I've found account that, i think, was created only to offend some other user.

this is link to that profile

it is all writen in polish, and it's not in good taste. i have suspicion that this account was created by cracovian
to offence my friend

some time ago they had an argument and it might have been sort of revenge, which should not be tolerated in our community.

please investigate this problem and make any step.

There must have been some spelling mistakes because my translation sure didn't make any sense.

I don't know if that function has been implemented, it wasn't before.

I think the best way to deal with it is to mail the admins with the translation of the Polish text.

it could be, because all of the text is written without any polish signs (as we call it letters with tails;) )

I think the best way to deal with it is to mail the admins with the translation of the Polish text.


yes, but i couldn't find any email to project administrator ( i thought, they don't make them public, because they don't want to get hundreds of emails everyday)

and the translation is
Personal background
Lecze sie na Oddziale Zamknietym i wam gwarantuje, ze siostra, ktora sie mna zajmuje to przybysz z kosmosu.

I'm treating myself on closed section (at psychiatric hospital) and I guarantee that nurse (sister) who is looking after me, is an alien.

Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
Szukam starszych panow

I'm looking for old males.

So as you can see it does not make big sense..

The admins emails are here http://boinc.berkeley.edu/contact.php.
They may not answer you, but you can always email them.
