I agree, and I apologize if I have treated them or anyone else badly.

It's okay, I don't think you have treated them too poorly, but perhaps a bit dismissively.  You seem to fall back on looking down on "Photian schismatics" as a rhetorical device, and I think the deserve more than that.  They have valid sacraments and what's more, jurisdiction.  The East is serious, and to be taken seriously.  Indeed, much Western error (Protestantism, by and large) can be corrected by looking to the Eastern witness of the Faith.
