Bioinformatics may suck...

but I am here to help!

For many years, I have seen and helped people struggle with basic bioinformatic analyses just because there is not enough funding to ask the core facility for yet another analysis or there is nobody around to ask for help or the PI is extremely pushy or etc...

So this is a service for such people who are seeking out anonymized bioinformatic expertise for a small task and willing to pay small amounts out of their pocket in bitcoins to get the job done.

I can code in R, Python or Java and will give you all the scripts, intermediate data files and summary text suitable for your results or methods section.

No bullshitting. No overcharging. No lies.

How to make a great impression on a bioinformatics forum in your first line: "Bioinformatics may suck..."

Hello bioinformatics-help!

It appears that your post has been cross-posted to another site: And on the other site you mention it's "completely unethical", but needed to help you avoid tax issues!!? You're better off getting a part-time job at Starbucks.

This is typically not recommended as it runs the risk of annoying people in both communities.

Hello bioinformatics-help!

We believe that this post does not fit the main topic of this site.

Closing because this seems really shady. I've also suspended OP's account. Admins please let me know if I should undo either action.

For this reason we have closed your question. This allows us to keep the site focused on the topics that the community can help with.

If you disagree please tell us why in a reply below, we'll be happy to talk about it.

Cheers!

Seems like a reasonable action...this post is just so incredibly sketchy.

Link is still present in the text block at the end of post.

Right, because this isn't completely sketchy or anything...

Since @Istvan has not chimed in (or decided to delete this) perhaps he has decided that this post is acceptable for Biostars.

OP is advertising a service that does not seem to do/offer anything illegal at first glance (other than the tax part, but that applies only to OP). Those who feel they have no other way to get their work done (and are ok with using this method of keeping things hidden) should be free to use the service. If they are not able to do basic bioinformatics analysis how they will deal with tor/bitcoins is an interesting question.

IMHO the OP should have just posted a straight up offer for bioinformatics services and should have avoided the whole "cloak-and-daggers"/illegal activity overtones.

Any regular business offer is fine, we are not and should not be policing other people.

But when someone seems to be suggesting/implying illegal activity then we do have a different level of responsibility.

(Also just to comment on "but that applies only to OP" for example if the OP wants to evade taxes that is their responsibility as long as I do not know about it - but once I do know and help achieve that I may be responsible as well)
