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.


- PLEASE READ -

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.

  • Istanbul to welcome head of Armenian church

    06/20/2006


    http://english.pravda.ru/news/world/...artholomew_I-0
    Karekin II, whose official title is Catholicos of All Armenians, has issued statements saying Turks committed genocide against Armenians around the time of World War I. Turkish nationalist protests during his visit are likely.



    Karekin's official title is Catholicos of All Armenians


    Turkey has no relations with Armenia, and vehemently denies that Turks committed genocide, saying Armenians who lived under the Ottoman Empire were killed in internal fighting among ethnic groups as the empire collapsed, the AP reports.

    Armenian Spiritual Leader in Istanbul

    By Zaman, Istanbul
    Published: Wednesday, June 21, 2006

    Head of the Armenian Apostolic Church, Karekin II, came to Istanbul Tuesday as a guest of Turkey’s Armenians Patriarch Mesrop II and Greek Orthodox Patriarch Bartholomew.




    Karekin II, welcomed by Bartholomew, will hold week-long meetings with several leaders.


    Karekin II, who traveled from Erivan on Armenian Airlines, was expected to leave the airport via the VIP Hall at Istanbul’s Ataturk Airport, but left instead in a vehicle convoy for security reasons.


    A crowd of nearly 50 gathered at the airport protested the arrival of Karekin II.

              It will take many generations before Armenians can view Turks/ Turkey with anything more than disgust; at most some Armenians may become magnanimous towards the Turks but that's even a stretch. It would be very hard to ever forgive or forget what the Turks did, especially when there is state-sponsored denial and the continued charade of the reverse-genocide theory. Asking Armenians to forgive and forget is more than any other people could bear.

                  I tend to agree. I'm not beholden to ultra-nationalists or facism but it just seems to me that facism is the driving force behind the Turkish government and many of its actions. You don't have to be Armenian, Greek, Assyrian, or Kurdish to come to that realization.
