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 may be better handled privately. While posters are legally responsible for their statements, the moderators may in their discretion remove or edit posts, though are not legally obligated to do so, regardless of content.

Users have the ability to modify or delete their own messages after posting. Moderators generally will not delete posts, threads or accounts unless they have been alerted and have determined that a post, thread or user has violated the Forums' policies. Moderators do not regularly independently monitor the Forums for such violations.

Profanity, outright vulgarity, blatant personal insults or otherwise inappropriate statements will not be tolerated and will be dealt with at the discretion of the moderators.

Users may provide their positive or negative experiences with or opinions of companies, products, individuals, etc.; however, accounts involving allegations of criminal behavior against named individuals or companies MUST be first-hand accounts and may NOT be made anonymously.

If a situation has been reported upon by a reputable news source or addressed by law enforcement or the legal system it is open for discussion, but if an individual wants to make their own claims of criminal behavior against a named party in the course of that discussion, they too must identify themselves by first and last name and the account must be first-person.

Criminal allegations that do not satisfy these requirements, when brought to our attention, may be removed pending satisfaction of these criteria, and we reserve the right to err on the side of caution when making these determinations.

Credible threats of suicide will be reported to the police along with identifying user information at our disposal, in addition to referring the user to suicide helpline resources such as 1-800-SUICIDE or 1-800-273-TALK.

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 guess the "bounty hunter" career didn't pan out...

      No one wants a weapons charge on the East Coast. They take no excuses.

      Remember Plaxico Burress? Bless his heart. He got jail time for accidentally shooting himself in the thigh.

        New Jersey has strict requirements for being a bounty hunter. Nick could NEVER meet them.

              I’m pretty sure what he’s describing is harassment and / or stalking, not “standing up to bullies.” Memo to Nicky, since he’s obviously reading this: don’t do that.

                Nick, I haven't bothered to post on your page. Not worth my time, but if you were somehow able to locate my phone # and attempted to call me to harass me - good luck, because I don't answer unknown numbers. And if said unknown number persists, it gets blocked.

                  I think NP is a compulsive liar and fantasist, but I'd never take time out of my day to contact him IRL, or any of his "clients". If people these days haven't got the nous and wherewithal to google someone before they get into business ("training" or anything else) with a person, then that's on them. Pretty much all of his life and lies for the past 10 or so years is available on the internet to anyone who enters his name, and this is only because he CANNOT stop with his gloating about imaginary successes. If he just stopped the foolishness and went away, no-one would care less about him, he brings all of this attention on himself and then bitches and moans about it. He's a rather slow learner.

                      Scribbler/skydy/Dee-Vee, thanks. No intention of doing anything or encouraging anyone here to start anything, just thinking out loud. Wasn't sure how it all would work with there being a border between them and him and all that. He's not worth the headache, but it's good info to have regardless.

                        If anyone from this board showed up at my house unannounced in order to tell me what a terrible person I am, they would get one, and only one, warning to leave. Then we get to see who is within their rights to brandish a firearm.

                          He actually did post a screen shot of someone from this board who had PM’d one of his supporters to tell them that he “doesn’t know his ass from a hole in the ground.” He took it down very quickly. So while he is clearly delusional about many things, this isn’t one of them.

                          PM-ing a random stranger on the internet like that is beyond creepy and unacceptable. I won’t out the person who did it but they know who they are. It’s also dangerous. We know NP can be violent and aggressive and he has stalked and harassed others from this site before.

                            Before last election he posted a video, read that again...

                            Posted a Video

                            of himself following and harassing two young ladies who were registering voters, or working for a campaign. It was ugly.

                            He also posted about giving a ride home from a dance, to two of his kids friends (one assumes) about how the one child was dressed "like a boy" but was actually a girl. Also ugly.

                            Do i contact people about him? No. But in that last one I seriously considered trying to ID the school and warn them.
                            I give lots of rides to my sons teammates. Talking about them, on the internet like that, is hideous.

                            Again, HE. Posted that video. With apparent pride at being unkind to children he's been entrusted to keep safe. "Disgusting, ignorant white trash" are things that come to mind. And yes that's mean. I don't give a flip about being mean to this guy. He's a grown adult who bullies people, including children, and then whines about being bullied. Snowflake.

                                  I have often found that people who claim they are bullied on the internet etc, usually are bullies themselves. NP just backs up that assumption of mine.

                                    He attempted to PM me, I asked on his page if his clients or horses he's trained to FEI were so secret they couldn't be shared publicly... he PM'd again saying he's waiting for me in PMs. I advised I was logging in to work so would be a while before I could respond, so he deleted the posts, and apparently blocked me.

                                    Comment


                                      I commented on his hate on post about CDJ to the effect of “she rides with a more forward arm because her upper arms are quite short and she works within the physics of her conformation”. That got a bunch of comments that alluded to that you need to ride with your arms in your crotch apparently.
                                      One poster was particularly vehement I was incorrect about my comment so I sent her the message “you realize Nick doesn’t know his ass from a hole in the ground right?”

                                      So personally don't give one rats ass about what this fool thinks of me or that he tried to post a message I sent to one of this brain dead supporters. Thick skin.

                                        You might want to block him too, just for safety's sake.

                                          A few of those posters have been FB accounts that NP has occasionally created to praise himself. The giveaways are simply a profile pic and a banner pic - he has done this a few times. There was a "Laura Harrison" I think whose page featured a Google maps street view of a Dutch dressage farm... and a stock photo of a QH for a profile pic. The imaginary posters are always agreeing with NP about how horrible the Chronicle is and what a fabulous trainer he is... using all his phrasing, favorite terms, spelling mistakes etc. The imaginary supporters/posters will also tend to bring up NP's favorite topics for "clarification" - like his 75% score on his free style etc.

                                          Blatantly obvious... and IMO, very sad.

                                          ETA:


                                          Laura Harrison I discovered you thanks to the chronicle. I admire your training and enjoy your videos. It’s an amazing accomplishment to train an Appy to Grand Prix and so many others to upper levels. You have a gift and natural feel.
                                          I dug up this FB post by "Laura Harrison" that was quoted in a previous thread just to use as an example... and to my surprise the link to "her" FB page is still active - only at that link "Laura" has morphed into "Anna"... who posts on NP's dressage page... ??!! Coincidence???!!

                                          That is beyond sad...

                                          Enough.
