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.

    Originally posted by loseyourname It's funny you bring that up. We ran a test in my bio class last semester to see how many dominant and recessive alleles each student possessed out of - I think - fifteen genetic loci. I tested positive for thirteen dominant alleles, which was the most in the class.
    How did you get 15? I only counted 10. Which ones did you test dominant for anyway? I'm just curious

          One can argue, ala Hitler that all societies which have resulted in mixture, and where the original creators of the civilization have mixed with those who were not originally part of the civilization, have fallen never to rise again.

          This is why racially homogenous regions such as northeast Asia, and most of Europe have been above and beyond those who have been mixed.

            I suppose this is also why the US is the world's only superpower. The simple fact is, nations and empires rise and fall. With the exception of the middle ages, civilization has only risen.

              My ancestors have all been Armenian, my great grandma usto be from old Armenia (now Turkey), the only mixture in my family was recently with my grandparents, So, I have a mix of purebread Armenian, Russian, and Goergian. I read somewhere that mixtures of too many races can eventually lead to a birth with a defective child. As far as what I write on those applications, its usually caucasion unless there is an other box then I'll write Armenian. I herd that Armenians in the U.S. are acutally not considered to be a minority, because of the simple reason that we don't write it in those little boxes where it has the minority selection, and therefore we are exempt from minority advantages, such as support/money from the government. I know that now the Armenian organization that is involved in benefiting the Armenian community is in the process of making us be acknowledged as a minority.

                why would you want to be recongnized as a minority? we are white, there is nothing more to it.

                By the way have you guys realized how diaspora Armenians usually have lighter hair and eyes than us Hayastantsis?

                    I agree on both accounts. My eyes are blue.

                    Actually, my great grandmother, whom is still alive and survived the genocide has blonde hair blue eyes. She says most Armenians did before mass rape started through all the years of persecution.

                      My brother has dark black hair and dark eyes, and darker skin, and I have light brown hair, and brown eyes, and a whiter skin. In general though, that probably is a trend that really exists. I did see a lot of blond blue-eyed Hayastantsis in Armenia though. More than I had ever seen in diasporans.
