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.

  • Swiss cheese on my Turkey Sandwich!

    Hahaha. Turkey is teh funny. Go Switzerland!

    Report: Turkey may block Swiss politician's planned visit

    .c The Associated Press


    ZURICH, Switzerland (AP) - Turkey may block a planned visit of
    Switzerland's economics minister, a Swiss newspaper reported Sunday,
    the latest episode in a long-running diplomatic dispute between the
    two governments.

    The Turkish ambassador to Switzerland, Alev Kilic, told NZZ am Sonntag
    he couldn't rule out that Joseph Deiss' September trip would be
    canceled.

    At the core of the dispute are Turkey's killings of Armenians around
    the time of World War I, considered by the Swiss and some other
    governments to have amounted to genocide - something Ankara fiercely
    denies.

    Ankara was angered two weeks ago when Swiss authorities launched an
    investigation into a visiting Turkish politician, Dogu Perincek, who
    said the killings weren't genocide.

    Under Switzerland's anti-racism laws, denying genocide is a crime, and
    Perincek was briefly detained after his speech.

    Last week, Turkey called the Swiss ambassador to the Foreign Ministry
    to protest Perincek's detention and investigation.

    In the NZZ am Sonntag interview, Kilic said the investigation was an
    attempt to squelch free speech and sent a ``grave signal'' to Turks
    living in Switzerland to ``keep their mouths shut.''

    Meanwhile, Perincek reiterated his earlier comments in an interview
    with another Swiss newspaper on Sunday.

    ``There has never been a genocide, that is an international historic
    lie,'' he told SonntagsBlick.

    Similar disputes have erupted in the past between Turkey and
    Switzerland.

    In June, a Turkish Cabinet minister postponed a visit to Switzerland
    to protest an investigation of a Turkish historian who denied the
    killings were a genocide.

    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) approved a motion calling the killings a
    genocide.
