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.

          Turkey accuses US of 'aggressive actions' over brawl
          http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-40003575

          Turkey has blamed US officials for "aggressive and unprofessional actions" and "security lapses" during President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's visit last week.
          The Turkish foreign minister said it had summoned the US ambassador, John Bass, and asked for an investigation.
          During the key visit, a brawl erupted between protesters and Turkish security personnel, injuring 11 people.
          Police called it a "brutal attack" on protesters, but Turkey blamed the violence on pro-Kurdish demonstrators.
          Meanwhile, US State Department spokesman Heather Nauert said "the conduct of Turkish security personnel... was deeply disturbing".
          "The State Department has raised its concerns about those events at the highest levels," she added.

          US summons Turkish envoy over brawl
          The incident happened on Tuesday outside the Turkish ambassador's residence in Washington, hours after Mr Erdogan met US President Donald Trump.
          Video footage of the clash showed men in suits charging past police to kick and punch protesters.
          "A written and verbal protest was delivered due to the aggressive and unprofessional actions taken, contrary to diplomatic rules and practices, by US security personnel," the Turkish foreign minister said in a statement.
          The "lapses of security", it added, "were caused by the inability of US authorities to take sufficient precautions at every stage of the official programme".


          Media captionInside President Erdogan's US visit that turned violent
          US officials have already summoned the Turkish ambassador over the violence, which was described by Washington police as a "brutal attack on peaceful protesters".
          But the Turkish embassy said the demonstrators were linked to the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), and had aggressively provoked Turkish-Americans gathering to greet the president. They in turn had acted in self-defence.
          The incident drew an outcry among US lawmakers, and Senator John McCain called for the Turkish envoy to be expelled.

                    Georgia ex-leader Saakashvili plans defiant return to Ukraine

                    • 28 July 2017
                    • BBC
                    Image copyrightREUTERS Image captionMikheil Saakashvili introduced free market reforms in Georgia before losing an election in 2012
                    The former Georgian President, Mikheil Saakashvili, says he will go back to Ukraine to mobilise his supporters there, in defiance of Kiev's decision to strip him of Ukrainian citizenship.

                    Mr Saakashvili moved to Ukraine in 2013 and served as governor of Odessa under President Petro Poroshenko. Both have championed pro-Western market reforms.

                    But the two men have since fallen out.

                    Last year Mr Saakashvili said corrupt oligarchs close to Mr Poroshenko were blocking the reforms.

                    Speaking to the BBC's Newshour programme from New York, Mr Saakashvili, who heads an opposition party in Ukraine, said Mr Poroshenko was trying to remove his most serious opponent.

                    However, according to opinion polls, Mr Saakashvili's Movement of New Forces (Rukh) has less than 2% support among Ukrainians.

                    Accused of corruption in his native Georgia, he lost his Georgian citizenship in 2015 after becoming a Ukrainian national. Mr Saakashvili rejects the Georgian corruption charges as politically motivated.

                    According to the Ukrainian authorities, he put false information on his citizenship registration form in 2015.

                    He told the BBC that he would strive to "get rid of the old corrupt elite" in Ukraine. But he denied any ambition to become Ukrainian president.

                    Mr Saakashvili said corrupt Ukrainian oligarchs were annoyed by his campaign to clean up the economy, which has been stagnating for years.

                    "I'll do my best to return to Ukraine," he said, calling President Poroshenko "extremely unpopular".

                    The former Georgian president has close ties with some US politicians, but said he would not seek asylum in the US, despite the risk now of being stateless.

                    Last year, he resigned as the Odessa governor, expressing fury at rampant corruption, and launched his political party in Ukraine.

                    In a statement (in Ukrainian) on Wednesday evening, Ukraine's migration service said that "according to the Constitution of Ukraine, the president takes decisions on who is stripped of Ukrainian citizenship based on the conclusions of the citizenship commission".

                    It did not provide the exact reason, but stated that this could be done if a Ukrainian national acquired citizenship of another country or submitted false documents.

                      Citizens in Azeri exclave told to read Hemingway

                      By News from Elsewhere......as found by BBC Monitoring
                      Image copyrightJOHN F. KENNEDY LIBRARY Image captionA middle-aged man and the sea: Ernest Hemingway is among Nakhchivan's essential reads
                      The leader of the landlocked Azeri exclave of Nakhchivan has published a list of 30 books that he says all citizens should read.

                      The republic's supreme assembly chairman Vasil Tabilov drew up the list in order to foster patriotism and widen youngsters' outlook, the Minval.az news websitereports.

                      As well as classics from Azeri and medieval Eastern authors, the list includes Western authors such as Jack London and Ernest Hemingway, with "The Old Man and the Sea" coming in at number 20.

                      Top of the list is former Azeribaijan President Heydar Aliyev's snappily titled "The appeal of the national leader Heydar Aliyev to the people of Azerbaijan in connection with the new year 2001, a new era and the third millennium",

                      Scholars of political sciences will be unsurprised to find that Machiavelli's "The Prince" is also included. Will there be spot checks?

                      Mr Tabilov's decree means that a set of the 30 works should be sent to every school, library and cultural institution in Nakhchivan, but the very idea of "must read" has lead to some social media users asking if there would be spot checks.

                      "Great initiative. I would spread this order throughout Azerbaijan. Those who don't read these books should be fined!" JamNews reported one person as saying.

                      While most appreciated the thoughtful nature of the list, some readers were also confused by the inclusion of Maurice Maeterlinck's "The Life of the Bee", assuming the Belgian poet's philosophical work on the social structure of the hive to be an instruction manual on beekeeping.

                      Nakhchivan is an autonomous part of Azerbaijan, separated from the rest of the country by Armenia. Former president Heydar Aliyev, father of current Azeri leader Ilham Aliyev, was born in Nakhchivan which, declared independence from the Soviet Union in 1990.
