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 or Love?

    Hey everybody !!!
    During all my life I heard from my mom that "respect is more important than love". I didn’t agree with that statement long time. But I think I came to the conclusion that she was right!
    I would like to know your opinion. What do you think about this? Would you rather like that someone love you or respect you?

    Why can't it be both? Love can be grown out of respect and I doubt there is any way you can really, truly, deeply love someone unless you respect them as they should be respected...

      Agreed, this is a simple thing.. i dont see an issue in loving and tht love growing by the respect you have for whomever..

        I agree both of you... the true love for me is love whith respect... but the question is whould you like someone to really respect you or to love? Someone can love you just because you are a really kind persone, but he/she can not respeact you, can not respect your opinion and not ask for advice... and vice a versa, someone can respect you because of your knowledge, but not love you (even worse, hate you)... So, this is my question, which one do you prefer?

          I see, umm in that case i would want again for that person to both love me, and respect me, which will enable that love to grow.. i dont think we can differ and seperate the two and still expect each (love and respect) to be fulfilled in its fullest.. or atleast attempt too LOL/.. so, for me it would still be a drive for both..

            You cant have love without respect. It just doesnt work.

              I guess I do not agree with you... I know the family which had love when they got married (they called it like that, at least), but after some time they started to fight without any reason… they didn’t have any respect for each other, each of them thought that he/she is the smartest one and didn’t even listen to each other…
              As I understood you think that you can respect someone without loving, but you can not love without respecting (these are different statements for me)…
              What about me, I would like someone respect me but not love me, rather than someone love without respecting.
              What do you think about all these celebrities? Do you think that what they call love is a “real love with respect”? I do not think so…

                  I’m not talking about someone specifically… I’m talking in general. Yeh, I want that person (boyfriend, husband) both love me and respect me too… but this is not about that. The question is “in general……..”…
                  It’s not possible that everyone both loves you and respects you…

                    I'm sorry I needed to write vice a versa… But the mining of my message didn’t change from that…
