LOL, no I think it's stupid to hate on someone for soemthing like trying to cure fricken cancer. I am sure everyone in this thread has lost someone to some type of cancer. Personally I lost both my parents to cancer. My Dad to leukemia, and my Mom to small cell lung cancer. I get it. I just question some peoples motives....it's hard not to be jadded in todays society. I am sure the good certianly out weigh the bad in the folding arena though.

Put it this way. If there was a project out similar to folding to help find a cure for being downright stupid. I would invest every dollar I had to contribute just to shut you up.
Why be rude? OP has a right to express his/her opinions and thoughts, just because this forum has a big folding community doesn't mean nobody is allowed to criticise F@H!

I think OP makes some good points and anyone with even basic knowledge of economics would easily see where he/she is coming from. Instead of insulting him/her or calling them a troll why don't people try to input positively and explain to OP why they fold and what the folding research is being used for or could potentially be used for.

The OP already did his research. His mind is made up. If he wanted to read about the positive effects of folding he would of.

Instead he choose to come here to express his negative opinion, and views on the whole project.
What is the point of this thread even? To turn OCN users away from folding?
That at the very least should be frowned upon.

All of us already know this world is not perfect, and that corruption is all around us.

This. People on OCN compete in folding all the time. If there were no points, there'd be no competitions and therefore little reason for people to do that extra to calculate more. The points aspect is why F@H is successful.

@OP

What? I don’t even….

As much as I appreciate your wanting to (possibly I hope) have an honest discussion and not be a troll. I don’t understand your need to openly air your negative feelings towards folding, in a place where you know darn well everyone devotes time and money to it because they believe in it.

I feel no need to defend something I believe in. But its sad that you choose to stir the pot in such a manner.

Ever thought that maybe this thread is part of OP's research? After all as the title suggests folding doesn't make sense to him/her.

I don't think any OCN members will turn away from folding because of this thread, and if they do then they could probably just as easily be turned back lol.

Everyone needs to understand that for most new OCN members F@H is a strange project and it's usually approached with some scepticism (I know I did my fair share of research before starting to fold, I even read a few of the publications that used F@H data before being convinced that it's a worth while cause), some may just be more sceptical than others and that's when these kinds of threads are born. Hating on OP isn't doing anyone any good! Explain things logically and maybe we will have ourselves another folder at the end of this.

Come on, guys, stop ragging on the OP. He does bring up valid questions. I'm not saying that the pharmaceutical companies have a big conspiracy going on or anything, but you do have to wonder why there's no actual cure for any disease, only vaccines and treatments.

While I don't do it myself for fiscal reasons, I do believe F@H is a good thing, along with all the other distributed computing projects out there.

Maybe for the same reason we don't have warp drive and transporters yet? Because some problems are incredibly complex, and our understanding of our own bodies as well as our universe is incredibly lacking? No need for conspiracy theories.
