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!

  • Missing BBers in New York and DC

    dodgegrrl got me concerned with the post about Inwhycee's whereabouts.

    Pick your brains for who hasn't been heard from. Try to think if they have mentioned in the past anyone who may know if our friends are okay.

    They could just disappear from the BB and we would never know!

      Not 100% sure, but .... TeriKessler lives outside the city and I don't think she works in New York, so she is probably okay. Don't know where her husband's firm is located, but I don't think it's in either of the towers of the WTC.

          I just ran a basic search for NYC and Morgan Stanley and found that Trooper works in NYC and we had a guest here named Karin who worked for Morgan Stanley in New York I believe. I am trying to go through the "Let's Meet" threads and see if anyone else is missing, or worked at the Pentagon, etc.

          Lily is said to be out of touch as well.

          So scary. Hope everyone is well.

            Trooper works on Broadway and 12th Street. She is fine. Since all businesses below 14th Street are closed right now she is not in the office, but her place of work was not damaged. It's a mile or more north of the towers.

                  Do any of the moderators have Lily's phone number? Could someone call her at either home or work? Do you know her last name - in which case, we can search online directories for her phone number.

                    nycitygirl posted that she works in the financial industry.

                    What about HSM? She is from "somewhere in NY" and also has not posted.

                    I hope these people are okay [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif[/img]

                      I heard from Kt1900 this morning. She worked at 7 World Trade Center. She got out safely. Thank the Lord. She seemed real shaken up. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif[/img]

                        I work and was 5 blocks from the WTC. In talking to people closer than I was, if they were not in the buildings than those people had a pretty good chance of being safe.
                        Most of the telephone service is not working regularly, hopefully some people just have not had a chance to be in contact yet.
                        I will be going back to work at the stock exchange either Fri. or Mon. I will be sure to express to my friends the outpouring of concern showed by all. In advance THANK-YOU.

                          We Kessler's are alive and well! I will mention, however, that Murray & I were in Manhattan on the West Side highway when it happened, and got an apalling eyeful while driving across the George Washington Bridge and down the turnpike. We were, of course, on the way to Leo's to ride Omar and Maxx. Watching the smoke blow across the sky, knowing how many innocent people were dying, was like standing outside Dachau watching the smoke billow out the chimneys. It was complete disrespect for the value of human life.

                          On the return ride home to Bedford, there were no towers at all.

                          Maria La Redola, a very sucessful younger AO who also rides with Leo, is a bond trader at Morgan Stanley, but was out of her office attending an appointment in Times Square. She and her husband are fine.

                            One more accounted for, lets hope that Inwhycee, Lily and our other friends and their families are all safe.

                            Oh, Teri (one R) Kessler, I am moist eyed and sniffling, I am so glad to hear another BBer is alright!

                              there could be a number of reasons why someone hadn't checked in....no internet access from home and office is closed, busy phone lines, IP not working....my IP server has been down since tuesday afternoon, is still out, I finally logged on last night via a different server, but haven't been able to retrieve email from my abest mailbox.

                              Let's keep faith that all will check in eventually. Despite the number of missing, I've talked to quite a few people who were in the two buildings when the planes crashed into it, and were able to get out. One woman in particular was also in the building when it was bombed several years ago, AND was on the LIRR when the mad gunman opened fire...it took place in the 3rd car, where she normally sits, but that day for whatever reason she ended up in the first car.

                                  I've seen her post a few times on the A/O hunter threads, where I've posted, and noticed that (if I remember correctly) she lives in NYC ????

                                    there is SOME Hope. Found out last night my cousin, who was working in the second tower at the time of the two plane crashes, somehow managed to escape with only bruises. He couldn't contact anyone until last night because there were no phone lines and his cell phone was, well, in the rubble.

                                      I am here - thank you for thinking of me. I have been too traumatized to even go online here.

                                      We are north of the city but much too close for comfort at this time. My family is intact thank god and no immediate loved ones lost. A couple of close calls.

                                      Does anyone know about nycrider? Irene? I know she lives and works in NYC I am scared to try to reach her by phone. If you know of her please post.
