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.


- PLEASE READ -

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.

      Corruption reality vs perception.
      Armenians both at home and in the diaspora and their fairy tales about man-eating mafias and central-african-style governance are to be blamed for this.

                    The T-90A with welded turret performed better than the T-72s in Syria.


                    Yea, it is logical. The difference is because or cast and rolled steels. Looks like T72 turrets are cast with their roundish bulb shape. This shape can only be cast.
                    Welded turretshave to be made with pieces of rolled steel cut and weld together.
                    The difference between cast and rolled steels is their molecular structure. In cast steel molecules are in loose formation as hot melt cools down.
                    In rolled steel molecules get compressed as sheets are continuously rolled down to thickness. They form tighter bonds and grains and are harder to cut, drill or penetrate with projectile.
                    Have you guys had cast handles or other parts break in your hands (cheap cast things)? But any steel part that is machined from rolled steel block is harder many times over.

                      Look at the list of countries Armenia has been lined up with and level of personal experiences with corruption(the green line). So Armenia is in level of countries with endemic corruption that has been persistent in their recent history.
                      The dot representing perception of corruption in population is the highest in Armenia because of blockade, war and uncertainty of population coupled with overwhelming poverty.
                      The fact that the dot is so high indicates the level of discomfort and attention in population to issues country faces.
                      It also indicates that Armenians have the highest probability of resisting and changing corruption at the end.
                      That gives me hope because I'd rather see this kind of awareness than Tadjikisyan and Azerbaijan, where population is aware only 1/4 of what's going on.
                      Also, before trying to use that chart to blame the population (like it has been happening in this forum lately in a spirit of "Armenia is good, it's the population that's no good) one has to see that being at war and in geostrategic quagmire that Armenia is, we should never be in that corruption list and level at all.
                      The efforts to make everyone accept level of corruption in order to help rulers is wrong.
                      And yes, this oligarchs in power came to it's positions and wealth with African stile mafious murder, corruption and robbery of the nation's wealth starting 26 years ago. People have memory longer that 10 months. That dot represents the awareness of who today's rulers are and how they came to be.
                      Anybody trying to convince that Samvel Alexanian, who has monopoly over too many consumer products over which mostly does not pay taxes and shamelessly declares that he does not own any businesses repeatedly ( meaning most of his businesses are in shadow) while being a deputat in parliament is only a perception, I say good luck.
                      Last thing to say is, instead of arguing and trying to shut down corruption criticism here, you guys should go and convince people in Armenia that their opinion about corrupt mafia rulers is only a bad perception. That they are actually living much better, wealthier and happier than they think.
                      Maybe you will stop emigration that way.
                      But if this is to keep government out of harms way, it's not necessary.
                      This oligarchs and rulers are going to be there for a long long time. Nothing can change that, looks like.
