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.

  • Belgian Socialists Have Anti-armenian Position

    AZG Armenian Daily #092, 21/05/2005

    Armenian Genocide


    Soon, the Senate of Belgium is going to discuss the bill that envisages
    criminal punishment for denying genocides. The point is that the bill
    concerns only de jure recognized genocides. We have already mentioned
    that the bill can be applied against the deniers of the Armenian
    Genocide only when certain amendments are made to the document.

    It is envisaged to discuss the amendments that envisage criminal
    punishment for other instances, particularly, for the Belgian
    federal legal bodies and the legal instances of Europe that denied
    the recognized genocides.

    According to the information sent to the Justice and Democracy
    Federation of European Armenians, the socialist party of Belgium
    has occupied an openly negative position. Trying to approve their
    anti-Armenian position, the socialists state that they are against
    the submitted amendments, as "one shouldn't include such an important
    idea as genocide into a criminal text."

    The socialists cynically conclude that it will be possible to apply
    the current bill for "the Armenian Genocide too, when it will be
    recognized by a relevant instance."

    The Justice and Democracy Federation of European Armenians believes
    that this position of the Socialistic party is directly dictated by the
    Turkish state, that continues the policy of denying and disregarding
    the Armenian Genocide.

    "In fact, the socialists are mocking at the Belgian instances and,
    in particular, the Senate, equaling to zero the bills that they adopt
    there," the Federation of the European Armenians emphasized, condemning
    the position of the Socialist Party that denies its own past.

    The current position of the Socialists is conditioned by only
    pre-electoral factors and is aimed to please thousands of Turks that
    live in Brussels. The Federation calls for the legal enforcement
    organizations, the Center for Equal Rights, the activists of Socialist
    movement, the genocide victims' organizations, in particular, the
    Jewish, Armenian and other unions to demand from the Socialist Party
    to apologize and occupy a position that keeps in line with European
