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.

  • Ah DMK, didn't you read Cholly Knickerbocker's column this morning? VTrider was caught in a car with an unidentified male (one of those ones) - her mug shots are all over the papers. Hugh Grant was quoted as saying, "Thank god I've finally found someone to share the spotlight with." Guido's bailing her out. Mungo disappeared with Jair a few hours ago. Moesha's on the warpath. Seems the SAG strike has been set for June - And Heidi's bustier is experiencing a similar problem.


    • I am thinking "Bill" is infringing on the Dick Francis copyrights..... [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

      • Dearest Canter, at least a bustier will keep in place the goods.

        Sources, yes, your 'client' DMK, have told me you recently had to purchase knee pads.


        • Canter, dahlink, she was holding zee vodka bottle ven she made me confess your secret... you understand, yes?
          Your crazy is showing. You might want to tuck that back in.


          • had I paid attention to those black and white movies, I would be slightly more fluent in "Movie star".... would it help if I watched "E!"?

            • Winglet "D" won't work - you gotta live large.
              About those knee pads? I'm on the SAG volleyball team okay?


              • I have learned my lines and understand my motivation .But I do not see my character on any list for rehearsals?


                • They signal that I am a timeless one, one of the walking undead! Like the mermaid seducing sailors in the fog. Hungarians are all too stubborn to lay down even when they are dead.

                  However, Moesha can the clicking shoes, I do my thing barefoot.

                  • Has anyone heard from him today? He isn't answering his office, home, summer home, winter home, car, truck, trailer phones...nor is he answering his beeper, email, ebooks, smoke signals....

                    Where has he gone? He can't just leave us with no direction like this!!!!


                    • Is it possible that MOesha has had yet another nervous breakdown from the pressure we put him under?
                      ORRRRRRRR has he gone out to do some personal investigations of the shady seemy side of Baltimores Drag Scene?
                      I am sure that he will reappear soon in his most "snarky piss and vinegar self"
                      Can't wait!


                      • Has anyone placed a call to that Arizona clinic where he's a frequent guest? They specialize in, uh...."disorders" of the type which afflicts him...


                        • for a relocation of the breeding farm shoot, most likely. Humph! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_mad.gif[/img] Rokeby would be sooo lovely but he has this THING for keeping us in the Balmer metro area.
                          "If you would have only one day to live, you should spend at least half of it in the saddle."


                          • Hmm....ETBW....maybe there needs to be revolt if said director can't see the way to shoot at Rokeby - he CAN be replaced, don't you think?!


                            • All right, I'm going to make my one and only request.

                              I will in no way shape or form eat any kind of fish/seafood. Stuff is nasty, and I'm allergic to half of it. (Isn't that sad? I live in Baltimore and can't eat crabs. Probably why I've been relegated to the middle of nowhere, PA)

                              Yeah, not much of a diva, am I? Can I be known as the nice one around here? [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]



                              • VTRider- Most Cooperative award, ohhhh I am pleased. But for GOD'S SAKE MY DRESSING ROOM! Everyone else has a trailer, can my dressing room atleast have a mirror? I'm sick of hiking to makeup all the time come ON! Wardrobe is doing a great job, Jair is scarying me alittle, but I'll get over that. AH! Make up is calling me for a retake of the Old Bay scene. Tell them I'll be over in ten I need to stop for some ice tea!

                                Well, I made it back


                                • Darlings, please forgive me for being so tardy in my correspondence.

                                  After my Genre cover hit the racks a few days ago I got a really interesting phone call from David Geffen, requesting I accompany him to his secret getaway in the Maldives. Oh, it was fabulous. David is a real playah though. Lucky for me so am I! Suffice it to say, sweeties, you're looking at an Oscar presenter come Sunday night.

                                  All in a day's work.

                                  Now, sweeties. What's all this about a siamese twin character? Where were we conjoined? I'm not doing a scar, just so you know.

                                  Off for a shiatsu.

                                  When blood is the beverage of choice, the sharpest fangs feed first.


                                  • Oh Robby, you homewrecker you!

                                    How did David's husband Keanu take it when he broke the news of the Maldivian tryst?


                                    • I am sorry - but you know those little magnetic lockers that you put inside your lockers at school? Well that is all that is in teh budget for you I'm afraid. Maybe if we hadn't spent so much money on your extensions, we would've had some $$ left for a nice mirror.


                                      • Did I fail to mention that Keanu went with? He didn't care at all. The deal is that he gets all of the tabloid attention AFA the "marriage" to Dave goes. Otherwise, it's a pretty open arrangement.

                                        A funny aside - Keanu and I went diving for black pearls (found one, actually, and my buddy David Yurman, is making me a little bauble out of it - something set in platinum, I think) in the tradition of the native Maldivians ... in the buff!

                                        I had to take a few pain pills - but don't tell my sponsor - and have some healing therapies from a Jainist priest from the sunburn I'm sporting on my freshly buffed backside! Keanu laughed all the way back to the villa!

                                        When blood is the beverage of choice, the sharpest fangs feed first.


                                        • okay you all have been waiting to hear my new name for the roll i was casted in...and it is Christopher but Topher for short
