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.

    Re: Turkish politician loses first appeal against Swiss racism conviction

    Swiss arrest 2 Turks for allegedly denying Armenian genocide
    AP Worldstream
    Published: Jun 30, 2007

    Two Turks were arrested Saturday on suspicion of breaking Swiss
    anti-racism laws for allegedly denying that the killing of Armenians in
    the early 20th century was genocide, police said.

    The two were arrested at a conference in the Zurich suburb of
    Winterthur, where posters were hung up and leaflets distributed
    rejecting that the killing was genocide. One of the Turks organized the
    event and the other was shouting slogans before a crowd.

    Switzerland's anti-racism legislation, which previously applied to
    Holocaust denial, was used earlier this year to prosecute a Turkish
    politician for denying at a gathering in 2005 that the Turks committed
    genocide in the World War I-era killings.

    Last week, a Swiss cantonal court upheld the conviction against Dogu
    Perincek, the leader of the Turkish Workers' Party, as well as an order
    for him to pay a fine of 3,000 Swiss francs (US$2,450; A1,870).

    The case of Perincek, who was also ordered to pay 1,000 francs (US$820;
    A620) to an Armenian association, has caused diplomatic tension between
    Switzerland and Turkey. Turkey insists Armenians were killed in civil
    unrest during the tumultuous collapse of the Ottoman Empire and not in
    a campaign of genocide. Turkey also rejects Armenian claims that the
    death toll reached 1.5 million.

    Perincek was invited to Saturday's conference, but was prevented from
    entering Switzerland because he had not applied for a visa, said
    Dominique Boillat, spokesman for the Federal Office for Migration.

    Police in the canton (state) of Zurich identified the two arrested
    individuals as a 57-year-old resident of Germany and a 51-year-old
    Swiss resident.
    What if I find someone else when looking for you? My soul shivers as the idea invades my mind.
