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.


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.

  • On genocide

    Our genocide is not just a crime against humanity
    but also a tragedy, and tragedy, as defined by
    the Greeks, consists in the downfall or
    destruction of a being who, as a result of a
    weakness (as pride, envy, etc.) breaks a divine
    law or moral precept that leads to terror and

      Re: On genocide

      If we are survivors, why is it that millions of
      us did not survive? I should like to read a book
      by our genocide scholars that emphasizes our
      failings. We study history to learn, not to
      lament and blame.

          REFLECTIONS / Once upon a time I believed –make it, I was brought up to believe—in the fundamental decency of all Armenians. I now find that to have been an absurd conviction worthy of an inbred moron.*Napoleon was a tough hombre. After the Russian expedition, a half-decent normal person would have hanged himself. Something similar could be said of post-Genocide political leadership, whose greatest enemy (according to Zarian) is free speech.*Garabents put it better when he said: “Once upon a time we fought and died for freedom; we are now afraid of free speech.”*Please note that Garabents was neither a terrorist (or freedom fighter) nor an anarchist; but a product of our 1% on friendly terms not only with our bosses, bishops and benefactors in the Diaspora but also our commissars in the Homeland.*Have I said this before? Probably. Make it certainly! Like all organized religions, I believe in the usefulness, importance, and sanctity of repletion: “Our Father who art in heaven,” “Hail Mary," “Allahu akbar!”#

              Our bishops are accountable only to god; our benefactors are accountable only to capital; andour political bosses continue to think ofthemselves as the brains of the people, thusfeeling no need to be accountable to thebrainless. The massacre continues. #

                THEM & US / They ruled over us for 600 years. As their “most loyal subject nation” we fought their wars and provided concubines to their harems.At the turn of the last century they massacred us by the million, stole all our possessions and so far they haven’t paid a single cent in reparations or returned a single square inch of dirt.From World War I they emerged as victors.Now then, my question to you, gentle reader, is: Have you ever heard any one of them brag about how smart they are?#

                  An Armenian says, “Turks are evil and Armeniansgood.” A Turk says, “Armenians are evil andTurks good.” Both are believed by millions oftheir fellow countrymen because a lie that flatters will always enjoy more popularity than a truth that hurts.

                    It has been observed that
                    what holds us together is the Genocide.
                    Does that mean on the day the Genocide is recognized
                    the glue that holds us together will dry up?
