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.

  • LeBron James All Star Snub

    There's a lot of attention being given to this, so I'm curious to see what you guys think. Should LeBron have made the team? I think he should have. He's become his teams go to guy, he's picked up his game as the season has gone along, and he might already be one of the most levelheaded, mature locker room leaders in the league, and that's saying a lot for a guy that's 19. He'll be the best player in the NBA within three seasons and he'll have the Cavs back in the playoffs next year.

    It's easy to say that in the Leastern Conference Lebron deserved it. I think in some area's people are still way over their head in this guy. It would still be nice to have him go through a maturation process. I beleive some of his maturity has come from his coach, Paul Silas who is probably the best in reaching out to younger players.
    But if you're going to put him in...how about Carmelo?

      If he played at the small forward position, he might have had a better chance of getting in. That's probably where the Cavs will put him eventually anyway, not that they don't have Darius Miles on the team anymore. They just need a legitimate point guard. The way his scoring has gone up, and the way he can falter sometimes in the fourth, shows that he would be better playing off the ball.

      I really don't think he is overrated to any degree, though. He's less selfish than Garnett and he has moves that rival Kobe's. I've seen him in five games so far this year and he's never failed to amaze me. There isn't a person in the league that can cover him one on one with the possible exception of Ron Artest.

        I agree



        I think carmelo deserved to be in the all star game more than lebron.. secondly I don't feel sorry for them because they're rookies. besides if the people wanted to see lebron play in the all star game they should've voted him in.
        When the going gets tough, I just quit.

              Read that and you'll see why it's not a snub.

                I hate to sound like a complete loser, but I read every article in the times sports section every day. I already know about all the other snubs. All I can say is he's the best rookie I've seen since Tim Duncan.

                  I hope you don't think that makes him deserve to be an All-Star. You read EVERY article? I read every article on the teams I care about but neeeever would I read everything.

                    I just want to see him in the game because I want to see him go up against the best of the west. I've seen him completely take over games for spans of time, although rarely has he actually led his team to a victory over a quality team. I'd like to see what he could do if he were actually surrounded by teammates that had a clue.

                    And yes, I read every article.
