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!

  • 5 - your PMs are full!

    Hey, 5! I tried to PM you, but your box was full. I'm the OP on the severe hunger pains post.

    Just wanted to tell you that YOU ROCK! I started using Tagamet like you suggested, and OMG, what a DIFFERENCE! No severe pains! I'm patiently waiting for my doc appointment, but I am absolutely floored by how much Tagamet helps! Thank you so, so much!

    JumpQH

    PS - thanks, mods, for letting me get this to 5!

    Glad I could help. Hope the ulcers go bye bye forever.

        Always Funny Syndicate Members

        Anyone trying to PM 5 about the syndicate for Always Funny:

        I will be sending you the info in a PM after I get back from the barn. I'm waiting on bluengray to verify her paypal account. (if it is the same as her email.)

        I have her address, and email, so I'll be sending that to everyone. (I offered to help 5 since I'm immune to criticism about being pushy.)

        And I'm having trouble with the forum saying it's reloading, but I found out that I can come into here thru the magazine site. So I'll be back this afternoon to give out info in PMs.

        Thanks to 5 and a little grey for helping out Always Funny. I did not think the old girl would last this long, but apparently being at BnG's and having good hoof care and good feed and grass and hay, plus that boyfriend (Funny's) has given her more years to live. Great work, BluenGray.

              OK walkinthewoods has a full mailbox, so she won't get my email. If anyone knows her, please tell her. OK she's contacted me, thank you!

              And remember, a nice note of thanks to Kim will be just as welcome as other things. Of course, we did not win the lotto last Wed. or Cloudy and Hattie Pattie would cover it all.

              oops, I don't think polydor is on the list, so let me send her a copy. She and many others were on the list on the original thread. So hopefully all got the PM, except for about 4 I think.
              And axl, I left you off, so I sent you a copy separately.

              And I just send some $ to the email given, and it showed bluengray's full name as the recipient, so I think we are good with paypal. I've asked her to post if she got the paypal.
              ok WalkInTheWoods has her PM, thank you.
              And I was told to go back to the list on page 39 of the thread about Always Funny to get the other names. A few have full mailboxes but I will try them again tonight or tomorrow.

                  hi everyone,

                  Thanks to everyone for their kind words and support! Funny is doing great and enjoying the warm weather. We are thrilled to see Funny enjoying everyday. She is a pleasure to have in the barn -and her beau loves having her here too. She is a classy girl, was definitely loved and well cared for by someone in her past days. Good food, friends, and Uncle Jimmys treats keep her happy. I can't wait to celebrate her birthday in January.

                  Again, thanks to everyone for helping out this great lady.

                          Over the counter cimitidine not sure if it is what you want for reflux though. I think they have something else over the counter for that.

                              Tagamet, as 5 said (thanks, 5!), is OTC Cimetidine. Cimetidine is an acid reducer. I was shocked at how much it helped me! I have acid reflux and use omep at night, and now Tagamet in the morning.

                              ETA: Per my gastro doc, I just plain make too much acid, and this is why I reflux. Nothing else wrong, but it sure makes life miserable!

                                  Minor highjack!!

                                  Just an fyi on Tagamet/cimetidine. It is indeed an H2 (histamine 2) blocker like Zantac/ranitidine and used primarily for reflux, but of the H2s available, it interacts with FAR more meds than the others. I use it. I think it works better and faster than some of the others, BUT I highly recommend you talk to your pharmacist because of the possible interactions.

                                  Ok, back to your regularly scheduled thread.....
