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.

    I like the term "economic xxxx" by the way.

    We agreed. I'm trying to do my best for english language, I have many more things to say in french.
    "C'était un des principes fondamentaux de la doctrine Gradgrind que toute chose devait être payée. Personne ne devait jamais, en aucun cas, rien donner à qui que ce fût sans compensation. La gratitude devait être abolie et les bienfaits qui en découlent n'avaient aucune raison d'être. Chaque pouce de l'existence des humains, depuis la naissance jusqu'à la mort, devait être un marché réglé comptant. Et s'il était impossible de gagner le ciel de cette façon, cela signifiait que le ciel n'était pas un lieu régi par l'économie politique et que l'on n'avait rien à y faire."

          All of you make extremely good points, except shahumyan (i doubt that you are an armenian). To give in a little of my imput, there are youths leaving Armenia to come to America for the reason that they don't want to go to the Army. My father served there, both my grandfathers and all my Uncles! They have repeatedly told my horrifying stories. Now if they want to leave why would others want to go? Although i believe in stnading up for your country, and as much as a citizen you may be to another country....you have Armenian blood!

          Tigran, my mom thinks you are an extremely smart person. (i was reading when she walked in and read with me and loved what you had to say) Baron, i agree with many of the points you made, especially about education! I think in order to do this it is going to take a lot of money, patience, and a lot of changing things around! So it will probably take years, if it ever happens.

            i dont think anyone could say yes to no to nike, yes to IT, i thinkits fair to say capitalism doesnt work like that.

            Airies,
            wtf, you think in such a nostalgic manner, people first idedntify themselves with their material conditions, then nationality.

            I am hapy, and i am quite happy i am, however im not particularly bothered, my first priorities are a) mankind b) working class c) armenian culture

              Setting up and enforcing laws and regulations about minimum wage, working conditions, etc, would prevent the establishment of sweatshops. What's so unachievable there?


              As for nostalgia....anyone with a communist party of Armenia insigna for an avatar should be in no position to speak.

                Danzig, the avatar is nostalgic, however im not using it for anything important in the political life of people, rather just a sweet reminder for me

                as for restrictions, basically, as Armenia lost its independance (to capitalist institutions such as IMF, WTO) it cant do this, and even if it could it would suffer cuts in aid, in development, and in research. Hayeri dzerkerker gab en dvel irants meshgi hedev.
                What you think enger? im interestedd to se your reply

                  I think the IMF and the World Bank should be toppled and the rich nations of the world should pay THEIR debt to the poorer ones, instead of considering about making it easier for the poorer countries to pay their alleged debts.

                  Realistically however...

                  I believe our government CAN make a strong case and gain support from institutions such as the UN (for whatever it's worth) against the implantation of companies like Nike. But, this is a lot of effort wasted I believe, as Nike (or other such companies) hasn't ever sought to do anything in Armenia, and it would surprise me immensely if it ever did.

                  The key to Armenia's economic development is, I'll say it once more, diasporan business ventures. That is ALL.

                    i dont want to be an argumentative bastard, but to be successful in capitalism, i dont think u can limit yourself to only one type [diasporan] investment. All the banks are in the hands of the russians except HSBC for example. Diasporan business isnt that big to support armenia, and even when they come, they donteven pay their xxxxin taxes!

                      Diasporan business is a richness that hasn't been developped yet. As for not paying taxes, I will have to question your sources, as I have heard and seen otherwise.

                      I'm not saying it's the ONLY way, but it's the most efficient way to get economic growth, without being dependant on foreigners.
