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.

        of course you enjoyed it...
        surfer said the same exact thing and you were freaked out cuz you guys think alike...
        it's like EVERYONE in this world, knowingly or not, has a purpose for living... people who lose that purpose they kill themselves...
        it's given
        we don't have to "come up" with that kind of an idea.

          You know, your criticizing nature can get a tad bit annoying sometimes.


          • #25
            who says that wasn't my point...(annoying you)

              Jahannam, this is not a chatroom...leave.

              Fire, that is exactly my point. But, what is more interesting is our ability to make things mean somthing to us. Look at everything you have. You put meaning into it. Take meaning away. Think about a dollar bill for one second. Its really nothing. Think about your family. Those bonds are not recognized in heaven. Do I love my parents because they gave birth to me? Why should I? (I do love my parents) But besides that, I put meaning into the title parents. Take it away, and they are just another person....

                Maybe the purpose of life is to find a purpose...who knows? If I was told that our existence means nothing and that I'm free of my obligations, I think I would still pursue my career goals. Not because I'm an ambitious nut but because I'm just...curious. What else is there to do but pursue satisfaction for your curiosities, right? Career or otherwise.

                I also think that religion plays a very important role in this "what is the meaning of life?" question. This is where I stumble; for the first time in my life I'm moving towards agnosticism and even atheism. It's not fun when your entire belief system is pulled out from under your feet.

                I recently had to write a lengthy paper in my philosophy class about existentialism. My topic was, "Can an existential atheist ultimately have hope?" Any thoughts on this? I'd love to hear what you guys think. :idea:

                  I think astrology is a science or a pseudoscience. I'm not sure but religion usualy involves some sort of deity. Hmm... :?

                    I don't necessarily get the "hope" part...hope for what?
                    but it's good you brought up existential atheism... the more I've read about those people's understandings of life, the more everything makes more sense to me...
                    but it sux how some people think existential atheists are people who have the "life sux lets kill ourselves" attitude.
                    so not true...
                    just cuz they think the "immortal" SOUL is a religious myth (which totally makes sense lol), and that Life has no intrinsic meaning, but that does not mean that life is not worth living.
                    they simply believe that we can give meaning to our lives through our actions... good and evil are up to the person's ideals (not your church's priest's)...
                    good stuff...
