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:

- vulgar
- hateful
- harassing
- personal attacks
- obscene

You also may not:
- post images that are too large (max is 500*500px)

- 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.

  • Is Iran Developing an Azeri Problem?

    One of my greatest fears is the manipulation of the Azeri population of Iran by outsiders. In my opinion, the current development (see below) is quite serious and can have dire consequences for the future of Iran. Needless to say this issue is a matter of great importance to us Armenians. My queston: Are there saboteurs within Iran today working towards sectarian violence in order to weaken the central authorities?

    Iran's Azeri minority protests mocking cartoon

    TEHRAN, May 22 (Reuters) - Members of Iran's Azeri minority hurled stones in violent protests on Monday, enraged by a newspaper cartoon they said insulted them, a semi-official news agency and a witness said.

    The ILNA labour news agency said thousands protested in the northwestern city of Tabriz and that police used teargas to try to disperse the crowd. The exact number of demonstrators could not be confirmed.

    A resident said furious protesters threw stones at banks and smashed windows.

    "They are angry because ... we (Azeris) are insulted by a cartoon," Soraya, a 40-year-old mother, told Reuters by telephone from Tabriz.

    The cartoon, which appeared in Friday's edition of the official Iran newspaper, showed a boy repeating the Persian word for xxxxroach in different ways, while a xxxxroach in front of the boy asked "What?" in Azeri.

    The Azeris of northwestern Iran speak a language related to Turkish. Although Azeris have many luminaries among Iran's commercial elite, Iran's majority Persians mock them as stupid in their jokes.

    The conservative Siyasat-e Rouz daily on Sunday said a crowd of Azeris had set fire to Iran's local office in the city of Orumiyeh, where Azeris make up the majority of the population. They account for about 25 percent of the overall population.

    ILNA said the protesters chanted slogans against the cartoon in Azeri outside the provincial governor's office, which some of the crowd pelted with stones.

    "The police are carrying out their responsibilities. The gathering in Tabriz is illegal," an Interior Ministry official, identified only as Razavi, said, according to ILNA.

    He added police were trying to restore order.

    Earlier on Monday, some students at a university in Tehran also protested against the cartoon.

    Some ethnic groups, including in Arab and Kurdish areas of Iran, have complained about unfair treatment from Tehran but the Azeri community usually has few complaints.

    pffff, too much politics. Why don't you just relax and take it easy, I think sometimes it is a good thing to be an ordinary stupid fat American who watch TV shows, eat fast food, behave as if like Hollywood films and unaware of the place of Germany on the world map instead of producing conspiracy theories and nationalistic garbages.

          It is a shame that the Azeris of Iran, who are in many ways different from the Azerbaijanis, have been manipulated by Pan-Turanists like Shehreganli.

                  Unrest in North Iran Directed by Baku, Ankara and Washington

                  PanARMENIAN.Net

                  What is happening in Iran's northern provinces for over 10 days is apparently directed not only by Baku and Ankara, but also Washington, political scientist Levon Melik-Shahnazaryan told a PanARMENIAN.Net reporter. In his words, it should not be forgotten that authors of the notorious cartoon, as well as editor of the Iran newspaper were arrested and apologies are presented to the Turkic speaking population of Iran.

                  «However, an «occasion» was invented and there is sort of official ground for discontent. It should not be surprising any more that slogans «Karabakh is our,» «Turkic people are united» and similar ones are heard during rallies,» he remarked.

                  When commenting on the fact of burning the Armenian national flag in Tebriz, the Armenian expert underscored that the incident is one of the directions of the policy of rally participants. «Their major goal is not Karabakh or Armenia. Major goal of rally participants is to tear away the territory, which will be the support for Turan's struggle against Iran,» the expert said.

                    It was probably the brainchild of the people in the Turkish consulate in Tabriz, Iran.
