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!

    However you decide to tell her, don’t say anything like “we’ve all noticed...” because it’s bad enough having one person notice and tell you, but 1000 times worse to think that everyone knows and they’ve been discussing it.

      I found a few years ago that my deodorants weren't working that well and tried some of the inexpensive "natural" deodorants and they just didn't work at all. But some of the better ones work well. I honestly think that the "smell" is your body reacting to the chemicals in the deodorant, not actually body odor. And the more I tried to find something better (e.g. the "clinical strength" type) the worse it got. It's like my body just started rejecting them for some reason. No other changes.

      Give Native or Schmitts a try. I like them both but the Native has a nicer (softer/smoother) texture. They don't work as well as an antiperspirant, but they are so otherwise great that I don't care.

      They cost $10-13/container but it lasts a long time. I know you can buy Native at Target but I usually just order them.

        It makes you so self conscious. When I was in middle and high school, I had issues with sweating a lot too (luckily not the smell so much back then). Like, huge underarm sweat stains, not little itty bitty ones, even when it was freezing outside. It really has only recently, like the last couple of years, started letting up. But for the longest time I only wore either black tops or tops that hid it, I could never wear anything cute or colorful. I honestly think it was a bit part of why I had such low self esteem. I tried everything short of injections because my doctor wouldn't let me. So I feel hard for anyone dealing with stuff like that. I hope he finds something! My favorite has been the Schmidt's brand, it's a bit pricier than the regular ones but it lasts through work, the barn, and taekwondo in one day.

          I'll have to look at the Native! I love the lavender Schmidts one, but it is pretty rough if you don't let it come to body temperature and I'm impatient.

            I had a similar problem and after some googling I read that sometimes bacteria builds up as a result of the antiperspirant. I quit it cold turkey, use nothing and smell way less believe it or not.

              I sweat a lot, my whole life. I smell worst after swimming. Its not hygiene and it shows a lack of awareness to assume that.
              its definitely worse if I have spicey, garlic or onion and wine.

              There is a surgeon that will do a flap surgery to remove sweat glands, but I don't want to mess with anything near my lymphatic systems.

                I have found that if deodorant starts to fail, it's worth doing a couple of days of sponging underarms with an alcohol water mix. Pure alcohol is a bit stingy. It works to knock out the bacteria growth. Do it a couple of times a day and continue with the deodersnt as well.

                  I have a male friend who used to have a horrible BO - not just the usual "manly" smell after a hard days' work, but something truly horrible. His hygiene was good, he just smelled...a LOT. Turned out that his body reacted to chemicals in soaps and body washes. Once he tried quitting those as such and only using very natural soaps or just pure water, his BO issues disappeared completely.

                    Thanks, all. We're both fans of Dr, Bronner's castile soap in the shower, and I've ordered Schmitts and Native to try

                      As a teenager, I had a horrible time finding a deoderant that worked. Huge sweat stains no matter what I did. Clinical strength helped some. Then I started waxing my underams vs shaving. Problem solved

                        As a "stinky" person, I can so relate to this woman, lol. I practice good hygiene, wear clean clothes, etc., but if I am sweaty long enough I start to get pretty smelly. I used all the most powerful deodorants and none of them could hold me. I reluctantly switched to this natural deodorant thinking there was no way it would work. To my surprise, it's the most effective thing I have found to date. So for all of you who get stinky, it's worth a try! (and I can usually find it pretty cheaply at TJMaxx.
