Forum rules and no-advertising policy

As a participant on this forum, it is your responsibility to know and follow our rules. Please read this message in its entirety.

Board Rules

1. You’re responsible for what you say.
As outlined in Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, The Chronicle of the Horse and its affiliates, as well Jelsoft Enterprises Ltd., the developers of vBulletin, are not legally responsible for statements made in the forums.

This is a public forum viewed by a wide spectrum of people, so please be mindful of what you say and who might be reading it—details of personal disputes are likely better handled privately. While posters are legally responsible for their statements, the moderators may in their discretion remove or edit posts that violate these rules. Users have the ability to modify or delete their own messages after posting, but administrators generally will not delete posts, threads or accounts upon request.

Outright inflammatory, vulgar, harassing, malicious or otherwise inappropriate statements and criminal charges unsubstantiated by a reputable news source or legal documentation will not be tolerated and will be dealt with at the discretion of the moderators.

2. Conversations in horse-related forums should be horse-related.
The forums are a wonderful source of information and support for members of the horse community. While it’s understandably tempting to share information or search for input on other topics upon which members might have a similar level of knowledge, members must maintain the focus on horses.

3. Keep conversations productive, on topic and civil.
Discussion and disagreement are inevitable and encouraged; personal insults, diatribes and sniping comments are unproductive and unacceptable. Whether a subject is light-hearted or serious, keep posts focused on the current topic and of general interest to other participants of that thread. Utilize the private message feature or personal email where appropriate to address side topics or personal issues not related to the topic at large.

4. No advertising in the discussion forums.
Posts in the discussion forums directly or indirectly advertising horses, jobs, items or services for sale or wanted will be removed at the discretion of the moderators. Use of the private messaging feature or email addresses obtained through users’ profiles for unsolicited advertising is not permitted.

Company representatives may participate in discussions and answer questions about their products or services, or suggest their products on recent threads if they fulfill the criteria of a query. False "testimonials" provided by company affiliates posing as general consumers are not appropriate, and self-promotion of sales, ad campaigns, etc. through the discussion forums is not allowed.

Paid advertising is available on our classifieds site and through the purchase of banner ads. The tightly monitored Giveaways forum permits free listings of genuinely free horses and items available or wanted (on a limited basis). Items offered for trade are not allowed.

Advertising Policy Specifics
When in doubt of whether something you want to post constitutes advertising, please contact a moderator privately in advance for further clarification. Refer to the following points for general guidelines:

Horses – Only general discussion about the buying, leasing, selling and pricing of horses is permitted. If the post contains, or links to, the type of specific information typically found in a sales or wanted ad, and it’s related to a horse for sale, regardless of who’s selling it, it doesn’t belong in the discussion forums.

Stallions – Board members may ask for suggestions on breeding stallion recommendations. Stallion owners may reply to such queries by suggesting their own stallions, only if their horse fits the specific criteria of the original poster. Excessive promotion of a stallion by its owner or related parties is not permitted and will be addressed at the discretion of the moderators.

Services – Members may use the forums to ask for general recommendations of trainers, barns, shippers, farriers, etc., and other members may answer those requests by suggesting themselves or their company, if their services fulfill the specific criteria of the original post. Members may not solicit other members for business if it is not in response to a direct, genuine query.

Products – While members may ask for general opinions and suggestions on equipment, trailers, trucks, etc., they may not list the specific attributes for which they are in the market, as such posts serve as wanted ads.

Event Announcements – Members may post one notification of an upcoming event that may be of interest to fellow members, if the original poster does not benefit financially from the event. Such threads may not be “bumped” excessively. Premium members may post their own notices in the Event Announcements forum.

Charities/Rescues – Announcements for charitable or fundraising events can only be made for 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organizations. Special exceptions may be made, at the moderators’ discretion and direction, for board-related events or fundraising activities in extraordinary circumstances.

Occasional posts regarding horses available for adoption through IRS-registered horse rescue or placement programs are permitted in the appropriate forums, but these threads may be limited at the discretion of the moderators. Individuals may not advertise or make announcements for horses in need of rescue, placement or adoption unless the horse is available through a recognized rescue or placement agency or government-run entity or the thread fits the criteria for and is located in the Giveaways forum.

5. Do not post copyrighted photographs unless you have purchased that photo and have permission to do so.

6. Respect other members.
As members are often passionate about their beliefs and intentions can easily be misinterpreted in this type of environment, try to explore or resolve the inevitable disagreements that arise in the course of threads calmly and rationally.

If you see a post that you feel violates the rules of the board, please click the “alert” button (exclamation point inside of a triangle) in the bottom left corner of the post, which will alert ONLY the moderators to the post in question. They will then take whatever action, or no action, as deemed appropriate for the situation at their discretion. Do not air grievances regarding other posters or the moderators in the discussion forums.

Please be advised that adding another user to your “Ignore” list via your User Control Panel can be a useful tactic, which blocks posts and private messages by members whose commentary you’d rather avoid reading.

7. We have the right to reproduce statements made in the forums.
The Chronicle of the Horse may copy, quote, link to or otherwise reproduce posts, or portions of posts, in print or online for advertising or editorial purposes, if attributed to their original authors, and by posting in this forum, you hereby grant to The Chronicle of the Horse a perpetual, non-exclusive license under copyright and other rights, to do so.

