Then why does Loncon lie to us? This is perhaps the core issue I fail to grasp. Lying takes so much time.
The simplest answer is that they're not lying, and that like other conspiracy theorists, you're so in love with your conclusion that you must find ways to contort reality to adjust it to your conclusion.
I seriously would like to see him try to hold a Worldcon. It wouldn't work, and he'd be constantly railing about how everyone else but him is an idiot for not doing what is so blindingly obvious to him, but it would be fun in a schadenfreude sort of way.
