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!

        Because in generalities many/most on this board 'care' about those less financially and socially fortunate in life but in reality, many/some on this board get their rocks off mocking their spelling, their housing, their mud, and their choices. It's a bit of do as I wish and you will be helped... not do as you wish, of your own free will...and I find that interesting.

          I don't think it is as much a "being poor" issue as a "being stupid,ignorant" issue.

            Is that in your opinion or did you do some kind of statistical analysis? Have any facts to back up your opinion?

            I don't believe, if you go back and look, that I've mocked much of anyone for their lack of spelling, mud or housing. And oh, by the way, compassion for people and animals is not directly linked to income, education or lifestyle. You can be poor and ignorant and still be compassionate. As a matter of fact, there are some studies out there that show a direct correlation to high income and LACK of compassion.

              who said that anything I've typed on this thread has anything to do with any of your comments? Did you gather any data, do a statistical analysis, or just jump when you heard a shot fired?

              Who made my posts all about you?

                I wasn't mocking her spelling either; I was letting her know the correct term for her horse's issue. Generally, accurate ads at least would help get someone to take them seriously when viewing.

                  Hot mess is right. And I always bring up the folks that put up a pic of the horse's butt, kind of as a joke you know? on CL, and glory be here it is. Those pics are so sorry they might as well not be up at all.

                  I feel for the person though, she doesn't need the mouth to feed or the problems this horse has. I guess she hasn't got the funds to euth him either, just a bad deal all around.

                    I know your heart was in the right place, it was....at the beginning. When you started posting her emails and your directives on what should be done...I got really sour on your approach, and fast.

                    I'm over a thousand miles away.

                    You aren't.

                    Put your money where your opinion is or stop telling her what she should do.

                    That's my directive. We seem to be ok with telling others what to do, so I think I'm golden.

                      Oh man, everything has to do with politics if you ever read comments on Yahoo articles. I mean, restaurant reviews turn into political ranting. This is just as funny.

                        Poor little horse. If I had the money I'd pull him, spoil him with carrots, and call a vet out to euth him. But I'm broke.

                          I wonder if she believes if she sells stallion for super cheap it becomes someones issue to euth if in deed it does need to be put down?

                            Here's a new ad on this guy:http://plattsburgh.craigslist.org/grd/3418800398.html

                            Genuinely curious - what is a "ridgeling"?

                              I absolutely would buy him if I had the funds to do so...I have only two horses for a reason...that's what I can afford to keep. This girl bought him as an "investment" with her friend and ended up with the horse and no co-owner. She knowingly participated in the original purchase of this gelding, so she very well knew there would be some care involved to keep him.

                              In the new ad posted by Shine, he appears to be at least part Arabian by the looks of that nicely dished head.

                                A horse with only one descended testicle. Apparently she has an epidemic of that on her farm.

                                    So she should have known what the complications could be. Thanks for the explanation on a "ridgeling".

                                        I don't see the problem with leaving them un-crimped because she states "but is fine with my mother geldings." I don't know what a mother gelding is...

                                          I've avoided this thread because I'm so tired of CL trainwrecks, but I've gotta say that for every time I saw this thread title in the OC forum, I did wonder if maybe the head tilt was from being a bit crooked in the womb. I'm kinda disappointed that it's from an actual injury instead.
