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.

  • "Armenia's Allies"

    I deleted this post from the other thread because I beleive it warrants its own thread and discussion.

    Armenia has the largest perception of Russia as a friendly country in the whole post-Soviet territory, according to the latest surveys in today’s 15 independent states of the former USSR.

    The polls conducted by the All-Russian Center of Public Opinion Studies attempted to gauge public sentiments in former Soviet republics regarding their former allied nations that they view as most friendly to them now and that they might want to form a union with in the future.

    According to the results of the studies, 82 percent of citizens in Armenia view Russia as a friendly state, with 16 percent naming Georgia and one percent naming Azerbaijan.

    Only 67 percent of Armenians, however, support Armenia’s forming a union with Russia, while 23 percent see no necessity for that.

    In neighboring Azerbaijan, 39 percent find none of the former Soviet republics, including the Baltic states, are friendly to Azerbaijan. Twenty-one percent of Azerbaijani respondents find that Georgia is a friend, while 20 percent view Ukraine as a friendly nation. More than 30 percent of respondents in Azerbaijan support their country’s joining Turkey and nearly a fourth supports Azerbaijan’s accession to the European Union. Armenia gets no mention as a friendly country in the polls conducted in Azerbaijan, which is the only zero in the whole polls tables.

    A majority of Georgians, nearly 70 percent, consider Ukraine as a friendly state, followed by Azerbaijan and Baltic states. Armenia is viewed as a friendly state by 15 percent of Georgians. Meanwhile, Belarus is viewed as the friendliest country by 48 percent of citizens in Russia. One in three Russians also mention Ukraine and Kazakhstan as friends. Only 18 percent of Russian citizens view Armenia as a friend to their country. In contrast, the three Baltic republics, including Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia, are perceived as the least friendly states in Russia, with each receiving only 4 percent of responses.

    I don't think it does, which is why I'm going to sabotage it.

                  Dude, there was a poll conducted in Russia several years ago that suggested only two percent of Russians (roughly the Armenian percentage in Russia) had a favorable view of Armenians... How reliable are these polls, how are they conducted, who conducts them, who funds them, etc., are anyone's guess. However, sociologically/culturally speaking, Russians for good reason tend to dislike peoples of the Caucasus. So, one can say that we Armenians are guilty by association, and in the case of our mafia and "Rabiz" types, we are also guilty by action... The important factor here, however, is how Russia's politicians, military officials and the intelligentsia see us Armenians. And basing my perception on the high number of prominent Armenians in the Russian Federation, as well as the close strategic relations between the two nations, I suspect that in the realms that really count, high level politicians, military infrastructure and intelligentsia, Armenians are looked upon favorable by Russians. Needless to say, it's obvious why a high number of Armenians view Russia favorably - without a Russian presence in the Caucasus there can be no Armenia... Thus, the poll result suggesting that only 82% of Armenians are pro-Russian is too low, a far as I'm concerned. Having said this, I would also like to say that the 18% of Russians that view Armenians favorably (if true) is relatively speaking quite high. Like I said, it was merely two percent according to another poll not too long ago. If this poll accurate, it means that 18%, approximately twenty million, of Russia's population sees Armenia as their allies. All in all, this is a very good sign. I hope this favorable perception towards Armenians gradually increases in the coming years.

                  For what they are worth, I just found the other poll results. You can see that the current poll results posted by AnatolianTurk is actually very good news:

