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!

    Aiding and abetting. Didn’t LK say she has audio proof? Or video proof from cameras?

        I am mystified as to who you thought the Jack
        Nicholson character was, since you didn’t specify and now refuse to say. Since you specialize in your QFPing of LK in particular, I assumed you saw yourself as the Demi Moore character. One of the good guys shouting “Gotcha”.




        I think MHM doesn’t feel like getting into an argument with you about it so feel free to ramble solo. I could be wrong of course but your assumptions are something else.

          • IMO, with what facts we know, the only thing MB is a victim of is his poor judgment.

            ETA: again, the ONLY acceptable reason (in my mind) to shoot someone is if your life is in imminent danger.

              What is it with your constant attempts to put words in other people’s mouths by misinterpreting their posts or just plain making stuff up?

                  The laws for Private Party Transfers vary from state-to-state, and also depend on the type of gun (long gun, hand gun, etc). It is totally possible, although not recommended) to buy or sell a gun legally without any paperwork whatsoever. Doing so would make it difficult to trace the gun to its current owner, but not impossible. As long as the gun’s serial number has not been removed or altered, the gun will always be traceable to the original (first) owner and then traced forward to its current owner through transfer/sales records or by an investigation (insurance records, personal interviews of previous owners, FFL shipping records, etc). It’s not 100%, bc some previous owners may be deceased, and some people never insure or ship their guns. Some even repair their own guns.

                  So, yes, there are instances where guns are not traceable to their current owners, but it’s a small percentage if the gun is serialized.

                  Thank you for taking the time to answer—much appreciated!

                      IMO it seems that YD posts merely for sport. The issue does not matter - just the "fight". By her own admission, most of her posts are deliberately condescending and argumentative. The YD account was created in July apparently just to post on George Morris threads and then some Barisone threads.... only in anything deemed contentious.

                      To each their own... *shrug* ... but the need to look for an argument (and yes, take affront) and lecture other posters about their sincerity is.... odd.

                          For those still wondering about my identity, it has been noted that I joined July 3, 2019 shortly after the Gage suicide, and according to Denali have participated in only 4 threads. The two SS ones (RG and GM) plus the two most recent MB/LK ones. Weird.

                            I’m confused. Was the arrow pointing at your profile picture of Bernie? That is not how it appears on my screen. But I am guessing that was the intention?

                                Yes.

                                  On my screen, yes, it points to the double face palm pic.

                                  • So, now we have accusations that MB prefers barely legal girls and pressured a pregnant 19 year old into an abortion. Interesting, but I don't see that it's relevant to this case, unless that was some secret that he was afraid would be exposed. Is that something MH was unaware of?

                                      Ah, ok. I thought maybe I had missed something.

                                      I would say Bernie looks a bit more upset. I’m still trying to see the humor in the throw-the-entire-contents-of-the-pantry-plus-some-invented-stuff-against-the-wall-and-see-what-sticks approach from some posters.

                                      But I sincerely appreciate the concern. Thanks.

                                        Apparently you are. A wild ass guess would be someone from Canada or a country other the USA. Maybe David Marcus or someone like that.

                                        • OK, legitimate confusion and question here.
                                          ​​​​
                                          ​​​​​​Below I've quoted a post from GWE (#1116), the one where they posted their fb screenshot. Two posts after GWE posted that, YD quoted GWE's post (the same one below), except in the post where YD quoted it (#1118), the part of the second sentence where GWE says "and I misremembered a few details" is missing...

                                          Did GWE go back and edit that first post? I thought it shows at the bottom of a post if it was edited after posting. Or did YD take that part out of GWE's quote when they quoted it? Or am I totally confused and reading way too far into it??

                                          GWE's post:

I looked back through the thread and see you two had a spat about her identity. Why are you obsessed with these people and why are you frequently assuming posters are people they are not?
                                          I think I attached a screenshot of YD's post quoting GWE. Really not trying to stir the pot and I almost didn't go through all of this trying to explain, quote, and screenshot, but I am legitimately wondering! May be a simple explanation.
