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.

  • Genocide scholars and court question

    Were there any courts that declared the Armenian genocide to be a genocide?

    Also, I would like to break this guys argument where he says that most experts on the matter like Justin McCarthy for example do NOT agree with 1915 being a "genocide". Unless he is right, which I doubt is true or is what I will hear here, do you know any good sources/names to disprove this?

    Re: Genocide scholars and court question

    No that person is clearly lying. Its like me saying most countries recognize that the Armenian Genocide was a lie and did not happen, just look at Azerbaijan.
    Justin McCarthy is one of a few, handful of "historians" who do not recognize the genocide, all of whom are one way or another connected to the Turkish government, who oppose the almost unanimous consensus among the general historian community.
    Justin McCarthy is an agent of the Turkish government, with heavy ties to various government institutions, and has been thoroughly criticized by various historian for using selective and incomplete facts, distorting facts, and providing biased analysis.

    The International Association of Genocide Scholars has accused him of "severely selective scholarship that grossly distorts history" http://www.voelkermord.at/docs/Schol...nying_IAGS.pdf

    His "work" has been criticized by many historians as a perversion of history, and as propaganda and Turkish nationalistic agenda. He is a member of the Institute of Turkish Studies, which has paid him well over the years

              A Youtube member. I suspect he is a bonehead Turk based on his reply that I derived my question from. I have not looked at his page yet. This is from a video on the new French law about genocide denial.

                Lol, don't give them the respect of responding. especially youtube members, youtube is definitely not the place for sensible discussion, mostly just 5 year olds saying worst insult they can do.
