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.

    Denying Armenian Genocide in Times Square

    Times Square in Manhattan was the scene of a very strange, very professionally-staged demonstration yesterday by a Turkish group denying the Armenian genocide. An LGF reader sent the link to a slideshow on Flickr with photographs of this event, featuring a Pinocchio statue representing “Armenian lies.”

    Turkey, of course, is trying to be accepted into the European Union, and people keep bringing up the murders and persecution of Armenians. This is the first wave of a highly-funded public relations campaign to deny Turkey’s crimes.

          Armenian Genocide Rally in Times Square

          April 22nd, 2007 · 1 Comment
          Today’s Armenian Genocide rally in Times Square was well-attended by politicos, trying to make a point that they support recognition of the events of 1915 as genocide against the Armenian people. Some of the notables included (and this is only some of them) US Senators Bob Menendez (D-NJ) and Chuck Schumer (D-NY), Congressman Frank Pallone (D-NJ), former US Ambassador to Armenia John Evan (who got canned from his post for recognizing the Armenian Genocide a few years back), and Curtis Sliwa–the founder of the Guardian Angels–who (pictured above) gave a rousing and aggressive speech about America’s failure to push Turkey to recognize its past. I’m guessing close to 5,000 people attended the rally which lasted 2 1/2 hours.

          Among the thousands of Armenian Americans (and friends) that attended the rally were a small group of kids with really provocative signs that verged on the nationalistic (one crassly equated Turks with idiots–I think most Armenians can make the separation between a government and its people).

          Someone at the rally mentioned to me that the previous day’s Armenian Genocide denial rally in Times Square (reputedly funded by the Turkish government and organized by a strange committee named YOUNG-TURKS) only included 200 protesters but they augmented their small numbers with large video screens and more professionally orchestrated banners (here’s the web posting on TURKSES announcing the rally [post], and just in case that comes down here’s a PDF of the announcement [PDF]).

          The fact that the Turkish government is pouring money into such events shows how desperate they are becoming. Eventually, they must know that their lies will be surmounted by the truth.
