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.

  • Categorizing expressed thoughts (types of writing)

    Relating to previously started discussion in the "Who the hell understands women?" thread, I want to point out a way of categorizing purposes of writing. The two categories include: (a) writing to express exactly whats on the author's mind and (b) and putting an idea into words, aiming to trigger slightly (or not so slightly) different interpretations and reactions from everyone.

    A short statement would usually work in the second category (such as with most "quotes"). My writing, on the other side, most of the time belongs in the first category.

    P.S. We, humans, love categorizing. I - personally - am a big fan. And the above is merely one way of categorizing writing.

        I don't think a babee's supposed to possess thoughts of that nature.

        She's a little too old for you, I must say.

        That would just be WRONG!

          spiral, I am confused. If you replied with telling me that my brain cannot calculate the distance between me and other objects, while both my eyes are open (I am looking at the monitor and it seems a few meters away and getting further!), I'd be as confused, although the former is true.

            Spiral wanna go out with me?

            I know this really nice fast food joint down the block and no they don't reuse their oil for the fries. The manager has one eye, and the workers are pimply faced teens. It's quite the lovely place to spend a Friday afternoon, sipping on your RC Cola or 7up. Yea they cant even have Coca Cola or Sprite in the fountain, all they have is RC Cola, and 7up. take your pick.

                  Andromida...your avatar is...umm....uhhh....I dont know WHAT your avatar is. :?

                  and Anonymouse, I’m gonna pass, I’m afraid of one-eyed men. This one guy came up to me, had one eye, and said, “you have nice eyessss” and he had this look on his face, like a starving man would look at a steak or something, so yeah, no one-eye men!

                    But I don't have one eye. I have two eyes. Two hands. Two feet. Two of everything.
