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.

  • Is baklava an Armenian desert?

    Lets discuss something different than why Turks are barbaric murderer savages, how they butcher English language, how their brains are full of propoganda of their government, why EU will never admit them to the union, how Armenians are European and white, how ASALA is a group of people from freedom warriors, etc.
    For example nowadays Greeks appealed to Europan Parliement to proclaim that baklava is a Greek desert and Turkish coffee is originally a Greek coffee.
    What do you think about it? I suspect that baklava and what we call as Turkisah coffee is originally Armenian.

    Re: Is baklava an Armenian desert?

    This debate has been raging since the dawn of man. Armenians call this dessert Paklava - Greeks Baklava. Most people would associate this dessert with the Greeks b/c thay are more representative throughout the world (plus they are accomplished resurantuers). Anyway that does not prove that they invented Paklava.
    I suppose this question requires more historical research. However, I know one thing: Turks can lay no claim on this dessert since they were late comers to Anatolia. Also, we call "Turkish coffe" - "Armenian coffee".
    It's all good.

      Turkish/Armenian coffee is left over from caveman days. Back then, they used to call it "mud" because that's exactly what it looks and tastes like.

          Than I guess that Armenian's can claim this "mud" as their own. Mongolians were still in Mongolia during caveman days.

                It seems as if the turks where 15 centuries late in order to be able to claim this "invention": (and who is to say that the first coffee shop wasn't in fact owned by a Greek, Armenian or J-e-w eh?)...there were certainly more of the former living in Constantinople during this time then there were turks living there. Note - coffee bean first brought to Americas by Jesuits in 16th century...

                Ethiopians make the claim (but seem to attribute it to a much youger date...)

                On Yemeni origin: (hundreds of years - at least - before arrival of Turks into the vicinity...)

                  I'm surprised you didn't trace its origins to the Kurds!

                    I prefer my mud 100x diluted with water and at 10x the cost. Modern day humans call it American Coffee .
