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.

  • Global Warming

    I think by now it is clear that global warming is having a huge impact on our world. The superstorm raging across the eastern seaboard now is one of the many unprecedentet weather events which have never before been recorded nor witnessed previosly. I have felt the effects of global warming perhaps more then most people because i am a avid icefisherman and i have witnesses the disappearence of safe ice in michigan. We used to have about three months of safe ice here and that has not happened in over a decade with only 2 weeks of safe ice last year(also unprecedented). What pisses me off is that global warming was never even mentioned in any of the presidential debates by either candidate nor the media people, instead what we heard over and over again was more oil, gas, and coal.. There seems to be no limits as to the dept ones head can reach inside ones a-hole. This isuue has been swept under the rug at our own peril and i just wanted to bring it back out for discussion so that the subject can be revived.

      The offspring of forefathers who killed Indians in the name of progress surely aren't going to stop progress because of some bad weather. Whatever happened to that whole ozone layer thing? What happened to acid rain? In a few years, nobody will remember climate change either.

        Re: Global Warming

        The term global warming was abandoned for "climate change." Obama hasn't mentioned it? I don't recall them discussing it in the debates, but there's been no other discussion? They are talking about clean energy, wind power, electric cars, etc. though which are related.

        In just a few years there won't be any ice at the poles. I guarantee we'll be talking a whole lot MORE about climate change then than we are now. Especially in LA when we have to don our scuba gear to swim to work.

        ------------------

        You can go to the NCSE website and educate yourselves about climate change. It's an excellent resource with scholarly sources.

          This will allow easier access to the arctic oil. Ice breakers will no longer be needed (breaking up large pieces of arctic ice into smaller ones speeds up the process of eliminating the ice).

          People will migrate from the areas affected by climate change to safer areas of the planet to survive. You won't be talking about it, you'll be living it and will be in the past.

            Re: Global Warming

            What is happening is scary as it is but there could be much worst things coming our way. We can expect more unprecedented severe storms, drought, cities swollowed up by the oceans..but the ice melting into the oceans is going to ulter the weather in unpredictable ways. We may be on our way to another ice age or mass desertification but nobody seems to care. I remember when Bush junior doomed the Keyoto climate talks-i was like wtf is going on like how can you pass up an opportunity to do something when the whole world was ready to take action. If i was an alien looking upon humanity i think i would be glad that such a reckless lifeform is doomed to extinction. A last minute effort is not going to fix this problem and it may already be too late. What pisses me off is that we recognized the problem-saw the solution-but failed to act because of xxxxin greed.

              Its okay, water will become a scarcity and Armenia will come to rule the world with our unlimited water supply.

              In all seriousness, its unbelievable how dumb the American public is that basic scientific facts like this can't even be mentioned in a public debate.

                I think it is actually too late for the ice caps. It's melting way faster than the estimates. It won't kill all life and maybe not forever, but either ice age or desertification probably would result in the extinction of our species among nearly all others. It's gotten to the point that it's no longer fun for scientists (geologists, (astro)physicists, climatologists, etc.) to talk about the end of the world and such because it's gotten too real. When they're asked about the most likely threat to our survival its always climate change now. It gets tense and uncomfortable and everyone just wishes they could go back to talking about the zombie apocalypse instead.

                Yes, it's incredibly sad. The anti-intellectualism will kill the human race.

                  I do not think this will kill the human race but it will kill many other life forms and will surely kill many of us but it won't lead to our extinction. Humans are very adaptable animals and will survive this climate change but it will alter our thinking and the way we do things and look at the world. I guess i am interested to see how humanity evolves to adept to this challenge but this is not going to be pretty. I was watching Romney ducking questions about what he said earlier about how the government should not get involved in disaster relief and that coorporations will step up and take care of it instead.. I have not seen exxon mobile rescuing anyone yet. This Hurricane along with this climate change is an example of an economic term called negative externality which i will be discussing in my class this week. While i try to educate people about important things-i feel at times like i am climbing the tallest mountain in the world an inch at a time because there is so much bs and misinformation already rooted in peoples minds.

                    Re: Global Warming

                    Haykakan are you suggesting that mankind is bringing about an ice age that has happened several times in earths history without humans even in existence?

                    I think the Western world is trying its best to switch to clean energy.....I don't think there is another choice in the long run and how reserves run out, it is something that will happen we like it or not, but I personally don't think events such as the super storm "Sandy" that we see now is the cause of human influence on earths atmosphere.

                    What you are witnessing now in eastern US is what is called a perfect storm. You have a very large CAT 1 (lowest lever btw but big) hurricane that mixed with a super cooled low coming down from north and they collided over populated area. In Aviation weather that is the worst recipe for FTSU.
