I find it disappointing that over the years the BOINC community has become increasingly infested with credit whores and badge fetishists. Whatever happened to the desire to assist scientific research?


They're definitely still there. But for the people running the projects, who are trying to get the research done, the "credit whores" are a blessing. An awful lot of science is accomplished in the pursuit of the almighty credit. That's a good thing, in my opinion.
