7 September 2012. A Kind Word to Friends: Avoid Konvertsy Cesspits Such as Monomakhos…


A friend wrote me:

That Monomahkos blog is becoming a convert priest pest nest… Reardon, Jacobses, Honneycutt. They’re all there telling us Orthodox how to behave. They’re all all assholes.

I wrote back:

You shouldn’t log onto that site… it’s fulla shit and that’s no good for you. They’re going to leave us… good riddance to bad rubbish. However, don’t access their bloviations… all it’ll do is piss you off for no good reason. Focus on what we can do…

Unlike this site, which has news, images, and other opinions from the Orthosphere, Monomakhos is nothing but a bunch of juvenile konvertsy braying at the moon. Leave them be. Don’t let them rile you. They’re of no importance in the greater scheme of things in the Orthosphere’s life… don’t even log onto it. It’s that unimportant. It’s why I don’t refute Freddie M-G, Mattingly, Reardon, Dreher, et al… they don’t measure up to a “bucket of warm piss“, so, practising Christians should leave them to their spiritual masturbation and focus on better things. One of our senior clergy was getting PO’d over that bunch of goofy nuns in Maryland. One of his colleagues said to him, “They’re taking up too much space in your mind, and they’re not paying rent. You ought to stop obsessing about them”. That’s exactly what he did, it made a 100 percent improvement in his disposition, and the nutter nuns did end up leaving us. That’s what we should do concerning the schauspielers on Monomakhos. There are better things for us to be doing than to be pig ‘rasslin’ with a bunch of prelest-ridden fools.

You guys mean a lot to me… and this website is the richer for it. Thank you for that… do leave the cretins alone… it’s not worth the aggravation and Almighty God will ask you, “Why did you waste your God-given time on such nonsense?” We have a Church to unify and rebuild… that’s more important than fighting with a bunch of adolescent know-alls. Let’s keep a sense of real priorities.

28 August 2012. Latest Dribble from the Monomuckos Cabal… Take it with a Block of Salt


One of the Cabinet sent me the following. This is one of those things that you have to read to be informed, but it sure ain’t enlightening or edifying:

Unconfirmed but consistent sources inside the Diocese of the Midwest are reporting that its bishop has been put on Administrative Leave by the OCA for misconduct. The nature of the alleged misconduct won’t be reported here since that would be up to the OCA and the Diocese of the Midwest to share. It is clear that the removal of Mark Stokoe from the Midwest as one of their representative to the Metropolitan Council and recent attempts by the bishop to insist on more uniform diocesan liturgical practices received lukewarm responses in some regions of the diocese; thus, one should be careful to leave room that the misconduct allegation could be an attempt to discredit the bishop’s leadership and sully his reputation, as unfounded allegations forced another Chicago prelate, Cardinal Joseph Bernardin, to defend himself in the 1990’s.

However if, and I stress if, the allegation is true it will be another severe blow to the credibility of the OCA. One bishop is under indictment in Canada and facing a trial for sexual misconduct with minors, a Metropolitan recently removed from office, and, now, this. The question now becomes how long will Syosset try to keep a lid on this when they were so quick to publish every misstep of Metropolitan Jonah, the major of which has been proven false? One can only hope that the current Midwest allegation is also proven false and that OCA transparency will be forthcoming.


I have no URL for the above.

It sounds like the usual Monomuckos drivel to me. I wouldn’t trust any report of discipline for Moriak unless it came from the Holy Synod. Moriak’s as dumb as a box of rocks, he’s a clueless incompetent, and he’s a neopotistic schemer, but that doesn’t mean that he’s in any hot water. I did say that things were going to become very confused and jumbled at the end. Don’t jump at rumours, especially, those posted on sites with slim-to-none cred such as Monomuckos. If Moriak were suspended or under discipline, trust me, the Holy Synod would make an announcement. Therefore, give this a “that’s interesting buzz”, and don’t give it any cred until there’s official word.

9 July 2012. The Situation is Very Much in Flux… No One Knows Which End is Up… The Brats at Monomakhos Should Just All Shut Up


I’ve received many reports today, most of them contradictory. That being the case, it’d be irresponsible for me to post any news on JP. Trust me, according to some sources, a Renovationist clique executed a coup. Others say that JP resigned in a pique to mess everything up. Still others insist that Kishkovsky and Potapov ganged up on JP to get at Bobby. In short, it looks more a gigantic tits-up at this point than it did this afternoon. NO ONE SHOULD BE SPECULATING… there’s no solid evidence to go on. This especially applies to the nappy-wearing brats at Monomakhos. They should all shut up. None of them has the depth of sources that I do, and I tell all of you:

The situation’s so confused, there are so many stories “out there” at present, that anyone who posts opinion at this juncture is a braying jackass.

Let the situation develop… the news will come out. However, remember this… JP has NEVER told the truth. Ergo, take anything from him or his claque with a large dose of scepticism. Bite the coin… there be counterfeits out there… especially amongst the toddlers at Monomakhos who hide behind usernames.

15 May 2012. Do NOT Trust… VERIFY! Why oca.org and Monomakhos are Chock Fulla Shit…

Voices from Russia traffic total over the past year


oca.org US traffic over the past year


Voices from Russia traffic total over the life of the site


Comparison of oca.org and Voices from Russia US traffic over the past year (does NOT include global traffic, as oca.org didn’t release such)


There are no graphs available for Monomakhos.com. Click here for the proof (as of 18.30 EDT Tuesday 15 May 2012). Click here for verification of oca.org data and here for Voices data. All of the above tables are “old-style” graphs (I couldn’t download the “new-style”). Click on the links provided and you’ll learn a great deal about the audience to this site, and about oca.org… Monomakhos is so obscure that no data’s available… it’s one of those sites with a fanatic nutjob following… most of ‘em log on more than once daily, which often gives the Nutty Squirrel set impressive numbers of “hits”, “page-views”, and “page-loads” on miniscule “readerships”. It isn’t unusual for such sites to have over 100,000 hits a month… with less than 2,000 “readers”. Accept NO figures that lack documentation from solid third-party neutral sites. I’ve no need of boasting… I’ll simply say, click on the links, they’ll tell you the story better than I can… Lector Si Monumentum Requiris… Circumspice… Reader, if you require a memorial… look about you.

In short, I challenge ANY of the pukes bloviating on Monomakhos to PROVE that they’ve done a fraction of what I’ve done. I’ll confide that all you’ll hear is deafening silence. As Our Lord Christ said:

Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up. Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.

Gospel According to St Matthew 15.13-14

‘Nuff said. As for my friends reading this, thanks for the support… you know who you are… as for my enemies, I’ll see you in the arena… armed and ready. As always, DEMAND that your interlocutor give their identity… otherwise, if you’re wise and prudent, you’ll disbelieve everything that issues from them. I call that fair… and so does Vsevolod Anatolyevich.
