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!

      6'7", 250 lbs., used to play pro football, but photographed here in a steroid-free state.

      And as you can tell from the photo, he can't keep his hands off my ass.

            Willem (and Coreene and Merry and all other CA people)... My plane lands at 11:36am on Saturday, January 25th!!! And I don't leave until Feb. 2nd!!! I can not wait. There's an In & Out near LAX isn't there?? [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

            OK, no dancing on bars - and rarely even in bars unless I have consumed copious (sp) amounts of liquor. Haven't flashed anyone since I was in high school... I'm feeling rather like a slacker. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

            I have to admit - L&O made me think of this - I am IN LOFF WITH Jesse L. Martin. I loffed him on Ally, I loffed him on 413 Hope Street (did anyone else ever see that??) and I loff him on L&O.

            And now I have to think of an OT... Hmmm....

                    Of course, it is so embarrassing when my coworker walks past my Work Stall to his and sees it, but he is used to it by now. I just shout "Adjust, adjust!"

                      Because for that much, I would be happy to.

                      SO, meanwhile, one of the brain surgeons (no pun intended) at the barn the other day was moaning about how "sad" it was that NBA players had games on Xmas day, "surely they would be happier with their families." Well, let's review: some of 'em are getting 30k plus per game, then they'll whup some cuties afterwards, then go to home or hotel for Xmas dinner. Oh yeah, really sad.

                        I agree...Mr.AAJumper had to work Christmas day too, and he didn't make anywhere near 30k for one day!!! Although people do often drop off goodies at the fire station for the guys to enjoy.

                          OK - a commercial for Webster just came on!! (I am watching a tape from 1984 - the Olympics no less) Dude - Jordache!!! OMG this is hysterical!!OK, sorry, got distracted by the Atari 2600 and Jordache jeans...

                            The piccies don't have to be of single men, just pretty ones. And beauty may always, of course, be in the eye of the beholder. After all, I send Portia a piccie of a friend who I think is to die for and she politely did not agree.

                            OMG and who saw Cary Grant with Grace Kelly on the teevee yesterday? He is just SUCH the matinee idol.

                              At times like that I would have found it wholly appropriate to scream "Hans off!"

                                I've already told Portia that if she ever decides to move to NY, her future husband is waiting. I've tried explaining to him how I know her, but he just looks at me like I'm a little crazy.

                                I have tried out many potential Mr. Lily's, but they all seem to be i-bankers who only want to talk about how hard they work and how much money they make. They are pretty, though. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

                                Jesse L. Martin is so cute! I met him in high school when my English class went to see Rent and we met the cast. He's even cuter in person than on L&O, if possible!

                                    It is a friend of mine who is just such a hottie.

Tall, smart, witty, stunningly handsome, urbane, has his hair in little dreads - and THE BEST BUM ON THIS PLANET OR ANY OTHER. Round, firm...I was sufficiently 'buzzed' at Hans' Christmas party to reach over and give it the good ole Charmin squeeze but my boy Hans knows me too well and had his arms around my shoulders at the time - in a kinda constricting, vise grip way.

                                      When I was working in Boston, I was eating dinner with some work friends (all guys, most of them married and all over 30), and someone I know from college happened to be eating at the same restaurant. He came over, we talked, nothing exciting. As soon as he left the table, my friend Mike said, "Wow, did you see that guy's ass? You could bounce a quarter off it!" So, everyone from my office now calls my college friend "the guy with the great ass."

[img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] I was not sure, just that's who he reminded me of (sorry again!!) and I was going to say he has SUCH a fake looking chest (Steve Perry that is [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img] )

                                        As for where we are staying, I have no idea... Poncho's Mom won't be in CA until Wednesday...
