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.

    "Respect more important than love?" ... sounds to me like someone's mom was trying to prep her for an arranged marriage to a "respectable" man. Just the values that probably were passed down to her from her parents.

    Note that "arranged" doesn't mean "forced" ... it could just as well come with proper mental conditioning (such as shown by the topic of this thread) and brain washing over the years since birth into adulthood.
    this post = teh win.

            Don't you always complain about your parents and say you want to move out because you hate living under their rule??

                hey what? arranged marriage ? I think my mom is the one of the people who hates arranged marriages... vice a versa, my friend, my mom didn't want me to get married soon, and til now she doesn't think that I should hurry... she got married because of love (and with huge respect as well), and I'll do the same... but this is not about man-woman relationship (repeting 5th or 6th time ), this is about usual people; friends, relatives, teachers etc.... I think at th biggining you need to read the previose pages, and my explenations... maybe in that case you would understand what this question is about...

                  im beginning to understand what LOVE actually means... it doesnt mean anything unles you have someone to give it a meaning.... the respect, the trust- its all trivial unless someone shows you how this all should be and gives you something to believe in and someone to trust... i think love is one of the most simplest yet complex notions in life...its just a huge anstract .... argh i hate how the word itself is thrown around so loosely-- "you think you know, but you have no idea" thats what comes to mind right now.... its all too confusing- we all may have a notion of love- but we will not have a full understandin of it until we have
                  1) loved and lost
                  2) been loved but not loved in return
                  or
                  3) done one of the two and then actually fell in love and are at the currrent state
                  i know this is not concrete- thats just what i think- itdoesnt aply to everyone and anyone- thats just what i think ~

                    My mom told me that "With the proper chromosome count, love and respect will follow!"

                    In my case, I have neither! Yet look at how happy I am!
