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.

  • Jair, VT... I would appreciate it if you two would be a little more appreciative of the talents provided by DMK, and more sensitive to the special needs of such a sought after diva as herself.

    DMK and I shall be dining tonight - perhaps I can work you two into my schedule sometime tomorrow.

You rule the streets from Lexington Market to Charles Village in a full length white mink with platform cowboy boots and 12 pounds of gold chains!!!! <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

      Muff Daddy (Daddy?? hmm ) How did you KNOW of my fetish for pounds of gold, and platforms?! You are a god!! And mink- what do I love more than mink?

      jair, VT- we can work with this. I am obviously born to this role. We're going to have to meet to discuss this. And VT- I daresay Duffy needs her Chardonay as well as her Evian...(Chocolate is all good, but come on now! We can expects a dry diva).

      DMK- I'm here for you, daahling.. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif[/img]


      • Oh, thank God... Becca... John... I KNEW I could count on you in this time of diffculty... Get me a vodka spritzer, will you dahling?
        Your crazy is showing. You might want to tuck that back in.


        • You sir, are a filthy imposter!

          How dare you try to steal my glorious identity when you can't even spell the surname - one dating back thousands of years to Polish/Albanian royalty! I have my lawyers drafting a cease and desist order as I type! Why, I would bet you're not even follicly challenged and cross-eyed!


          • Not only am I playing the exotic character, but someone is playing "Correen," one of the feuding cousins!

            This means I get to be in it and I get to be in it, ha ha ha, damn me if I wouldn't like to ride in the A/O Youngers again!!! That would mean I was younger AND skinny!!!


            • (On the phone to the National Enqirer) "You'll never BELIEVE the goings on behind the scenes of this shoot! Its musical trailors around here, with all sorts of the casting couch scenarios! You'd think the soap operas on screen where just the warm-up ... how much will you give me for the whole scoop? That much? Ooo weee - let me start with a little tid-bit about the hairy director who claims I was chased and bitten by bears...that's what we call him behind his back you know, Jair-BEAR"


              • Come to Saratoga with me for the mood. Jair has promised me three cases of champagne as long as I don't need the limo while the Culpeper scene is being filmed!

                Drat that Cartier rep. How am I supposed to be selecting the right accessories when TeriK is hogging the sample cases?

                VTrider!!!! No more treat packages for you, little missy! I am, by nature, the easiest of talents to nurture. A little ATTENTION Here! How am I to act the part of a horse breeder w/expensive tastes if I can't go to the Spa to perfect my character?

                  • OMG! Saratoga too?????


                    • Coreene exits her trailer to go smarm around the set for a bit, looking for her next victim. As she is wont to do, she is talking to herself a bit, wondering if the hunky men working in the production office heard of her QVC mishaps and how she got off with two waiters at the wake...


                      • Moe, dear... for you, I could try and work with that VT person, but really dahlink... you do understand how trying it is, right?

                        BECCA!!!! WHERE IS THAT VODKA SPRITZER?!?!?!??!?!? AND SKIP THE SPRITZER PART!!!!
                        Your crazy is showing. You might want to tuck that back in.


                        • Sorry AOJumper, it is obvious that I MUST ride Alice if I am to win the jumpoff!! I'm sure Jair would have it no other way!


                          • I've just come in from meeting with my architect all morning. Who is so fired by the way. He couldn't come up with a plan on how to fit in the barn, rings, and paddocks on my 2 acre lot in the middle of Manhattan?


                            • Sorry for meaning so harsh the last few hours.

                              It is not fun driving back and forth on 64 in my '34 Quantum that was Sea Urchin's first car that is a 3 speed - trying to drive and squish grapes with my left fist while I drive with my knees just so Snowbird can have her $15K wine!!!!!!

                              Snowy - I hope you appreciate this!


                              • Every one knows that is the place to be to soak up character for the breeding/sales sub-plot. Getting just the right people to purchase imported Warmbloods for their kiddies to show is a dicey proposition. The proper attitude is so difficult to perfect. Yes, a week at Saratoga would do nicely. VTrider, it would be practical for several of we who are to be involved to go together and reduce the cost of sending us individually. (Aren't I so easy to work with?) Kissy kissy.

                                The story boards aren't in real time order, dear AOJumper, it wouldn't actually coincide with the "Culpeper" scenes (which will be shot in Southern California on a sound stage [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img] Old footage of Sea Urchin from the Culpeper lending library is being leased by VTrider for the background shots. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

                                SU, space can be arranged for you to accompany us to the spa (as long as your heart wasn't set on the limo, I had to strike that from my list of "must have's") Jair is being such an understanding and inspired artistic director about my little trip.

                                • DMK- Dahhling, you just pick up that little silver bell and ring. My entourage of gold-ladden servants will wait on you..its quite simple, really (And you are a DIVA?? one might begin to wonder). And don't worry- just say straight up..they are quite used to it.

                                    VtRider, where is Xani?

                                    SHE IS RUNNING DOWN MASS AVE. IN A BIKINI !!!

                                    why oh why did you let her out of the basement, I told you she would try all sorts of tricks to get out before the filming! Now what are we to do, I am alone with not even a single assistant here in my Penn ave. office, surely you do not expect me to run out in this weather in my new Kenneth Coles and try to stop her?

                                    Oh please VT see what you can do! Remember last time she got out!!! The Enquirer made their years quota in a few weeks!!!!!!

                                    And what pray tell happened to your new BMW???

                                    • Why Moesha darling - this film is perfectly cast! But whom, dear Moesha, are you going to get to run the Craft Service truck??? You know it's against the Actors Union to make them toil without food - And heaven forbid a PA or bestboy should go without breakfast!! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif[/img]


                                      • oops... tee heee...

                                        As John-John's new assistant I feel I have to apologize for mispelling his name. Spelling has just never been a big thing with me, and nobody seemed to care when I mispelled his name during the interview, they just had me try on the bikini.

                                        Anyway... tee heee... I went to change it and that nasty old imposter has stolen John-John's correct name!!!

                                        He's going to be SO mad at me when he finds out I couldn't fix it, but anyway, he wanted me to say that he hopes VT is over her snit, and he understands how driving Sea Urchin's car could drive the common sense out of a person.

                                        • It would seem you forgot about the third party who was present in the villa. He dropped his card, complete with email address, in my Vuitton carry-on before he left, sweetie, and we've been in touch ever since. I'm sure he'd love to corroborate the story anyway, considering it's true and all. And then there are, of course, the photos and video we snapped of you in your drunken stupor. (You didn't really think I got where I am today by being nice, did you? Remember, darling, behind every Marilyn Monroe there is a Norma Jean!) [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

                                          No worries, though. It's all he-said/she-said at this point anyway, and we'd hate to have bad press before the film even goes into the shooting phase, wouldn't we?

                                          I just got my second draft of the rewrites and I'm thrilled with the direction in which my character is going. My therapist came on-site today and is convinced that this is just what I need to affirm and confirm my newly-found spirituality and sobriety.

                                          And thank you, so much, Mo-eesh, for getting things taken care of. You really know how to treat a guy!
