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.

  • Rate The Last Book You Read!

    This thread is an all purpose thread for the last book that you have read. No, magazines, publications, newspapers, articles, etc., do not qualify as books. And since I know there is a paucity of bookworms in this era on this planet, let alone this forum, I am not holding my breath on the page count of this thread. Right now I have insufficient time but I will in a later post expand upon the few books I have read over the course of the last few months.

    They are:

    The Automatic Millionaire by David Bach
    Thus Spoke Zarathustra by Freidrich Nietzsche
    When Will Jesus Bring the Porkchops by George Carlin
    Tao Te Ching by Lao Tzu

                  This book has to be a must read by all. It's so incredibly easy to read that I finished it in an hour. It's very fast paced, and it gets the message home really well. The book may sound like it's one of those automatic get rich quick schemes, but it's not. Inside, David Bach argues over and over that the key to wealth is not instantaneous, but over time. The message is so simple and so easy that you can't help but wonder "Damn, it's so obvious!" He basically expounds on the idea of saving, and investing, but suited to everyone. You do not have to be a financial guru or a wizard, nor must you understand complex finances or market forces to invest and be a millionaire. In the book, his example is a couple, Jim and Sue McIntyre, who were very mild-mannered and simple in appearance but were millionaires.

                  The idea that Bach expands upon is that you have to make the process of wealth planning, "automatic". In other words, when you open an account you should adjust for it to automatically deduct a certain amount from your check. The idea is to "pay yourself first". No matter what, bills, expenses, and debts always rear their ugly heads. You keep thinking "Okay, maybe have this I can finally save". But no, the concept is that no matter what, you must pay yourself first. So now that money is automatically deducted from your check, you do not have to worry and in time, it grows, with the power of composite interest. As Jim said, "Understand we're not talking about huge amounts of money. At the beginning, I was having less than fifty dollars a month deducted from my paycheck. But over time it really adds up".
