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.

      I think it was Atlanta Georgia where the police raided a drug dealers house and found a very young lion,tiger,and bear.
      All mistreated. The bear had a harness on since a small cub and as he grew the harness became embedded into his skin.
      They were all in bad shape.
      If one googles or YouTube's --- the bear,tiger & lion perchance one might see what isn't seen.

        when it comes to animal abuse, there are sick bastards everywhere. but unfortunately, in armenia, since many of the perpetrators ARE the government, there is a lot more of this sort of sick personal zoos. I'm not a big fan of the super activism, and criticizing all thing without understanding context and background, but this is one issue thats just beyond defending. Beyond the suffering of the animals, these bastards feed some of these animals more ten kilos of meat per day, while people can't afford to feed their kids bread.

            We should do this in Armenia.

            An Iranian insurance company has started compensating herders and ranchers for Persian Leopard attacks as a voluntary environmental measure, as has a Russian company, for attacks by the country’s own Amur Leopard and Amur Tiger

            According to Ali Teimouri, Director-General of the Department of Environment Protection and Hunting and Fishing Management Office of Iran, "The decision is part of attempts to improve the conditions for endangered species and as an action of priority in a national protection scheme for the Persian Leopard; the insurance policy is the product of months of hectic work of examination of different insurance schemes, which was finalized Wednesday," Mehr News Agency reported.

            The Persian Leopard is an endangered animal, but shepherds keep killing it to protect livestock. The insurance policy is aimed to prevent them from doing so, as people will now be aware they will be compensated in case of a leopard attack.

            "Once the insurance plan goes into effect, people who suffer losses caused by leopards will be appropriately compensated," Teimouri said. "This is a highly laudable action which the insurance company has voluntarily been involved in; the responsibility still lies with the general public to initiate proper actions of other sort to protect country's natural national resources."

            A similar initiative has been taken in Russia, announced by the Chief of the Presidential Administration of Russia, Sergey Ivanov. According to Ivanov, wild cats in the Russian Far East have increased their population in the past few years, thanks to environmental protection initiatives. This has led to more frequent attacks on livestock by the Amur Leopard and Amur Tiger.

            "One of the largest Russian insurance companies has volunteered to insure the damage caused by leopards and tigers. The maximum insurance amounts to up to two [$28,150]," said Ivanov, as reported by PrimaMedia.

            Predator attack insurance is a common practice in certain regions, where the risk of wild animal attacks on livestock or people, including tourist groups, is present. India, for example, established the practice in 2002, and neighboring Pakistan has records of cattle – and human – insurance against such attacks going back to 1998.
