Since this thread goes unnoticed in Cafe PrimeGrid, I repeat it here. Using Boinc projects for publicity is an issue I tend to feel strongly about.
My post in Cafe:
I choose to think that the people behind the Sun Microsystems user, that pops up in all new projects, are trying to be helpful in producing clients for their platform.
However, I object against the blatant publicity for their products that appears in their profile. And gives them free publicity when they become UOTD. Please adapt your profile, and make it more discrete.
BOINC.BE: For Belgians who love the smell of glowing red cpu's in the morning
