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.

    I thought Salome was hilarious. Considering it only takes about an hour to read, at most, I say it's well worth it.

    Let's see, what am I reading now . . .

    Grey's Anatomy (brushing up on the brain)

    Abolition of Man - C.S. Lewis

    Fundamental Principles on the Metaphysics of Morals - Immanuel Kant

    Explaining the Human Genome - Not sure of the author

    The Future of Life - Edward O. Wilson

    Also some book that discusses the major pre-Socratics. I can't remember what it's called.
    Wow, loser, finally you're reading some C.S. Lewis and Kant.
    Achkerov kute.


    • I am reading "A.C.F." and it sucks.


      • I desperately want to finish New Grub Street, but it's too boring..... one of those books that you put down for a year or so and pick it up later on to continue... Like the Scarlet Letter...


        • I am presently reading a book which I stole from my agoomp.
          It's Hrant Matevosyan's "Mer Vazke". Beaaaaaaaaauuuutiful book. That man sure knew how to write (he passed away either early this year, or late last year). I recommend it to all.

          Also, I'm reading Taner Akçam's new book "From Empire to Republic: Turkish Nationalism and the Armenian Genocide", which I must complete before he comes to Montreal on Friday.


          • Lemony Snicket: A Series of Unfortunate Events
            The test of a first-rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposing ideas in mind at the same time and still retain the ability to function. -- F. Scott Fitzgerald


            • Just reviewing Calculus and Physics texts to get ready for the upcoming year. Only fiction I've read lately is Illusions by Richard Bach.
