credits

Credits? It's a way by the project to pay you for your time here, for the work you have done. Other than needing a RAC higher than zero to be able to post in the top 3 forums, credits are rather useless. For bragging rights more or less. To have a place in the standings.

On the BOINC home page a project is listed (eternity2.net) which promises to give money to its crunchers, but first you have to buy something. I wonder whether it is right for BOINC to have its software platform used by a money making organization.
