In 2010 Minas suddenly resigned from Joseph Suaiden's news blog team. This was after he had served for nearly a year, being regarded as a highly-valued reporter. Suaiden did not take this rejection lightly. One of the #1 rules with narcissists is NEVER reject a narcissist. If they can't convince you to change your mind, and if then they can not force you to change your course of action; then they have only 2 possible options: a) dismiss you as a worthless nobody, or b) punish you. The punishments can be severe. Think of the narcissist who murders his wife/girlfriend saying, "If I can't have her, nobody will!"
What prompted Suaiden to complain to Minas about his behavior is that Minas had been demanding Ekklesiasticos identify themselves instead of hiding behind anonymity while they pretended to have some kind of clerical authority. This was taking place on an Euphrosynos Cafe forum where Suaiden was also a participant. Suaiden had been trying to get in good with various super-corrects, and he was totally embarrassed when Minas, a member of Suaiden's NFTU team, wasn't going along with the pretense that the Ekks are mature and respectable leaders of true Orthodoxy.

NFTU is not a forum, it's a news site. NFTU has a forum but this commenting system is not it. I believe that many people think that and that is why we get so many off topic comments, lengthy comments and people who comment without reading the guidelines before posting a comment, but that will change soon enough.
