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!

  • Simple yet comprehensive: How "animal rightists" do what they do -WHY you should care

    http://www.pet-law.com/articles/42

    How They Do it:

    How Animal Rightists Pass Laws

    1. They invent problems or magnify small ones. The real problems generally are much less than the good that comes from the same activity but we are only told about the problems.
    2. The animal rightists batter public officials to solve the problems they've announced. Although they are a small minority, they never stop complaining
    3. When officials say "Okay, tell us what to do," the ARs are there with examples of laws passed in other places.
    4. Since the new laws never solve the ‘problem,' the ARs seek greater punishments and still more laws to help enforce the old ones
    5. As one law begins to spread, a new ‘problem' is identified and the next step begins – go back to #1, above.


    Why You Should Care:


    --because sooner or later, their agenda will affect YOU and your pets and livestock.

    "The money to support the animal rights agenda comes from millions of Americans who love animals and who, without understanding how their money will actually be used, mail checks to HSUS, PeTA, and other lesser known AR organizations."

    "Surprisingly, when the subject is unfamiliar, the bigger the lie, the more likely people are to believe it."

    Wayne Pacelle, President of HSUS:
    "One generation and out. We have no problem with the extinction of domestic animals. They are creations of human selective breeding."

    "The truth is that animal rights is mental illness masquerading as philosophy."

    "What's going on is a quiet, mostly non-violent war for the future of America. The major battles are just starting: they will be fought and won by one side or the other over the next five years."

    Are you serious?? Did that guy REALLY say THAT? WTH?!

    "The truth is that animal rights is mental illness masquerading as philosophy."
    Somehow i don't find it so hard to believe anymore, when people are spewing crap like the extinction of the human race is the way to go...
    Yes, I smell like a horse. No, I don't consider that to be a problem.

      This is the quote that should make it clearly obvious what nutjobs they are:

      'Les U. Knight' (pseudonym), "Voluntary Human Extinction," Wild Earth, Vol. 1, No. 2 "If you haven't given voluntary human extinction much thought before, the idea of a world with no people in it may seem strange. But, if you give it a chance, I think you might agree that the extinction of Homo sapiens would mean survival for millions, if not billions, of Earth-dwelling species ... Phasing out the human race will solve every problem on earth, social and environmental."

      And right after I read this, the HSUS commercial with all the sad puppies comes on TV and it makes me SO angry that they're using them as pawns in their game. I bet not a single one of the sad puppies in the commercial was helped at all by HSUS, even after being used by them.

        The COTH posters known for being animal rights extremists and defenders of those will now say you are misunderstanding them, they are only looking after the welfare of animals by eliminating all use of animals by humans.

        With their illogical demands we ban all uses of animals by humans, one at the time as they are doing, because someone, somewhere may abuse an animal, they don't realize they are carelessly calling for using a nuclear bomb to kill the mosquito bothering them.

        Worse yet, they come post their animal extremists agendas on, from all places, a horse forum.
        Last I looked, horses are animals and domesticated ones at that.

        As someone stated before, "you can't fix stupid".

        Here is a list of quotes from just one source, the HSUS:

            On the Rick and Bubba show they are doing a "Best of" week, and reran the time the PETA people had a cage with naked people in it next to the circus, and when Speedy went down, had his own cage and bullhorn, and was protesting PETA. It was hysterical. Speedy had a big Mac, milk and was calling the PETA people out on the fact that they had leather belts, leather shoes, and one had a nice suede/sheerling jacket on. He also was talking to one of the guys, but Steve only used his bullhorn, and the protester was really ticked when Steve said he had rights too. PETA people think they are the only ones with rights.

            I bet that nice gate guard here wondered why I was giggling when I showed him my ID this morning. He probably thought I started my liquid lunch early.

              .... soon, they will be back! The RARAs will be in posting in this thread saying we just don't understand them. "Please don't label them" MANURE!

              We know who they are, we know their agenda. Soon we'll hear and see all of the repeated propaganda.

                He did but it was taken out of context. He was referring to breeding heirloom breeds of cattle, and not believing that they needed to be protected by an Endangered Species act.

                  Here is the truth about Richard Berman who started ActivistCash, CCF, and Humanewatch

                  He keeps 92 cents of every dollar raised in his charities. Known as "Dr Evil" by 60 Minutes. He lobbies AGAINST MADD trying to lower the BAC requirements, and lobbies FOR Cigarette Companies, and Big Ag.

"They" have "no problem" with "one generation and out" -- doesn't matter to me WHO he is talking about, it's promoting typical RARA fascist control of what OTHER people do with animals.

                                My opinion, I would not go to an animal rights forum and try to tell them why they should have animals and go enjoy nice carriage rides in NYC.
                                That they should be thankful for all that animals give us, from companions, transportation, entertainment and sport, to food and all other products they provide us when dead.

                                Why do some animal rights extremists and defenders, spouting their agendas, think they can come to an animal user's forum as here and not be called on how little sense animal rights extremism makes to those using animals, here owning and training and enjoying all about horses?

                                That is an important difference and why some are considered extremists, they have not learned to live and let live.

                                  Wasn't it Ingrid whatsername of PETA that said something to the effect of "a rat is a pig is a boy" in reference to the "value" of animal versus human life?

                                  I seem to recall several years ago an article in COTH documenting that PETA had spent large sums of the money they collected for their "cause" to buy personal belongings and homes for PETA Board members. ANyone recall that article?

                                  I had a horse who was getting down on his knees and slurping rainwater from the puddles in his muddy turnout rather than get his hooves muddy walking to the water trough. Wonder how long he'd survive in the wild, poor abused, sheltered, pampered creature that he was. (I immediately hung two water buckets in his stall) And having to work 45 mins to an hour a day! Slavery!!!!

                                    Just like you can quote selected phrases from the Bible and make it say absolutely anything you want, so can you do the same thing from any other source.

                                    I have no great love for Mr. Pacelle, but he very well might have been quoted out of context at that particular time.

                                    As for rabid RARAs, I have found them very few and far between on this forum. Now, perhaps someone may find somebody else who disagrees with certain points of view, but in the long run they are miles and miles away from believing in the RARA viewpoint. But it's so much easier to just slap a label on someone and let it go at that.

                                      Notice that he provides no proof that he was 'quoted out of context' ....

                                      I have been following the HSUS for decades; this was said in the early 90s, when they hadn't hit their full stride as the behemoth money-making machine they are today; they were much more openly radical, and that statement fits perfectly with where they were then - and where they still are, even if it's not for public consumption. They have smoothed out the edges since, realizing that the public MOR stance is much more lucrative.

                                        If that was true, they wouldn't be AGAINST BSL, and OK with hunting. You should be going after the tru ARA groups like ALF/PETA. Context SHOULD be important to you since you have groups trying to use disinformation against you. You are doing the same thing you are accusing the anti carriage people of doing. Facts DO matter.

                                        Which of the issues that they are against, are you for? Canned hunts, Cockfighting, Dog Fighting, Horse tripping, Bear Baiting?

                                        And Bluey/Mildot- It makes you look stupid to call someone an ARA when they own 3 dogs, 1 horse, care for 5 barn cats, eat meat, wear leather, and are against BSL, and ok with small abbatoirs in every city for horse slaughter. That's attacking the messenger, just because I disagree with you on commercial slaughter for human consumption.
                                        You can't dispute anything about Richard Berman in the link that I linked. He makes 92 cents of every dollar donated to his "Faux charities", and is employed by Big Ag, The alchohol industry and tabacco industry.
