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.


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.

          Actually a lot of them sing about money they DO have. Look at P.Diddy, Puff, whatever... He is rolling in it. His clothing line, Sean John, is only outsold at Nordstrom by Ralph Lauren.

          Rap and HipHop are definitely different. In your opinion they both suck, but they are not identical.

            With all the southern crunk bullsh*t, other rap songs turned into R&B nowadays, and overrated rappers such as Eminem and 50Cent, it seems as if true hiphop has been abandoned since 2pacs death in 1996.
            this is SO true.
            i know hiphop & r&b are 2 distinct styles, but im gonna group them together because they are suffering the same fate these days.
            u have expressed my thoughts exactly with what u said about 2pac. he was it, & everything seems to be falling into the pits since him..

            ive never been able to understand the musical taste of the general hiphop/r&b audience.. & the more i learn about music, the less i understand them!

            george benson has recently released an album which is pure r&b. for those who dont know who he is, he's a legendary jazz guitarist since the 60s & he made some commercial success as a singer in the 70s & 80s with some pop/r&b/soul albums (u must know some songs: This Masquerade, On Broadway, Turn Your Love Around, Nature Boy, The Ghetto, Breezin', Soulful Strut.... santana would quote his tunes quite a bit during his 15 minute guitar solos live).

            i heard one song (Six Play) from his brand new album (rel. Jan 2004) "Irreplaceable" & i think it sounds really hip. i wish all commercial r&b music sounded this good. why dont u guys try finding that song & tell me what u think. id like to get the opinions of ppl from the general r&b/hiphop listening public.

              Here's another true hip hop video for all of you. It's a more recent hip hop video, and has some flavor of the Wu Tang.

              Enjoy:Method Man - What's Happening

                  that's true ONLY if you think about the artists themselves...however their audience is mostly the young ghetto kids who are less than fortunate and can only dream of such wealth and luxury..sad for them when they sing TO IT, they are just dreaming away...and besides where did these now filthy rich aritsts come from? the same ghetto that looks up to their music, for the most part... if they were to grow up rich they would have never sang about money in the first place

                    Here's some positive type of hip-hop that I mark as true hip-hop, because the message in this particular song is good compared to what is regarded as typical hip-hop.

                    Enjoy: 2pac

                      People saying rap and hip-hop aren't the same are asking to be shot. I haven't listened to it but from what I've read, Method Man's new album isn't "real hip-hop". I'm sure he has a lot of commercial crap on it.
                      Rapper types make this world a horrible place.
