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 are likely better handled privately. While posters are legally responsible for their statements, the moderators may in their discretion remove or edit posts that violate these rules. Users have the ability to modify or delete their own messages after posting, but administrators generally will not delete posts, threads or accounts upon request.

Outright inflammatory, vulgar, harassing, malicious or otherwise inappropriate statements and criminal charges unsubstantiated by a reputable news source or legal documentation will not be tolerated and will be dealt with at the discretion of the moderators.

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!

    Failure to Dom

    Here we go again. I'm "chasing down" my PhD currently and I find it surprising that:
    1. You don't know how to "spell" PhD,
    2. You're completely unconcerned with the scientific method, and
    3. You begin an inflammatory thread complete with block caps and multiple exclamation points in the title.

    It's also interesting that your first post and your diction are a little familiar. I'm having a very difficult time believing that an epidemiological expert would have this "science be damned" attitude, not to mention the naive tone of your posts doesn't jive with who you claim to be.

      I feel so sorry for anyone who has posted after the OP. She does not have a PhD. She has been pushed away from the area we live because she has lied, stolen and cheated for things!! Steer clear of her and her farm! I'm very pleased that people were able to see through her!

        A rescue I donate to had a mare with EPM and was approached to be in this trial. It was expensive and didn't work and the mare was ultimately euthed. I have no opinion about the OP.

          Don't know about the op but i know 3 horses, 2 of my own that went through this trial. Not expensive compared to the 3 months of Marquis I used on the one and 6 months of sulfa cocktail. 150 is not a lot IMO when Marquis I paid 800 a month for. Marque did not work but this drug helped all 3 of these horses. The one that I did Marquis on had to be retired because of epm and now can be ridden again and the other 2 ate in work and doing good. No idea who op is just wanted to say that it helped the 3 I know that used it.

            Who, me?? Nuts, I may be, but my EPM horse responded beautifully to Marquis + DMSO + boatloads of nursing, supportive care.

              Well, since we're back on this topic, I've asked and asked and no one will answer, so here goes again. Rabicon, you say you have a horse you retired due to EPM. I'm guessing that means the horse was not neurologically "competent" for riding.
              1. How did you know the horse still had an active EPM infection and wasn't simply dealing with residual damage to neural tissues? And,
              2. Lingering, but active, infection left untreated during the horse's retirement would certainly result in damage to tissues, which leads me to the question no one has been able to answer: How does Oroquin-10 (or Orogin) reverse nerve/brain damage? THIS is something we all need to know. You had a neurologic horse, that had been so long enough to be beyond healing, revert to normal and rideable after using Oroquin-10? I have significant nerve damage myself in one leg. Will it help me?

              Is it more likely that maybe the stimulant effects of levamisole make some horses just FEEL better and cope better with whatever it is that makes them NQR? I don't know. But I think any number of things are more likely than an antibiotic/immune stimulant combination drug reversing nerve and brain damage that would otherwise prove permanent.

              A sound horse with normal neurological exam are not the expected result of successful EPM treatment. It's sad, but oftentimes in the brain and nerves, damage done is damage done. MANY horses have "recovered" from EPM, but will live with neurological deficits to one degree or another depending on many variables. Failure of a horse's neurological systems to regenerate is not tied to drug failure, but to stark reality.
