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.

    Did you read the exchange of letters between him and Baliozian?

    I posted a link a while back.

      I did. They both reduced themselves to name calling in the end. Rather sad but understandable also.

      But, I blame Harut. Ara was somewhat vulnerable back then as his ego appeared bruised. Rather than take the high ground Harut chose to lower himself and struck a wounded animal.

      One of Harut's recent articles claimed that we've come a long way and took liberty of that women's rights mantra "You've come a long way baby" which actually is very condescending in present day parlance and in his other belated article slamming Elie Weasel he proves that we've come so far that a hypocritical, lying, nonetheless Nobel peace prize winning, non-Armenian can erroneously define what Armenians are fighting for in the mainstream media without much true resistance from our so-called leaders.

      Look Mr. Weasel is a hypocritical liar when he says you can't call the tragedy a genocide on the argument of semantics that the word did not exist yet, because under his own logic there was no Holocaust because that term is regularly attributed to him and he didn't purportedly coin it when it happened.

        I agree with everything except the first part. Harout is a good man who really does work for the Armenian Cause, while ara is just another fake Armenian who happened to have a last name ending in "ian". Plus, it is not like ara has now changed and no longer has an ego, he still says a lot of bs IMHO.

          Harut has a major conflict of interest that prevents him from truly advocating Armenian-American causes.

          As for the California Courier, what is the actual circulation of this newspaper, how many subscribers does this 'publication' have? Ordinarily, for a periodical like a newspaper to be considered a publication, it has to publish its circulation.

          If he 'publishes' a newspaper, then every person that blogs on their own independent website has a 'publication'. Firing of an e-mail to Groong entitled "California Courier" does not a published newspaper make.

          And, with regard to Armenian American fundraising organizations like Armenia Fund, there does not appear to be any transparency or accountability for the dispersal of donor funds for projects. From their website, it does not even look like they published an annual report for 2006. Its laughable.

          In the end, IMHO, lots of show, little go.

            Well you can think what you like freaky, but I have seen the good that has been done by Armenia Fund, and I agree with Paron Sassounyan's ideas. If you have something personal against Harut that is different, but I can not see how any self respecting Armenian could think Harut's ideas are worthless (not saying you do).
            For the first time in more than 600 years, Armenia is free and independent, and we are therefore obligated
            to place our national interests ahead of our personal gains or aspirations.

                2 things, if his benefactors are like him, it matters little to me to know their names. Because from what I know about the man, he is a good nationalist.
                2nd, you seem to support this ara guy, yet have you asked yourself who his benefactors are?

                  Disconnect between Hayastan All-Armenian Fund, Armenia Fund USA and United Armenian Fund?; Executive Director of former blames lack of recovering donor pledges from last November's telethon for failure to finish NKR highway, acknowledges poor planning by organization coupled by unexpected rise in prices of natural resources responsible for delays, and was unable to confirm Ara Abrahamyan's 2006 $1,000,000.00 telethon pledge was used to build school but confirms he is on the A/R list. http://www.hetq.am/eng/society/8072/

                  Committee on NGOs refuse to accept application by Armenia Fund USA for referral to NKR in application as not conistent with UN terminology; Turkey complains against Armenia Fund USA for not coordinating with Azerbaijan when conducting activities in the region while identifying those activities as political. http://7thspace.com/headlines/282948...l_council.html

                  Has anyone seen Harut's USPS 3526 form (statement of ownership, management and circulation for periodical publications) for the Califonia Courier?

                    Shoe drops; Armenian Reporter, in its June 28, 2008 edition, is reporting that the Executive Director of Hayastan All Armenian Fund has resigned.
