Default Ethics Committee Takes No Action on Complaint Against Truong

Wayne Praeder has just posted on his website information about his
ethics complaint against Paul Truong regarding the Fake Sam Sloan
Postings.

http://members.aol.com/wpraeder/case.htm

It appears that in January 2008, Praeder filed a complaint against
Truong regarding the so-called "Fake Sam Sloan" postings in which
Truong over a two year period impersonated numerous other chess
personalities, including me.

Since then, six months have passed and nothing at all has happened to
the ethics complaint. The committee has not even decided whether to
accept or decline the case.

It is to be recalled that on September 20, 2007 when Brian Mottershead
informed Bill Goichberg of his findings, Goichberg told Mottershead to
keep quiet about it except to refer it to the Ethics Committee.

We can see what would have happened had Mottershead done that.

Default Ethics Committee Takes No Action on Complaint Against Truong

This lack of action is truly disgraceful; it is hard to imagine how it
could happen. Sam, has anything happened recently in the court case? I
am only interested in the case against Truong, and any developments on
that front.

No. There is still no decision. Motions to dismiss were marked
submitted on February 15, 2008. Nothing has happened since.

**There are a few things the PhD journalist might consider - the first is to
write sentences. Example, "This lack of action is truly disgraceful" but
action by whom?

**The second is the same; "it is hard to imagine how it could happen".
Without ace historical writer even mentioning what "it" is.

** We know that Jerry Spinrad openly avows only wanting to prosecute
Truong - he wrote it directly above - if its nots Truong, he ain't
interested.

** We all know his orientation to the truth in contradistinction to
partialities - that is to say, he neglects the former. Even after being
given a massive clue by Sue Polgar herself, which checked his own action,
the very next post in public was right back on target!

**Go tigers! Though I don't think Jerry Spinrad does more than meow.

** A writer on chess history? Gordon Bennet! This guy publicly declares he
is not interested in even current affairs - declares it without irony "I am
only interested in the case against Truong".

Some history reseacher! Some man?

Wayne Praeder's complaint to the ethics committee was completely
ignored for months. Are you saying that some complaint to the ethics
committee about Sloan was scuttled without investigation?

Restricting ourselves only to the FSS issue, Sloan has done nothing
wrong. Even if you believe that he is mistaken, there are no
accusations of Sloan's wrongdoing in this matter.

It's pretty clear why he attacks Sloan as a puppet'\windmill tilter
for Trollgrinnes.

Confirmation that P Innes isn't even bright enough to puzzle out a
complex sentence. Who would have thunk it?

Jerry,
Yes. There was an ethics investigation that failed to sanction Sloan.
The thinking was that even though he clearly violated the law, current
bylaws didn't give specefic power to remove him from office without
inviting another wave of frivilous lawsuits which would have to be
defended against and which would most likely be lost by the USCF
because os a lack of restrictions under their bylaws.

Please specify: What law did I violate and what did I do, according to
you, to violate said law?
