1st, you can't compare big companies with a dc-project. It's the same as comparing that project with a democratic country and his government.
Some of you compared dictators (mostly war crimes) and dlb. What's wrong with it ? At least dlb has his right to do. And it is not a crime. But you compared. You say you can do and I have no right to do. Why ? Because my ideology is far different from yours ?
2nd, (to accomplish your question) if I write to one of those companies (even in the forum!) I'll get an proper response at least within a week.
I recieved from MS, about Internet Mail and News in 1995, for the correction of hard-coded "8 bit" word. The answer was "it is the software specification". As you know E-mail has 7-bit encoding, and actually this software also use 7-bit, but on the header it writes as "8 bit", and kind servers convert to 7 bit (losing another 1 bit so unreadable anymore). Is this "proper response" for you?
3rd, lot of boinc projects with rare responses? Please tell me some. The ones in which I participate are all very responsive.
When you write some to admins, you will know it. And also you should know every boinc member will write "replyable question". Someone feels "their poor response".
4th, destroying administrators?? Closing projects?? What are you talking about???? Nobody wants to destroy dlb, or close the project. We want dlb to take notice that he was not acting the right way. As in this case there has been no response neither from dlb itself, nor from his superior we don't see any chance to call attention to our points, but to refuse to crunch work units for that project and to write that open letter. If the situation will be cleared many of the users will continue doing work for predictor. The project itself is worthy, but the way it is administered makes it non worthy for us.
Nobody ? Some already wrote about it, if you have read whole boards. I wonder exactly same way, what are you talking about ?
You always say he had no solid proof. Well, if he had looked closely into the mailing list as the other project administrators has done
No one showed that mail yet. Most were personal mails. On the mailing list, dlb obtained the information and just after that he modified Wate's account.
We want to get attention to dlb's behaviour of good people the project needs and demands. Sure there were few and far people between which did not act polite, already said in this thread by others.
And you did not do anything against it.
But there were many others, which even didn't post a single word in the forum (concerning the Wate issue) and get banned, blocked and finally deleted. What about them? What about the users just asking for what is going on and getting banned and deleted?
I was on the fora, and not deleted. I don't know why some others got deleted, but I have also no proof that they really did not do any. There is lots of accounts on p@h (although active may fewer), and on some time "duplicationg accounts matter" possibly made such a side effect, I don't know. There is no way to specify for me, as I could not see whole posts.
Sorry don't get what you try to say here.
On another post somewhere (or I guess at p@h) it was mentioned that p@h was using boinc default (so to say initial) setting, and it made forum errors after deletion of the accounts.
