No.

I was curious about why Prim95 was loading the systems down so much.
It wasn't.

Prime95 was a convenient scapegoat for problems that arose elsewhere.

The moral of the story in the tipjar.com article should have been
"Get written permission before installing idle-cycle software on any machines belonging to someone else, so that that software is not unjustly blamed for problems that arise elsewhere."
