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.

  • Equality for Women

    I hope this comes to North America as I'm tired of paying higher insurance than women who have wrecked 4 cars.

    Insurance premiums to change after ECJ gender ruling

    Insurers cannot charge different premiums to men and women because of their gender, the European Court of Justice (ECJ) has ruled.

    The decision means that women can no longer be charged lower car insurance premiums than men, and the cost of buying a pensions annuity will change.

    The change will come into effect in December 2012, although customers could see premiums alter in the interim.

    Well it make sense in the insurance world to have men pay more than women. Men are inherently more risky, especially when it comes to driving. Females tend to be more conservative in their actions.

      That is sexist. Risk should be based on experience and driving history. You can't blame and charge 1 man and make him pay for something another man does. Women should also be paying for the damage their crazy boyfriends do. It's time for a level playing field. You can't have your cake and eat it too.

        It's not sexist. It's actually proven statistically and even scientifically that males take more risks than women. Of course, sex shouldn't be the only factor in insurance price, since history of the person is important, but the sex is still taken account of, and for a good reason.

            Re: Equality for Women

            At the age of 16 when people start driving, they have no record which means whether they are male or female they have done nothing wrong. At this point they should pay exactly the same amount for insurance. As they get into accidents and develop a driving history, this is when the rates should change to reflect on the poor drivers.

            The reason insurance companies rated women as having less accidents is because most of them were home makers at the time so they weren't on the road as often. Men were doing most of the driving so obviously the more you drive, the more prone you are to get into an accident. Statistics based on gender or race can't be used to determine insurance rates. That's like charging more if you're Asian because your eyes are always squinting and you can't see as well even though you have had no accidents.

              They should also consider who were, or what was the causes of these accidents.
              Let’s say men are more likely gets involved in accidents, but usually when having sex while driving it’s men who does the driving. When women are driving with their husbands, husbands don’t bittch them till they arrive to their destination, they would be looking out checking chicks and agreeing to everything thier wives are telling them. The opposite is true when men are driving with their wives beside them, women will bring out things that happened 2-3 years before and bittch about them, then they will criticize their men on everything they do, “Why did you take this road the other one is shorter”, “see if you have taken the other road, the one that I always take we wouldn’t be in this traffic right now” and it goes on and on. I think that’s why men are more involved in Accidents then women.

                Men also have much better hand-eye coordination and tend to be more focused on the road. I wonder why they haven't factored that into their equations.

                The problem is that much of the data compiled is based on who was involved in an accident. As drivers, we all know that many times the person who causes an accident is not involved in the actual accident. This is where I've noticed women (and Asians) having a notoriously negative effect on the road compared to adult males.

                This seems like the most logical method, which ensures that it will never be used.

                True. If they're going to discriminate based on sex, whats to stop them from discriminating based on race? Afterall, both are based on genetics. Rates based on race would actually be a better deal for me.

                  Well they wouldn't use race for socio-political reasons and because the uber-liberals have convinced enough people that race is a social contruct, as in race doesn't exist.
                  For the first time in more than 600 years, Armenia is free and independent, and we are therefore obligated
                  to place our national interests ahead of our personal gains or aspirations.

                    This also highlights a wider problem: Its okay to emphasize the inherent genetic differences between men and women when its women who benefit. Child custody laws also reflect this. Try highlighting the inherent genetic differences in other spheres such as employment, education, structure of the nuclear family, and all of a sudden, "science" turns into "sexism".
