Alas, finally, one more grid computing cultist finally turns away from his worthless point-whoring ways of laying his coal-burning, air polluting, global warming sacrifices of wasted electricity (surely you're not pretentious enough to think that any of your vain computations were ever anything but discarded, just like almost all of them) upon the altar of the God of Unearned Pharmaceutical Cartel Profits (as if we weren't all drowning in drug commercials already).

Can I call you a anti-grid computing "cultist"?

Can you say for sure his electricity is strictly from coal burning?

How do you know?

Unlike the old UnitedDevices (and a few others), the data from this particular Folding project are published in publicly available papers. Drug companies don't hold on to the data privately like some secret sauce.

So we get it, you don't get this Folding thing. Fine. There are plenty of people around here that don't believe in this and are not participating. Is there a need make such a post? :roll:
