1.) I have noticed a flush of new members registering recently that seem a little off to me. I have noticed with 3 of these members that they all have used this for their location: "123456." It makes me think they are all the same person. I have noticed others too that make me think Monachos is being infiltrated (for the utter lack of a better word) by some using false identities. My Spidey senses tell me this as I read the new members profiles.
2.) Also, on a different note . . .when someone registers as Orthodox Clergy or uses the title "father" and is Orthodox, is there any check and balance set up here to check with a church if a priest or monastery if a monk, or whatever? I don't really doubt that that those here on this forum who use the title are a priest or a monk really. But, I guess you never know on the internet. And, sometimes we have monks without monasteries and priests without parishes, but I have noticed a few who do not show their last names and do not show any parish location. Probably about 99% of priests and monks do show information (last names/locations) and not conceal anything but there a few who do seem to be using some camoflauge netting. I don't share my contact info, but I am not an Orthodox priest or monk.
