    A fond and possibly temporary farewell

    Well folks, I am too busy to continue membership in this forum at this point. What with working full time and family matters and all that I just don't have the time to continue cross-fora prolific posting. Therefore I am cutting out most, if not all forums for at least a temporary basis. I...

    A question about the new forum policy

    Dear OC.net Administration team: Regarding the logical inference drawn from the change of name, are we now required to refer to those who do not regocnize Chalcedon as Orthodox? I do not ask to spark debate but rather to have a clarification. Joe Zollars

    an apology

    Recently, a certain member of this forum lifted a post I had made in another thread out of context. The post in question was originally intended (and in the original context was clearly understood) as a joke. However when lifted out of context it could and did offend some I am sure. Rest...

    a question for byzantineprince

    Dear ByzantinePrince: Are you truthfully and proovably Royalty? I mean more than just an ancestry.com (or similar internet geneology site) search? I ask because it has come time to renew my membership in some Monarchist groups, and if you are royalty, than I think my money could be best used...

    Akathist Hymns

    A few months back, I printed off all the Akathatists I could find online, divided them into categories, and put them into a binder so that now I have a bootlegged Akathist Book. Some have expressed interest in doing similarly, and with the thought I might be missing some, I make this thread...

    question in regards to colleges

    Ok, I am asking for some very solicited advice. I have gotten a lead on a college where I would not have to pay anything.

    Ok, I know this has nothing to do with Orthodoxy, but a few friends and I were discussing BBQ at another locality, particularly what our favorite sauces/meats/ways of preparing BBQ are. Since it is still Pascha season, and summer is coming up, I thought it might be a good time to get everyone's...
