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!

  • No-Reinstatement Bracelet Link is up and running

    My goodness! Where did everyone go while I was struggling to figure the easy way with which I could use Paypal?

    <span class="ev_code_red">I finally got the links up and running.</span>


    On the same page are all the links to the Petition and the Web Site and the Items for sale.

    The links for Paypal all should work. You can order any number of bracelets either singly or in groups of five each. And, anyone who would like to make a donation can make it. I have just gotten safe envelopes to use for return mail of the bracelets.

    God Bless! and may we get a zillion signatures so we can prove that the "grassroots" are strong and hardy and we won't rub shoulders at our shows with convicted felons who have defrauded Insurance Companies and horse owners of the just returns.

    Like weeds we are strong and invincible!

    Ahem! I just spent two days getting this up and running so guys let's go! Where are you all? OK! so Erin locked you out. That's not the worse thing in the world.

    That's what PV buddies wanted. Now I know it works because I did get two orders. It's private no one will ever know what you did unless you actually wear the bracelet. We're all here and we don't have to fight! We know we're right.

    Next time ignor the trolls who try to get a thread shut down because they don't like it. We've got bigger fish to fry.

          Thanks Snowbird. I ordered mine... and a few to give to friends!

            I have a paypal account and it's being cranky. Grrr. This happens quite often (so much for the convenience and ease of technology)...

            I'm working on it.

              Snowy -
              Ordered mine. Took the 5 deal. Some to give away, one will be going to my sister in NC.

                Who is still wearing theirs from the original group sent out?

                I paired mine with a red stoned bracelet, and have not taken it off yet.

                  Finally as I got to understand how it works; if you don't have Paypal and you say so it opens a page where you can use any credit card.

                  Amazing! probably the most overlooked genius in the web. It me so long because they made it too easy.

                  Thank you the orders get sent to me so I can print them out and ship them off.

                  I can still learn it's just that now adays it takes me four days what I used to do an an hour.

                      not to create any conflict but are you all aware that the american heart association has been selling red bracelets for the last several years. why do you want to confuse a valid push for a cause that kills 12 times as many women as breast cancer and as of 2005 heart disease kills more women in the united states than men. those bracelets are worn to keep on the forefront the importance to woman how heart disease is such a killer of women in this country. don't you think you could pick another color as to not interfer with something as important as this cause is? i understand you feel your cause is an important one, but it pales by comparison to the american heart associations rallying point to make women aware of the dangers of the no. one killer of women in this country.

                        There are only so many colors available for these bracelets. If someone should mistake the bracelet for an American Heart Association bracelet, no harm done. The bracelet is a way of raising money, I don't think anyone wearing one is going to be accused of misrepresentation either way.

                          Agree with Harry Johnson.

                            We know where the money goes for the bracelets and if the red makes someone think of heart disease, that is good too. I am sure all of us has been touched by that somehow.

                                I'd like to point out that while you're all over here selling bracelets to each other for what reason I can't quite fathom, there are some real life atrocities happening RIGHT NOW to horses that could really use what some might call your "misdirected energy" and "self-righteous blather".


                                I really hope you'll all direct your outrage where it can do some good. Good luck.

                                  thanks snowbird! ordering mine in the next few minutes.

                                  And spina? its two different kinds of abuse. Read up and so will we.

                                    Hi Noctis - I HAVE read up, and from what I can tell, the PV issue is about a horrible thing that happened 10 years ago - to ONE horse - by a couple of people who were punished and have (some think) paid their dues and done their time and others think there is no atoning for that sin, and the sinners should not be allowed to join a club that apparently is only open to sin-free people like themselves.
                                    Everyone is entitled to their opinion. Just thought I'd point out that we all might be better off spending our time trying to prevent future abuse and cruelty to horses than in ranting about such an old issue, and where no horses are at risk. You don't have to like him, trust him ot give him your business, but does anyone really think PV would do this again - that by being a member it would put horses in danger? I think of all the members of USEF, he's one we don't have to worry about.

                                      I have one of the original NR bracelets on, right next to my Livestrong and One bracelets.

                                        I see nothing wrong with several bracelets that are red on any wrist.

                                        I think you overestimate our numbers and the size of our cause. Everyone has a heart (well maybe!) We only want to prevent convicted and confessed felons limited to those convicted of crimes against horses I doubt our concern will be confused either by the red in our National Flag which represents the red blood spilled for freedom. Nor will it be confused by the red tag on communism.

                                        Our bracelets says "NO REINSTATMENT" I doubt anyoine except those in the horse world will understand and I for one have no objectiobn to being mistaken for those other good causes.
