Btw, the canon of limitations for the Moscow Patriarchate ran out in 2000; it will run out for ROCOR in 2000 or thereabouts (it starts running from the opening of the first parish of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia in Russia).

What is the canon of limitations?  I'm ignorant to what you are referring to.
A Church exercising jurisdiction in an area for 30 years without its authority being disputed cannot later be disputed by another Church.
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

Interesting.  Thanks.
