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.

  • Slipping Political Commentary Into Movies

    Well, the most obvious I can think off the top of my head now is The Day After Tomorrow had horribly obvious political grandstanding, besides being a stupid as_s movie.

      Nothing is more annoying that Bruce All Mighty. God comes down from the heavens and picks a total idiot to grant some powers to. And we learn that it just ain't easy being the lord. Boo freakin hooo. However I must admit splitting the tomato soup like the red sea made me chuckle.

        Pat, I think what they were going for, even more so than the "ain't easy being lord almight", is that everything happens for a reason, even if you don't understand that reason at that moment, or never will. Don't know why the cut out that one scene where god goes through the different scenerios of some of the lives that Bruce messed with, and explains why while Bruce though he was improving the situation, he actually ruined everything.

                I watched The Day After Tomorrow about 15 days ago, and I thought it was a dumb movie. It was full of propaganda about how good third world countries are, and therefore we should open our borders to them for immigration bla bla bla..

                It's by far the worst movie of this year, even if you don't take into account its propaganda value.. I can't believe I paid to go and see that BS.
                Arafat liked ordering his men to shoot Lebanese babies, because their govnt accepted the Palestinian refugees with open arms, instead of giving him an excuse to send his suicide bombers on the Lebanese too.. "Either you're against us, or against us."

                  I saw the movie for free and I don't see how third-world nations were portrayed as being all that wonderful aside from the silly speech by the president at the end of the film. Heck, Mexico wouldn't even allow the Americans into the country (despite the fact that they faced imminent death if they couldn't get in) unless the US relieved all Mexican debt. Such a petty act of extortion is not a positive thing. Either way, that was a very small part of the movie, and I think it was meant to be ironic anyway. It was probably the only joke I actually laughed at.
                  Sweet is the lore which nature brings; our meddling intellect misshapes the beauteous forms of things: we murder to dissect.

                    The whole point of the movie was that speech at the end of the movie, loseyourname... the whole movie was made around it, to accommodate the propaganda it was supposed to represent.
