached to a project that includes people I wouldn't want to have a drink with.  Trouble is, those types are everywhere and how far do I want to run?  And why should I have to anyway?  They are the latecomers, the ones who trashed us for leaving grid while they remained loyal to a project that scr*wed them in the end.  Why should we, the ones who helped make WCG what it is, back down from these fools now?  We should all band together and confront the forum managers at WCG to make our feelings known.  As a group representing a lot of crunching power, we might be heard.

I'll be sure to let ya know John

Folding still has issues with the new clients, and there is still too much whining on the forums about how one platform gets more points than another for my liking.



I'm still laughing that Didactylos seems to think that the entire incident can be used as an excuse if the "timetable" changes.  rofl
