Maybe I shouldn't have said the Orthodox are a bit shocked at that. More precisely, the reaction is typically something like "Well then you aren't a real Eastern Catholic." (One of these days I'm going to try asking a WRO his/her beliefs, listening to the answer and then saying "Well then you aren't a real WRO.")

Orthodox on CAF actually tell Eastern Catholics "you aren't a real Eastern Catholic"? Admittedly I do not post on that message board anymore, so perhaps it does go on now and I don't know about it, but I never saw such a thing in my years of posting there, and it seems rather far-fetched. Why would any Orthodox person say that? Orthodox people definitely aren't Eastern Catholics, so it makes very little sense that they would see themselves fit to say who is or isn't an Eastern Catholic. Weird.

During my time there, I remember Eastern Orthodox Christians telling Eastern Catholics, "You are really not Eastern."
You are right. I apologize for having sacked Constantinople. I really need to stop doing that.

Of course they're not a real Eastern Catholic.  If they were, they wouldn't believe what the Vatican says.  

Goes for Western Catholics too: the WRO are Catholic precisely because they believe what Orthodoxy, and not the Vatican, says.
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

That's not the same thing that Peter J said, though.

Correction: not on CAF. (These days CAF might be the last place I would expect Orthodox to say anything like that.)

Huh, haven't heard that before. ;)  :P

But seriously, I meant "Well then you aren't a real Eastern Catholic" in the sense of "You aren't really Eastern."

Oh, okay. Sorry for misunderstanding you, Peter. I could see how it could happen here, given Orthodox use of the word "Catholic" self-referentially, but the idea that it would happen at CAF had me scratching my head.

You mean to tell us that there are still Orthodox stragglers on CAF?  They must be incognito.....

They banned me about two weeks.  I asked them to do it...in fact I begged them!  ;D

The environment was too toxic for me.

In what way?

This video, The Magician's Twin: C.S. Lewis and the Case against Scientism, isn't about robots specifically, but posters might like it. I did.
