In plain English: Only views which are also held by the almighty moderators, are permitted.
Mindless Sycophants wanted....... others know where the outgoing swinging door is....... or to not even knock on that door to begin with.

Here, the All-Powerful super-oberprokurator appointed for life,  'moderator', MARIA !
pontificates!
How totally bland, prejudiced, and STUPID, and useless has Ecafe become!
It puts out far more pure wrong information and ignorance, than any valuable or truthful information,
about anyone or anything!.... especially so, NOT about our ROCA, or anti-MP Russian Orthodoxy.

Saint Euphrosynos Cafe is a forum committed to fostering community among fellow True Orthodox believers and helping each other in our struggle for salvation, and also in reaching out to members of official Orthodox churches or other denominations, religions or philosophies. We welcome questions, discussions and even disagreements, but there are limits we must respect in order to avoid inflaming passions. Therefore the moderators have decided on the following rules, in addition to Christ's commandment "that ye love one another, as I have loved you" (John 13:34).

General rules

The following hold for both public and private forums:

- No personal attacks or ad hominem arguments
- No gossip, slander or unsupported attacks on the character of those outside the forum
- No links to personal blogs or websites that contain gossip or defamation. Please read the blog before posting it to insure that there is no gossip anywhere. News media speculation should be posted in the private political forum.
- No general polemics against True Orthodoxy or proselytism in favor of other religions or worldviews
- No promotion of immorality or attacks on traditional doctrine or praxis
- No explicit discussion of sexual matters
- No blasphemy, foul or inflammatory language
- No posting of spam or pornography (incurs immediate permanent ban)
- No copyright violations (see end for more details on this)
- No questioning or challenging of moderatorial actions
- Prompt compliance (within 24 hours) with any moderatorial request, e.g. for translation, citation etc.

The following hold for the public forums:

- No polemics against particular True Orthodox jurisdictions (permitted in Intra-TOC Polemics forum)
- No politics, conspiracy theories or speculations about the end times (permitted in Controversial Social and Political Issues forum)

If you wish to post material that is only appropriate for the private forum and do not yet have access, please contact an administrator for access before you post, to avoid incurring a possible penalty.

Private forums

Access to the public forums is free to all members and membership depends only on not being a robot, being over 13 and not having already been permanently banned. Access to private forums is subject to the following conditions:

Intra-TOC Polemics

Access to the Intra-TOC Polemics forum is restricted to True Orthodox members. In order to gain access, you must provide an administrator with the contact information of a priest or bishop in a recognized True Orthodox jurisdiction so that we can confirm that you have been received into the Church (by baptism, chrismation or confession) or are a catechumen preparing to be received into the Church.

Controversial Social and Political Issues

There are no special restrictions on participation in this forum if you are already a member. Please contact an administrator for access.

TOC Priesthood

Open to any canonical deacon, priest or bishop in a recognized True Orthodox jurisdiction. Contact information from a TO bishop or synod may be required to confirm your ordination and canonical status.

TOC Women

Open to any female True Orthodox members. Please contact an administrator about access; proof of identity may be required, as well as contact information from a TO priest or bishop.

TOC Youth

Open to any young True Orthodox members, young meaning between the ages of 13 and 18. PM an administrator for access.

Discipline

From the time of publication of these rules, discipline will be as follows (subject to moderatorial discretion):

First warning
Second warning
Third warning, banned 1 day
Fourth warning, banned 7 days
Fifth warning, banned 2 weeks
Sixth warning, banned 1 month
Seventh warning, banned permanently

Note that "warning" means active warning, i.e. one that appears on your profile. These automatically expire after 3 months, after which they no longer count.

Moderators may be lenient towards new users and send informal warnings by private message before imposing a formal, public warning.

Moderators may impose post moderation on a user for some or all forums after a third active warning is gained. This means that when a user posts in a forum, that post is kept hidden and must be approved by a moderator before being published.

Moderators reserve the right to edit or remove offending posts in order to conform to these rules.

Members have the right to contact an administrator or moderator privately to discuss a warning, ban or other moderatorial decision.

