Vreg - because the primary language on the forum is English, I think that it would be better not post only Armenian-language items for cases where there are equivalent English-language sources.

Also, I think that the overall purpose of this thread will be more effective if it can reach a non-Armenian audience (or if those it concerns think it will).
