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.

    However, there is a difference in an existing thread forking into a new direction, and posters who start new threads containing completely off-topic material and posting it the wrong forum sections to satisfy their own perverse aims.

      Unless, of course, they are biased toward you - then they are wonderful and demonstrating their maturity and patriotism.

Yeah that's right, because life is much better where you are. Yeah people there should be patient, calm, reasonable and love their country, AND LIVE IN CONDITIONS WHICH YOU DON'T LIVE IN. Am I right? If you are such a patriot, why don't you make the sacrifice now? Why don't you give up your comfortable life in imperialist zionist world destroying west and move to Armenia or even all mighty Russia. Why don't you stop waiting for an imaginary perfect future that will never come when Armenia is good enough to meet your standards before you move? Yeah visit once a year, have a Kotayk in front of the Opera, and go back to your lives, and consider yourself a true Armenian. Maybe what you don't hear about is what happens after you leave, when the sunshine turns into snow, when the money from tourism is gone, when in parts of the country the little business that exists shuts down six months a year cause of the cold, and people have to wonder how they have to pay for their kids education or their kids cloths.

          And in case you never saw Armenia in the 90's, people didn't "run away from the chaos". Every time I would visit my Hayrenadarts relatives from Iran in the 90's I would see my relatives hungry, living on nothing, relatives having no way to feed their kids. So, don't make it seem like its people leaving Spain or Italy today cause things got a little rough. It
          was people having to leave because they couldn't watch their kids go hungry.
          Bravo, Mher..Bravo!!!

            @ Tomservo

            First, I don't think I was talking to you bro. Second, you most probably come from a family that hailed the Ottoman empire in its day ehvallah, ehvsalla! Turkqler chok guzel, chok guzel LOL! Get my point bro? But you are right, I should close my eyes and allow criminals in Washington to piss on the world and on Armenia only because I gots myself a job and en edumakation here in Amerika! Bro grow up. I am not talking about age you probably old I am talking about intellekt and wisdom.

            @ Mher

            Was I talking to you? Read what I write to Tomservo it about you also bro. Yeah bro, there are lost of problems in Armenia just like there are lost of problems in America and all the world. But you know what Armenia's problems today are less than Americas problems for most of Americas history. Get what Im sayin bro? Probably not. Keep pushing your nasty American stuff on my newborn Armenia and you will destroy the country. To me people like you are more dangerous to Armenia than Turqs.

            @ Freakyfreaky

            Bro do us all a favor run off to post some music in the music thread. LOL!

            @ Bellthecat

            I don't talk to animals LOL!

            PS: A word to the mod here. Keep doing what you are doing and all you will be moderating over is a dead forum LOL! Its already comatose. Oh and dont blame facebook because every time I visit here you have more than 100 visitors but 1-2 maybe 3 real posters? You know whats up with that people coming dont like the management. Even I was reading this blog for a long time but I don't post nothing much because I dont like the way you keep this place. Keep it up you are doing great job!!!!

              Changed that for you, if there are things like that just contact a moderator or you can even do it yourself.
              You should never argue with idiots because they will just drag you down to their level....then beat you with experience!!!!!!!

                  Politics is not about the pursuit of morality nor what's right or wrong
                  Its about self interest at personal and national level often at odds with the above.
                  Great politicians pursue the National interest and small politicians personal interests

                      Wow spoken like a man with true unity in mind. Perhaps you have lost touch with reality in constantly avoiding the problems that Armenia is facing, from a blockade to an active war. Ss we can't afford stupid disruptions that's exactly what the toorks are waiting for. You stand there with your ultra liberal view and are party to this destruction you speak of. How about we take stock of reality on the ground? How about we look at the problems we are facing from a realistic point of view? Of course we can't because you refuse to even consider the basics, instead you are off to la la land.

                      There is one thing I have been wanting to ask a lot of the people on this forum who consider it a treason to question anything in Armenia
                      Benedict Arnold spoke of himself as a patriot, that did not stop him from treason. Perhaps you might not have the intent, but action speak louder then words. Ever think about a single moment of weakness and watch what will happen to you under the toorks grip. As is you are under blockade, why don't you spend a little time reflecting on that, I see you never pay any attention to that! At least the blockade is coming from your true enemy!

                      If you think everything is so well in Armenia, why don't you move their right now? Yeah that's right, because life is much better where you are.
                      Spoken by a man 7,000 miles away himself...LOL

                      Yeah people there should be patient, calm, reasonable and love their country, AND LIVE IN CONDITIONS WHICH YOU DON'T LIVE IN. Am I right? If you are such a patriot, why don't you make the sacrifice now? Why don't you give up your comfortable life in imperialist zionist world destroying west and move to Armenia or even all mighty Russia.
                      They seem to be calm, and reasonable there is no protests. But of course that is exactly what you want them to do from 7,000 miles away yourself. See the problem is a reasonable approach and your voice is not one of reason, if it were it would not be easy to counter your very own words against you! Think about that!

                      Why don't you stop waiting for an imaginary perfect future that will never come when Armenia is good enough to meet your standards before you move?
                      There is an imaginary Neo liberal fantasy world that you live in. Fact of the matter is that you can't even land a airplane in NKR without some filthy toork shooting it down. This is the reality on the ground! Wake up man from 7,000 miles away. So why are you not moving? With such hefty words why don't you show us the way? Hmmm

                      Yeah visit once a year, have a Kotayk in front of the Opera, and go back to your lives, and consider yourself a true Armenian.
                      Shrug, sure beats sitting on your arse 7,000 miles away huffing a lot, not minding his extreme unrealistic views. However very quick to point his finger at someone else that does not take his point of view. All this while his first word in the thread was about unity!

                      And in case you never saw Armenia in the 90's,
                      Your point is about the 90? I mean right after the earthquake? Is that when you are referring too? How about the disaster of the Soviet economic system collapsing, with central heating systems no longer able to work is that what you are talking about? how about the war and blockade any of these matter in the equation of yours? No! Never have mention it once! You seen the hunger but not the destruction from the quake? This is not objective, this is extreme myopia at its best!

                      For what its worth, I think Karo has a very moderate voice, that is very much suited for a moderator. I think its just the fact that this forum has moved to far to the extreme on one side, that the moderate looks like the radical.
                      Never one to shy away from extremist views of course you would like Karo. After all he deletes the posts of your rivals and this is OK with you, this for a Neo Liberal is considered ok. God forbid a patriot speaks!

                      And what of Mos? What happened to one of our brothers? Why is he banned? Again this is ok with you? Or should you come together with your brothers for a change? What happened to Mos we kicked an Armenian out and had the Ballz to talk about UNIT?

                      Ever take a moment to reflect on reality you let me know!
