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.

    Armenia's Greek community remembers Pontian Greeks genocide

    May 19, 2011 - 15:28 AMT

    PanARMENIAN.Net - Armenia's Greek community does not forget about the genocide of the Pontian Greeks perpetrated by Turkish nationalists under the guidance of Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, the head of Greek community of Armenia stated.

    As Arkady Khitarov told a news conference in Yerevan, the recognition and condemnation of the genocide is gaining impetus, specifically in U.S. and Australia.

    “Armenia's struggle for recognition of 1915 Genocide is an example for the Greek nation,” he said.

    Speaking about whether modern Turkey is ready to acknowledge its past, the head of the community characterized it as a country, which brings up generations on fictional history.

    In reply to a PanARMENIAN.Net reporter's question if Turkey, which denies the fact of perpetrating the genocide of Christian nations, will be permitted to join the EU, Khitarov expressed hope that the Europeans will not allow it.


    Pontian Greeks genocide recognition viewed as sacrilege in Turkey, expert says

    May 19, 2011 - 15:01 AMT

    PanARMENIAN.Net - The icon of modern Turkey, Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, had a central role in organization of the genocide of Pontian Greeks, deputy director of the Armenian Genocide Museum said.

    “This is why mentioning the fact of the genocide and its possible recognition is viewed as sacrilege and crash of historic memory in Turkey,” Suren Manukyan told a news conference in Yerevan.

    “If, in case with the Armenian Genocide issue, the blame could be shifted on Ottoman Empire authorities, the responsibility of genocide of the Pontian Greeks is mainly Kemal Ataturk's,” he said.

    As of today, the genocide of the Pontian Greeks has been recognized by Greece, Cyprus and Sweden only.


    Armenia's Greek community acts as bridge connecting Armenia to Greece

    May 19, 2011 - 18:01 AMT


    PanARMENIAN.Net - Armenia's Greek community acts as a bridge, connecting Armenia to Greece, according to the head of the Greek community.

    “At present, about 1300 Greeks reside in Armenia. Many left Armenia in early 1990s because of complicated social and economic conditions. To me, Armenia is a second motherland, my historic motherland,” Arkady Khitarov told a news conference in Yerevan.

    As Mr. Khitarov noted, Greeks in Armenia are perceived as a full fledged members of the Republic, which is explained by many mixed marriages in the community.
