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.

    US Congress May Recognize Armenian Genocide, American Scholar Believes

    01.11.2006 18:02

    YEREVAN (YERKIR) - US Congressmen will to all appearance will adopt a resolution recognizing the Armenian Genocide, Georgetown University professor Clyde Wilcox believes. In his words, during the coming elections the Democrats have chances to have the majority at least at one of the Congress chambers.

    Professor Wilcox noted that in case Democrats win the elections House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D - CA) will become Speaker and will do her best for adoption of the Armenian Genocide resolution.

    As a result, in the opinion of Clyde Wilcox, the House will pass a statement recognizing the Armenian Genocide. However, he added, for the resolution to have effect the Senate and President should also approve it, which the professor considered “incredible,” reported PanARMENIAN.Net.

    Fat chance. Armenians always get their hopes up when made political promisses by politicians looking to get elected. Get real. It ain't going to happen. Realpolitic gets in the way - and Turkey holds all the cards.
    Who, after all, speaks today of the annihilation of the Armenians?

      I agree...to an extent. The defense contractors and hired guns will do whatever they can to stop it but at the same time if Nancy Pelosi becomes Speaker of the House; it could happen. In any event, it would probably take another last minute interference by the acting President to prevent passage again. Whatever happens, the fight will continue.

            Amend the constitution to allow both to serve as co-VP's... that would be a kick ass combo...

              Exactly. I don't believe any of them. Clinton had the bill on his desk and then Turkey threatened to Israel if the U.S. signed the bill. What nerve. So Clinton was told not to sign it for the sake of national security. He phone Dennis Hastert at the last minute and told him to kill the bill - must to the disgust of the house speaker. I'm American through and through, but our foreign policy needs a huge revamp in all areas.