                  1% of Russians eye Armenia as Russia’s friend during next 10-15 years


                  Russian Public Opinion Research Center (VCIOM) presented information concerning the countries with which Russia will have the friendliest relations and with which it will be on the most inimical terms. Armenia is absent from the list of Russia’s potential enemies, although only 1% of Russians eye Armenia as Russia’s friend during next 10-15 years. 21% of respondents assume that Russia will be on best terms with China within the next 10 to 15 years; and only 3% consider that the relations with this country will be inimical or strained. 12% of respondents name Belorussia and Germany among the friendliest states; 2% of respondents provide a negative forecast in regard to Belorussia, less than 1% think negatively of Germany. Besides Germany, Russians also distinguish France (+6%, -1%) among the countries that are members of the European Union. 6% of respondents mention India as one of the most friendly countries of the next decade, another 6% mention Kazakhstan in this respect (there are practically no negative forecasts). The U.S. mostly evokes negative expectations: although 10% rely on friendship of this country with Russia, nevertheless, those, who assume that the relations between these two countries will rather be hostile or strained, are far more numerous (24%). Georgia occupies the second place in the negative list: 19% of respondents mention it as a potential enemy to Russia (whereas only 1% of respondents expect positive development of relations to take place). Forecasts as far as the Baltic countries are concerned are also rather negative (+1%, -7%). The views of Russians on Ukraine were nearly equally divided (+6%, -7%). Positive forecasts in respect to Russia’s relations with Japan are a little more numerous (+7%, -3%), Great Britain was more likely to be treated negatively (+3%, -7%). As a rule, more attention in Russia’s different federal districts is given to their immediate neighbors. Thus, in the Southern district, hopes that relations between Russia and Ukraine as its immediate neighbor will become friendlier are more frequently expressed than it generally is in Russia on average (11% in the district, 6% average in the country). 29% of respondents in the Far-Eastern district provide positive forecasts in connection with China, cf.: 21% on average in the country. 21% of respondents in the North Western region identify Germany as a friendly country, whereas 12% on average in the country do. On the whole, expectations that Russia’s relations with other countries in 10-15 years will be friendly are more typical than forecasts that these relations will be hostile. Among international organizations the most important world role in the next 5-10 years will be played by the European Union (as 32% of respondents assume), the "Great Eight" and NATO (28-29%). OPEC, WTO, United Nations Organization and UNESCO are considered to be the most influential organizations a little less often (13-17%). The role of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), of the Pacific Forum; the Commonwealth of the independent states (CIS), the Union of Russia and Belorussia, and the also International Olympic Committee seem to respondents to be still less important (5-8%). The All-Russia opinion poll was conducted by VCIOM on August 25-26, 2007. 1600 respondents were interviewed in 153 population areas of 46 regions of Russia. The statistical error does not exceed 3.4%.

                  21% Of Russians Polled By Russian Public Opinion Poll Center Consider Ukraine Enemy Of Russia


                  According to a poll conducted by the all-Russian Center for Study of Public Opinion of Russians, 21% of Russian citizens consider Ukraine an enemy of Russia. Ukrainian News learned this from outcomes of the poll. Respondents were asked to name countries Russia had the most hostile relations. Of those polled, 25% said Russia's enemy was the Untied States, 25% named Georgia, 8% Britain, 6% named Baltic countries, 5% Poland and Estonia, 3% Japan and Latvia, 2% China and Lithiania, 1% Belarus, Germany, Iraq, Korea, France, Afghanistan, Czechnya, Mid east, former republic of the Soviet Union, and the European Union, and 1% were undecided. Meantime, 2% of Russians consider Ukraine a friendly state of Russia. Of those polled, 23% regard China as the best friend of Russia, 17% Germany, 14% Belarus, 9% the United States, 8% Kazakhstan, 7% India, 6% France, 4% countries of the European Union, 3% Bulgaria and Japan, 2% Armenia, Italy, Poland, and former republics of the Soviet Union, 1% Britain, Brazil, Israel, Iran, Spain, Korea, Serbia, Turkey, Finland, countries of South America, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, and countries of the east. Of those polled, 1% said Russia had good relations with all countries and 45% were undecided. The poll was conducted on April 5 and April 6. The center polled 1,600 Russians. The error margin is within 3.4%. As Ukrainian News earlier reported, in April, 25% of Ukrainians polled by the Public Opinion Fund - Ukraine (FOM) said they expected the relations with Russia will improve within eight years.
