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.

  • CBS Television's segment on the Armenian Genocide

    CBS Television’s news program will broadcast a segment on Armenian Genocide

    26.02.2010 19:41 GMT+04:00

    /PanARMENIAN.Net/ February 28, the award winning American news program 60 Minutes (CBS Television) will broadcast a segment on the Armenian Genocide: “BATTLE OVER HISTORY”. Bob Simon reports on what the Armenians call their holocaust - the 1915 forced deportation and massacre of more than a million ethnic Armenians by the Turks – an event that the Turks and our own government have refused to call Genocide, Armenian Council of America (ACA) told PanARMENIAN.Net

    The Armenian Genocide (1915-23) was the deliberate and systematic destruction of the Armenian population of the Ottoman Empire during and just after World War I. It was characterized by massacres, and deportations involving forced marches under conditions designed to lead to the death of the deportees, with the total number of deaths reaching 1.5 million.

    The majority of Armenian Diaspora communities were formed by the Genocide survivors.

    To date, twenty countries and 44 U.S. states have officially recognized the events of the period as genocide, and most genocide scholars and historians accept this view.

    The Armenian Council of America (ACA) is a grassroots organization dedicated to work with all political leaders, offering Armenian related news, analysis and resources for policymakers, media, students and activists, advocating issues important to Armenian Americans. The Armenian Council of America aims to strengthen U.S. - Armenia and U.S. - Nagorno Karabakh ties, the development of programs promoting sustainable economic growth and good governance in Armenia, while promoting the values and responsibilities of global citizenship.

    story to air on CBS 60 Minutes Sunday February 28th

    The Diocese of the Armenian Church wishes to alert the public that the long-running CBS news program 60 Minutes will air a segment on the Armenian Genocide during its broadcast of Sunday, February 28, at 7 p.m. (EST). (The scheduling information comes via the official website of CBS News, www.cbsnews.com; please consult your local listings for broadcast times.)

    The segment will feature an interview with Professor Peter Balakian, author of Black Dog of Fate and The Burning Tigris, and co-translator/editor of Armenian Golgotha. Reporting the story is senior correspondent Bob Simon, whose recent 60 Minutes work includes a segment on the Greek Orthodox Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople.

    A description of the Armenian Genocide segment, posted on the CBS News website, reads:

    “The Armenians call it their holocaust – the 1915 forced deportation and massacre of more than a million Armenians by the Turks. But the Turks and our own government have refused to call it genocide.”

      Re: 60 Min. - Armenian Genocide

      I want Armenians to be in the news for something other than Genocide for once. Really. It's getting unbearably annoying for me.

        This is not news but a mini-documentary. Meh, it is not that bad, there are some nations never in the news or in the news for all the wrong reasons (bombs).

          These documentaries are never really well-done but I'll give it a watch.

              Looks like the xxxs are serious this time about showing their muscle to the turck. They are simply using us for their own needs but i guess we will have to take what we can get. Hopefully this will translate into something good for us.

                I'm very curious to see how they're going to "report" this. Notice the very careful usage of words in the description. It doesn't look like it will be a report on the genocide itself, as opposed to a report on why there's a debate on using the word genocide to describe the events. Forgot to mention there's a tiny clip on YouTube:

                  Re: CBS Television's segment on the Armenian Genocide

                  Just read the comcast description and it avoided using the G word instead it called it massacre and deportation. This is sounding more like a warning shot by the zionists to turckey in preview of the approaching april 24 push to Genocide recognition. It is pretty sickening how the zionists use this issue to benefit themselves while the victims get nothing. Anyone want more proof that there is no god?
