I know some of you are aware of the issues at D@H
This lack of respect has gone on far enough.

Many may think this is being childish, but really this is just about common courtesy and respect. They still refuse to acknowledge in any form or fashion.

Ok some think this is just VR volunteering, but it is not! Many hours of actual time and effort is put into crunching. Especially you with large farms.
Even a simple canned response such as "We are aware of the issues, and sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused" would have sufficed.

They expect us to use up our time, comps, and electricity for this project.
Yet can't spend 2 minutes to respond.
This is total lack of respect!

I am asking you all to consider an immediate "Abort and No New Work"
I have done so, and many are following from several teams.

This will not only send D@H a message but all projects to start recognizing our importance.

Of course I can't demand everyone at TPR to do so just as you can't... but lets make the best point we can. It is these two teams that will make a difference.

Thanks gents and ladies for you consideration.

I just went over to Docking to see what's going on and there's a nice long answer to your post there: Boycott...

It looks like Docking@Home has sorted out all it's issues:


We consider Docking@home to be one of the best currently available distributed computing projects. Only negtive aspect is the missing internationality (alternative languages).

Docking@home therefore scores 5 points in overall rating.

The Seal of Approval was given in February of 2010, the Boycott started in March of 2010 but the Project has given a response since then too ...

Looks like the boycott has lost it's spokesman.

. . . all projects have had their outages, communication issues and bad WU's.
