You can tell if a jurisdiction like the regurgitated Milan Synod, aka "Autonomous Orthodox Metropolia of North and South America and the British Isles" is vagante when they post an ad looking for monks on one of their websites. Aside from the excessively long name they now go by, and their huge presence on the internet* they are an extremely small group – just a handful of people. This is the main reason why they are desperate to fill their ranks and why they're not above scraping the bottom of the barrel in ordaining their clergy. They ask no hard questions and require no canonical releases of anyone wanting to join them as clergy. No one is ever excommunicated, they always just leave of their own accord
* thanks to their #1 propagandist Joseph (Brew Deacon) Suaiden,and other characters such as Enoch (Emonk) Fetter and Symeon (Angry Bird) Bar (?...well, OK) Yohanan and recently added acolyte Nathan (Prophet Reader) Lee Lewis,
This all somehow reminds me of a quote by Joseph Goebbels, the Nazi propaganda minister...
"The essential English leadership secret does not depend on particular intelligence. Rather, it depends on a remarkably stupid thick-headedness. The English follow the principle that when one lies, one should lie big, and stick to it. They keep up their lies, even at the risk of looking ridiculous."
SEEMS AS THOUGH THEY HAVE REMOVED THE WEBSITE, HOWEVER IT CAN STILL BE SEEN HERE:
