Answer by Swami Gaurangapada:
Yes, it is predicted in the Shrimad Bhagavatam that 99.9% monks in Kali Yuga will be bogus and just after their own sense-graitification and thus so many people will be misguided (manda bhagya) and led to deviated paths other than pure bhakti to Lord Gauranga-Krishna. The common people are already sumanda matayo that is that they do not have any inclination for spirituality and a few of them that do have end up getting misled by bogus people. This is Kali Yuga. And that is why Lord Krishna has come again in Kali Yuga as Lord Gauranga in the form of the original Sadhu and Guru of all living entities: sadhu guru rupe krishna aila nadia....Anyone who worships Lord Gauranga in Kali Yuga and chants His Holy Name is the most intelligent real sadhu despite one's limitations if any. The primary symptom of a great devotee is how much he or she is attached to chanting and spreading the Holy Names of Nityananda, Gauranga and Hare Krishna and Their pastimes.
You are right that we should rather vigorously chant and spread the Holy Names of Supreme Gods of all Gods and creation---?Shri Shri Nityananda Gauranga rather than endeavor to make a list of the bogus sadhus who are cropping up at every moment in this world preaching something other than devotion and surrender to the Holy Names of Lord Gauranga-Krishna and Lord Nityananda-Balarama.
