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!

          • I won't eat meatloaf cuz I don't like the name, it just sounds gross to me for some reason.

            When I was little I ate butter straight out of the tub.

            I have an irregular heart beat. If I've been sitting a long time and I stand up, I get very lightheaded. I can't get out of the car w/out hanging onto the side. If I get a large adrenaline rush, usually in contact with my hand (a good example would be turning out a horse and he RIPPED the lead thru my hand giving me rope burn, or slamming my hand in a door) my heart skips 3-4 beats, I get no oxygen to my brain, and I pass out. I have had tests done, it's some freaky stuff.

            I have never been stung by a bee. As a result, I am terrified of them.

            My ex-bf puked on me at a New Year's Eve party.

            I have to look at the stairs when I go down them. If I don't watch the stairs I feel like I'm going to miss the last step.

            I refuse to eat yogurt.

            I always have to know the time.

            Wow...long list. Other than that I'm perfectly normal!

              OMG me too! I just *know* that my first sting is going to be when I am all alone, 189759283 miles from civilization. And I'm going to be horribly allergic, swell up, and die.

                So what do you think of the singer?

                Comment


                • I thought of more!

                  I didn't drink alcohol until I was 19 (legal age up here). Now I only drink every 3-4 months. I don't see the point most of the time.

                  Have never smoked or done drugs. I am one of a dying breed (thankfully my boyfriend is the same). Being around high people freaks me out.

                  I count everything...tiles, cracks, corners (like on my computer screen...corners of the inside and outside of the screen, etc). I constantly trace shapes with my eyes.

                  I have an obsession with even numbers, and doing things the same number of times. So if I open my left eye and close it, I have to open my left eye or I feel weird.

                  I always think i'll sleep through my alarm, so I set 2. Or 3.

                  And I'm an insomniac. I've gone weeks with only getting 3-4 hours of sleep, then sleeping normally.

                    • aliali...when I was younger I loved one of his songs! can't remember which one, but I sang it alllll the time! go figure. Oh, I thought of more stuff hehe...

                      When I was 8 and my brother was 13, we made music videos. I did Paula Abdul "Promise of a New Day" and Brent did MC Hammer "Can't Touch This".

                      LittleBay - I have never smoked anything either.

                      I've seen every episode of Saved by the Bell, Full House, and Boy Meets World ever created at some point in my life.

                      I've also seen every episode of That 70's Show and Friends.

                      I also answered almost every question in that big Friends trivia game right. And there's a lotta questions.

                      I've seen the movie Grease about 8,000 times.

                      When I was younger I couldn't say Hong Kong. I always said Kong Hong.

                      I've never gotten a speeding ticket. (Knock on wood.) And I drive at least 10 over at all times. Even past cops.

                      I dip Wendy's fries in Frosties.

                      Until I was 13 I was convinced that if you touched your eye, you'd go blind. (Aren't big brothers nice??) When I was 13 I got contacts and realized I was an idiot.

                      Just outta curiosity, how do you edit a post? Also, how do you do the quote thing? And what the hell does LOFF mean? I'm an internet retard.

                      • ooooh.

                        I have to buy things in pairs.

                        2 cans of spaghettios
                        2 boxes of triscuits
                        2 cans of easy cheese.
                        I like things that come in even numbers of ounces better than odds, and I like drinks that come with even numbers of drinks rather than odds.

                              • I'm scared beyond belief of statues, I can't go anywhere near them without a total panic attack. I am the same way about crickets and grass hoppers, I freak out if I see them.

                                Noodle - I've seen Grease tons of times too; I actually went to a movie theater to see it 42 times, when it came out on movie channels I lost count! I've also seen the play.

                                The back of my ears are notched, there are the same number of notches on each ear...

                                I slammed my finger nail in a car door in 1984 and it NEVER grew back!

                                Every time I say goodbye to someone, I am convinced they will die before I see them again. This includes my room mate popping down to the store for milk. I have a sudden little clutch of fear.. this is the last time I'll ever see her!!! right as they walk out the door. I can deal with it now only because it has always been there and I'm used to it.

                                I have to walk w.a.y. around a parked car because my mother always told me there were people under the car waiting to grab your ankles.

                                It is 11:40 now; 20 minutes til my birthday (!)
