Well they did say on the forum that it was only a matter of time before it was resloved.

Good news then for the scientific community and a win for common sense?

So, this is how it works.  The brain behind the project entices us volunteers to do the hard work and hours, days of computations, costing us heaps of money in buying and maintaining our equipment let alone the cost of electricity to run those projects.  We are acknowledge for that by being awarded useless credit and badges worth not one cent of monetary value.. Now that he found an answer that is commercially viable he joins a pharmaceutical Company without as much as saying thank you suckers.

The writers of the article couldn't resist sprooking some last minute merchandising.

Zika speakers & coffee cups? Really?

That puts the icing on the cake.

Yes, I agree. Can you imagine the stock options on joining a startup when you have valuable research data created by others? This is exactly why I stopped doing med projects a long time ago!

@JN: LOL, I totally missed the merchandising premiums. Since it is a childhood disease, how about Zika diapers and baby bottles?
