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.

The Arabs have far more to fear from Iran and Shia expansion, than the Turks. However they mistrust trust the Turks and are slightly wary of them.

        How can Lebanon be under Muslim occupation when there are Lebanese Muslims as well? Israel bombs the Muslim areas of Lebanon and the first ones on the first boat out of Lebanon are the Christians. If they want to give up their country to a Muslim majority, that's their choice.

        The Gulf Arabs are the ones that fear Iran and Shia "expansion" based on some religious BS that Shi'a are not "true Muslims" (lawl). The Gulf Arabs are also all dictators and have openly embraced Western expansionism (isn't the West more so against Islam than Shi'a Islam? )

          I have heard similar things from a close friend who recently left Syria, whose entire family still resides there. According to his family the Armenian regions are practically untouched by the violence, and much of the violence elsewhere is greatly exaggerated.

            Assad will most likely have to step aside. However Russia will want a orderly transition and they where always going to stand by Syria. As Russia and China are keen to draw a line in the sand and counter Western backed Sunni encroachment. Syria's alignments are anti-western and Syria is to close to Iran. Which places it at odds with Turkey and like Israel Turkey is a threat to Syria. What Syria really needs is greater investment, as like Egypt it has socioeconomic problems.

              The Lebanese, Assyrians and Greeks actually do have have very ancient ties to Iberia. As the Celtiberians mined Silver, Gold and other valuable ores, such as Tin which they traded with Phoenicians and this was the secret of Carthage's great wealth. However the Phoenicians monopoly on trade in the West Mediterranean was broken by Rome (Punic war).

              Whilst the double standards of these people are mind-boggling and they really aren't the sharpest tools in the box. The Sunnis view the Shia as apostates of Islam and it is the duty of these "pious" Sunnis to kill the Shia and basically anything and everything that isn't Sunni.

                  Its a good thing that a established community was destroyed? chances are a good part of those people will go to the west and assimilate within two generations.

                    so you're saying it's better for armenians to have a crappy life in a muslim craphole but stay armenian, than for them to live free and have things they'd never have?
                    BTW,many iraqi armenians went to armenia.

                      It is better for people to leave (or stay) under their own will rather than under the constraints of war. So no, the war in Iraq and its effect on the Armenian community there is not a good thing.
