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.

  • Armenian Diaspora Dangerous For Turkey, Turkish Historian Considers


    PanArmenian News Network

    /PanARMENIAN.Net/ There is no political pressure on the discussion of
    the Armenian issue, Professor Hikmet Ozdemir, head of the Armenian
    Studies Department at the Turkish Union of Historians stated when
    asked why the open discussion of the Armenian issue is under political
    pressure, Die Welt reports. When commenting on the negative statements
    by Turkish Foreign Minister on the Armenian Genocide Conference
    in Istanbul Ozdemir noted that no one forced the initiators to
    cancel the conference. In his words, Turkey refrained from the
    discussions of the Armenian issue due to the unwillingness to reopen
    old wounds. "The Armenian Diaspora has convinced the whole world in
    the thesis of Genocide and this prejudice can have grave consequences
    for Turkey. We urge international discussion of the issue. We have
    opened our archives. We request all other participants of the First
    World War to produce the documents they possess", Ozdemir stated.

    Turkey and Turks,
    Ever hear the good old saying "What you sow, you shall reap". You made your bed, now lay in it. There wouldn't be such a diaspora, let alone one causing you "problems" if you hadn't committed Genocide, and then allowed your new republic to foolishly deny it for 90 years. We are not going away - We're here to stay. Either get used to us, or recognize the Armenian Genocide so we can all try to get along again...

      Thank you!

      I've noticed it myself, Turks blame the genocide "allegations" on the diaspora... but interestingly enough, every other diasporan has lost some family members in the genocide. My great grandma for example, escaped the genocide after her entire family was massacred, went to Russia and then moved to Iran and got married there! Her kids and grand kids are now all over the world... the result of the genocide. Perhaps that's the main reason why the diaspora is super sensitive on this issue. No wonder Turks don't like us!

When they had Taleat pasha, we had Soghomon Tehleryan. New Hrants will be born, and our struggle will go on. [/B][/COLOR][/I][/CENTER]
