Forum Rules (Everyone Must Read!!!)

1] What you CAN NOT post.

You agree, through your use of this service, that you will not use this forum to post any material which is:
- abusive
- vulgar
- hateful
- harassing
- personal attacks
- obscene

You also may not:
- post images that are too large (max is 500*500px)
- post any copyrighted material unless the copyright is owned by you or cited properly.
- post in UPPER CASE, which is considered yelling
- post messages which insult the Armenians, Armenian culture, traditions, etc
- post racist or other intentionally insensitive material that insults or attacks another culture (including Turks)

The Ankap thread is excluded from the strict rules because that place is more relaxed and you can vent and engage in light insults and humor. Notice it's not a blank ticket, but just a place to vent. If you go into the Ankap thread, you enter at your own risk of being clowned on.
What you PROBABLY SHOULD NOT post...
Do not post information that you will regret putting out in public. This site comes up on Google, is cached, and all of that, so be aware of that as you post. Do not ask the staff to go through and delete things that you regret making available on the web for all to see because we will not do it. Think before you post!

2] Use descriptive subject lines & research your post. This means use the SEARCH.

This reduces the chances of double-posting and it also makes it easier for people to see what they do/don't want to read. Using the search function will identify existing threads on the topic so we do not have multiple threads on the same topic.

3] Keep the focus.

Each forum has a focus on a certain topic. Questions outside the scope of a certain forum will either be moved to the appropriate forum, closed, or simply be deleted. Please post your topic in the most appropriate forum. Users that keep doing this will be warned, then banned.

4] Behave as you would in a public location.

This forum is no different than a public place. Behave yourself and act like a decent human being (i.e. be respectful). If you're unable to do so, you're not welcome here and will be made to leave.

5] Respect the authority of moderators/admins.

Public discussions of moderator/admin actions are not allowed on the forum. It is also prohibited to protest moderator actions in titles, avatars, and signatures. If you don't like something that a moderator did, PM or email the moderator and try your best to resolve the problem or difference in private.

6] Promotion of sites or products is not permitted.

Advertisements are not allowed in this venue. No blatant advertising or solicitations of or for business is prohibited.
This includes, but not limited to, personal resumes and links to products or
services with which the poster is affiliated, whether or not a fee is charged
for the product or service. Spamming, in which a user posts the same message repeatedly, is also prohibited.

7] We retain the right to remove any posts and/or Members for any reason, without prior notice.


Members are welcome to read posts and though we encourage your active participation in the forum, it is not required. If you do participate by posting, however, we expect that on the whole you contribute something to the forum. This means that the bulk of your posts should not be in "fun" threads (e.g. Ankap, Keep & Kill, This or That, etc.). Further, while occasionally it is appropriate to simply voice your agreement or approval, not all of your posts should be of this variety: "LOL Member213!" "I agree."
If it is evident that a member is simply posting for the sake of posting, they will be removed.

8] These Rules & Guidelines may be amended at any time. (last update September 17, 2009)

If you believe an individual is repeatedly breaking the rules, please report to admin/moderator.

    ARF holds regional meeting in French parliament

    03.06.2004 14:14

    YEREVAN (YERKIR) - The Armenian Revolutionary Federation (ARF) Western Europe organization held its 68th regional issue on June 2 in the building of the French parliament.

    ARF Bureau representative Hrant Margarian, Armenian Ambassador to France Eduard Nalbandian, Nagorno Karabakh Republic's representative to France Hovhannes Gevorgian as well as representatives from French political parties and Armenian organizations attended the meeting.

    ARF Western Europe Central Committee representative Murad Papazian said that the decision to hold this meeting at the French parliament came in appreciation to France which recognized the Armenian Genocide in this very building.

    "The party that is coming from three centuries, today is working in two directions in Europe: to have France adopt a law that would punish those denying the Armenian genocide; and prevent Turkey from joining the European Union unless it admits the genocide," Papazian said.

    ARF Bureau representative Margarian, welcoming the gathered, stressed the importance of the party's European organization.
    Ambassador Nalbandian noted it was hard to imagine the Diaspora without the ARF, whose history is amalgamated with that of the Armenian nation.

    Having a law that punishes denial is ridiculous. It sounds a bit Jew-like, to me, and is against freedom of speech. I want Armenians to succeed by being respected and not by being dycks. That is one of the dumbest things I have read today. You should not stop people from saying things with laws; you present history in such a way that if anyone denies it, they will be laughed at.

    However, Turkey does not ever deserve to be part of the European Union, I do not care what they do. Phuck them. Anyway, allowing entry into the E.U. must be unanimous among the countries of the E.U. and I do not see Greece ever voting "yes" for Turkey, regardless of what France says.
