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.

  • Falling in Love

    Okay - this keeps getting brought up in every other thread, but it doesn't seem to have ever been discussed in depth. So what are your thoughts on falling in love?

    Have you ever been in love? How do you know that it's really love? Would you do it/do it again? Do you think you even have any choice in the matter? Does love scare you?

    And of course, I will get around to posting my own thoughts on the matter, even though I have said a lot about it on other threads.

    There is no such thing we are all animals and are following our instincts(i remembered the word). forget about love and just have fun

      Is there no instinct for being attracted to one person and one person alone to the extent that it will keep a family together, enhance the survival chances of offspring, and keep the gene pool going? Surely women at least must have this instinct.

      If this instinct does exist, then we would have no choice but to fall in love, but it would still happen

          I dont know about "falling in love" but I've sort of been on the edge of the plate of love and tasted it.

          It was a bit sweet yet sour, sort of like sweet torture. Sound confusing?

            We're also ignoring other kinds of love besides the romantic kind. All of you probably love somebody. So I'm going to say yes there is such a thing as love.

              ive loved in all forms

              but now speaking romantically...

              yes ive fallen in love once. i know its love because its nothing ive ever felt before, ive felt infatuation, obsession, lust, whole 9 yards. But when you cannot think, sleep, nor eat without thinking about someone, where you cry, when you cannot imagine your life or future without them, when there name resounds in your head.Its a beautiful thing, but its also extremly painful, it left a lot of scars on my heart, i like the idea but i also hate it a great deal.

                So love is an emotion or a feeling? Hmm something you cannot prove scientifically? Gee I wonder what it is and how it got here.

                  How's this for scientific fact. A person who has a broken heart can actually feel physical pain. And I'm not just talking people like me who love to have psychosomatic manifestations of emotional pain in the form of physical pain like a stomach ache. I'm talking honest to God your heart hurts, your body hurts. Yeah, yup. I will try to find the article and post it if anyone is interested. Is it strange that after all that we still want to be in love again? Yeah. Like I said before... The ends more than justifies the means (and then some) and all the hurt it takes to get there.

                    ck, I could not eat without getting terribly sick, I could go to sleep just fine but never slept more than three hours, and I couldn't sit or walk around without shaking - all in all, a pathetic mess. But hey, it only lasted a couple of weeks. It was worth it to be in love.