8. We reserve the right to enforce and amend the rules.
The moderators may delete, edit, move or close any post or thread at any time, or refrain from doing any of the foregoing, in their discretion, and may suspend or revoke a user’s membership privileges at any time to maintain adherence to the rules and the general spirit of the forum. These rules may be amended at any time to address the current needs of the board.

Please see our full Terms of Service and Privacy Policy for more information.

Thanks for being a part of the COTH forums!

    And "little girl" is a misnomer - she is around 12 years old. She's almost a teenager and old enough to know better or to be taught -very quckly - about respect for other's property and animals.

    I'm still shocked and amazed that you continue to defend someone that you a) don't know, b) won't ever have contact with, c) has done things that would get adults arrested immediately, d) has no empathy as she let her grandmother suffer worrying about her dogs, and e) OBVIOUSLY premeditated everything she did, as she LIED to her gran about walking the dogs and instead went to cause trouble.

    I really hope you never reproduce. Your spawn will apparently get away with anything and everything they do. God forbid you abuse them by disciplining them, right??
    Refresh my memory. Where have I defended the child's behavior?

    Comment


    • You implied that the reason for the brat's behavior was the OP's anti-social personality, which you had absolutely no basis to comment on and makes absolutely no difference in the outcome.

      You advocated every avenue but something that may actually fix the problem and keep the girl away from the OP's property. "Talk to her parents before doing anything else" - well, obvioulsy they're worthless when it comes to setting boundaries.

      You don't have to stand on a rooftop yelling "THE GIRL IS INNOCENT" to defend her. You have continuously taken the indefensible position of blaming everything and everyone in this girl's life for her behavior.

      When is she old enough to own up? What if she were 13? What if she were 21? Would she be old enough to be responsible for her actions then?

      I vote that when she's old enough to mouth off to an adult and then premeditate revenge, she's old enough to be punished for the things she does. And HARSHLY.

        You seem to be crediting me with saying, and thinking things I never said or thought. I did say to talk to her parents, but my reasoning was that it would reduce the risk to the OP of being prosecuted for threatening, or harming the child. Assault is a good charge to avoid, especialy when a minor is involved. Beyond that show me a quote to support your argument against me.

          But I do know people who have been sued for bogus reasons. Guess I haven't done the math.
          I think the thing that skews the numbers is that the few people who actually do sue, will sue a LOT. Anybody. At the drop of a hat. For any reason.

          I know of one family where the mother and daughter were involved in something like four different lawsuits between them. At the same time. Four totally unrelated matters- the only common factor was that these people saw an opportunity to get a financial settlement, and they went after it. Four times. That I knew of, during a short period.

          I tried to stay far away from them.

          Again, best of luck to the OP.

          • Oh, for cryin' out loud, fascinated. Get over yourself and your preoccupation of defending all your [edit] comments. You are certainly unfascinating to most of us - I say let's call it a day and hope OP and Granny can sort out the li'l darlin'. Sadly, school is not in for another month or so - yikes!!!

              I'll say it: The kid is a sociopath.

              Nice 11, 12 or 13 year old girls do not chase horses with sticks and they do not mouth off at adults. Not even understimulated highly intelligent girls. I know this because I have highly intelligent girls who span that age range and when they are bored and told to entertain themselves they certainly do not do so by going to the barn and chasing horses with sticks, nor do they "walk" the dogs by tying them up and then wandering off to terrorize the neighbors. This is antisocial and unacceptable behavior by any stretch of the imagination and making excuses for it is just wrong. I don't care what kind of family life the girl had, by that age she certainly knows right from wrong and how animals should be treated. This is the kind of behavior that will only escalate if it isn't nipped in the bud.

                I am still trying to find out exactly what the offending comment was. I hope you don't decide not to breed to my stallion like the other person did.

                • Breed to your stallion? No, well just send 12 year old girls over to play with him and you can babysit for free

                            I will let you know. I believe that it is a crime to threaten to harm a person over the internet. I think discussing plans and methods to do so might be as well. I am curious to learn if the paint ball advice is considered to be harmless fun. Are you of the opinion that nobody on COTH bb would ever do something rotten to a kid?

                                This is a child, no one knows her name or anything about her yet the venom is spewing. This spitefull tone and attitude towards people works against horse owners every time. If my kid came home and told me that someone had yelled at her, I would find that person and make their life very, very miserable. If my child were at fault I would take responsibility, but nobody is going to get away with going after my child.

                                  • Note to the OP:

                                    Can you have the police test the fence posts for fingerprints BEFORE the child touches them to put them up? Just so there is absolute proof of her actions, in case you need it later.

                                    Obviously, once she touches the posts to put the fence back up, there will be no fingerprint evidence to verify that she was the vandal who tore down the fence in the first place.

                                    Again, document, document, document.

I used the term "wicked witch of the cotswAld" in acknowledging the OP's statement that she was NOT in agreement with the violent solutions to which I object. The confusion here may result from poor reading comprehension. I believe I said it would be a better bet that the op was anti social than the kid being a sociopath. Based on subsequent postings by the OP, it appears that the longshot won this time. If that analogy went over your head, maybe someone will explain it to you.

                                          There are several posts from different people detailing ways to hurt, and scare the child. Paint ball guns, electric fence, vicious dogs, vicious horses, ways to communicate threats, etc. Now everyone but the people who said those things is claiming that they were tongue in cheek comments. My initial posting was what I felt to be good honest advice. The rest was in response to what I see as nasty people saying nasty stuff about a little kid, and I am a big fan of little kids.
                                          I will put in a good word for you with Mod 1 at The Coach Stop tomorrow.
