We have two very different viewpoint represented in this article. I recommend we offer an overview of the two different accounts -- who says what and why, and so on. — FrJohn (talk)

Just to clarify, the article is for providing a basic chronology and overview of facts (including he said-she said). Interpretations may be discussed on this Talk page. — FrJohn (talk)
Parts of this article, on a daily basis (of late), have been consistantly deleted without explanation and despite reasonings being given for their continued presence. I suggest that something be done to prevent this - I'm not sure if sections can be protected, but if not, perhaps the page should be protected with suggested edits being placed on the talk page. --— by Pιsτévο talk complaints at 21:56, May 5, 2006 (CDT)
Because of successive blankings (without explanation), I'm protecting this article for the time being. People may make suggestions on the talk page. Thanks — FrJohn (talk)

Just a quick note: the website for the HOCNA Diocese of Boston should be is not an official URL

Well, please change it for us. A wiki is a collaborative effort. Oh, and please sign your talk page messages with four tildes (4 ~s), because I almost thought your message was written by Pistevo for a second. Thanks. Gabriela 22:52, October 29, 2006 (CST)
Gabriela - the article is actually protected (due to blankings). I've updated the article. — edited by Pιsτévο talk complaints at 02:29, October 30, 2006 (CST)
Oh, sorry, I'm an idiot. Gabriela 22:29, October 30, 2006 (CST)
Thank you. I am Michael Vezie, the technical contact for both and (actually, all contacts for While it does work (and in fact, if you look at and you'll see they're the exact same page), is the official domain, and was never intended for public release. That is why I would prefer that not be listed at all (even as a disputed alternate). Apologies for not signing my name before; I'm still new with wikis. Mlvezie 19:01, October 31, 2006 (PST)
Michael, Sorry for the delay on this and thanks for the clarification. I've removed the mention of, and also changed some of the other link descriptions to better reflect a neutral position. I've been in touch with Fr. Sergius in order to present more accurately, not only the allegations, but also the response from HTM. My (our) policy here is not to take sides in these types of debates (about which I do not know the truth), but simply to document what has been said, when, by whom, etc. I hope this will be reflected in the article, so that OrthodoxWiki will be the place that people come for a bird's eye account of the claims and counter-claims. — FrJohn (talk)

New Revisions

I've been in contact with Fr. Sergius from HTM and am in the process of reworking this article to include some of the information he's provided. Please feel free to comment here if you have any concerns or questions about these revisions. — FrJohn (talk) 19:25, November 30, 2006 (PST)
