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.

    CALL TO ACTION: It’s OK to Say…
    By Garen Yegparian on May 22nd, 2009



    “Garen will finish what Hitler/Pol Pot/Milosevic started,” right? See it’s only a friend kidding around. It’s all for ratings advertising money through shock-jockery. It’s OK, at least that’s gotta be Bill Handel’s, of Clear Channel owned KFI 640 AM radio in the “LA Market”, approach to life.

    This Burbank-based show is another of the right-wing, loud, unsubstantiated, crass, yet immensely popular noise machines that is epitomized by Rush (The Druggie) Limbaugh. In this case, believe it or not, a discussion of healthcare led to the statement “What the Turks started, Bill will finish”.




    Bill testing a carpet in Turkey


    While talking about the costs, Handel suggested reducing the U.S. population to save the government money. Then came a wisecrack about starting with the Armenians and selling Glendale. So far, it’s just tacky, and par for the shock-radio course. One person who heard this called and e-mailed to complain. The upshot? The e-mail was read and mocked, again no surprises. But then came “What the Turks started, Bill will finish.”

    Now it’s time to let the rage flow free. Call, write, and just plain flood KFI and its owner, Clear Channel with your disgust. These people (and here I use the term loosely) have to learn what boundaries not to cross. Handel’s parents being Holocaust survivors doesn’t excuse or sanction such abuse. Quite the contrary, it makes things all the worse.

    When you call, tell them you want a serious apology, one not fraught with further mockery. Even more, Handel should issue a call to his listeners to write Obama the Betrayer and contact their Congressional reps to support the current resolution.

    You’ll certainly want to hear the two clips. Unfortunately, you can’t hear the real offender off KFI’s website. Why? They’ve taken down that show from their website. Hmm, wonder why that is. Fortunately, they were downloaded ahead of time and are now available at: http://www.burbankanc.org/KFI.mp3

    To contact these people, here are some options:
    snail mail address:
    3400 W Olive Ave Ste 550, Burbank CA 91505
    e-mail:
    Robin Bertolucci, Program Director, KFI AM640,[email protected]

    KFI station numbers:
    Main: (818) 559-2252
    Programming: (818) 566-6476

    Corporate headquarters:
    Clear Channel, 200 East Basse Road, San Antonio, TX 78209
    210/822-2828
    [email protected]


    you can also go to the FCC website and file a complaint with them. i have attached a link:

    http://esupport.fcc.gov/complaints.htm



    Let’s flood these people. Especially since it’s a holiday weekend, let’s fill up their voice mail system. You can find some other numbers for them on line too. If you’re feeling up to it, flood those as well.

    How do these losers have a voice in the public domain? He looks like an over grown 10 yr old ready for gym class. Just ignore this clown, no need to give him any more material.

        Not really because this is the 'land of the free and the racist'.

        Meaning that were you to complain it won't get anywhere, because I am sure they get so many complaints every day about people like Bill that they can't do much about it, also they are well within their rights thanks to the US constitution to make total hate speech because the US hasn't signed up or followed the Human Declaration of Human rights or the Geneva convention.

        In NZ that sort of hate speech would hit the news, cause a public outcry, and force the radio station to sack the person who made the comments. But its the USA, so I doubt people care about hate speech.

        I should be in the USA. I could have destroyed him. :P

        Basically I would structure my reply to insure that whatever he said he attacks xxxs and Denies the Holocaust. Next I call up some Israeli's and dob in the station. Next minute, it hits the news and everyone condemns the station as anti-semetic and he loses his job. If only.

                  Maybe you should email a genocide denial group...I am sure they want to hear of a radio station that recognises the Armenian Genocide.
