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.

  • Vatican Reacts To Armenian Monastery Desecration


    Printed from:

    A decision by the Turkish occupation regime to grant a "license" to
    operate a recreation centre in the Armenian Monastery of Surb Makar
    (Saint Makarios) in the Halefka area, north of the Turkish occupied
    village of Kythrea, has spurred a strong reaction by the Vatican.

    Cypriot Government Spokesman Kypros Chrysostomides said today that
    the government totally agreed with the Vatican's reaction, noting
    that it was after moves by the government that the desecration of
    the monastery had come to the attention of the Vatican.

    The Spokesman noted that "various protests were made and there has
    been a reaction on behalf of the Vatican, which says and stresses
    in its verbal note that the attention of the competent Turkish
    authorities has been drawn to the specific case, as well as other
    lamentable incidences."

    Chrysostomides added that this was "a severe response, which is not
    customary on behalf of the Vatican, and the language used is also
    stern against the occupation authorities."

    "We totally agree and it is after actions by the government that the
    desecration of the monastery has come to the attention of the Vatican,"
    the Spokesman pointed out.

    YEREVAN, SEPTEMBER 10. ARMINFO. Armenian Parliamentary Speaker Arthur Baghdasaryan and PACE President Rene van der Linden discussed the process of Constitutional reforms in Armenia in New York. Speaker Baghdasaryan stays on an official visit to the USA.

    The Armenian Parliamentary press-service reports to ARMINFO that Rene van der Linden stressed the importance of an extensive propaganda before the national referendum. He also stressed the importance of the efficiency of the reforms.

    In New York, Arthur Baghdasaryan met with a number of Czech, Swiss, Japanese, Brazilian and Jordanian colleagues. These official meetings resulted in agreements on establishment of inter-parliamentary ties of Armenia and the above states. Arthur Baghdasaryan expressed confidence in considerable contribution of these ties to developing bilateral cooperation in different spheres and to the right perception of the problems concerning Armenia at international organizations. Armenian Speaker and Head of the House of Representatives of Cyprian Parliament Demetris Christofias agreed to erect a Monument for the victims of Armenian genocide in ottoman Turkey in 1915 in Larnaca.

    Arthur Baghdasaryan return to Yerevan after his meetings in New York.

    First, it is ridiculed;
    Second, it is violently opposed; and
    Third, it is accepted as self-evident."
