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.

    Swiss authorities investigating Turkish politician accused of
    violating anti-racism laws

    .c The Associated Press

    WINTERTHUR, Switzerland (AP) - A criminal investigation has been
    launched into a Turkish politician suspected of violating Swiss
    anti-racism laws by denying that the killings of Armenians around the
    time of World War I amounted to genocide, authorities in Switzerland
    said Sunday.

    Dogu Perincek, former chairman of Turkey's Workers' Party, is accused
    of denying genocide during a speech held last week in the Swiss town
    of Opfikon-Glattburg, the prosecutor's office in the canton (state) of
    Winterthur and the police department of Zurich said in a joint

    In the speech to honor the 82nd anniversary of the Treaty of Lausanne,
    which fixed the borders of modern-day Turkey, Perincek called claims
    of genocide against the Armenians an imperialist lie, authorities

    Under Swiss law, any act of denying, belittling or justifying genocide
    is a violation of the country's anti-racism laws.

    Armenians say 1.5 million of their people were killed as the Ottoman
    Empire forced them from eastern Turkey between 1915 and 1923 - and
    that this was a deliberate campaign of genocide by Turkey's rulers at
    that time.

    Turks say the death count is inflated and insist that Armenians were
    killed or displaced as the Ottoman Empire tried to secure its border
    with Russia and stop attacks by Armenian militants.

    Switzerland and Turkey have squared off in the past over the killings.

    In June, a Turkish Cabinet minister postponed a visit to Switzerland
    to protest a Swiss investigation of a Turkish historian who made a
    similar speech denying that the mass killings of Armenians in the
    early 1900s amounted to genocide.

    Micheline Calmy-Rey, the Swiss foreign minister, had been scheduled to
    travel to Turkey in 2003, but Turkey withdrew its invitation after the
    parliament of a western Swiss canton (state) recognized the killings
    of Armenians in Turkey as genocide. Calmy-Rey visited Turkey in March.

      Turkish politician repeats denial of Armenian genocide


      A Turkish politician repeated Sunday his claim that it was an
      "international lie" to speak of genocide of Armenians during World
      War I.

      Dogu Perincek, chairman of the Turkish Labour Party, was speaking at
      a ceremony in Lausanne marking the signing of the treaty establishing
      the modern Turkish state in the Swiss city on 24 July 1923.

      Perincek was detained Saturday by the Swiss authorities and
      questioned by a state prosecutor for two hours about making the same
      claim at a conference in Winterthur earlier this year, Zurich police

      The public denial of genocide is a crime in Switzerland.

      The Turkish government Sunday called Perincek's temporary detention
      in Switzerland "unacceptable".

      The arrest was "completely inconsistent with the principle of freedom
      of opinion", said Turkey's Foreign Minister Abdullah Gul in Ankara.

      Around 300 Kurds, Armenians and Assyrians demonstrated at Sunday's
      ceremony, protesting that the 1923 treaty destroyed their hopes of
      independence and autonomy.

      Turkey refuses to label as genocide the deaths of hundreds of
      thousands of Armenians during forced expulsions under the Ottoman
      Empire. dpa bi mga gm pmc pb
