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.

    UK - Prince Charles greets Armenian President Serzh Sarkisian and

    Abbey, London, 28Oct2015.

    .....

    One of the likely reasons why Queen Elizabeth's heir apparent took
    part in the Westminster Abbey service is his close rapport with Armen
    Sarkissian, the Armenian ambassador to the United Kingdom who has
    lived in London since the early 1990s. Sarkissian was instrumental in
    Charles' 2013 visit to Armenia.

    Statements by the press offices of President Sarkisian and Westminster
    Abbey did not list any senior British government officials among those
    who attended the service. Their apparent absence reflected the current
    and previous British governments' refusal to recognize the Armenian
    genocide.

    I remember his first appearance on the scene in London during the days of the independence euphoria.

    He was also very motivational personality, in the patriotic sense.
    London embassy was the first Armenian embassy post soviet collapse and independence which also contributed to that euphoria.

    We also found out ( proudly) that he is an astrophysicist.

    Star gazer to you and me.

    Some habits die hard.


    PS.
    I wish we understood that personal friendship gets you nowhere in politics beyond a polite hello and a smile.
    The British or any mature and professional government do not give any value to an individual friendship.
    Their whole political infrastructure, civil servants, pursues its national interests.

    The politicians are the articulators of those policies not the decision makers but the executioners.
    If the political establishment find themselves in a contradictory situation like in this case they will push forward the Royalty, Church leaders or any other entity of protocol to create excitement like “ isn’t it exciting that Prince Charles attended church with our President. “ or " we got couple of paragraphs in so and so paper ..."

    Please give me some space I am going to puke.

    Politics is not about the pursuit of morality nor what's right or wrong
    Its about self interest at personal and national level often at odds with the above.
    Great politicians pursue the National interest and small politicians personal interests

        LOL

        Only her Majesty's subjects are Knighted.
        Non subjects receive honorary knighthoods and protocol expects them not to be addressed by the SIR title.

        As far as I can remember Ronald Regan received an honorary knighthood but nobody addressed his as Sir Ronald Regan.

          England has not been pursuing her national interests since that airhead Victoria(spat on her husband's legacy) sold the country. England has not been able to pursue her own interests since the end of the Napoleonic wars when it declared bankruptcy and Rothchild took ownership of that country. Very few countries can honestly claim that they are strong enough to pursue their own national interests.

            Fair point, however when I said national interest I did not have in mind a shepherd grazing his sheep by the hill side.

            I still maintain the national interests are defined and presented to the politician who justify and execute.
            As to who defines and on what criteria this national interest, is colloquially referred to as the establishment.

            Million miles away from the ordinary folk.

              EVGENY KISSIN SAYS WILL NOT PERFORM IN TURKEY UNTIL ANKARA RECOGNIZES ARMENIAN GENOCIDE

              World-known pianist Evgeny Kissin said in an interview with The New
              York Times that he would not perform in Turkey until its government
              acknowledges that the mass murder of Armenians in 1915 was a genocide.

              "I personally believe that if people in such countries learn that some
              musicians refuse to play there because they are dismayed by what their
              rulers do, that will make intelligent-thinking people more aware,"
              he said.

              He hastened to add that he does "not judge or condemn colleagues who
              perform in totalitarian countries. -- it's a personal choice."

              Kissin will perform in a concert devoted to Jewish composers on
              Wednesday at Carnegie Hall.
