First thing. This thread should have been over in PrimeNet or Data, not New to GIMPS It will be moved. Please be cognizant of where you post new threads. Also, try to find an existing thread that is of the same subject before posting a new one.
For example this one:

Is this not a bit excessive? These would be category 0 if they were PRP tests, so it does not seem reasonable to me for someone to hog all these, but not really doing any work on them.
If you look at these: 104056151, 104056079,and 104055901 you will see that someone is going in and liberating those that Lisander has in their clutches. It appears that that person is working from the lower exponents upward. If someone else (such as you) worked from the higher downward, or found other such exponents that are being tied up with no work being done on them, that could help clear this problem until the the powers that be fix the assignments rules WRT P-1.
