Mike Nolan posted the following on the USCF Forums under the "Correspondence Chess update" thread.

I was wondering if anyone would notice. Smile
As of early this afternoon, MSA has updated CC ratings for over 1200 correspondence players.
Alex has results entered through around April 8th, he expects to be completely caught up over the weekend. The individual results are available at:
We may have more good news for correspondence players soon."
There is hope for the USCF CC program yet!
I was disappointed that GM Susan Polgar chose to use this as a political football in her campaign for the USCF Executive Board. GM Polgar wrote, "This is just one of the many problems. We must do better and we must treat our members better, every single member! Mr. Paul Truong, Mr. Mikhail Korenman, Mr. Randy Bauer and I are committed to change the USCF for the better. Thank you Mr. Allard for bringing this to our attention!"
She wrote this on Friday, April 13th when Mike Nolan had started the thread on the Forums back in February! Yes, the USCF needs to do better. However, GM Polgar has repeatedly complained that others do not write a simple email to see if things are being fixed or for explanations of situations about which others have questions. Here, GM Polgar violates her own advice by jumping on a situation that was a problem but has had a solution in the works for months now. In addition, she did this for political gain.
Is this how she intends to operate as a board member?
Back to the USCF... Now, if we can get them to set up a server like the ICCF has!
