"It only seems to annoy those who are anyway ? " Seriously wiggles ? Thats the very attitude responsible for Democrats losing so many seats nation wide , not to mention the Presidency. In case your not aware , Democrat seats are at a 70 year low, they have a serious image problem. Look in the mirror and you will see why.

Another 2 cents from a long time cruncher ( since 1999 ) and donor :
I don't like the implications of Eric's White Supremacist comment that displays every time I open up BOINC comment section. . . Until such time of its removal I won't be
crunching or donating to the project.

Long term cruncher here again, I've been running SETI at home from the beginning in 1999. . . I am also a donor ( not much, but more than most ). The name calling is offensive , is this about science or politics ?

I think its outlandish to associate SETI@home with any of the political unrest at berkley. . . however, as a white man and someone who is conservative on some issues , I find Eric's white supremacist comment suggestive and offensive. It sounds rather like taking sides .

The white supremacist comment was out of line. . . But I'm not here to argue with people who throw insults because that is all they can do to express their disagreement with people of other points of view . I am a white independent who voted for Trump, my wife, who is from the Philippines also voted for Trump. My x-wife, (though I don't know how she votes) , is from Panama . So anyone accusing me of being a white supremacist is a complete fool. I believe in rule of law and free speech for all . However I won't leave the SETI project over a comment made by a pin head . . . and you sir are a pin head .

I started crunching for SETI back in 1999, the frontier days before the BOINC client. I believe it would take me an entire 24 hour day to complete 1 work unit. I left my computer on 24/7 for a full year trying to rack up points. Why ? I was born in 1964 and grew up during the apollo moon missions. The Astronauts were my gods and my heros ! This all led me into the thought of life in outer space . . . i'm in my 50s now and not a day goes by where Im not thinking about alien life. . . out there somewhere . perhaps we will find then or they will come here . We are actually physically participating in a project that can drastically change the course of human evolution like nothing before. It will be the BIGGEST story every to happen to the human race . . .are we going to allow name calling infantile tactics to ruin something GREAT !

Guys . . .we need to pull back together , cut the insults and the digs .stick to what we have in common. . . WE ARE SCIENTISTS !

I have already COMPLETELY deleted all BOINC and ALL associated data. I rebooted and downloaded all the newest versions and rebooted again. That coincides with the times the abandoned work appears, though no tasks were displayed within SETI as either active or not.
