    Her odious personality aside, isn't an HOF for significant players of the game?

    That's what I think anyway. HOFs shouldn't be only for likeable people.

    The baseball HOF repeats this error with Pete Rose.

    Edit: should Bobby Fischer be in the US chess HOF, given his mental illness and many ugly statements in the press?

    Susan Polgar has done more for women's chess in the US than anyone in history. For that, she should be in the US Chess Hall of Fame. Her less than savory activities should be prominently displayed as well so people understand that many people are flawed.

    NB: Pete Rose and Barry Bonds should similarly be in the baseball HOF. Great baseball players both.

    She has done a lot to bring super hot chicks to chess. I'm glad they forgave her and let her in the Chess HoF

    I wouldn't worry about it. That's about on the same level as an Oscar. 3 weeks from now who's going to remember?

    I hate to sound ignorant but I don't keep up with chess superstars very much.
    What exactly is the problem associated with Susan Polgar?

    I used to play on US chess live years ago. Her and her husband took over the site and began picking fights with people. They acted as authoritarians and censored people who criticized anything about them.
