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.

    NOTES / COMMENTS
    **********************************
    About Turks, the question is:
    “Were we blind?”
    *
    Empires and civilizations are created by barbarians
    who after committing genocide, say,
    “What genocide?”
    *
    Where there is power, there will be a lie:
    the greater the power, the bigger the lie.”
    *
    Politicians: Because all nations have them,
    they are not called criminals but legislators.
    *
    The ultimate aim of all organized belief systems
    is to justify indiscriminate slaughter.
    *
    If you kill in the name of god,
    it’s not murder.

    Re: crackpots

    Our bishops represent the Almighty, our benefactors represent another Almighty, and our bosses represent their respective little mafias. Who represents the people? The voice of the people continues to be an absent factor in our collective existence.

    **************************************
    NOTES / COMMENTS
    *************************
    If you are an honest man
    you will make a thousand enemies
    and a single friend and that single friend
    will pretend he doesn’t know you.
    *
    You want to know what I really think
    of my fellow Armenians?
    A gentle reader once called me
    “Son of a Turkish xxxxx.”
    That’s what I think.
    *
    If an Armenian corrects your spelling,
    forever after he will operate on the assumption
    he knows better.
    *
    All wars are based on the unspoken dictum
    “Your death is my life.”
    *
    It is written:
    “God doesn’t have to exist in order to rule.”
    *
    Flattery and analysis are mutually exclusive concepts.
    *
    Doubt is more fruitful than certainty.

    Since neither of us is stupid or arrogant enough
    to assert infallibility, let us proceed from the assumption
    we may be both wrong.

    To hate is human. But to preach, promote, and
    legitimize hatred is something else. The
    difference between one and the other is as vast
    as that which exists between wishing someone dead
    and killing him.

    **********************************
    ENIGMA VARIATIONS
    *************************
    To be an Armenian writer is not a capital offense
    but it is treated as one by Armenians.
    *
    An Armenian is another Armenian’s Turk
    *
    Like the rest of mankind
    an Armenian is born in an imperfect world
    to imperfect parents,
    educated by imperfect teachers
    and lives among less than perfect men.
    *
    It has been said:
    “An Armenian is an enigma
    that refuses to be solved.”
    You may now consider my words
    as a small step in the right direction.

    ON THE UNKNOWN
    AND THE INCOMPREHENSIBLE
    ***********************************************
    Cain and Abel are not brothers.
    They are states of mind.
    *
    After having a mystical experience
    St. Thomas Aquinas is quoted as having said:
    “Everything I have written is garbage.”
    *
    There are many gods
    (some say ten thousand of them).
    The god of priests and imams
    is only one of them.
    *
    When told many Christians don’t believe
    in the god of priests, the Pope is quoted as having said:
    “That’s good because I don’t believe in him either.”
    *
    Explaining god is a racket
    like any other racket.
    *
    To deny the existence of god
    is like denying the existence of the shadow
    of a non-existent black hat
    in a dark room.
