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!

        I lived right around the corner from him in Westport for 8 years. Often saw him at the corner market with Joanne....and he was always pleasant, funny and a real gentleman. And STILL gorgeous! What a sad loss.....I had enormous admiration for the amazing works they did with Hole In The Wall, etc......

            My mother was Clea's first grade teacher.

            Both Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward did "playground duty" with the other parents when they were in town.

            We (my mother and I) had lunch with him at the school picnic- we talked about car racing.

              Cool Hand Luke, Hud, Butch Cassidy, Slap Shot(!)...I am not big on movies and actors but Paul Newman was the exception. While me friends were busy drooling over teen heart-throbs I had pictures of Paul Newman on my walls. The most perfectly beautiful man ever created and yet his physical beauty paled in comparison to the amazing soul he possessed.
              Godspeed Paul.

                We have a lost a true gentleman today. The world is sadder today but richer for all that he gave.

                  Godspeed Mr. Newman. You will always be remembered.

                  A friend sent me the story below just couple weeks ago and while it gave me a chuckle, it also reminded me of the time I actually did get to meet him, and what a class act both he and Joanne are. And I remember to this day how giddy I felt in being in his presence.

                  ........ the email......
                  Only women of a certain era will fully appreciate this.... True story.

                  (If you don't understand this,tell your mother, she'll get it!)

                  A Michigan woman and her family were vacationing in a small New England town wherePaul Newman and hisfamily often visited.

                  One Sunday morning, the woman got up early to take a long walk. After a brisk five-mile hike,she decided to treat herself to a double-dip chocolate ice cream cone.

                  She hopped in the car, drove to the center of the village and went straight to the combination bakery/ice cream parlor.

                  There was only one other patron in the store:
                  Paul Newman, sitting at the counter having a doughnut and coffee.

                  The woman's heart skipped a beat as her eyes made contact with those famous baby-blue eyes.

                  The actor nodded graciously and the star struck woman smiled demurely.

                  Pull yourself together! She chides herself. You're a happily married woman with three children,you're forty-five years old, not a teenager!

                  The clerk filled her order and she took the double-dip chocolate ice cream cone in one hand and her change in the other. Then she went out the door, avoiding even a glance in Paul Newman's direction.

                  When she reached her car, she realized that she had a handful of change but her other hand was empty. Where's my ice cream cone? Did I leave it in the store? Back into the shop she went, expecting to see the cone still in the clerk's hand or in a holder on the counter or something! No ice cream cone was in sight..

                  With that, she happened to look over at Paul Newman.

                  His face broke into his familiar,warm,friendly grin and he said to the woman,

                  'You put it in your purse.'

                    That's a great story! I hope he got some entertainment out of a lifetime of interactions like that.

                    Condolences to his family. He obviously passed on his philanthropic spirit to his children.

                      Godspeede Mr. Newman. You are a class act. This man was married to his wife for 50 years. When someone wanted him to stray he said, "I have a steak at home, why would I go out for hamburger".

                      More women and men could learn a lesson from this lovely fellow. Call me old fashioned.

                      A true gentleman.

                        We've removed the initial completely inappropriate comment from this thread and are addressing the poster accordingly.

                        While we understand some of the reaction to that statement, we've removed the resulting political and other commentary made in response in order to refocus the thread. Back to the main topic.

                          Paul Newman was a wonderful human being who loved his family, and helped many people in his extended human family all over the world. He died after a long busy life doing what he loved and died with family and friends around him, and if it's true that you aren't actually gone as long as you are remembered then he will live forever in his movies, through the charities he supported, and in the hearts of many. God Speed.

                            What a first class gentlemen. One of the greats this world has known. It is so sad to hear of his passing, but what a valuable legacy he has left behind. Enjoy your eternal rest Mr. Newman.

                                  We raced in the same class that Paul did, back in the 80's. He was always a nice guy and a good driver, and it sure brightened up the false grid to have Paul Newman walking around!

                                  I always admired the grace with which he lived his life and admired that he was able to be a normal guy in spite of his film success. He was definately an asset to many, many lives.

                                    yes, a great horse show dad..

                                    I remember a tv sports/news clip of a show in Madison Sq Garden back in the 70s or 80s when a rider fell off her horse at a fence. Gasp from the crowd as she lay still and then lickety-split, over the rail (probably from the box seats) jumps a man who races to kneel at her side..

                                    Commentator identified the man as Paul Newman and that black-and-white image of a concerned father from decades ago was the first thing that popped into my mind when I heard he had passed away..
