Default Goichberg says that there is "no risk" to putting Chess Life online

In BINFO 200803043 Date 2008-06-20 the following exchange took place:

"Risking the brand -- by offering a non-magazine option -- is not an
effective substitute.

"Eric C. Johnson"

"We disagree regarding whether there is risk in offering a bulletin/
online option. However, I would be interested in hearing your ideas
regarding how USCF's marketing efforts can be more successful.

"Bill Goichberg"

The above statement is truly astounding. Virtually every commentator
outside of the board has expressed the opinion that the Goichberg "New
Plan", under which, among other things, members will be offered a no-
magazine option for $13 less, is tremendously risky. Many have said
that they will drop their membership if this happens. Some have called
it "suicidal" or "insane". Hanon Russell has written that he will
consider this to be a breach of contract and has implied that he may
stop paying $150,000 per year to the USCF and may even file a lawsuit
against the USCF, if this plan goes into effect.

Yet, in the face of all this, Goichberg says that there is "no risk"
to his plan.

I am glad that now I understand that what you really want is for USCF
Membership Dues to go down to five dollars.

Mark Nibbelin is a 945 USCF Rated player who is the strongest
supporter of Susan Polgar and Paul Truong, is the strongest supporter
of the Goichberg "New Plan" which will put Chess Life OnLine, and is
the strongest critic of the Mottershead Report and those who say that
Truong is guilty, on the USCF Issues Forum.

It's odd that it's low rated players - Nibbelin, Mitchell, Innes, etc
- defending Truong. Perhaps chess lessons are in order?

Trollgar, like any false god(s), seem to need worshippers and
idolators, and the weaker the mind, the greater the worship.

So says the notorious liar Neil Brennan - who I could literally beat with my
eyes closed.

The same Brennan who is now published in Chess Dead magazine, to their
shame! SHAME! And who lied his way to the bottom.

If you want hate-speech, tune into Brennen, CD does - and won't their eyes
water! I earlier this day asked the board and Lucas how come they publish
him?

They will no doubt not notice his anti-women screeds, his hate speech and
stalking, neither will those who like his stuff. But a search, any date, on
any 100 posts of his, show you what sort of mind he has.

A bit more defamation and spite which cannot even decently mention a
person's name, by people who can't sign their own. Both, I notice are proud
to be published by Chess Dead Magazine.

And this dupliticous **** colludes with the greatest abuser of people here
as if they were to state something of any decency in public and to any
public benefit.

Grudge match? Neil Brennen versus nearly-IMnes,
blindfolded.

So let me see - anything you want to say about anyone is fine, but
other people's opinions are defamation?

I think the Trollgars ride a very high horse - and if that's fine by
you, so be it. But don't expect us all to be so weak-minded.

At least you can read his posts without thinking a doofus wrote them.
