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!

  • Does anyone find it unusual that on all these threads and SM posts, so many people jump to MB's defense or remain neutral, but so few come to post in support of LK. Does she have any life long friends and supporters who would support her no matter what? It really seems the only people who support her on SM have never actually even met her. That's sad. I don't feel sorry for LK, it is simply sad to me to be the kind of person who has no friendships or others to rely on to have their back in good times and bad. To me that says a lot about a person.

      It says that her friends either dont have time or care for the drama on these boards and social media. I seriously can not believe you would try and assume something about someone based on the fact she has no "friends" jumping online to back her up. You either make way too many assumptions or you have intimate knowledge of her inner friendship circle.

      In a million years I would never get my real life friends to come on here and defend me. It would be pathetic and sad to do that. I would in fact tell my friends the opposite, ignore the trolls.

        That would be you and me. LK is an attention hog and seems to love the spotlight. Narcissist? IDK. I know absolutely nothing of her "inner friendship circle" if she has one. Yes, she has many SM followers but are they really friends? IDK, or care, this was simply an observation.

        Of course, I doubt you or I would be posting on SM about our experience if we were involved in this crime.

          Any attention, even negative.
          Who does this remind us of?
          Not interested in doing the homework, the daily lessons and hard work of developing as a rider/trainer.
          Sounds more familiar, right?
          Makes up achievements that are imagined or only partially done.

          Accuses anyone who achieves success that overshadows their own successes of cheating or having it easier or buying their way up [when they in fact have actually done all of the above plus spit polished teeny tiny pretend triumphs to make them appear to exist or to be larger than they are].
          No, DT is a good guess. SW? Close. But what about NP as well?
          They are like a whole handful of peas in a pod, the lot of them.

            100% agree with this. It is difficult for me to imagine anyone more pathetic than a bunch of trolls so invested in trashing and provoking the victim of a horrific shooting, regardless of how much you disliked her prior activity on SM.

              This thread, and others, would have died out long ago had it not been for LK adding fuel to the pot. We all were becoming weary of your constant posts until she came along and revived it.

              By the way, why are YOU here posting with us trolls?

                Green, you PROMISED to ignore my posts!

                Surely you see the trolls asking her questions, insulting her, and making up unsubstantiated allegations. Then you have the gall to bash her for “stirring the pot?”

                You claim you are “weary of my posts” but then post 4 times demanding that I rehash something from a previous thread, then bash me for providing what you demanded? Of course!

                  Really? I'd say perpetuating a thread you think is trashing and provoking a victim, by trashing and provoking those whose activity on the forum you dislike is right up there.

                  Very meta.

                  Anyone else think "metapathetic" sounds like an emo band name?

                    I wonder if we counted who has posted the very most on this thread, who's 'name' it would be.
                    Be careful in that glass house.

                      • Well, I don't have time to count people's posts, but that would be (mildly) interesting. When do these frequent posters (you know who you are) have time to ride their horses?

                          Maybe for the reason I did, because it is hard to watch a victim of a violent crime being further victimized on social media. It is very clear only negative comments on LK are welcomed here(“why are you posting with “US”)so frankly it is a waste of time to reply. And you know you want LK to post, the constant harassment is mostly for that purpose.

                                LK is an attention seeker and EVERYONE on this thread feeds her need to be in the spotlight. The holier than thou behavior is not becoming.

                                  I’ll take a stab at this. I think she is saying that Idol’s texts PROVES LK’s accusation of premeditation, because the police reports had not yet been made public by the time the texts were sent.

                                  However, the texts were sent AFTER the shooting. This is the digital/info age. I have no doubt that it only took minutes for texts to start circulating, especially amongst people who were close to MK and MH (and others who worked/boarded at the barn).

                                  Appalling and unprofessional to respond to an innocuous COTH blog. Same for the posts on RC’s FB page. I do believe that LK is obsessively searching key words on the internet so that she can catch anything posted about MB

                                        I would replace LK with Jealoushe personally, but sure, we can go with big 4.

                                        Perhaps I have become hardened in this digital age, but I really haven't seen any bashing on this thread as YD wants to claim. At least not toward LK. We HAVE seen bashing by LK herself toward others but, that's fair to her followers I guess. Hypocritical at least.

                                        There is no excuse for LK's behavior in some of these revealing posts and screenshots in my opinion. As others have said, they go straight to character and are indefensible. Again, always the innocent victim who accepts no responsibility for her actions or words. Remember the old phrase, "the devil made me do it"?
