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.

Have Armenia adopt a US-like gotv. system, release all govt. control over mass media, untie culture from govt. (starting with religion), and you will see the country prosper. Of course, power-hungry "activists" and "leaders" pretending to be interested in the country's good will avoid this model, as it wouldn't afford them as much power to achieve their own private goals.
    yeah, that way we'll have a higher devorce rate, our kids will start smoking pot at 10 and go shoot their classmates, and teenagers will buzz out babies every hour.
    yeah the American System rules!!!!!!! yeah give me five!

      When speaking about America as a political and economic entity, there are three things to keep in mind: it is the wealthiest, it is the strongest, and it has contributed the most technological advancements. America has the strongest, most advanced army with the most nuclear weapons. The amount of money that America has and churns out is insane. And so many technological advancements have been given to the rest of the world, by America: the airplane, the mass produced car, the telephone, the computer, the internet, the music systems that you use, the television, etc...almost all of the technology, including military technology, that every other country takes for granted was contributed to the world by America. Arguing that it is unsuccessful as a government is foolish. If you want to argue about governments that could be better that have not existed yet, that is fine. If you you want to argue all sorts of minute statistics to compare all the miniscule aspects of different governments, no doubt you will find better aspects in other places. But what I said is irrefutable and shows a successful government, relative to what is currently in existence.

          I am not rating anything. I am merely saying that, based on what I said, you cannot claim that America is not successful as a government and an economy. It is the attitude of it being such a terrible place that I am responding to. As a matter of fact, one of the biggest contributors to any quality-of-life issues that one would debate is the excessive immigration, and that is fueled by the success of the United States as a government and an economy. For someone who does not live in the United States and has never been in the work force here, you are being very presumptuous.

              Yes I have been outside of the US many times, cumstain. People work like xxxxs to get by in Socialistic governments as well. The thing is that any characteristic any population can be represented by a bell curve. If you suggest a system that cannot, then it is not possible. It is that xxxxing simple really.

              And, I did not say that a government just has to exist to be successful. Apparently you like ignoring other people's words. I mentioned specific characteristics that put it on a pedestal above many others. Even if they could be applied to those old empires, which is another discussion, it is all relative. For their time they were. History is trial and error.

              So far you have succeeded in being stupid. Please come back and play again.

                "History is trial and error"

                  That is not an attempt at flexing my brain. Congratulations on one of the most common responses to any insult.

                  "People work like xxxxs to get by in Socialistic governments as well"

                  I have never met anybody who fears taking a holiday that was not agreed to in an employment contract. And they pay for that health care; the taxes are higher. And it is much more difficult to start your own business.

                  -thats absurd, in fact, that doesnt even make any sense. explain.

                  There is nothing absurd about it and it makes complete sense. I was expecting you to make a connection that you do not have the mental capability to make. You were implying that, relative to current political experience, those previous empires could be considered inferior. That was your tone. But the success is relative to its time and you cannot consider your views to be superior. If the characteristics I gave could in fact be applied to those previous governments, then, yes, they were relatively successful and again the U.S. remains so. That is what I was saying. But you are also picking apart a comment that was to be taken in passing.

                    instead of playing adverserial politics, try engaging in explaining your stance, its not a game, theres nothing to win by using your extra-ordinary wit. Its boring

                    As for your knowledge of a neighbour country Cuba, you have none. Education and health are free, and as for being a capitalist trying to start up your own business there, well as its supposed to be a socialist country, no xxxx sherlock, that its hard to start a business, and rightfully so, in fact it should be banned to start private enterprise fullstop.
