Always have an open mind.
If you didn't why would you be here trying to find other minds?
Love your statement.
I feel a vast majority of us are open minded.
The others are closed to new opportunities and friendships.

Talking about science,

doesn't matter what Eric's views are, we just focus on what he contributes.
doesn't matter what some people are saying other people, we focus on everything related to science.
doesn't matter if Newton believed in alchemy and occult, we focus on laws of motion
doesn't matter if Galileo disowned his views in the end, we focus on the telescope and what he saw

Talking about promoting this culture of digital charity and voluntary contribution.....so that one day data crunching, storage, moderation be seen as an integral part of daily routine of billions of people.....eliminating the two evergreen roadblocks of money and time.....so that science does not wait for something as stupid as parliamentary bills and Giga flops per second..........

Now that's a completely different story, which is called common social responsibility. Disheartening and Demotivation are like cancer for this purpose. We should be very careful of what words we are using, and where.
Doesn't matter if a few thousands of people are donating billions of creds per month. Thats not even a fraction of the scale we want to achieve. We want everyone in this.

Eric, Personally and Professionally, I believe you and the other Project Leaders are doing an excellent job. On the matter of "Free Speech" in our forums, I believe that all people should act and speak in a meaningful and polite manner. They should be precise and not use any forms of language that would reflect poorly on themselves or their team. We all know that Freedom of Speech does not give anyone the Right to yell "FIRE" in a crowded theater. Free speech has consequences and responsibilities in order to maintain our levels of free speech in each of our societies. Some of the hurtful and/or vulgar language being posted on our forum and others is useless. When I see that someone posts a comment or reply using inappropriate language or grammar, I just go on to the next comment or reply. The effect of using inappropriate language only shows that the individual needs another means of verbal release, like screaming into a pillow. It has the same impact over time. I would not want to be remembered for any forms of foul language. Rather, I would like to be remembered for my successes, good deeds and the "content of my character." Constructive criticism is useful if it identifies the "situation," and gives a reasonable "corrective" suggestion. I do enjoy reading about problems and suggestions. It helps everyone understand what you intended to say and what you see as a fix for the issue. A complaint without a suggestion for fixing the problem is just wasted breath, or in this case - typing. Y'all keep up the good work!!!
If it is to be - it is up to me!

When you say "are", that implies current and not past tense, so what would history have to do with it? Are you suggesting recent history has shown that more KKK members are part of the democratic party? Or are you referring to the distant past, before the parties switched in the mid-twentieth century? If you are referring to the distant past, why should the current democratic party be associated with the KKK when that was the old democratic party before they became republican?

Just to keep things factual, the Klan did actually back Donald Trump for president. This "endorsement" was immediately rejected and disavowed by his campaign. Every political party has "fringe supporters" that may not be representative of the party's official views and policies.
This is getting rather political rather fast.

And he denied wanting any part of them. As you say to keep Factual...


The KKK has NEVER been and never WILL be part of the Republican Party.

The KKK was/is part of the Democratic Party....

Wishing that part away is not going to change that. You can continue try and place them in the GOP but the TRUTH is they are and continue to be part of the DEMOCRATIC Party...

FACTUAL......

Was and are, are very different things.
One is historical, the other current.

They are not a part of any particular party. They haven't supported the Democratic party for many years, their support being mostly for the Republicans and other parties of the right eg Tea Party.
What once was, is not the case now.

Certainly in the past (the up-to-the-early-1960's "Dixiecrats" prior to the south going Republican in federal elections) but I'm extremely dubious of the "continue to be" part... please provide some evidence.

dA LEFTY ANARCHISTS, Most of Rest of LEFTIES, and LEFTY MEDIA(Most of What Public Consumes), Portrays ALL Right of Center White Men as 'White Supremacists'. Among Other NASTY Descriptors.

The OP Must Know This, and using 'White Supremacists', is An On-Purpose Slur, intended to RILE and DEFILE.

Continuing with Platitudes for OP, is Hardening what is Becoming A National Deception to FALSELY Villify a LARGE GROUP of US Citizens.

Really... if you're going to post a steamer like this, you could at least link to one of these examples. Since this is all over the "lefty media" you can go right to the source and direct link it from there. Should be easy to find since there's so much of it, right?

You're the one that made the claim that the KKK was in the democratic party. I would certainly like evidence of that or you're just posting accusations and not facts.

Whether the KKK is, or was ever, in any political party, is irrelevant to the Seti@Home scientific project.

Surely now is the time for Eric, or the Mods to lock this thread.
