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!

      Well I hope someone reports her to SS. I would if I was a USEF member. (Do you have to be a member?)
      I have the unedited screen cap if anyone needs it as backup, where she admits they train with Navarro.

      Unless they operate as non USEF members as well? It kind of makes me scared for all the local circuit kids whose parents may no know about stuff like that.

        • What bothers me the most about the comment about the 10 year old having her period is the line right before that referring to individual body time clocks, which seems to be saying that once girls get their period, they're absolutely ready for sex:

          But each community and each family and each individual have a part, as do the time clocks of each body.

          My friend’s daughter had a “visit from the friend”, at 10 years old, and he is incredibly aware and strategic on the subject.

              We don’t know that the only evidence in George’s case was old. It’s not a stretch to surmise that someone that claims as many partners as he does (and counting!) in an autobiography published just a couple of years ago is still or until very recently active. Any more recent partners don’t necessarily have to have been underage but there was that post a while back by someone wondering in hindsight if a BNT who had been a student of George’s might have been trying to recruit a student at a clinic to go work with George in the 90s. Poster said it seemed a bit odd at the time because the rider was not the best it hardest working at the clinic, but was the only teenager that was a tall, slim, male. Might gave even used the phrase that he was the “type” of student George liked to work with.

                I think we’re on the same page.

                My thought process.
                This ban was not upheld due to old evidence.
                George’s ban was.
                Therefore, there is more than just old evidence on George.

                For clarity here is my original post (#4410):
                “Interesting is that the reason cited was old charges and what this might say about the GM ban that was upheld. Not necessarily the same arbitrator though.”

                  I wonder if that evidence also includes the harassment one of the witnesses to the SS case posted about on her Facebook page.

                  Why threaten the person and family members of you are innocent?

                    The more I read all of his comments, the more disgusted I am by this individual. I will stop there because the only other things I can say about this involve a lot of salty language.

                      We don’t know the evidence in EITHER the GM or the skating coach’s case, so it’s not our place to say it was consistent, inconsistent, right or wrong, just as it’s not legitimate for DC and those groups to be demanding “transparent” investigations. I think they want “transparency” so they can sit in judgement of the perp, but also in judgement of the investigators and the arbitrators.

                      Let’s not go all partisan over this, and instead respect the decision of the arbitrator.

                        I don’t think anyone was going “all partisan.” Both posters were pointing out that independent reviews work based on the information at hand. Neither poster was criticizing. Merely pointing out that the decision in the figure skater’s case pokes massive holes in the argument made by Diane Carney, Bonnie Navin and others who cling to the coat tails of morally corrupt people who happen to be successful in the horse industry. It also furthers the argument that Diane et al are pissed off because “my friend and money maker got caught.”

                          Because they're monsters.

                              Re: this incredible and repulsive statement by Duncan McIntosh. If the 11 year old in this scenario is unsure whether or not he was a victim; it's because he had been groomed carefully beforehand. That's why predators and child abusers groom their victims; it's another form of gaslighting to make the child question the nature of the relationship. It also makes them incredibly vulnerable to victim shaming, because they already believe that they are somehow responsible for their own abuse.

                              I had a sexual relationship with a married teacher in my high school for years; it continued after I went to college.

                              For decades afterwards, during the rare times I discussed it, I would not describe it as abuse, I described it as consensual, and I that *I* was the one that sexualized the relationship.

                              The relationship started as mentorship when I was 14 and did not involve intercourse until I was 16, the age of consent in that state at that time. *Not a coincidence.*

                              Having been previously abused, I was an ideal candidate. I was starved for attention and pathetically eager to please. And I had been raised to believe that sex was the price one paid for love and care. So would it be accurate to say that I sexualized the relationship? Yes, it was. Would it also be accurate to say that the situation was very carefully prepared and I was manipulated in ways I didn't understand? Yes, absolutely. I was very eager to start paying back the affection and attention I didn't feel I deserved.

                              The "grooming" had started long before I met this man. He only had a little work to do to finish it, and of course, wait until I was of legal age.

                              Does any of this make it something other than child abuse? Or something other than calculated predation of a child? Nope.

                              But it took me decades, literally decades (and all those therapists) to stop defending this relationship and see it for what it actually was.

                              I weep for that 11 year old boy who somehow feels that he was complicit in his own rape. And probably still wouldn't describe it as abuse.
                              Obviously a newborn baby does not know that he is gay. A newborn baby does not even understand that his hands are part of his own body, as opposed to interesting objects nearby.

                              Does an absolutely prepubescent child of 11, boy or girl, perceive sexual attraction (gay or straight) before their body is producing sex hormones, i.e. before puberty? I can understand an 18 year old knowing they are gay, then looking back and realizing they were were never into stereotypically “boy things”, but an 11 year old “knowing” they are gay before puberty? I certainly assume the gay or straight attribute is there, present, at birth. But does a prepubescent child of 11 PERCEIVE that when, in the future, they feel sexual attraction, it will be gay as opposed to straight? Reason #675 that having sex with 11 year olds is a crime.

                              I am female and straight, but was notably a “tomboy” as a child. Never into dolls and frilly dresses. Looking back, I was never gay, but perhaps a protofeminist who resisted some of the expectations foisted on her. I am particularly glad I resisted the one that said “You don’t need to study math, that’s for boys who want to become engineers. You should go to college, but you don’t need to like your brothers, since you won’t need to support yourself.” I hope the younger posters are aghast that this was the attitude, but it was.

                              I studied math.

                                Kids, no matter the age be it 11, 12 whatever, know who they are attracted to when they become cognizant of sexual attraction. They may not have the words, and that is more so for kids who grew up in the 50s and 60s vs today, but they know.

                                Kids know a lot. Sometimes they can’t articulate it because of grooming sometimes it’s not having the words.

                                I get what your saying but you are stereotyping. Men and women can love all things that society deems masculine and feminine respectively and still be gay.

                                      • I mean, I had crushes on boys when I was like 7,definitely not sexual but still had crushes. Never had a crush on a girl. That is probably a good hint.

                                          Kids know a lot. Sometimes they can’t articulate it because of grooming sometimes it’s not having the words.

                                          I get what your saying but you are stereotyping. Men and women can love all things that society deems masculine and feminine respectively and still be gay.
                                          But that is my point. Feelings of sexual attraction are part of the developmental process like the physical body changes that occur at puberty. I agree that a pubescent child doesn’t need to be told. I agree that is is determined at birth or conception.

                                          But in a child prior to the onset of puberty, which is set off by the sex hormones, the child is not feeling sexual attraction to ANYONE. I’m just saying that until a young boy or girl feels sexual attraction, they can’t have perceived that they are attracted to one gender or the other.
