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.


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.

    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!
    You guys need to join the military so you can stop fabricating conflict and "war" among fellow Armenians to give you guys a sense of purpose.

    As I told you when you first made these claims about Karo, mods cannot permanently delete anything and I can (and DID!) review all actions taken. Nothing you are claiming happened. Karo "deleted" (he actually moved to mod forum for review by the whole mod team) 3 posts which were off topic personal attacks, trying to push a moderator to act by violating the rules and out and out challenging him. The other offtopic posts which werent personal attacks were moved to their own threads, not deleted and evrryone involved was told via PM that their posts were moved and why.
    He initially before any of this, issues you a warning PRIVATELY so you would be less inclined to feel the need to resist as a rule because someone dared make a perfectly reasonably request of you that you stay on topic. What'd you do ? Basically say "f*ck off you little b!tch, ban me then!" Note you haven't been banned even! Bias indeed! Lol
    After you made claims of biased deleting of posts, I promised you by pm to look into it. I did so within a day and informed you it wasn't accurate and told you what I just explained above. What'd you say in reply? Basically insulted me personally too and said you don't want to talk me anymore. Again behaving not at all reasonably. Hmm... And you have the audacity to still make these accusations that we are biased? You know what? Leave then, if this forum is so awful and biased.

    I am closing this thread, as your complaint was addressed already. That you find reality unacceptable, is not my problem. You're trying to stir the pot publicly although something different happened in PM conversations with both Karo and myself. As I said, I already researched every one of your accusations personally and let you know what really happened based on the forum logs. Enough!
