Default Goichberg has fears about the online membership

This is another completely stupid idea by Bill Goichberg. Online
magazine readership will never be popular, regardless of how much the
USCF tries to promote it.

People do not like to read lengthy things such as books and magazines
online. Every online magazine in the history of the Internet thus far
has been a failure and has eventually
closed down.

I am a successful book publisher because I publish real books made of
paper and ink, unlike Everyman Chess who primarily publishes ebooks
now.

Goichberg needs to be removed from all positions of authority in the
USCF. Every year that has had Goichberg on the board has been a year
of financial loss. Goichberg has been driving the USCF into the ground
with his stupid and ridiculous ideas.

Those are new products, still losing money, and yet to be proved a
success at attracting enough readers to justify the cost.

I am sticking with my old-fashioned paper and ink variety.
