We have created this forum to promote the ideal of free speech by allowing discussion on controversial topics. Some of these topics were earlier blacklisted in order to maintain peace and avoid flamewars on All Empires - now they can be discussed.
 
The name of this forum, The Minefield, is not chosen randomly but chosen to indicate that this is a place where we watch our steps, conduct ourselves with caution and navigate within a good margin of the limits of the Code of Conduct.
Before posting, you might want to brush yourself up on these rules, and please remember, while we want to promote the highest level of freedom of speech, we do focus vigorously on faul behavior, personal attacks, negative attitude etc.

 
Only moderators can start new topics and members will need at least a 50 post count to participate in the topics.
Thus, if you would like a certain topic to be discussed and you think it's within the concept of The Minefield, ask a moderator to open such a topic. 
 
The following topics are default in The Minefield and cannot be discussed outside of this forum: 
  • Cyprus ( with regards to the Greek/Turkish conflict)
  • Kurdish/Turkish relationships
  • FYR Macedonia/Kosovo
  • Armenian/Azeri Massacres
  • Gujjar-Rajput relations
  • Armenian genocide
  • Israel/Palestinian conflict
  • Illegal Immigration into the USA (conflicts over Mexican/American relations

freedom of speech or not freedom of speech?
 
or well let you know after you've posted (not before)

It's too late. Now everyone knows that Turks are way better than Greeks/Armenians/Kurds.

Yes, you can all get individually blown up or shot in a real minefield.

I have to admit that during my stay here, there have been no serious problem between Turks, Greeks, Armenians, Kurds etc etc. At least I've never noticed.

you are new here, that's why.
But I still think things never got really ugly, as some think

Defeat allows no explanation
Victory needs none.

I think I must explain my silly "crapiest member" behavior. When dynamic equilibrium is changed the new one is established after series of stochastic movements. In case with behaviour norms changed by "AE beaurocrats" new borders of allowed actions should be determined by provocations. I tried to test these new borders. What we see now -- "crapiest country" topic is still allowed although not favoured but personal attacks are not. Do you thing it is reasonable and expected result? I don't. Smile

Why not start a 'Vent your ignorances' thread, get all that out of the way in there, and then everyone can get back to discussing real topics seriously?
