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.

  • World Powers Hypocrites

    I think any time in history, where there have been mass executions, where populations have been annihilated, were indigenous people have been relocated etc should be recognized.

    Native Americans, Bosnians, Armenians, Algerians, Philippines, Bombings of Nagasaki & Hiroshima, Slave Trade, Spanish Inquisition etc - all of it should be recognized.

    I don't care who you are, what religion, what race, from a humanity point of view it is our obligation to research the past and classify it accordingly so we do not repeat these mistakes. Not in an effort to blame people today for what happened in history, but to bring closure and understanding so we will never repeat those acts again. That is the only good thing that can come from such horrible crimes.

    Now in stating this, I have to say, I find it incredibly hypocritical that the US, France or other nations which have recognized or pushing to the Armenians Genocide refuse to face their own history and the Genocide they committed.

    You need an education in history. Hiroshima and Nagasaki ended WWII.

      While you're educating yourself on WWII history, read this..

      The Potsdam Declaration and the Japanese response.
      About the leaflets dropped over 33 Japanese cities, warning people of the bombing.
      The Japanese government's inability to decide to surrender even AFTER TWO A-BOMBS were dropped on their cities.
      The Emperor's final decision to announce the surrender publicly and the military coup that nearly succeeded.

        The Allies could have just surrounded Japan, they had no navy or airforce at the time, so a land invasion was not necessary (how is an island nation supposed to attack anyone once their navy and airforce is gone?). It was also not necessary to drop the nukes at 8am, when everyone in the city is either going to school or work. It was also not necessary to drop a 2nd nuke a few days later. There was also a majority faction within Japan who wanted to surrender, it was only the minority ultra-militants who wanted to fight to the death. You simply have to negotiate with the peace faction and ignore the Emperor and his minority of followers.

        The reason they nuked Japan was so Japan surrenders to the US instead of the USSR. The country who forces a surrender gets to rebuild the nation, as the US did with Japan. They did not want Soviet influence over Japan, so they nuked 2 cities to force a quick surrender before the Soviets had a chance to make Japan surrender.

        But anyways its funny that Timetells is advocating genocide recognition in one thread and denying it in another.

          The reason they 'nuked' Japan was due to the Japanese government's response to the Potsdam Declaration. After Hiroshima, the Japanese government couldn't decide whether to surrender or not, after Nagasaki the same problem presented itself. That's when the Emperor himself declared he would make the announcement publicly that Japan would surrender. Right after that the military instigated and nearly succeeded in a coup. Instead, Hirohito went on the radio and made the announcement.

          The 'nuking' of Japan didn't stop the Soviets from taking the Sakhalin Islands.

            The USA is responsible of the unnecessary mass murder of thousands of Japanese civilians.
