Okay, I get that my project is not yielding any novel or interesting results. And fine, I spent (to you, wasted) two months rewriting all the code because y'all were unhappy with the lack of some minor physical details being present, never mind that the code worked and modelled what it was supposed to, independent of these details. Really, no other model in the field even cares about these details--what we're modelling doesn't even behave in such a manner that considering these quantities makes sense; I'll read the papers you send me, but it's still true that there really was not a problem before. But, I shrugged my shoulders and went on with the re-write, re-derived the equations, showed them to you, pointed out that they formed an altogether new model, and re-wrote all the code. And now, it has all of the features y'all wanted, and is a whole lot faster. Whoo. More data in less time.
But, if you're going to all of a sudden end my project and my affiliation with your lab because you think it's not going nowhere or something, it'd be nice if you told me directly rather than first removing me from the lab e-mail list, then a week later taking all but one person off my project's e-mail group, not scheduling any meetings when you used to insist on weekly in-person updates, and then just not contacting me at all. I get the hint, but really...
If I end up as an academic with a lab group and (undergraduate) students working for me, I'll be sure not to pull crap like this--the odds are, it'd piss other people off more than it pisses me off.