Any attempt to skirt a temporary or permanent ban will incur immediate permanent banning.

Other moderatorial actions

Moderators also have the responsibility to keep forum threads on topic and reserve the right to move, split or merge topics, to move posts and to edit subject headers to comply with this. Posts will not be edited unless they violate the forum rules above, or at the member's request.

If moderators judge that the thread as a whole has become inflammatory or otherwise inappropriate for this forum, they reserve the right to lock it temporarily or permanently, and to remove or edit offending posts or threads. Alternatively, if certain threads consistently provide welcome contributions moderators may make them "sticky", meaning they will always appear at the top of the list for that forum.

Copyright violations

If you wish to repost someone else's writing in this forum, you MUST get the permission of the author or publisher before doing so. Generally, if someone's writing is paid for by another, e.g. a business company, news agency or publishing house, the company owns the copyright. Otherwise, the author owns the copyright. In either case, without permission from the company or author, you may not reproduce the piece of writing in full, but only selective quotations (up to 2 paragraphs is usual) and a link or citation so readers can refer to the original source.

Encyclicals and synodal announcements are assumed to be public domain, but here also a link or citation must accompany the text.

Note that different sources have different copyright policies, and some allow copying of entire articles or large quotations, provided there is attribution (e.g. Wikipedia). It is the responsibility of the user to include the copyright policy with the rest of the text when copying large blocks; otherwise, the moderator will assume a copyright violation.

Language policy

Unless you are posting in one of the foreign language forums, please provide a translation for any non-English text in your post. Human translation is preferred, but machine translation is acceptable, e.g. Google Translate. Failure to comply with a request for a translation from a moderator will result in a warning.

Citation policy

A moderator may ask for a citation of some source to support an assertion of fact. Please comply with any such request to avoid getting a warning. Either bibliographical reference or a URL will suffice.

Rules amended to add:

- No links to personal blogs or websites that contain gossip or defamation. Please read the blog before posting it to insure that there is no gossip anywhere. News media speculation should be posted in the private political forum.

Several posts have had to be removed due to the horrific links they contained.
Please read the personal blog or website before quoting or linking it to our site.

  1. Maria lists her jurisdiction as GOC-Met. John. She means the "Milan synod" (under pseudo-metropolitan John LoBue).

  2. Maybe this is a good time to mention again that I advise against joining the ECafe, because you can NEVER un-join.

    I had to go to *drastic* measures to get the moderators even to make my membership "inactive". I see this as a trespass. It is against my will.

    Also, you are not permitted to edit your own posts or comments, but the moderators continually reword and censor anything they please that you have written. This is true for both the public and the private forums.

    The archives, which used to have a real value, have also been "moderated" in retro. Posters of the past intended their posts to be public, but now their posts have been "moved to the private forum" (and often further censored there).

    The moderators are on a major huge control-trip which indicates severe lack of faith. JGress recently entered into a secular marriage with a non-Christian wife. This indicates a serious lack of faith.

    I also advise against even reading ECafe, especially for inquirers. It is not a place to find sound advice.

  3. I'm sure that the KGB is happy that ECafe is now out of commission and the archives are destroyed. And that it now serves to ensnare innocent unwary inquirers into the vigante Milan synod, or else a super-correct schism.

    ECafe is a forum committed to jurisdictional ecumenism. We welcome questions which we will answer and further discussions with those who agree with our answers to the questions. In case you have figured out that we are not really Orthodox, then we have a full cache of methods by which we can make sure you don't say anything that might alert anyone that we are frauds. Enjoy! We LOVE you!

  5. Back in the days of the shipwreck ECafe had a purpose. The purpose was abused by ill-wishers, but still shipwreck victims were able to find confirmation and support. But now the shipwreck is over. Everyone has landed somewhere and the lines are drawn between the schisms, apostates, (and the vigante). The only purpose ECafe can serve now is jurisdictional ecumenism. The super-correct version of SCOBA.

    I pray none of us are ever tempted to include our ROCA among the schisms. Anyone who does so in their mind certainly has a vague idea of the Church.

  6. Through your advice I am no longer posting there. Time to pull the needle from the arm...
