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!

      My point is that if MB and MH are overall the ones in charge on that property in general, and their standards for cleanliness and care are that low, they may not give a damn if care is lacking in other areas as well. I've had trainers that insisted on a high level of cleanliness and care, and I've had trainers that could care less as long as you're paying them. You could see how their own attitudes carried over to staff and effected almost everyone in the barn.
      Oh, oops! Thanks for clearing up the condo thing.

      And, yes, you’re absolutely right about the cleanliness issue carrying over to other places. We were good friends with the man who cleaned the stalls. Nicest guy ever. He’d help me with my Spanish & was just the sweetest guy you could hope to meet. He was being paid so minimally & left at 3 pm after picking each stall & filling water buckets. He’d have jumped at the opportunity to stay longer and do the stalls again but - like every other employee at the barn & elsewhere (aka construction, vets, utility services etc) I’m sure he very much disliked having to “chase,” his earned pay. It’s degrading. But that’s MB rolled. Expecting the most work & refusing to pay for the service either at all- or on time at all. Everyone there complained about this.
      MH (at least as far we had been concerned) never was part of any business dealings we had. (Except for one time despite not being welcome.) She didn’t like having to do work & the only time we ever saw her preparing to clean something- was when a certain clinician came bc, he stayed in their apartment when he came in. Even then, she asked me what the job of 409 was!!! I was like, “it’s for cleaning,” then laughed a little, hoping she was joking. She wasn’t.

        Maybe you’ll run into the cat on Florida. I think that’s where people decided it went.

        I use 409 for everything that requires cleaning 😂

My psychological well being (and sleep pattern) is pretty much toast at this point. Severe emotional & physical distress tends to screw with one’s usual routine, sadly. And, bc of the fact - if we were killed, it would pretty much guarantee a dismissal. At least in Michaels mind. Afterwards, even if conviction happens- we will still be looking over our shoulders bc..... we know there’s a high chance he’d want to finish the job he started- except with new & extra motive of revenge for being held accountable for his Inexcusable actions on aug 7th.

Something tells me she deserved to win rather than simply given the win because she was thin and beautiful as LK eluded.

                          Ummm.... and I’m the one obsessed? (Belly laugh) Shes 35 or something now. When I was the equivalent of a YR - I was landing double axles. Now, if could land a single toe loop or not travel during a sit spin.... I’d be delighted. Who gives a rats tail what anyone did 2 decades ago. Besides, (as per usual) you missed my point entirely. And again, separately, only MH would feel the need to point out a “great score,” she got once & add to it, “it wasn’t bc she was thin & beautiful.” I never EVER used the word “beautiful,” or “thin,” in regards to her. I used those words to describe the young, thin, beautiful & TALENTED staff girls she constantly berated. I DID say that Michael told us as nauseam that he saw her at that YR competition & thought she was the most beautiful girl in the world & would’ve scored her 100%. He’s 20 years her senior. Checking out the very young riders as an old guy does set a precedent for future behavior. Then again, so does impregnating a 19 yr old while married. Any advice for that, Green? If so, you should probably give it to Michael.

                          edit- I checked & did use the word “thin.” Not “beautiful, though. How TH would I know? I was just quoting what OTHERS said - or didn’t say. To repeat, I dont give a hoot what some woman was doing 20 years ago. Nor do I care what she’s doing now - or at anytime in between. Except for that one thing.........

                              Or....... maybe she thought she was smart enough to make it seem that way. Unluckily for her- she overestimated her own intelligence. Her truth will come to light. No matter what.

                                  Impregnating a 19 year old? When did he do that? Is that true? That could be quite slanderous for you to say I would think.

                                  Talk about obsessive, why would you care how much older MB is than MH? You continue to make comments about their relationship. I'm certainly not the obsessive one. All I did was pull up an old article about her NAYRC achievements after you stated her parents bought her a grand black horse and did everything for her and that's why she won. You seem a bit envious of her achievements. If I recall correctly, she married shortly after that, finished college, had two children and basically was out of riding until the children were older and she started back up again.

                                  As far as me being MH, I really do suspect she has much more on her plate than playing around on SM or concerning herself with what you are doing. That information is based on word from a friend who saw her in FL recently and said she's doing quite well under the circumstances juggling her children, teaching, training and living life.

                                          ETA: thanks for the backhanded apology.
                                          You know, you & GWE are just argumentative, rude people. YD is way kinder than I. Each time she has apologized for things which, IMO - she did NOT have to or need to- it’s a lose-lose. IDC who is an alter or not- but you &Green DO sound a lot alike & sure do come to “each other’s,” “rescue,” when presented with a line of logic you refuse to or simply cannot follow.
                                          You both change the subject immediately, the minute you’re asked questions regarding accusations you can’t back up. I would bet $$$$ if you’re not the same person- you’re having very interesting coaching convos via pm. AnotherRound is probably included!
                                          Back to the point. YD apologizes & it is “backhanded?” She corrects herself if something is misread or misinterpreted (something I’ve seen none of you do, aside from perhaps, CanteringCarrot, Ladyj, BigMama & a very select few others) then gets pummeled for admitting she *may* have done this. Meanwhile, back at the ranch, Angela Freda literally May as welll be speaking in a different language, based on the amount of times she’s changed the subject when cornered- MHM is victim blaming at its worst by thinking she’s ... idk.... building a personal case file - hoping to what, (?) prove Michaels “innocence,” by quoting my every post - but not other person’s? Morgan Sercu can’t get enough of this tragedy - so she continuously begins new threads even though the others have rightfully been closed....... WildLittleWren is stalking my “friends only,” fb posts which seemed to very much bother (whoever it was) that strongly voted “Nooooooo,” in regards to my arrival in Lox.

                                          Its just odd to me. There are so many other totally out of order posts which allege the ridiculous - assert the rude- proclaim the insane & what you choose to harp on is a “backhanded apology,” which wasn’t backhanded at all & IMHO- was undeserved. Like I said, YD is a much, much better person to a bunch of nameless strangers than either I, or anyone else might be. Get an Effin GRIP!
