put it on Anastasios' "to do" list.

Don't bother; I've increased the limit to 30/hour.  Frankly, I didn't know we had a limit (guess I've been a mod for too long).

Wow! That is one PM every two minutes. People have to learn that they have a real life outside of OC.net. I mean we have to take care of business.

The memory of God should be treasured in our hearts like the precious pearl mentioned in the Holy Gospel. Our life's goal should be to nurture and contemplate God always within, and never let it depart, for this steadfastness will drive demons away from us. - Paraphrased from St. Philotheus of Sinai

Like I have said that Fr Romanides quote "Religion is a neurobilogical illness and Orthodoxy is its cure" still my favorite thing.

Imagine trying to evangilize someone like that. I should write up a mock story around it.

You should see the HOTCA video online with those in a round table meeting being enamored by that quote and in total awe.

Lord have mercy. Are you sure that it is HOTCA and not HOCNA? HOCNA is the one which is enamored with every word that came from Fr. Romanides' throat. Do you have the link to that video?

Sorry Maria. Bishop Christolodolous is GOC or something? Yeah they hang off every word he said. I'll post the video if I can find it.

Maria, it is three if you include 10 people.

Inbound PMs count as well. I am not sure.

I tried to find it, but there's like two dozen videos on the topic it seems. Anyway, here's their channel, you'd know better than me which one it is...

No clue! I have DSL slowness in the extreme thanks to Verizon.
Thus, my video viewing is broken up, so it is extremely limited.

However, HOTCA is part of the GOC-AB Kallinikos.

Yeah, about a month ago, I dropped CF's TAW so I could devote more time here.
Aren't you so fortunate?  ::)

p.s. I scrambled my password there, and then tossed the paper on which it was written into the trash.
To make the cut complete, I changed my email account to an obscure one.

Maria, I wish I could help you sort through the mess, but you are talking alphabet soup to me.

Do we need a PM hourly limit? Genuinely asking.

ZZ and I were discussing important matters, like memes, and she was cut off cold turkey.  :'(
It's common knowledge that you secretly want to be born in early 17th century Russia.  As a serf or a royal, I know not.  Chances are serf.

or count a multi-recipient as one sent...not one per name on the list....

I get its to stop spamming pm's but if someone has been around more than say a month.....it could be raised...

ie most spammers don't make accounts....wait 30 days and THEN spam.......
