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!

  • Numping with Socks on, Dodgeball, Fish Tacos, Baby Quiches -- an Insider's Guide to B

    This whole "numping" reference of last night got me thinking that there are may inside jokes that have resulted from funny interactions here.

    Off the top of my head, I know we have Peeps. Oh, boy do we have Peeps. But I wasn't around for the arrival of Peeps. I merely propagate it.

    Further into the genre of edible items, there are fish tacos, and even baby quiches. A mere reference to any of the above can send BBers into a frenzy. I am sure there are many others. I for one am really intrigued by what the baby quiches are all about.

    Would anyone like to elaborate on any of the established buzzwords? Or, for any old timers, share some more that I may have omitted? It could be fun for the originators to reflect, and also good for lurkers and new people to read, if only to validate the collective insanity. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

    I actually heard the fish taco story from hobson on a trail ride this summer and tears came to my eyes. But I am sure others could better elaborate.

    Anyway, let's spill it, for the good of the order, and create a primer on BB buzzwords. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

      Baby quiches started in a moment of profound silliness between Jeb and I. It's on the infamous "Dog Park Etiquette" thread.

      Of course, the "rest of the story" is that there were several long gone and VERY contentious threads going on that left the Gore v. Bush thread in the dirt (mud?) for sheer mudslinging. I'm not sure who, but someone came up with the completely off-the-subject discussion of baby quiches on one of those threads, and a few of us who were just a little sick of said thread leaped right on in, thereby defusing said thread with silliness...

      And so a tradition was born. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

      But the funniest thing of all was that I heard (and this is merely hearsay) that the person who was the subject of the aforementioned threads came to believe that "baby quiches" was code for a reference to said person. I had to giggle at the thought of such self importance. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

      Naturally, The Horror That Peeps Endure was a natural extension of the Plight of the Baby Quiches... [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

                    I suppose tack nosebands and VA horse trainer might need an explanation...

                    A certain BB'er (hereinafter referred to as She Who Was Banned But Came Back or SWWBBCB) had an alter and posted a thread that was so obviously designed to cause trouble (and Lord Knows, we LOVE trouble). Naturally, another poster, sort of famous for her gullibility (and opinions) in this area, took the bait with all the finesse of a starving shark.... And chaos ensued. That was truly our finest moment in Alterdom. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

                    Of course my deep dark secret is that I know exactly which other BBer encouraged, nay, practically dared SWWBBCB to post that thread. But my lips are sealed. For a price...

                      I was around for the Peeps and their plight...LOL I'm still dying to try Chicky Pippy cake. Never fully understood the "fish taco" thing (I really missed the boat there) I no longer call ear stuffings "pom poms"...they are most certainly "ear bunnies". GM stands for George H Morris...not General Motors. I remember WAY back and know what "the porch" refers to, and who is priviledged enough to sit on it....Chippendales also fall into that category.

                        We all have lots of loff in our hearts and all the peeps here (I loff them) really are the greatest.

                        But the newest one that I saw recently was "Approved Helmet Nazis," which I do hope will go away because that's really a horrid thing to say.

                            I sincerely hope that my little "numping" incident does not become a BB buzzword!

                            (But in case your were wondering, when numping, the correct release is key. Mr Hobson declines comment.)

                              Is it where cranky people like me sit, looking down upon whipper-snappers and yammering on about "in my day, we had to (blah, blah, blah) ... "

                              I'm so fine with that, if that's the case. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

                              Am I right?

                                ah, hobson... but is the loooong release superior to the short or auto release when numping, and will Mr. Hobson comment on that?

                                too late on the BB jargon issue, I'm thinkin'...

                                  We could, say, be on the porch with the blender and the margaritas and the peeps and nachos and fish tacos (put Merry on the opposite side of the porch, she thinks friends don't let friends eat fish tacos).

                                    Erin will be herding the cats in from the back 40, too many of us will make smutty comments about Joe Perry, a few will point and giggle at rust breeches while the others give a big hurray in their honor, the really brave will be wearing their brown field boots, we'll wax lyrical about releases, and Willem will watch the whole thing from the corral, shaking his head in disbelief and saying "Mein Gott."
