Default Susan Polgar, a Non-Member, is listed as Number One US Woman Player

After years of being off the top-women rating lists due to inactivity,
Susan Polgar is now listed as number one, even though she was expelled
from the USCF in August.

She got this number one ranking by playing a single exhibition game
against Fred Gruenberg, a 1500 rated player.

Should there not be some rule against this?

Perhaps they want to stack a future US Women's Team...

Susan Polgar is awesome, and invaluable to the promotion of chess in
the US. Whatever her relationship with the USCF, we need her a lot
more than she needs us. I for one celebrate ANY announcement of her
involvement in our beleaguered hobby.

It would be interesting if she did play under a different flag at a
FIDE event as a protest!

You can be part of US chess and not part of the USCF. One does not
necessarily presume the other.
