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!

  • It seems odd to me to ask for the thread to be closed. Unless you feel it puts IZ in some exposure.

    People choose to bare their deepest troubles and faults and expose themselves to some harsh criticisms and comments and willingly to enter the ring of their own accord every day, every where. Anonymous or not. SUre it rises from a weakness with in us - but who has not been weak? And cried out for help?

    IMO it seems was done to good cause here. She seems to have placed some nice horses nicely. And maybe she too will be in a better place.

    Not an easy thing to do.

      • It seems that FB page is suddenly members only? Odd for a page that is solely for selling horses.
        I've read through this thread and it certainly set off my "Things that make you go Hmmmm...." senses.

        Carry on.

        • Alrighty, Leo, and anyone else who may have questions about his post.

          I commented on the FB sale page because the person who posted the horse didn't bother to post a price, or any information. I LOVE stallions- but they are so difficult to sell, or place- especially if they have no credentials. As an advocate for the breed for over 40 years, yes, I did encourage her to give some information on the horse she was apparently trying to sell. Was I looking for a horse? Are you kidding?

          If you believe dear Leo, you should also know that I could load my farm up with freebies, right now. As I am trying desperately to rehome what I have into the best possible places, why in the hell would I do anything so ridiculous?

          My life is still ridiculously challenging, for me at least. I am absolutely indebted to each and every one of you who has reached out, and offered support and good thoughts.

          But Leo? Pullleeezzee. Leo, when you have been at it as long as I have, and accomplished anything that actually is verifiable, and not just your useless babble, we can talk. Until then, you keep going with your lies and inuendo. You cannot offer a first person account, and you are a filthy gossip.

          • Bravo, well-said Iz. I was glad you posted on the FB page. I really liked the Longshadow breeding program. That is a nice horse, and you are right in saying that more information needed to be provided.
            Now that some of your physical symptoms have been dealt with, I hope that means you can find ways to resolve some of the other issues. Have you thought of relocating? I just read that USEF is hiring:

              Julie

              I do have a long career in breeding horses and I can verify my involvement, who I have shown and what my breeding has accomplished. It is all there for individuals with AHA DATA to see. I am also very well known by many as I did show Arabians and Afghan Hounds in excess of 40 years..

              THAT is verifiable.

              Also what is verificable is my involvement with ASB's. Haven't produced much however a few have been shown..

              Gossip...that requires slinking around with private little emails and engaging in character assignation. I put in print any concerns I have...the light of day usually proves them right, or wrong.

              When I announced I sold a colt to China..it was amazing that "the rumor" was I sent him to slaughter...funny where that one came from along with you accusing a well respected breeder of sending to slaughter and when I asked you to put it in print...you stated... "Are you crazy..I don't have the money to be sued"

              If a statement is "the truth" then one does not worry about a law suit

              I rarely go onto Facebook as my dial up connection freezes. The only way I even knew you posted about the stallion was a COTH member sent me a message as they came across it.

              You, Julie, have attacked others for much less. I believe you do say something to the importance of APPEARANCE to justify your attacks on so many others.

              For you to come back on COTH and continue to have your bump up to advertise yet another horse you want to sell...to my knowledge..would have been actionable by the moderators.

              Unlike others, I have never complained to moderators about your "appearance" to be using this forum as your personal fund raiser.

              As was pointed out to me by a lady I respect....It is more important that your horses find homes...over what is "proper" for the forum protocol.

              You have accomplished much to promote the diversification of the ASB and you have received much attention for your ongoing work. You deserve it.

              You do not need to justify a failed relationship to anyone..and I was saddened to read your plea to your supporters to quit phoning your ex with accusations.

              I congratulate you one your last paragraph however. Nice to see you are still up to par with your "I am a victim and you are a filthy no account gossip"

              This is classic Julie and I now know you are on the road to complete recovery.

                  .
                  Leo, you have just defined gossip, and then carried it out.

                  And, if I had offered one of these horses "for sale", I'd appreciate it if you would also verify that, rather than simply, once again, making false accusations.

                  I am feeling better physically, but I have to credit the COTHers who stepped up to help me with a whole lot of credit.

                  You? Not so much.

                  • Let's redirect any further horse rehoming back to the Giveaways forum with other threads of that kind. We're going to close this thread as it's getting contentious and the OP undoubtedly has many contacts she can reach out to privately now if necessary. Feel free to update everyone during the next time the OT forum is open.

                    Best wishes,
