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.

    But the European Union isn't corrupt. It's actually a model for governance. Blatantly corrupt countries like Russia, and even the USA, are trying to break down the EU in order to not be challenged. It's easier for them to put influence on individual countries instead of a single, powerful block. Viva la EU.
    Europe has always been a hierarchical society. As an outsider you will always be their bich at the bottom enticed with their fake "we care".
    As far the EU union. They cannot even all pick and speak one language. Many countries entered a la carte, as in some are half in, others kept their currency, some did not want to be part, some want in but not welcome. It is a shet hole with pleasant buildings as facade covered by Chinese tourists and a crumbling decadence behind them. I personally piss on their democracy and existence. Viva Armenia and Viva the New world.

      You'd be a great writer for Breitbart. Europe is by far and large more equitable for everyone than countries like the United States, Russia, or China.

      The most dangerous thing about what you're saying isn't that you have some animosity towards the EU, but doing so, you actually seem to be absolving the real crimes of the Russians and Americans. RU and US leaders love bashing the Europeans. Mostly because the societies that the US and RU represent are repressive and unequal.

          Give me examples of blatant corrupt and lies in the EU. The burden is on you. Imperial goals? Of what? Spreading democracy and human rights? It's funny that this conversation didn't pop up until the Ukrainians decided to get up and join the Europeans. Then the Russians went ballistic. Because the world would soon as be aligned with the "evil" Europeans than the Russian "saviors." Get real.
          The EU isnt corrupt ? Ya, only if your wearing rose colored glasses.
          the EU has been dogging US footsteps like a puppy. One is corrupt but not the other?the EU is a --- PRIME --- source of world corruptiion. Has been since long before its inception. England , France , Germany , Belgium , not corrupt ? Thats truly laughable.

            You are all over the place with countries and logic. Here is simple explanation of EU.
            Watch this video and see the Hospitality of Armenians towards Europeans. Now you do some tourism in EU (cities and countryside) and see how hospitable they are.

                I am well familiar with the EU. Lived in many EU countries and did most of my college years in EU. It is a nice place for young liberals that are trying to figure out life.

                  And yet 500million people seem to do quite well in it. Think about what is going to happen to Russian power once Putin passes. The nation is going to resort back to destroying itself, collapsing. Why? Because Russia refuses to go through what all those evil empires, the British, the French, the Belgian empires all did. They lost their colonies and had no other choice but to integrate with one another, peacefully, democratically.

                  Plus, liberalism is probably what allowed you to spend your younger years enjoying college in the EU. It definitely wasn't the concept of conservatism, which probably would have encouraged you to flip burgers at home and take classes online.

                  Liberalism and Globalization are the way.

                    If what you perceive "do quiet well" the 500 million that spend 80% of their income on food and lodging, you might as well enjoy the EU if you can find a decent slavery job (no burger flipping there). As far Russia, the European elitists have been after Russia for over 400 years trying to rob its natural resources to sustain their elitist lifestyle. Too bad they did not succeed yet. They had their gold period with drunken Yeltsin to take over Russia. Putin knew how to send them back to their "insignificant island". I am not a big fan of Russia, but from all (3) major powers trying to be Armenia's "Protectorate" I will definitely go with Russia.
                    Armenia for EU is just a country that is convenient to run azeri pipelines to keep them functioning.

                    You keep using "Democracy" as if it is universal. Around 80% of a population in most countries of the world are chasing food and their well being. They all live in "Democracy". The part that makes a difference if you are involved in politics or protecting your larger assets/interest than you can keep waving some fictitious "Democracy" flag.

                      The EU has brought some benefits to poorer members by investing in countries on the southern and eastern tiers
                      But politically it is hypocritical, and this is clear in the case of Turkey with which it opened talks for membership while Armenia stayed blockaded
                      The hypocrisy extends to Karabakh whose right of self determination it does not recognize, while wholeheartedly supporting the same for Kosovo
                      Instead of solving its problem of falling birth rates it brings in large numbers of migrants from the third world
