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.


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.

  • Armenian girl killed in car accident in Montreal

    She was killed by a hit and run, from a guy with a suspended license, speeding. He (Robert Bélanger) is himself half Armenian, and went to the same school as the girl. The girl's older brother was a classmate of the hit and runner back in high school.

    This took place not far from my house... It is very sad to hear that someone's life would end in such an awful tragic way. I hope that Robert Belanger gets the punishment he deserves.

    Though I did not know that the two families knew each other.

          I heard about this from my priest at church this weekend... May she rest in peace.
          I was taught how to think.

              This shows that everyone no matter who they are, should remember that driving is a
              privilege and not a right. That everyone has a family and everyone belongs to someone.
              Even if they are a orphan. That person is a child of the Lord.

              It must be very difficult for the parents. Especially the mother. That the two families
              know each other with the relations in school, this is especially more difficult and
              painful for the parents. It is a small world and people need to keep this in mind.

              Life is precious and so are people. May she rest in peace and may her family find
              strength in the Lord.

                Indeed, rest in peace.

                Mourning friends, classmates attend court to honour teen killed in hit-and-run

                Updated: Tue Sep. 07 2010 4:21:00 PM


                Dozens of friends and classmates of a teenager whose life was cut short by a car crash marched from their school to the Laval courthouse on Tuesday.

                Dressed all in black, they wanted to show their support for the family of 15-year-old Ronia Mansourian, as the man accused of killing her in a hit-and-run appeared for a bail hearing.

                "If it's hard for us, imagine for her family," said one girl. "We know they need the support so we organized this and decided to come here and help them out."

                Friends of Ronia are also actively showing their support for her family on a Facebook page.

                The students, surrounded by police cars, walked in the street from Saint Maxime high school to the courthouse near Highway 15 and St. Martin.

                At the courthouse they met Ronia's family, who leaned on each other as they walked into court.

                Extra security

                Police and extra security brought into the courthouse to make sure the students did not get out of hand were unnecessary.

                "It's only for their security," said Nathalie Lorrain of the Laval police.

                People were carrying large photos of Ronia, and while many were visibly upset and angry, nobody took any direct action against the accused.

                The students sat quietly as Robert Belanger was led into the courtroom, although several gasps of shock were heard.

                Belanger's hearing lasted only a few seconds, as lawyers agreed to postpone his bail hearing until Sept. 17.

                The accused kept his back to the crowd and sobbed profusely as his lawyers requested the postponement.

                "We have to prove he's dangerous. We'll submit all our arguments on the 17th, but not right now," said prosecutor Jean-Pascal Boucher.

                Teen's death

                Ronia was struck by a car on Sept. 3 on Levesque Blvd. as she was on her lunch break from school. The collision hurled her into a city bus that had stopped on the narrow road to let her cross.

                The driver of the hit-and-run vehicle sped off, and roughly 12 hours later, 22-year-old Robert Belanger turned himself into the police.

                Ronia died the next morning of her injuries.

                Belanger faces charges of dangerous driving causing death, and leaving the scene of an accident.

                Bail difficult

                Recent court cases have demonstrated that drivers accused of hit and run are unlikely to get bail. Of note in Belanger's case are his prior convictions for theft, drug possession, and leading police on a high speed case, the fact he was driving with a suspended licence, and is currently out on bail while awaiting trial for fraud.

                "It was frustrating for me to have him standing there, pretending he was very emotional and sorry, but it's not his first crime," said Ronia's aunt Marie Tatazian at the courthouse.

                If convicted, Belanger faces life in prison.
