    OK - I'm pissed

    I posted a few times in a credit discussion surrounding the newly released optimized client (something like 50X faster). Somebody decided
    that extending the alliteration of the very commonly used "Kredit Kops" term was some sort of slur against him. The admin seems to have gone along without even reading the posts or looking at the references. Others have freely used the "Kredit Kops" term on their forum.

    These are my posts that got me banned there (newest to oldest):

    BS - you jumped to a wrong interpretation. Get over it.

    Try a Google search for "Kredit Kops" you'll get hits from BOINC projects all over the place, even on this project weeks ago. I'm certainly not the first one to use the term, with this spelling.

    I wil admit to intending an insult , but only to David A and his gang of Kredit Kops for trying to assert their imaginary credit authority over the projects.

    You are adding your own meaning to this - it was intended to be a reference to the hapless comedic Keystone Kops of old movie fame.



    Angus, this is not a game and not fun. This was a very serious insult by you and you cannot sneak out of your responsibility by inventing some pretty side references.

    Such an alliteration always implies all interpretations according to their publicity. It would be your job to qualify which was meant, if it wasn't the number one meaning but number #437 or whatever.

    If you don't do that, then you do intend it to be understood as the normal meaning of kkk.

    Cross -project stats parity is a pipedream of David A and his komedic Kredit Kops. I shall assume you are a member of the group.


    emphasis of the incriminated expression added by me


    Since I do assume that your are not dumb as a nutshell I believe that you are totally aware of your highly insulting expression.
    The comparism to the Ku-Klux-Klan is overstepping every limit. I didn't do anything to you.
    You just had no argument left, so you start insulting. This is very poor and not tolerable.

    I hope you rethink your writing and consider to seriously apologize.

    regards Kalessin

    Let's just go global with your analogy. You going to make all those countries around the world have one currency? Not happening.

    Cross -project stats parity is a pipedream of David A and his komedic Kredit Kops. I shall assume you are a member of the group.

    Each project can choose to either make the stats files available or not. It is their choice. As soon as they choose to, then they should have to play by the same rules (or close enough). If not then it would be like each state in the US having a different currency where 1 Texan dollar may not be worth the same as 1 Georgia dollar etc.

    I haven't read the thread in full, but from the posts you quoted it just sounds like people being overly sensitive (again). I'm not sure why you spelled comedic with a 'k', but it doesn't imply to me that you were suggesting what they concluded.

    Since the usual spelling these days (BOINC-relative) is "Kredit Kops" i just extended that to the adjective !

    The whole 'other meaning thing' would never even occur to me.

    What pisses me off the most is getting banned AFTER I explained the whole thing!

    I never concern myself about being kicked out of a club/click/forum that I didn't want to be affiliated with anyways.

    Don't let it eat you up, welcome back

    That's fabulous!!! I'm now going to go complain to the government that I object to the acronym CBS because of the alternate phonetic interpretation. Maybe the Angus precedent(as I'm now going to call it) can be extended to other things.

    Definitely too sensitive, and the mods were wrong.

    Yah! I believe the mods on that particular forum have previously demonstrated an inability to cogitate clearly. Dump 'em & move on.

    We're your friends and we think you're cool. Who cares what they think?
