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!

        While there may not be any formal repercussions for using multiple accounts and basically creating multiple aliases, it certainly does damage any credibility Palm Beach had. I have generally found them to be of sound advice-giving, it was just the delivery that was a major turnoff.

        What I find worth a chuckle about all of this is that one of Palm Beach's favorite arguing points was centered around anytime someone stated they didn't find vets to be the most knowledgeable about nutritional issues. Now we find that (apparently) PB's husband is a vet and in the same post that they've just been looking up nutritional information on the web?
        Sorry, I 100% agreed with whomever Palm Beach actually is in that thread. Palm Beach had a good question, why does someone think that they are more qualified than a vet about nutritional issues? If we are asked to believe that a vet's education leaves them as inadequate to answer our feed questions, why should we believe that someone else is? It goes to taking advice from internet strangers that are just made up alters living in glass houses. I don't agree with Palm Beach having alters, but You can't attack a poster with a history they made up to sound important without coming clean about why you think you're qualified to make everyone listen to you!

Although the thread had calmed down when I logged in I saw that I had a bunch of notifications, when I clicked on them they were gone/didn't exist.

          Some or all of the people that were pissed off at me and had gotten rude and snarky decided to "like" some of my posts many times and then took the likes away by "unliking" them. What their purposes were by doing this I have no idea but it certainly proves that they are indeed "Mean Girls" and always have been. At least one of them is posting on this thread quite a bit. Funny how some pick and point out other people's behaviour when their's is just as bad if not worse.

            This BB isn't even a shadow of what it once was 10 years ago. The type of behavior you describe is tolerated now aways because it's sensationalist and draws more views. Better to get negative attention than no attention, yes?

            Folks who post hundred, even thousands of replies are suspect for multiple SNs on any forum. I've been stalked by trolls that then cross over to real life. It ain't fun, but it sure is revealing. If you encounter one, you can spot that type of behavior from a mile away.

            There's more than one on this board with multiple screen names. They reply to themselves under different personas. Why is it tolerated? Because bulletin board traffic is the way you sell ad space.

            And traffic for the sake of traffic alone drives off valid participants.

            And therein starts the decline of once-great-forums. Because "Hey, it's free. If you don't like it, you can leave".
            So folks do.

              Thats quite disturbing!


              I figured that there are quite a few that are multiples. I see many that only pop up once in awhile and when they do it's usually to cause a problem or a train wreck, obviously some of them do it because they get their kicks out of it.

                              Okay so since it's been handled. Can I ask about Smokey cream dun roan horses? I forget where I saw someone post about one, but it looked an awful lot like a perlino to me and when I tried to google I was just getting information about the creme gene, not the specific coat. Is Smokey cream dun roan a legit coat? If so, what kind of breeding goes into it? Or is it just another name for a smokey cream?

                                Well, each of those can exist on their own - so yes - with dun and roan being involved and then add a double dilute to get smoky cream, it is possible.

                                Or someone is just confused and hoping their horse is as exotic as possible.

                                I am confused - by all the alters nonsense. How can people keep track of all this? You would have to have multiple windows open, one for each alter - and make sure you did not reply as yourself when an alter was posting in that particular thread. And when you screwed up...

                                I had another screen name here - and then there was some kind of a board move/adjustment many years ago. I could no longer seem to log in under that name so started this one. I have enough trouble posting as me (the mighty smoofox) - never mind an extra 2 or 3 alters.

                                  I had similar happen to me.
                                  Long ago I signed up to ask about a saddle for sale.
                                  I never did ask, found one somewhere else.
                                  Never did post and some years passed.
                                  Then I tried to log in to post, there had been some changes and someone else had my previous name?
                                  I think because I had never used it, maybe it was considered invalid and let someone else have it?
                                  At that time is when I started with my current name, years ago.

                                  As for colors, best I know, there are some basic colors, sorrel being a basic recessive gene.
                                  Then there are dilutes of basic colors, double dilutes and color modifiers.
                                  Dunalinos are one such double dilute.

                                  I am not sure we are quite clear yet how all those options function, but learning more every day.

                                  May ought to ask those color questions in the breeder's forum.
                                  They are more up to date on horse colors.

                                        Now I understand why all of PB's racehorses are winners and her "racing stable" makes money every year.
                                        The winners are PB’s, If they don’t win they belong to one of her alters! Instant 100% win percentage. Same with the horses who don’t stand perfectly 100% of the time etc
