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!

    Dont they put dead babies in the vats in the Guiness plants to help the fermenting process?

    Actually I think its beef. Next time you see a veggie (Chipmunk as my co-worker likes to call them) drinking a Guiness, you might want to let them know that. (this is all from one of my co-workers, so I cant exactly back that up...

    Though what doesnt taste better with a little baby? honestly.

    • Well, it was two pints before 10:30am near the summer solstice, and I'm a usually non-drinking paleface to begin with. I'm afraid I can't fairly call my time of unconsciousness on the lawn of a park a nap...

      Paris. I wanted to take the Chunnel there, but the whole language barrier thing scared me off. I'll wait until I can borrow Hans' cousin Pierre to take me there.

      • katoth - i think what you don't understand here, is that in general (there are a few exceptions, well maybe quite a few, we call them hunter princesses [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] ) girls involved in horses mature faster than regular high school girls. therefore, we do not get as much involved (again, there will be exceptions) in the general ridiculousness of high school. most of us have no time for all that silly drama involving people, because we all know they are SO much less important than horses. our drama brain cells are in full use at the barn, where they are constantly occupied with such dilemmas as "the black saddle pad requires less washing, and Fuzzy Little Dressage Pony looks so adorable in it, but what if it makes him sweat more when i ride him in the sun?" and "I'm really concerned that Fuzzy Little Dressage Pony can't hold his own against Big Mean Mare in the pasture, i mean, she's like such a bully! I see her, and like, all i can think is, can we get some Regumate here people?!"

        [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] that was a fun post to write. (and yes, i do find myself so entertaining at times...)

                  • I think EquiMom may be inquiring about your father, katoth. You see, we're a group who is forever appreciating our fellow posters, especially those who are charming and can fool certain DQs, *and* who think we're funny and entertaining. So, we naturally inquire about sons, brothers, fathers, uncles, what have you.

                      I haven't ridden them on I-90 but they have been over the 520. (No , not the floating bridge part. There is a horse bridge overpass in Redmond.)

                            Tougher cuts = slow, moist cooking. Think soups, stews, cassoulet, hearty peasant fare.

                                  Once the baby reach's a certain age it becomes more useful as slave labor. Though you have to make sure to pick the right one. You want one that has a little meat on it, but not too much.

                                  Then when the slaves get to be about 8-10 you use the meat to make jerky. At that age their muscles are nice and stringy, you just soak it for a couple days in some marinade, and then smoke it in a earth oven.

                                  That usually gets you the most for your money, and minimizes the risk of an uprising.

                                      Anyway, I've read the ENTIRE (rather hilarious) thread and all I have to say is...

                                      LITTLE WITCH!!!! Don't leave him hanging!!

                                      BTW, I'm thinking of opening a drive through and calling it "Not Without My Baby", what do you think?

                                        I was thinking a restaurant where you bring the baby, and we cook it while you wait could have some merit. Lowers overhead tremendously.

                                        Though I have made the mistake of thinking people didnt want their kids when they really did. Of course then I just ended up with some baby, and a lot of jerky to sell. A lot of jerky...
