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.

  • "Gnome dictator" Iranian Armenians hold protest in front of the Iranian Embassy

    Iranian Armenians held a protest today in front of the Iranian Embassy in Armenia.

    video of the protest

    The youth with green flags and closed faces are expressing their protest against the results of the Iranian elections and the assaults against citizens.

    "Where did my vote go?" "We don't want a gnome dictator", screamed protesters in the park near the Iranian Embassy.

    "I voted for Musavi here at the embassy and he won 1,200 votes. Where did my vote go?" one Iranian young man told "A1+". Let us mention that the protesters were mainly students and had closed their faces to avoid pressure.

    "The most dangeorus thing is their deportation. They will not only be deported, but also arrested as activists," said an Iranian-Armenian student.

    Participants of the protest said that they will hold a strike and will stay in front of the embassy as long as it takes for justice to be restored.

    "We keep in touch with our parents back home and the situation is complicated there too, but we have hope for change," said one female Iranian student.
    Due to budget cuts the light at the end of the tunnel has been turned off.

      The term Iranian-Armenians can be misleading. It's not Armenians in Iran but Iranians in Armenia who are protesting. Looks like the source is A1+ (pro-opposition media outlet in Armenia)

        Iranians Continue Yerevan Embassy Protests

        16.06.2009
        Elina Chilingarian

        Several dozen Iranians rallied outside the Iranian embassy in Yerevan for the second day on Tuesday to protest against the official results of Friday’s disputed election that gave victory to the incumbent President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
        The protesters, most of them university students, also condemned the deaths of seven fellow Iranian opposition supporters who were shot dead during a massive anti-government demonstration in Tehran on Monday.

        Organizers said the demonstration was part of worldwide street protests staged by Iranian expatriates supporting Mir Hossein Musavi, the main opposition presidential candidate. The small crowd chanted slogans and held banners accusing the Iranian government of rigging the vote. An Armenian police unit kept it from getting too close to the embassy building.

        “Between 2,000 and 2,500 of our citizens voted here [in Armenia] and 70-80 percent of them voted for Musavi,” one young man told RFE/RL. “The same happened all over Iran.”

        In contrast to Monday’s rally, many protesters wore dark sunglasses and medical facemasks. “We want to make sure they don’t recognize us by face,” one of them explained. “Why? Because our state is such that we may get in trouble. And we, the students living here, don’t want to have problems.”

        Other protesters claimed that Iranian embassy officials phoned Iranians living in Armenia the previous night and warned them against attending further protests against their government. “But we still decided to come here because young people in Iran have been killed,” said one young woman.

        Meanwhile, Iran's top legislative body, the Guardian Council, ruled out annulling Friday’s election on Tuesday as Musavi supporters planned to hold another big rally in the capital. According to Reuters news agency, the council said it is only prepared to order a partial recount of votes.

        Armenia, which maintains close political and economic ties with the Islamic Republic, has recognized the vote results, with President Serzh Sarkisian sending a congratulatory message to Ahmadinejad at the weekend.

          Ahmenadinejad is good for Armenia. Political instability will be desastrous for Armenian international politics.

              It's not about Ahmadinejad. People are sick of this diabolical, horrific, murderous, torturing, stoning, intolerant regime. For thirty years we have been bereft of the most basic rights like that of freedom to choose what to wear, what to eat or drink, what music to listen to, what films to watch, what to read, what to say, to sing, to dance, who to talk to or walk with, etc. Men and women are separated everywhere. It's like a horror science fiction, the most incredibly dictatorial tyranny ever and that in this day and age. Add to that the ten times weaker purchase power compared to the days of the Shah in a huge country that floats on oil and gas among other things.
              A country named Azerbaijan north of the Arax River NEVER existed before 1918
              A nation called "Azeri" NEVER existed throughout human history

                I agree………..good to see your post Delavar. Persian news here states that they are shutting down all Iranian news media from reporting on the demonstrations and possibly any communication to the outside. A counter demonstration has been started and the supreme leader might call for a "bogus" recount of the votes, but as I hear it Mousavi suggests a revote.
                Keep us posted if you can Valak. This could turn bigger than people realize.

                Good luck.

                BTW, I would never back such an oppressive regime…………….even if it appeared to be in the benefit of the Armenian Nation.

                  Hi there how goes it? You know I know that they are pro-Armenia and yet the only ones that are good neighbours to us; but since I don't live there and I can't share your everyday ups and downs with that regime; I sympathize with you and I'm sorry for you guys. To what you are saying here reminded me of a Sally Field movie that I saw years ago when she was married to an Iranian with a little girl, moved to Iran from the States and she was constantly harrassed both by her husband, his family and the people (how to eat, what to drink, what kind of head band she must wear all the time, etc. etc. etc.) It was awful if it was true and not a propaganda by the J'ewish America. Though you're saying similar things. Anyways please keep us posted Hekt jan and good luck bud.

                    Those are called American sanctions. Cuba knows what that's all about, they're still driving around in cars from the 1950's.
