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: Can Turkey Learn Tolerance?

    So if I understood you correctly you`re in favour of the amendments of the constitution and will vote "yes" in the coming referendum? But didn`t Erdogan said that more changes needs to be done to the constitution and this will probably happen next year after the parliamentary elections. How is the public opinion in Turkey regarding the coming referendum? Do you think the new amendments will be approved?

      Frankly, It isn't easy to guess what will be the result.People's minds are confused due to politicans' words but most of people chose their side ( according to their parties).Dilemma will be stayed till the last day but one thing is clear : Change is necessary.

        No surprise here. Turks are showing their nature to Australians

        Assyrian Genocide Monument in Australia Vandalized

        8-30-2010


        Fairfield, Australia (AINA) -- The Assyrian Genocide Monument, which was
        installed on August 7, has been vandalized. According to Fairfield police,
        the vandalism occurred around 4 AM. The police have no leads on the
        perpetrators. The vandals painted a Turkish crescent and star on the
        monument's globe, which sits on a pedestal resembling a hand, as well as
        writing "xxxx Assyrian dogs" and "xxxx Assyria" on the left and forward
        sides of the base of the monument. The plaque at the front of the monument
        was removed.

        According to the Fairfield City Champion, a local newspaper, a war memorial
        in Fairfield Park, dedicated to Australian and Assyrian soldiers who fought
        together, was also vandalized with a mixture of concrete and paint.

        This act of vandalism comes as no surprise. After the dedication of the
        monument, Assyrian community leaders had privately expressed concerns about
        the safety of the monument.

        The monument is dedicated to the 750,000 Assyrians that were killed by Turks
        in World War One, between 1915 and 1918.

          The only dogs here are those Turks who did this.

            More like hyenas. The citizens of Australia can see the true nature of the Turks.

              Kids with spray paint, almost certainly born, educated and citizens of Australia.

              But don't let that minor point get in the way of your ad hominem fallacy....

                And all most certainly raised in Turkish homes. I'll bet the Aussies just love them

                  It looks like an enormous fibreglass football trophy. With a glued-on plaque. And for the plinth, all fake marble cladding, cut wafer thin (like the stuff used for cheap kitchen worktops?). And what is that paving meant to be - poured concrete (?) with a pattern painted on it to mimic hexagonal bricks. The graphitti is the only thing it has going for it - having it there indicates there is more meaning to the monument than just being a suburban eyesore.

                    In my opinion, the level of Nationist chauvinism emanating from Turkey is complete unacceptable. The Turkish government and establishment are one thing and the Turkish people are quite another.

                      If the Assyrians built it the monument must mean something to them as we have ours and many people say the same , when you get up in the morning and look in the mirror are you happy with what you see or do you say man why did God do this to me
