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.

    MEN & BEASTS / History makes sense only if we assume mankind has been at the mercy of bloodthirsty savages.*We owe wars and massacres not to reasonable men but to systematically moronized charlatans.*Politicians who pretend to know better cannot be said to be guided by reason but by the mindset of cornered rats.*No jackass has ever kicked another jackass to prove God is great.*Life makes sense only if we assume the 1% are a criminal gang like the mafia. The rest is propaganda.*As for men like Socrates, Jesus, and Gandhi: None of them died in bed.#

    Every organized religion is also a critique as well as a rejection of all other organized religions.

      The unspoken aim of the 1% is the systematic moronization of the 99%.

        ON A QUINTESSENTIALLY ARMENIAN ABERRATION*************************************** We have all met the arrogant ignoramus who, justbecause he knows something about Armenians youdon’t know, says with an air of self-satisfactionbordering on triumph: “And you call yourself anArmenian?” *Asserting superiority even onflimsiest of grounds must be a quintessentiallyArmenian need. *One reason why we have allowed theGenocide to become a collective addiction is thatit allows us a sense of moral superiority. *There is even a type of writer who, after writing aboutthe Genocide, finds it extremely difficult towrite about anything else. Writing about Turks,atrocities, and lies makes them feel morallysuperior, and the need to feel morally superioris especially pronounced in bastards.#

          Why did He?
          That’s a question for theologians.
          What’s theology?
          The study of the Unknown and the Unknowable.
          A harmless racket.
          It has claimed millions of innocent lives.
          Our history was shaped by alien predators.

            NOTES / COMMENTS
            Genocide is not an aberration
            but the rule.
            If Turks are guilty of “red” genocide
            we are guilty of its “white” variant.
            Our greatest blunder:
            to believe in the fundamental decency
            of the 1%.
            The 1% are swine
            regardless of race, color, and creed.
            Everybody loves God
            but no one can read His mind.
            You don’t believe what I say?
            Get used to it.

              You tell me I repeat myself
              because I have run out of new ideas,
              and I say, what’s the use of new ideas
              if nobody gives a damn about old ones?
              In some dictionaries, I am told,
              the word “genocide” is listed
              as a synonym of “victory.”
              During anti-Kurdish demonstrations in Istanbul,
              some angry demonstrators were heard
              shouting the slogan:
              “We don’t want massacres. We demand genocide.”

                Being Armenian is an abnormal condition. Being an
                Armenian writer is compounding the felony.

                  If what we believe shapes our character, it would
                  be no exaggeration to say that very often faith
                  creates vandals & killers.

                    Re: men / beasts

                    I once had the following conversation with one of
                    our publishers:
                    “I have had phone calls saying I should stop
                    publishing you,” he began.
                    “By whom?” I wanted to know.
                    “By Jack S. Avanakian,” he replied.
                    “You mean the same Jack S. Avanakian who happens
                    to be the personal secretary of one of our
                    national benefactors?”
                    “The very same.”
                    “Are you going to follow his instructions?”
                    “Of course not!”
                    But he did. Shortly thereafter he stopped
                    publishing me. What changed his mind? I have no
                    idea and he never explained. But I can’t help
                    remembering Brecht’s celebrated slogan: “Grub
                    first, then ethics.”
