Stop this lying nonsense. It is perfectly obvious that this motion was by Bill Goichberg.
The motion was made by Bill Hall.  It is false to state that it was made by anybody else.  It is dishonest, as you have done, to post that the email making the motion came from chessoffice@aol.xxx, when it actually came from bhall@uschess.xxx. It is dishonest, as you have done, to delete Bill Hall's name and phone numbers from the bottom of this email, replace them with "Bill Goichberg," and post the altered email on the forum.  This is FORGERY.
The moderation committee was hand-picked by Bill Goichberg.
The Board at its California meeting appointed a subcommittee of Bill Hall, Randy Hough and myself to nominate members of this committee, and the subcommittee did what the Board requested.
The decision to allow rank beginners to buy into the US Championship for $50,000 was also made by Bill Goichberg.
That decision was made by Bill Hall, although I supported it, as did the entire US Championship Committee.  The idea was also discussed several weeks earlier in Board emails with no one expressing opposition.
All of these decisions and motions that you say were made by Bill Hall even on days when Bill Hall was out "sick" were all made by Bill Goichberg.
Please explain how I got the ability to send emails with a return address of bhall@uschess.xxx.  Also, if you can explain that, how can you tell which bhall@uschess.xxx emails I send and which are sent by Bill Hall, or do you believe that he never sends any to anyone and that bhall@uschess.xxx is my email address?
 
Do you really think you are fooling anyone?
Do you think I also go to the office in Crossville to work regularly and that Bill Hall, like you say about George John, does not really exist?

In addition, Hal seems to have completely skipped the episode where Sloan altered an email from me to say exactly the opposite of what I posted.



Here is the prior post #31474 that I referred to from the topic Protected Candidates About Whom Criticism is Not Allowed:

On my own Yahoo Group, although I am often attacked there I have never modified or deleted a chess-related posting and I have never banned or blacklisted a legitimate chess poster, although many have written objectionable or Anti-Sloan things.
 


This is a blatant Sam Sloan prevarication. Sam Sloan maliciously modified my post disagreeing with Sloan's erroneous posts about the Tennessee property by cutting and pasting my comments from a reply to Sloan onto a forged post to Grant Perks. This all happened within Sloan's "FIDE-CHESS" Yahoo group. Sloan also cross posted his forgery to other forums including RGCP.

The below URL to a message in FIDE-CHESS documents Sloan's forgery.

Also, here is a brief rundown of the events in April 2005 as I just relayed them to lblair:

 
SteveTN wrote:

In fact, we are both correct. Sloan pasted my reply to Sloan (1) under a Grant Perks post (2) to make it seem as if I were replying to Perks. Sloan also used that faked post in another thread to say I was opposed to Perks' POV (3).

The post I initially responded to was a Sloan response to Bauer (4).

(3) http://games.groups.yahoo.com/group/fide-chess/message/19968
(4) http://games.groups.yahoo.com/group/fide-chess/message/19967
 


Finally, as a guide to the whole twisted affair is lblair's note (#31505) from the same thread as above where lblair reproduces the offending altered note from Sloan (notice Sloan's Yahoo ID at the top) and the actual post I authored after.

Where was there any "responding" in the Sun Apr 17, 2005 3:11 pm note?
This is all I see:

It seems to me that, to a reader of such a note, the purpose would
appear to be to report that Steve Owens had told Grant Perks that he
was "all wet on the issue". However, in the record we find:

Hi Steve,

Thank you for posting this information. I am convinced that Mr. Sloan did cobble together elements of different emails, producing false impressions of your position.

Likewise, after reviewing the research posted by John Hillery showing a BINFO originating from Bill Hall and then showing a reponse by Mr. Sloan quoting that BINFO, but in which the attribution of authorship of the original had been changed to show it as written by Bill Goichberg, I am convinced that Mr. Sloan does indeed alter or cobble together emails in ways that are blatantly misleading.

I thank you both, as well as Mr. Falter and Tanstaffl, who raised the initial challenge to me.

I still see this as somewhat different than the possibility that the Truong resume may have been doctored, for all the reasons I have expressed in previous posts.
