You pretended you had the authority to get approval to be a speaker.
This is a false accusation. He never claimed or implied any such authority. Can you provide evidence that Maestroh EVER claimed he could get you in to speak at SBL?
From what I've seen at BVDB, he merely offered to pay for your membership (and in a later post offered to take a video of the presentation if you ever actually got in). Here it is, in his own words:
I honestly think [Avery] should present his (incompetent) research on Sinaiticus, not on an Internet forum that has only two active members but in front of the people he has attacked as "incompetent" as he recently did both Keith Elliott and Dan Wallace.
Boston isn't that far from NYC, you can come up on the train. Not only that - I WILL PAY FOR YOUR ANNUAL MEMBERSHIP IN SBL FOR 2017 if you actually present this paper.
The call for papers for SBL typically opens around mid-December 2016 and you will know if you are selected by March 2017.
How about it? Are you actually up to REAL biblical scholarship and interaction? Or are you little more than a hack Internet troll without one ounce of knowledge of the subject?
Just be forewarned - there is a QA/ response afterwards and you might well get dragged onto the carpet and demonstrated to be a fool by David Parker, Keith Elliott, or Peter Head, all of whom I'm sure will be there (Dan Wallace will and given your insults of Ed Komoszewski, he may well have some difficult questions for you as well).
So how about it? If you're REALLY interested in scholarship - here's your chance.
And from another post (thread: "Dr. Tom Wasserman to speak about the Simonides nonsense at SBL"):
You have to admit my idea was not as far-fetched as it seemed at the time, and I SINCERELY hope - SINCERELY - that Avery would join the SBL and come let actual textual experts (and not just the "amen" corner that frequents his Facebook posts) ASK HIM QUESTIONS. My goodness, I'll film this on my HD video and ensure widespread proliferation of this one.
