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.

    Elekdag: Armenian Diaspora's Accusing Turkey Of Genocide Is A Legal Crime

    Anatolian Times, Turkey
    Nov. 25, 2005

    ANKARA - "Armenian diaspora's accusing Turkey of genocide is a legal
    crime," Sukru Elekdag, MP of the main opposition party --Republican
    People's Party (CHP)-- said on Thursday.

    Speaking at an international symposium held at Ankara's Gazi
    University on "Turkish-Armenian Relations and 1915 Incidents",
    Elekdag said, "those who advocate Armenian thesis, cannot prove their
    allegations within the context of the United Nations Conventions on
    the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide. The Article
    4 of the Convention says that only persons and public officials
    can be accused of genocide, not juristic persons or states. Also,
    Article 6 of the same convention says that those allegations should
    be determined by competent tribunals."

    "Parliaments of several countries decided to recognize so-called
    Armenian genocide by violating the United Nations Convention. A
    decision made by violating international laws does not have any
    legal ground. The law does not define the 1915 incidents as crime
    of genocide. Therefore, an undefined act cannot be considered
    crime. This is the principle of 'there is no crime without
    law'. Under all these principles, it is impossible to describe the
    1915 incidents as genocide, and to accuse the Ottoman Empire and
    Turkey of genocide. Those allegations have both political and legal
    dimensions. Therefore, a court of arbitration should be formed to
    deal with the issue," he said.

    I can't wait to hear what else comes out of the "international symposium held at Ankara's Gazi University on "Turkish-Armenian Relations and 1915 Incidents" - anyone have any info. This "International Symposium" must be the denialists answer to the AG Conference held in Istanbul.

    Elekdag's claim that states cannot be accused of Genocide is testament to his extreme lack of understanding of what genocide is about - in addition to his other obvious shortcommings...
