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!

    Holy cow. I don't even know where to start and I'm not sure how this thread got so out of hand.

    A. Fooler, what are you talking about? People continuing to support people with questionable backgrounds doesn't seem to have anything to do with this post.

    B. Beastiality should never be compared to homosexuality. Because of the consent factor. Beastiality or how I like to refer to 'Animal Sex Abuse' is more comparitive to rape. It all comes down to consent. Period.

    C. Rape will never be legalized and especially not because of homosexuality. To say so is pure ignorance.

        If you are not informed of what people are thinking and doing then it will bite you in the butt.

        People who engage in bestiality are not just lurking in the shadows they are REALLY attempting to MAKE IT LEGAL. Rapists and pedophiles as well. THey have medical backing in a backwards sort of way in that they cannot be rehabilitated at this point. NO AMOUNt of medical or psychological intervention has been successful although many thing have been tried for decades.

        I don't think any of us that have attempted to bring this to your attention AGREE with it, but are simply stating FACTUAL evidence! Cheez and Rice people!

        Go after those that want to have sex with animals and children NOT the people trying to bring to light REAL LIFE!!!!

        THe tangents y'all go off on and the assumptions YOU make are ridiculous! No amount of insisting what is in your mind actually is in someone else's is going to make it so! READ for comprehension!!!!

        No one wanted to carry bad news forever because the venom of the person receiving the unwelcome news might be perpetrated against the messenger. THINGS HAVE NOT CHANGED! You would think with an education that would stop. Nope.

        Good grief!!!!

          Are people really so weak that hormones and urges rule their lives? I've never understood the "need to act it out". If you close your eyes you can be with anyone, anywhere.

                So, only with regards to sexual matters do horses have any "rights"? Do they give consent for us to ride them? Whip them? Stick large pieces of metal in their mouths and pull? Hobble them? Load them on trailers with no shock absorbers for long rides?

                Personally, I abhor bestiality. However, does it really hurt them anymore than the myriad of other things we subject them to? I doubt it. Most of us just have a BIG “thing” about who and what is an appropriate sexual partner.

                  A) Actually it does. You provided a website for fighting animal sex abuse. There is an adult male group, North American man boy or close to that, who has been fighting for several decades for their right to have sexual relationships with underage boys. If it was ok for Michael Jackson to have sleepovers with boys, then why not them?
                  B) Don't see where anyone compared the two. What was stated is that some of the other groups may use some of the same steps taken by homosexual groups in an attempt to gain overall acceptance.
                  C) Until the advent of rape kits it was difficult to consistently identify and prove rape. Before then each DR seemed to work off their own experience and opinions. For many years rape was in effect legal because it was so hard to identify and then prosecute.

                    Exactly my point. A responsible adult should be able to control their hormones. People have become totally self involved these days. Only what THEY want counts.

                        That group is so completely ridiculous. And the fact that you think that gay adults gaining the right to marriage would be in any way comparable to NAMBLA shows your ignorance. I don't know a single gay person who would support this group or any other form of pedophilia/rape/bestiality, etc. (in other words, in cases where the other party can/does not give CONSENT). NAMBLA may say that they "cooperate with gay, lesbian, feminist, and other liberation movements," but show me ONE group of those people that would actually support/cooperate with NAMBLA. Not a single one.

                            Animals have the right not to be raped, I'll stand by that one, whether laws have caught up with that or not. The other stuff you state isn't abuse so not sure what you mean. I also said later in that post that a society is judged on how it treats (or protects) it's weakest citizens and that SOME people feel animals are included in that statement. As for does it hurt them, it's not a question of whether it hurts them (which in a lot of cases it does) it's more that it's morally wrong to engage in sexual acts with something that doesn't have control over itself. Are you saying that just because a child molester doesn't physically beat a child but touches them inappropriately you're saying what? No big deal? Harm is relative vs. whether or not the act is legal which in many states it's not, and the whole point of my post is that eventually it will be illegal in all states. Not sure what you mean here. I'm not a PETA fan if that is what you are trying to say...

                              Again this comes down to consent, no matter how much child molesters, people who engage in sex with animals etc try to equate their disgusting acts with society accepting gay marriage their wrong on all accounts. I am not sure how many times it's been said here but I'll say it again, children and animals cannot give consent for sexual acts, the states laws on the books make it illegal end of story. Those states that haven't caught up with anti bestiality laws will eventually (if not sooner driven by stories like the OP's link). Children will never be able to give consent period and neither can an animal.

                              I think the issue with some people is that they think the acts conducted in the privacy of adults is oogey. That is fine but it's CONSENTING adults, who are not harming one another. Animals are under the control and domain of humans, and we are obligated to make sure as with ANY abuse that they aren't subjected to it. If someone beat the living daylights out of a horse I would want to see the person put in jail. If someone was breaking into a barn and doing unspeakable acts to a horse I would absolutely want that person in jail. I'm not sure why this is so hard for some people to understand.

                                Fact - most states have long standing laws against sexual activity between same sex adults.
                                Fact - society, in general, has changed it's views on same sex unions and activity to the point of codifying same sex marriages.
                                Fact - other groups hope to gain acceptance by following many of the same actions used by the homosexual and transgender communities.

                                  No thanks, child molesters and the NAMBLA wesite are really not my scene. It's not a website that I will ever visit. You are the one that brought them up. In fact, you seem pretty fixated on it.

                                    Let's see.
                                    Fact: African Americans used to be considered property, and for a long time were not allowed to vote.
                                    Fact: For a long time, women were also not allowed to vote.
                                    Fact: Now, African Americans are free and BOTH groups are allowed to vote!
                                    Oh my gosh, the next thing on the horizon is legalized man/child/duck-billed platypus polygamy!

                                      LOL! I didn't bring it up but when I read it I remembered the name of the group. They have been in the news often, even in Readers Digest.
                                      Typical mindless twit move to accuse someone of being "fixated" on something when you disagree with the facts!
                                      Oh, and ole Harry who founded the modern day gay rights movement always insisted NAMBLA be part of Gay Pride parades. You can go look that up yourself, toots.

                                        Let's see.
                                        Fact: African Americans used to be considered property, and for a long time were not allowed to vote.
                                        Fact: For a long time, women were also not allowed to vote.
                                        Fact: Now, African Americans are free and BOTH groups are allowed to vote!
                                        Oh my gosh, the next thing on the horizon is legalized man/child/duck-billed platypus polygamy!
                                        Logical progression for your example would be Native American reservations being reincorporated into the US.

                                        We are discussing how society changes its opinion of, in this case sexuality. A mere 40 years ago living together before marriage, unwed pregnancy, divorce, mixed race/color marriages and homosexuality were not widely accepted, in fact frowned upon. Today all are widely accepted. Many people of that time probably did not foresee how society would change.
                                        Having lived through this era, I am well aware of how peoples will attempt to present themselves in order to gain acceptance.

                                          Well, no.

                                          Only what THE OTHER PARTY THEY ARE INVOLVING CONSENTS TO counts.
