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.

      One of the Greatest Actors to have ever lived

      well, I give a xxxx. Gregory Peck was not only a great actor, but a great person. You can see his honesty, and integrity, and his pure generosity shine through each and everyone of the roles he played. He was and still is something unique, unlike much of the wannabe actors and starlets that don't deserve any of the credit people give them.

      He was Atticus Finch in To Kill a Mockingbird, a role which AFI named the greatest hero in all of movie history.

      He was Joe Bradley in Roman Holiday( w/Audrey Hepburn), one of his best and widely remembered roles.
      Other films include : SpellBound, The Yearling, The Omen, Cape Fear.

      Classic Actor in the worlds most Classic Films.

      You've got to be kidding me. You seriously don't have any idea who he is? Or are you trying to be sarcastic.

              Okay so what.

              He was an actor, and he was hailed by AFI, but his overall contribution to mankind is still zero.

              I'm sick and tired of this celebrity worship culture.

              Who gives a xxxx if he died? I don't give a xxxx. Many people die every day and he is no exception.

              Okay, he was a great actor, and he died.

              Let's move on.

              The fact that yahoo news dedicated a whole article to that shows how much devoid of substance the American culture is.

              Whether it be Gregory Peck, Charleton Heston, anyone else from yore, or the modern xxxxty "actors" who rely on special effects to boost their "acting" potential, it is an entirely stupid idea to have shows about them and follow their lives and deaths.

              xxxx them is what I'm saying.

                Very true. This tradition of idolizing celebrities and following their every move is quite bothersome.

                Just now, a mother of four young children probably died of malnutrition, yet we don't seem to care as much.

                  So lemme get this straight, just because a film isn't in color and requires you to use your mind to imagine what the actual setting must look like, you deem it a waste of time??? At least gimme a better excuse.




                  So Psycho is a waste of time, because its b/w right? and so is Raging Bull, On the Waterfront, and anything that Charlie Chaplin did. Does your theory apply to telelvision as well? I Love Lucy, The Addams Family, The Munsters, Bewitched, and Superman to name a few. If The Godfather was in black and white, would you say it was a bad film??

                  The thing is, is that the generation of today would rather have hollywood force feed them easy to consume, generic movies than actually spending their time on films that have meaning and require you to think a little than just simply watch a movie.

                  You might not enjoy it because you didn't like the film, or the actor, but its really narrow minded to say that the use of color in a film determines if its good or not.

                  His contribution to mankind was not zero. He wasn't Newton or Shakespeare, or Mozart but he did do something ok?

                  "As one of the last giants from the Golden Era of Hollywood, Peck was known for his charitable and political fund-raising and other humanitarian efforts off-camera.

                  He was a charter member of the National Council of the Arts in 1965 and helped raise its $4-million first federal subsidy for the arts. He stumped California as state chairman of the American Cancer Society in 1964, and the nation as its national chairman two years later.

                  Peck was so successful at turning his mellifluous basso voice in support of such Democratic politicians as former Gov. Pat Brown that many suggested he run for governor, U.S. senator or even president. He chose not to run for office but continued his political activities. He once made a series of TV commercials that helped thwart the U.S. Supreme Court nomination of conservative Judge Robert Bork.

                  "To Gregory Peck an artist who has brought new dignity to the acting profession," former President Lyndon B. Johnson said in awarding Peck the nation's highest civilian award, the Medal of Freedom, in 1969.

                  "Gregory Peck has enriched the lives of millions," said the Democratic president and Peck's friend. "He has given his energies, his talents and his devotion to causes which have improved the lives of people. He is a humanitarian to whom Americans are deeply indebted." " - L.A Times

                  He was also very active in the Los Angeles Library System, where he invited many celebrities to be part of the reading program for children. Because of him, I'm sure hundreds of kids in Los Angeles who look up to these celebrities ( whether you like it or not) are reading today.

                  Okay, he was a great actor, and he died.

                  Let's move on.
                  Ok lets move on. I'm not the one who posted a topic entitled "Gregory Peck"

                    It was something called satire.

                    The only reason I brought it up was because it was on every news outlet.
