Default History of the "Forum Oversight Committee"

The moderators were set up after Mike Nolan quit to stop negative
remarks about a certain candidate. All of the original moderators were
known supporters of that candidate.

When most of those moderators quit, The FOC or "Forum Oversight
Committee" was created. The original eight members were all hand
picked by Bill Goichberg and all were supporters of that candidate and
were known opponents of a certain other candidate, who was also
opposed by Bill Goichberg.

The original purpose of the FOC was to insure that any postings
unfavorable to a certain candidate, who was at that time supported by
Bill Goichberg, and any postings favorable to a certain other
candidate, opposed by Bill Goichberg, would be deleted.

However, most of the original eight members appointed by Bill
Goichberg have since quit. Also, Bill Goichberg no longer supports the
candidate he previously supported, so now the members of the FOC are
no longer under such strong pressure to delete any postings
unfavorable to that particular candidate.

Indeed, yesterday Bill Goichberg made a motion which passed 6-0
allowing members of the FOC to quit even without having obtained
Bill's approval to do so.

So, now the FOC seems to be more evenly balanced, with only a few die-
hard original members still hanging on trying to protect the
reputations of the candidates they support for election.

Does that explain it for you?

Better yet, the USCF Forums were created in December of 2003, so how could
there have been a Forum Oversight Committee in the 1990's?

Default Why Congressman Nolan falls within the NAZI party of the Boad of Delegates

.... I have met Nolan, and I
know that he runs around late at night in his underware shouting HAIL
WINSTON and GOICHBERG and giving a little NAZI salute.

Gee, Marcus, you hang out with Noland late at night in your
underwear? Does your gayness have no limit?
