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.

      No, I know. I wasn't talking about (the egocentrism again ). I mean that's what Armenians (should) strive to do in the Diaspora.

        Oh, Gegev, always an interesting voice to hear from. I'm not sure if I even want to bother explaining to you what this thread is about, because you never seem to care anyway. But, whatever, I'll try again to get through that thick skull of yours:
        The matter isn't in the skull form, but what’s in it. I see yours is a bit shallow & sick. But even though, I guess you managed to find some clients, for you, here.

        Gegev, the original point was so that outsiders could see what you, the insiders, thought was the "ideal Armenian man." every culture has their own standards. There is no "universally accepted concept" -- if there was, then there would just be the "ideal man" and standards, but every culture upholds different values. I wanted to know specifically what they were for Armenians.
        The "minority" values are formed not only by their nation's culture, but mostly affected by their sexual orientation; for you, for instance, the "ideal Armenian man" could be; just a woman like you. So don't try teaching, before taking some additional proper/relevant elementary school classes first.

        The "minorities" (me) did not ask what the "ideal Armenian man" was with the intention of "accepting" or "rejecting" the values that Armenian males hope to aspire towards. I simply wanted to know as I am of a different culture than you.

        As usual, you are quick to assume this idea of "Western 'Democracy' Minorities". I find it hard to believe you got your master's degree in business administration with the way you always bring this up. Since you insist on going way off into lala land, I'll try to be very simple so that you can understand: there was no hidden agenda to change the values of Armenians.

        If you even bothered to read this, I hope you were able to get your head out of your xxx and stop nibbling on your colon long enough to be able to understand the basic ideology that everyone else seemed to have understood (except you, as per usual) before entering this discussion.
        Understanding you, in this, is possible after having the same symptoms you have; may God save me. This is the last communication with you.

        Bye minority’s teacher!

          Gegev, it's a figure of speech. I assumed you were intelligent enough to understand that. I'm not surprised to be mistaken.

          I'm not "teaching" anything. In fact, I'm asking TO BE TAUGHT about what YOUR culture's ideal man is. I don't give two ****s about your opinion of my sexual orientation. You proved incapable of having a discussion about it, to even rant about it, especially after I dedicated a whole thread for you to do so. In result, you are utterly and completely wrong as usual. The "ideal Armenian man" cannot be a woman like me because that's not what Armenians value. I suggest you go back to school and learn how to read before you attempt to insult me. I have no problem with your bickerings -- at least be smart about it and have some sort of basis.

          I don't think God would taint his hands over your blackened, forsaken soul. I never asked you to understand me. I'm grateful it's the last -- I don't want my IQ dropping.

              No, it was "well," I was modifying your statement that Armenians have had to adapt to the cultures they've lived in. I was modifying to say, adapt, yes, but we strive to do that without great cost to our Armenian culture.
