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.

  • Re: Christian workers throats slit by Turkish Islamists.

    may, the reason for that should be pretty obvious, especially on this forum. Turkey, the evil republic, is the successor state to the evil empire.

    I agree with you totally about the double standards regarding "secularism" and democracy. What a joke that is.
    France enforces whichever EU law it sees fit and probably all the member nations do the same.
    New Zealand put as a shining example of democracy but isn't the English queen still Head of State there? Who voted for her then?
    And the English queen/king cannot, by law, be a Catholic. Standards/Standards.

    Turkey does itself no favours whatsoever in it's treatment of minorities and it's "bang on" nationalism........as regards it's muslim content, I could care less.
    The Prime Minister of New Zealand appoints a governor general...then gets the Queen's seal of approval. So it is a position appointed by an elected member of New Zealand's government.

    But the governor general has no role in government apart from that Governor General signs off laws and can call new elections if the government is in chaos. So he/she can't express religious views...which is the entire point of secularism...no religion in politics.

    As for a republic...some people think of that but the republican movement is not that big enough yet, we have a Maori King...so we might only need to move a few chairs round, and get to keep a constitutional monarchy.

    Getting to racism...you can't escape it anywhere. A lot is due to globalization. Nowhere can escape it. In the end the only way to counter it is through preaching tolerance of other people's cultures and religions, and living by it. Unfortunately many people in Turkey don't believe in tolerance...which results in some Armenian's responding in a equally intolerant manner.

      I agree and I alongside many others fight against this Yakamoz but the Turkish people have to be more understanding and completely acknowledge WHY we Armenians feel or think the way we do today.
      We understand it. It is an educated hate.. Otherwise, No sensible person will hate another for something happened 100 years ago. Anyway, after all, Blood hate is still common at eastern anatolia..

              So, Gavur, in the near 4 years this thread's been open, do you believe that turkey has started to learn tolerance or just indifference?

                they are definitely cleaning up their image, but it was so out of control, they still have long ways to go.They need to start by abolishing 301, that would confirm their progress and show that these modest gains are not temporary.

                      One step forward, two steps back in my view, sadly. Witness the vile DVD used to brainwash school kids, the plays enacted late last year to school kids. The turkish government is so petrified of the "internet generation" and trying to instil their propaganda at the earliest stage possible.
