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!

They are obsessed with you but you're an idiot for not ignoring them and making them feel important. DUH - they are probably former friends and are doing this to bother you. And if it were someone else except EM making the points she makes the crazies would rally because we all know that EM is mostly right and she is the only one with enough guts to say it. My bet is Diva's Watdfa, Pureponymom, some others and horseyninjawarrior are the same person. That person is really the crazy one. Complains about everything from EM to food at WEF. She is the chain smoking nurse Ratched from One Flew Over the Cookoo's Nest and the rest of you are the inmates!!! If you really want to slam EM then get out behind the fake user names and tell everyone who you are. The people who slam on this forum not just about EM but about others are hideous low class trashy losers who must be living a miserable existence not even at a high school but maybe a 5th grade level. That horsey even posted the video isn't about EM is comical. Come out of the closet horsey and others or STFU.

            On the subject of censorship.

            I can see why Mods would close a thread-- they have been clear and for the most part fair about keeping things HR, not making COTH Fora a place for advertising and such.

            But I think it is a bad idea to let them make ill-conceived threads disappear. It means that no one needs to take anything in writing seriously. After all, one could have thought about the consequences of starting a thread *before* doing so, right? Also, IME, not everyone has the same power to get stuff they don't like removed. I'm not down with the powerful and short-sighted getting perks that the weak and circumspect do not.

            If it's on the web, it's in the public view forever.... or until it gets lost in the sea of irrelevant stuff posted.

              horseyninjawarrior - both "Amber Hill" and "Post Trot Jump" have made the same error in the user's name... It is horseyninjawarrior not Horseynjwarrior.

              Just saying.

                    There is. One of those "I am 16 how do I get to the Olympics when I've never jumped higher than a foot and a half" multiple houseguests threads was closed with the Mods noting "it was coming from inside the house."

                      In answer to your question, the site admin of diva posted this on that very topic:
                      "In fairness to your question, Amber Hill violated Rule 8 of our registration guidelines when they posted that a certain person owned the website. Since we are the owners we know that the content posted was obviously untrue. Diva has addressed this issue since our inception and we have zero tolerance for such comments and AmberHill knew full well that the information posted was untrue. Normally we give a timeout when that occurs but given AmberHill's posts on other blogs about Diva, after using this site for her free marketing and personal business, we determined a permanent removal was in order."

                              Might be just your writing style, but I imagined the whole rant as coming out in one long run-on verbal sentence, leaving you gasping for breath at the end.

                              And semi-hysterical.

                              EM is reaping only the predictable consequences of what she's sown.
                              Are you one of her sock puppets?

                                Great... so now all of you are a self proclaimed group who controls coth. How coth does not see a problem with this or threats of physical harm to me is beyond words... dropping houses on my head? and HNJwarrior wants my husband to put some sort of choke chain on me? lethal injections? These are borderline terroristic threats which COTH does not moderate these posts?.

                                Given that both of my front gates have been vandalized, someone attempted to burn down QHF when they thought emma and I were on property, child services has been falsely called, death threats have been made, vile, disparaging videos with racial slurs are made (supposedly nothing to do with me even though posts equate Humble to Rumble and Mandarino to Gambino) and COTH allows this all to go on... what is it going to take? Does something need to happen to me or my daughter before all of you get hit with a reality check?

                                What all of you are doing amounts to terroristic threats...

                                "A terroristic threat is a crime generally involving a threat to commit violence communicated with the intent to terrorize another, to cause evacuation of a building, or to cause serious public inconvenience, in reckless disregard of the risk of causing such terror or inconvenience. It may mean an offense against property or involving danger to another person that may include but is not limited to recklessly endangering another person, harassment, stalking, ethnic intimidation, and criminal mischief."

                                If you do not like what I post under my first amendment rights, then do NOT read it or comment... just ignore it... no one has a gun to your head and is forcing you to respond, make threats against me or is forcing HNJwarrior to create these videos...
