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.

    Have you ever wondered how many men
    who killed and died in the name of King and Country
    ever stopped to ask: Whose King and whose Country?
    Or for that matter, whose Sultan and whose Commissar?
    The Brits who fought against German in World War II
    had a German king.
    Napoleon was Italian, Hitler Austrian, Stalin Georgian,
    the Greek king too was a German;
    most Byzantine emperors – the most warlike and bloodthirsty –
    were either Armenian of half-Armenian;
    the Ottoman sultans were bastards –
    the last one’s mother was an Armenian.
    Royalty, like so much else, is a big joke
    played by the ruling classes
    on the ignorant masses.
    As for Country: at one time or another,
    every piece of real estate, except the Garden of Eden,
    has been contested.
    What a book one could write
    on the role of lies, illusions, and wishful thinking
    in human affairs!
    By the way, most Armenian kings,
    including the last one, were odars.
    As for our present leadership:
    one of our elder statesmen once confided in me
    that some of them are Turks who speak Armenian fluently.
    I didn’t believe him then but I do now.
    When I first read the words “consensus seeker”
    I thought if I were a millionaire
    the first thing I would do is
    establish a university course on the subject.
    If we don’t have such a course today
    it may be because we are natural-born sh*t-disturbers
    who thrive on conflict.
    Think of society and its laws as a conspiracy
    whose aim is to produce criminals.
    You may have noticed that Armenians
    who demand solutions
    don’t like to think of themselves as the problem.
    Honest Christians exist
    as surely as honest Muslims,
    Hindus, Buddhists and atheists
    but they are not allowed to formulate
    and implement policy.
    It could be said of our leadership:
    the higher they rise,
    the lower they sink –
    which is what happens in all criminal organization.
    If I were to produce an autobiography
    I would begin by warning the reader that
    my life is so unreadable that
    I would have to either invent it
    or write the opposite of what really happened.
    The same applies to an objective account of our past.
    Power and lies are Siamese.
    The greater the power,
    the bigger the lies.
    To legitimize their power,
    popes assert infallibility
    notwithstanding their countless blunders –
    from the Crusades to
    the persecution, torture and death of heretics.
    Kings, we were told, got their power from God
    via the Church. It is safe to assume that
    men who speak in the name of god
    are compulsive and habitual liars.
    I repeat myself?
    So do you whenever you say “Yes, sir!”
    Americans have trouble understanding why
    someone who has enjoyed all the benefits and privileges
    of being a citizen of the greatest democracy
    in the history of mankind would freely choose
    to be a terrorist.
    They cannot imagine themselves to be so repulsive
    that in the environment they have created
    to kill and die become more desirable
    than to live and prosper.
    As for Armenians:
    our arrogance and stupidity are such that
    we cannot imagine ourselves to be targets of criticism
    by fellow Armenians.
    After Kazantzakis died and was buried in Crete,
    the natives would xxxx on his grave.
    My advice to our dissidents:
    stipulate in your will to be buried in a grave
    without a headstone.
    When sheep get organized
    they choose a wolf as their leader.
    Dissidents are neither harlots nor pimps
    but brothers and sisters who hear a different drummer.
    Now then, go ahead and explain that
    to our bosses, bishops, benefactors, and commissars.
