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!

    I have no problem with opinions. Opinions are great. I do get tired of people who repeatedly post their opinions like they are fact. And post them with all the decorum and professionalism of a six year old.

      Some day they will have miniature blue tooth cameras connected to the end of the tools so the tool interface with the tooth can be viewed in real time on your Droid. Until then we're stuck with whatever feedback the tool provides to the hand holding it and whatever dexterity the hand operating the tool has developed.

        • Nope, no troll here! . Although, in the infamous "clover" thread, it seems like you were the one being accused of being a troll! http://www.chronofhorse.com/forum/sh...light=slobbers

          What's the big secret? Does the CIA have a super secret vet division that no one is allowed to know about?

          Comment


          • I was a vet tech for years and have worked for equine dentists too. That's why I have seen so many colics from sedation. You do enough and you will see what seems to be a lot of everything!
            Davistina's own version of her credentials.

            And she'll tell DVMs, Cardiologists, DVM/Professors, CJF Farriers and Equine Dentists they're all wrong, stupid, ignorant, backyardish, dumb and dangerous any time any of them point out her lack of knowledge. Or her misinterpretation of what she heard the vet tell a client at some point.
            Because her "decades of experience" being a tech trumps everyone and everything else.

            She's also well known to get extremely nasty if you disagree with her. She may win Coth's "Most Posts Edited By The Mod" award for bad behavior.

              Hey, I thought I was on your ignore list! I can't help it that I do have a lot of experience. I have seen a lot of stupid things. You showing back up is getting on that list!

                What is it to you? Are you that ignorant about teeth that you need to quiz everyone? Educate yourself and stop your silly trolling!

                  • Mistyblue..... Says....

                    My goodness Dizzy, are you still around? Do you even have a life?

                    Is everyone who hasn't been banned and still on here lifeless?
                    Or is it less of a life to keep coming back from the banned to nitpick at people? End


                    So I see you have been being a cyber bully to others to. Did you run another person off and now you are coming back to me? GREAT!

                              Have you figured out with this thread is about yet? You seemed lost with the term "blind" floating. Figure it out yet? You seem to have an opinion but you don't know about what yet.

                              Comment


                              • I didn't even know that horses have teeth!! What?! You'll have to excuse me as I am constantly worrying about my horses keeling over from eating round bales or from clover poisoning. I did stay at a Holiday Inn one time though.

                                Comment


                                • I would believe that based on your posts. You come on here, looking to stir things up and you don't even know what you are stirring up! In case you need help and have yet to figure it out, blind floating is the floating of teeth like Tom has in his pics and another "floater" on here promotes. Don't look in the mouth at all. Glad to hear that you are on the side of visual floating even though you didn't know it!

                                  You have to admit it is a bit funny since you opened your mouth and inserted foot!

                                    • I don't have anyone on ignore.
                                      I haven't ever been edited by the Mods for bad language, bullying or bad behavior. You have many times.
                                      Anyone and everyone is able to do a search on either of our past posts and come to their own conclusion of who is a bully. Or nasty.
                                      I will be the first to admit that I do will happily point out a person's lies online when they make so many they become known for them. If you call that bullying, so be it.

                                      After giving sedation advice, incorrect as usual and being politely corrected by an actual DAVCA:
                                      Are you retracting your statement in an earlier post that Dorm would be better than Rompun? I have seen well over 10,000 horses sedated in my career. Guessing you don't trump that, but maybe you do!
                                      I did not know meghan was board certified? In what?
                                      No, I understand. I figure if people want details they can look it up. Meghans post is very good. Of course some still use Rompun but it isn't the drug of choice for most vets. I see mostly older vets using Rompun and one's that don't do a lot of dentals. I know of vets who won't even carry Rompun on the truck any more.
                                      She's so experienced with her many decades that she can give sedation advice online, yet had no idea that the DAVCA in MeghanDAVCA's user name meant vet anesthesiologist.

                                      BTW, she had a bunch of posts edited in that thread too. And some completely removed. For....erm...bullying everyone.
                                      You jump in the saddle,
                                      Hold onto the bridle!
                                      Jump in the line!

                                      • Haha. I still stand by my statement. Trust me, I am not a name watcher on here. I could care a less what people use for a name and what initials it has on it. Your simply trolling as your ego must be low this week as you have this pattern. Not only do you have a pattern but instead of staying on topic, you always like putting people down. Classic self esteem issues...

                                        You should give yourself a little gold star, you sound oh so very proud of yourself. Good job Misty!

                                        • The definition of trolling is starting a thread specifically to cause trouble or to take over a thread by causing trouble.

                                          Let's read this thread from the beginning and see which fits the definition.

                                          I do find you a hoot and a half though. As do most people.

                                          It's hilarious when you tell a vet anesthesiologist that YOU have so much more experience than she does in sedation. And you're a vet tech.

                                          It's hilarious when you tell a DVM that she needs to learn something about vet medicine because you have so much more experience than she does in that regard. And you're a vet tech.

                                          It's hilarious when you tell a professional equine dentist that you know so much more than they do about teeth and floating, with your decades of experience and all. And you're a vet tech.

                                          It's hilarious when you tell a cardiologist that she should learn as much as you know about heart health, she needs to go to school. Like you didn't. And you're a vet tech.

                                          It's hilarious when you tell a poster she's ignorant and backyardish because she doesn't think clover slobbers kills horses. And that she must have cheapo horses she doesn't care about in her backyard. And that poster works for Hilltop.
                                          But you ARE a vet tech.

                                          I feel for the vet techs out there...don't worry, we all know only one is a tad...overzealous about herself.

                                          But yeah, calling everyone else stupid all the time and derailing threads with your silliness is not bullying or trollish. Only thing trolling is when people get tired of it and point out all the ways you've shot yourself in the foot in the past.

                                          And as for your supreme feelings of supremecy: Those only work with this current screen name. Your alter, FlyingHorsePath, sure likes to go begging information from those people you've insulted time and again for being "stupid" and not as experienced as you are. Did notice you stopped using your alter at the same time I pointed out that you have an alter that isn't the brainiac you think you are. Your alter is also the only person I've ever seen support you when you go all witchy on the BB with false information.



                                          Hmmm, maybe I will give myself a gold star.
                                          You jump in the saddle,
                                          Hold onto the bridle!
