I do recall that there were stats adjustments after CSC. It's a bit hard to
tell since those stats are no longer available. I also assumed it had
something to do with the 'over run' that was encountered during CSC that
actually ending up putting keyspace % complete over 100%. I don't know if
they 'threw away' users work. If they did, I don't think people would be as
upset since not everyone worked on CSC, and it was such a short project
