Yea, while OCN may have the best interests and intentions in mind, it's track record is less than stellar when receiving contributions from members IMO. The advice I would give if you want to donate your extra hardware to make the best possible contribution to folding would be to start a thread here asking for people that could afford to pay for extra electricity and already appear to care about the cause of folding, then just decide yourself who you trust to fold on it as long as possible. That way at least it's down to you to decide who gets what you donate, instead of OCN picking the person handling the whole thing.
I'm sure you can find a perfect folding home for any hardware you might have in an individual member here on OCN, it just may take a bit of looking yourself instead of having a easy way to just donate to OCN directly and trust that it will be used as you would like.
