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'm not sure why anyone would quote someone, edit that to make it sound like they said something they didn't, and then go on about it. Unless they were crazy.

        Only the moderators are allowed to make the rules, not posters with agendas.
        Yes, but in this instance I quoted the original quote, with no editing, and the original post was NOT there, because the OP had gone in and changed it.

        While in this case Green admitted she edited the post, not me, how does the technology allow a third party to know for sure whether the editing was done in the original post vs the quote?

          Please take these questions to the Off Course forum or ask the moderators. Enough already. We aren't the programmers or system administrators here.

            On this point, we can definitely agree, though i suspect not really.

            The issue was whether you need to have achieved certain scores at a national show at PSG prior to entering a US CDI at PSG. Someone said you did; others say they are not aware of the rule.
            FEI requires a separate membership from the USEF/USDF for both the horse and rider, though there are some exceptions for horses at the lower tiers of CDIs.

            I don't know you you are IRL, YD, but unless you've entered and/or managed a CDI, I was actually hoping for feedback from people who've actually gone through the process of entering CDIs.

              If “member of FEI” = registered with FEI, along with FEI passport for the horse, that’s easy to verify on the USEF website, no personal experience necessary.

              Perhaps the person who asserted that one needs to qualify with certain scores at a national show at PSG prior to entering a US CDI at PSG could provide a link to the relevant document.

              To me, seeing the document with the rule is more definitive than the “personal experience” of an anonymous BB poster.

                Highly unlikely. I think the only thing to do is not entertain the desire to make this thread about how dare people disagree with LK and all things YD wants to know about showing, quoting and BB etiquette.

                  If you can show that the purportedly libelous statement was true, that’s a defense. Are you saying (hoping) that if you make an untrue libelous statement that saying “well, I THOUGHT is was true because it’s something I read on the internet” is also a defense?

                  In Elon Musk’s $190 million libel case over his referring to a British cave diver as “pedoguy” in a Tweet, his defense was not “well, I genuinely and in good faith (?!) THOUGHT he was a pedophile”. The defense was that a reasonable person (not Musk, not the diver) would have understood that remark as not being intended to be interpreted literally.

                  Accusations of bullying are handled through USEF, not SS, I believe. So if LK has made a complaint of bullying and harassment through USEF, they would be interested in libelous and harassing statements, as well.






                  What do you mean by “hoping”? I haven’t written any false statements on here. Most of us that are posting are questioning and speculating, and referring to previously-posted information, including screenshots of posts made by LK herself.

                  You know the law that well? Hmmmmm.... was your mother from Texas, per chance?
                  Banter whenever you want to banter....canter whenever you want to canter.

                    No, my mother was born in Philadelphia and raised in New Jersey. Not that it’s any of your business.

                        • I have no idea what the requirements to compete at a CDI in the US are, but I’m guessing they may be similar to the Canadian requirements, which are listed here : https://www.equestrian.ca/cdn/storag...orjkrBJRHS.pdf

                          Perhaps someone familiar with USEF / FEI rules can share the American equivalent.

                                In this thread we all need “it’s not okay to shoot someone” in the signature line because if you don’t explicitly state it every post, certain people swear you’re victim blaming.

                                • CDI's governed by FEI, so they should be the same. It appears that scores of some level are only needed to compete out of your home country. To compete "at home" it appears to be mostly a paperwork requirement and additional processes - ie the jog, and other FEI requirements. THis link is older and not rules, but an article.

                                  • I just looked at the HITS on the Hudson - August 2019 show info on Horseshowoffice.com, and LK was entered in the FEI PSG, class 151, NOT the CDI PSG, class S1 or A1 which was the AA CDI PSG class. I'm not sure what the error was or why the interest, but here's what she was entered in:

                                    http://results.horseshowoffice.com/R...id=6893&oid=24

                                    Notice Jay-T is still listed as owned by MB. I thought LK bought him. Maybe that was part of the dispute.

                                          Is that the best question? It specifically asks "Do you ever just shut up?" yet that is already a false premise. She cannot shut up because she is not speaking. She is typing. Further, my use of "false premise" is semantically flawed in this example.

                                          HTH.
