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.

  • The Idiocy of Mother's/Father's Day

    Anyone with a sense of critical thinking can see that both Mother's Day and Father's day as inauthentic trumped up days that differ in their nature from any other holiday. There is a certain artificiality to it. A certain odor of something. Ahh yes, tis the odor of the State. I am sick and tired of having to "celebrate" Mother's/Father's day. It is entirely an unnecessary day made up by political beaurocrats of the nanny State. As secular holidays they bear the earmark of the progressive era in which both were idiotically constructed by the national elites who believed it was a good thing for people, on that one day, to stop and remember mommy and daddy. Every god damned day for me is a mother's and father's day. I know parents are essential but do we really need a god damned holiday for essential things? We might as well have a national toilet paper day or better yet A NATIONAL TAMPON DAY! The same idiocy is involved in Valentines day, another lame day. The codification of these days on the political altar of Washington into "holidays" is also coming from the same people that start wars, use nuclear weapons, drafts kids sending them to their death, taxing the populace, actually killing and bombing moms and dads in other countries, and basically creating social and economic havoc in every way possible but oh wait, by the way, it also reminds you to have a high regard for mom and dad. This mothers and fathers day I will be doing nothing special for mom and dad, because I have regarded them every other day of my life, and no stupid government sponsored day is going to change that.

      It is stupid, yes. My parents know I care for them. But it effects no loss upon me.

            That's a Holiday I like. It's one day that reminds us how much our mothers have done for us, how much we take their efforts and love for granted. Because face it, somehow we get accustomed to the motherly care and it almost becomes expected. Thank god women here and now have gained a sense of worth and make sure to demand what they deserve. In the earlier days a woman was expected to clean, cook, run errands, do homework with kids, take them to their sports, to the park to do laundry, to take them to school, take care of them when they are sick and on top of that give her husband good lovin and understanding. While men went to work in the office.... ohhhh such a tough day!

            By the way, I remember my college graduation day. It was interesting and sad at the same time that most of the graduating students were thanking only their mothers for support. Men and women alike. If I am not mistaken only 10 kids thanked both of their parents. Now that is just darn sad!

              I have never been through a graduation before but I did not think people ever had an opportunity to address the audience.

                  Fascinating.

                  I remind myself to not take my family for granted. I feel bad for people that need help from the government for that. On the other hand, I do not mind "being forced" to have a nice dinner.

                    Blah blah blah please save me the pc hogwash, and why remember only the mother? Let's face it is a bullshyt day that never needed to be legalized. It's crap, like everything else Government related. Furthermore, you don't need a lame day to remind you to care and respect and remember your mother. Why do you need a government to tell you how to think?
