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.

    NEWLY PUBLISHED BOOK IS PROOF OF ARMENIAN GENOCIDE (PHOTO)

    January 17, 2014 | 16:37

    YEREVAN. - The book, entitled The Records of Aleppo, is published
    in Armenia.

    The book presents the photographs which its author, researcher Raffi
    Kortoshian, had taken during his visits to Aleppo, Syria, from 2006
    to 2011, and which show the Armenian presence in this city.

    In Kortoshian's words, this book is especially valuable in the sense
    that these photographs were taken before the Syrian civil war.

    The author of the book also noted, at a press conference on Friday,
    that the photo collection presents 2,500 records 2,000 of which are
    published for the first time.

    "When I visited the cemeteries of Aleppo, I was interested in
    the surnames and the places of birth on the tombstones. And I saw
    places of birth which represented Western Armenia. It was then that
    I conceived the idea that the inscriptions on the tombstones should
    be photographed," Kortoshian said.

    In turn, monument specialist Samvel Karapetyan, who is also chairman
    of the foundation that studies Armenian architecture, stated that
    this book will help the development of historiography, since the work
    is grouped into two parts: references until, and references starting
    from, 1915.

    "It is enough to make a list of the inscriptions of all those
    tombstones of the cemeteries of Aleppo to understand how people
    found refuge in Aleppo after 1915; this only proves the fact of the
    [Armenian] Genocide," Karapetyan noted, in particular.

      In the late 1990s I attempted to make a film about the Armenian Genocide that would have culminated in an Aleppo graveyard. I remember that the Syrian Armenian I went there with was incapable of understanding what I was trying to do with the graveyard, failing completely to see the visual and metaphorical impact that these graves, with the birth places on them from all corners of Turkey, would make on a viewer. Same for the AGBU, who refused funding. It's good to see that someone else has at last understood their importance - but it is in a very limited circulation "by Armenians for Armenians"-type book so the impact on the wider AG narative will be minimal.

        Yes the impact will be minimal just like all the other clear evidence of genocide. It will be minimal because the media wishes it to be minimal, because the powers of the day wish it to be minimal, because it tells a true story which is uncomfortable for those in power to deal with, because xxxs-turks-kurds-germans-english-french.....want it to be minimal. O and the European court ruled that there was not enough evidence to constitute a genocide by the Turkish government thus any evidence to the contrary must be minimized... It has always been astounding to me the size of the mountain of obstacles we Armenians must climb to get justice but then again we are mountain people.

          It will be minimal because Armenians seem to like things the way they are - they can continue to produce their AG propaganda, safe in their belief that the "other sides" propaganda is so atrociously false that nobody will care about the lesser failings in their own. Except that nobody believes or has ever seriously believed, the Turkish propaganda - and it only continues to exist because the Armenian response to it has always been so lamentable. And the "other sides" truth (i.e. truthful things produced by anyone who is not Armenian) is far more effective than your propaganda. That's why there are no serious academics of the Armenian Genocide who are "card carrying" Armenians, and much the most advanced and most interesting research on the Genocide is now coming from Turkey. There is also the truth that main purpose of Armenian writing on the Genocide is to be seen by other Armenians and not to inform non-Armenians, whereas the Turkish propaganda is written to be seen by non-Turks.

          There are no mountains other than the ones Armenians have imagined in their heads or have built for themselves to climb (or, rather, not to climb but to just sit at the base of and complain). Of course, Armenians inevitably being obnoxious to any non-Armenians doesn't help in getting people interested in the subject. And there are plenty of people who think being spat upon (or having the risk of being spat on at some time in the future) is worse than the certainty of being politely lied to - so they prefer Turks to Armenians.

            Nah Bell you are wrong and this is becoming a trend with you. Whatever mountain of obstacles we Armenians have or have not created for ourselves - it is a mere hill compared to what the international community has put on our path to justice. Yeh some Armenians are obnoxious but then again if you go on generalizing you can say xxxx about every person on earth. Generalizing is wrong for there are many nonobnoxious Armenians seeking justice to. Even if all of us are obnoxious does that mean obnoxious people are not entitled to justice? Cmon bell you used to produce some interesting post at one time - but hey you know what they say about obnoxious people.. Bell you sure your not one of them obnoxious Armenians?
