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!

    Good God, the A shows sound more and more like an Aaron Spelling show on Fox than a sporting event!

    Did they just check up on him and find cocaine or was there some other parole violation? That seems kind of fishy that they were able to search him for drugs based on an unrelated past incident....

      Onyx, it just sounded like you wanted the general "us" to fix the problem, and in my experience, until someone is ready to get help, there isn't much that "we", any of us, can do to help the person realize they are in trouble.

        That is too bad he got busted for coke, but what he does on his own time is up to him and i really dont care. It really wont change my opinion that he has worked very hard to make towerheads one of the best, if not the best horse show website.

        Maybe its because I was a towerhead before it was a website or because I still moderate their forums, but I feel that a lot of COTH BBers make him out to look a LOT worse then he really is...

        That being said, the crime against the minor is terrible and can be very damaging to the victim(i have first hand experience in that case) But i really dont care if he does coke!!!<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

        Well, I care if he does coke, because for every one person who does coke, the problem grows. If no one is doing these drugs, then there is no problem.

        The problem lies with each individual person- they are all a piece of the greater puzzle.

        Anyway, I don't know this guy, but that's my two cents. I can't judge anything else, but I DO care about people doing drugs. It's disgusting and horrible.

            He's on parole........ they can check up on him or anyone else on parole anytime they want to.

            Nothing fishy about that at all. It's one of the penalties you pay when you are a parolee.

            If you don't want them to check up on you, then don't become a person who is on parole. Very simple concept.

            It wasn't just him - law enforcement has been checking up on all the registered sex offenders they can find in certain areas, due to that little girl's recent disappearance.

            The scary thing is how many registered sex offenders who are paroled just fall through the cracks and the authorities can't find them.... happens every day.


            • #26
              Yeah, really who cares what he does with "children" on his spare time, or that he supports drug traffic...as long as he runs a "fun" website....wow, how sad!

                How do any of you know he didn't ask for help?

                And how many of you subscribe to TH? Seems many of you are “Monday Morning Quarterbacking”. And to suggest that coke is so 90's, what are you suggesting, that he start using crack or what is vogue right now?

                MB, I know you don't like him, but please leave him alone. We've had this argument before (love you anyway; however, I think in this instance, as Weatherford and I do often on certain subjects, let's agree to disagree). It is not nice to hit a person when they are down.

                As for where does the money for the subscription for TH go? It has been hashed over and over, but I believe there are costs associated with running a website...I'm not an expert on the subject. I do know that KK has not "made" money from TH. I happen to know him well, and know this for a fact.

                  cocaine? Yup, KEN KRAUS!!!!!! He even made the 11:00 O'clock news
                  being led away in handcuffs.
                  Apparently the PB police did a sweep of all known sex offenders after
                  that girl was kidnapped a few weeks ago, and I guess ol' Kenny just let
                  himself get swept up in the net. While on one hand I am happy to see the
                  reason he got nabbed was for cocaine Sorry ... I edited the original and this too SoEasy.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

                  If it is so 90's then we as parents and professionals better take a good look at the environment we've created, I surely hope you're wrong.

                    It's not technically his website. He just runs it. It belongs to some other people who were paying all the costs of it and so they started a fee to help offset those costs.

                          Would that be before or after he violated his parole???

                            It's not nice to hit a person when they are down!!! Oh give me a break...he's on parole..violated that parole..got caught with an illegal substance..did anyone FORCE him to do coke?? Did anyone FORCE him to committ the crime he is on parole for..A BIG NO ON ALL COUNTS. He did all this to himself. And trust me I speak from 1st hand experience. Yes their is help out there but you can't force someone to get help and if you do it won't work. The person has to WANT to get clean etc..until then there is not much we as a society can do except lock him up to keep the rest of us safe. And why can't we judge him? He's the one that violated his parole. He knew the rules it was his choice not to abide by them. I don't know the man at all but just the fact that he is a registered sex offender is enough for me.

                                Um, not really. It's a website, not someone's basement.

                                This is really distressing to me. I grew up with Kenny, and always liked him. I'm so sorry that his life has gone in such a direction.

                                  Love you too MAD. And I don't hate him. I am from a family that has had substance abuse problems and If he did ask for help and really wants it he MUST change his lifestyle. A recovering alcoholic does not hang out in Bars. And although it is a bit more difficult for him he Should change his career and stay away from Children. I am not saying Sex offenders can't change but statistics show the percentage rate is pretty low. This is just another instance where he was caught breaking the law.

                                  MAD, I hope I see you when I am down in Wellington and we Will NOT discuss this.

                                    His coke habit is a personal problem. Being a convicted sex offender is not.

                                    Coke was more like the eighties. Hello, David Bowie.

                                    Anyway, for all of you people who think it's a simple task to offer help to drug addicts and they'll take you up on the offer, I sympathize your worldliness or lack thereof. There may be a drug war going on, but please tell me who you think is winning.

                                      I never really like TH and wouldn't know KK if he walked into my office.

                                      I do however think its odd that most of us on here would avaid buying a home in a neighborhood where a know sex offender lives yet many of us see KK as the "exception" to the rule. We would likley protest a sex offender moving to our development or neighborhood. We'd warn our kids to avoid the "odd man" who lives down the block. Why is KK different? The families and childhood friends of abusers and offenders all have sob stories too but you don't let your kids play in his yard!
                                      Is it because he knows important people in the sport? What separates him from the rest of the registered offender list?
