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.

    Dr. Justin McCarthy has been invited to give a lecture on Wednesday 15th June
    at the European Parliament in Brussels. The event, undertaken by the British
    MEP Richard Howitt (Labour) is the latest episode Turkey's ongoing campaign of
    Genocide denial in Europe.

    McCarthy, a so-called historian, is one of the most notorious and ardent
    deniers of the Armenian Genocide. Just as Faurisson and Irving have taken the
    lead in Jewish Holocaust denial, so has McCarthy masterminded the policies of
    "scholarly" deceit regarding the Armenian Genocide.

    Mr. McCarthy's flawed statistical "analysis" regarding the Armenian population
    in the region is a prime example of so called scholarly denial tactics. His
    studies have been designed to undercount the Armenian population in Turkey
    prior to the Genocide and have been proven to be faulty by a leading specialist
    in the field.

    The European Parliament recognized the Armenian Genocide in 1987 and has
    reaffirmed its acknowledgement annually through political dialogue between the
    European Union (EU) and the Republic of Turkey. As a result, extending an
    invitation to Mr. McCarthy to speak in Brussels is unwarranted, because his
    distorted views are out of sync with mainstream opinion regarding the Armenian
    Genocide and therefore should not be introduced into the political dialogue.

    Furthermore, Mr. McCarthy advocates a position, which distorts the reality of
    the genocide. This invitation compromises the integrity of the European
    Parliament. This very severe breach to the dignity of millions of Europeans
    would be a blatant rejection of the core values of the European Union and would
    distance European citizens from the European Project.

    As such, we solemnly call upon the President of the European Parliament to
    immediately cancel this conference. We also urge the President of the Socialist
    group in the European Parliament to take appropriate action.
