I think most if not all of the 2P/4P folders stopped folding completely. I never built my 2P system to fold so I don't carry such animosity towards Stanford, but it was quite the crappy decision by them and could have been dealt with better. People mostly repurposed their systems to other DC projects.
If you look at [H]ard's folding output you'd also notice that their output has dropped by ~600% since 2014. There was quite the drama at the time and I think most of their leaders cut ties with Stanford. It has dealt a huge blow to x86 CPU folding,
