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.

  • Recognition of Armenian Genocide by USA

    Well, it seems that there is another attempt to recognize the Genocide in America, but of course the pro-Turkish politicians and companies which are a majority in US are doing everything to stop it.

    When one comes to think about it, the US is actually very anti-Armenian. If there wasn't that very large Armenian diaspora, US would not even care about Armenia and help Azeri/Turkish countries only. The Turkish/Azeri diaspora in US is very small compared to the Armenian one and still US is much larger supporter of them.

    The anti-Armenian activities is also done by the very powerful xxxish lobby which pretty much controls what US does. And since Israel and Turkey love each other the xxxs do everything to harm us. I think the real enemy is apparent and that is the US-Israel-Turkey alliance that has been pressuring and doing anti-Armenian activities for years.

    I for one have lost all hope for US and for a long time because of this never supported US, because of how US supports Turkey and kisses its ass. And the same way US will never pass Armenian Genocide recognition, doesn't matter what we do.

    Re: Recognition of Armenian Genocide by USA

    It's not that the US is "anti-" Armenian ... Put yourself in US's shoes ... Armenia and Armenians really mean nothing to the large picture and in the long run. We just tend to think way too highly of ourselves. There is no real incentive (other than the highly overrated humanitarian/truth aspects of the issue) for US to try to push Turkey on this issue.

    The basic fact is that US and Israel REALLY need Turkey on their good side in the region so all this Armenian Shmarminian stuff is entirely irrelevant to what is currently going on in the world.

    Also it really doesn't matter if US passes something or not. Facts are facts and they are indisputed by anyone who has half a brain and is not a Turkish minion.
    this post = teh win.

      This is the sae truth. It's still important to show how it is complete and utter bs that the u.s. is the beacon of the world, and this great promoter of human rights. It is in fact no such thing.
      For the first time in more than 600 years, Armenia is free and independent, and we are therefore obligated
      to place our national interests ahead of our personal gains or aspirations.

        Subjugate moral convictions to interests, forget a genocide perpetrated almost a century ago, and still claim guardianship of morality in the world.

        70 percent of all US supplies including troops in Iraq and Afghanistan either transition through Turkish airspace or on land from Incirlik airbase.
        At the moment the relations between turkey and Israel has taken a turn for the worst since I have been around and I donít see it getting better soon which might end in our favor.

        Regardless, we must keep pushing for this.............even just as a matter of principle, and being a pain in the ass.

          The only genocide the US Congress should be discussing is the genocide of the American Indians. According to Ward Churchill, a professor of ethnic studies at the University of Colorado,
          the reduction of the North American Indian population from an estimated 12 million in 1500 to barely 237,000 in 1900 represents a "vast genocide . . . , the most sustained on record."
          I doubt if there's even a single politican (of non-Armenian origin) in the US that is sincere about the AG. Shameless vote buying and fund raising is the name of the game.

            Who cares? What does it do for Armenians if the U.S recognizes it? Nothing. Even talking about it is a waste of resources, of which we have VERY little.

                  Obama Administration Urges Congress to Wait on Armenian Genocide Resolution
                  AP

                  The Obama administration is urging Congress to hold off on a resolution declaring the Ottoman era killing of Armenians as genocide.

                  WASHINGTON -- The Obama administration is urging Congress to hold off on a resolution declaring the Ottoman era killing of Armenians as genocide.

                  The House of Representatives Foreign Affairs Committee was scheduled to vote on the resolution Thursday, and appeared likely to endorse it.

                  But White House spokesman Mike Hammer said Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton had spoken with the committee's chairman, Democratic Rep. Howard Berman, on Wednesday and indicated that such a vote would jeopardize reconciliation talks between Turkey and Armenia.

                  The move breaks a campaign promise by President Obama to brand the killings genocide.

                  Turkey, a NATO ally with a pivotal role for U.S. interests in the Middle East and Afghanistan, has warned the resolution could jeopardize U.S-Turkish cooperation and set back negotiations aimed at opening the border between Turkey and Armenia.

                    Recognition would be a start in the right direction but i agree that our resources should be put to better use in strengthening our country and building bridges between it and the diaspora. No one will give us justice-we have to earn it.
