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!

    oh, come on, you know how this works:
    controversial Topic is posted
    new members show up
    the 'accused' person appears

    hilarity ensues.

    I am just waiting for that other group to show.
    and the intoxicated house guests.....

      Aber...where the heck have you been. You are missing all the talk action

      Nothing left to attack me on.

      As I don't have the luxury of volunteer staff I do it myself or pay to get the job completed. I am no different than other horse owners or breeders.

      Nothin the matter with my stories Greenie. I mean GG

      Lets see how "your" truth holds up under scrutiny.

      Judging by the comments I receive (definitely not thru pm as they are NEVER private) I am happy that information is getting out there.

      Suggestion: Next time...look that gift horse in the mouth.

        I would have hoped you would have given it to G.G.

        However DEFHR will be able to use this to further their cause and falsify information for AC and the police.

        I am sure you don't have a horse..or over one so you really don't believe "they will be coming for you"

        Remember that proverb...

          This my friend is proof enough that you have NO clue of what you are talking about.
          You really need a better research department.

          Or are you trying to write fiction for a movie?

            We already know HSUS has a major interest in a charity telemarketing company. That is why I asked if they used the HSUS company or one of the independents.

            I was also asking if the split was 80/20. It is some many of the charities...20% is better than nothing

            As for the other comment...1 million at 25$. each?..can you spell
            S A R C A S M?

            G.G. I tried..sorry you lost that 25$ donation to
            DEFHR..maybe she will make one out to you next month..

            • I need a new boneless chicken breast recipe...anyone have something new and different? To keep it horse related, must be fast and easy....so I have time for the horses.

                Quit posting and learn how to use google and I am sure you will find something not too challenging

                • Maybe Margarita chicken, or chicken in wine sauce.


                  • You aren't going to feed that chicken to the troll, are you?

                      Since you seem to want to support the HSUS, be sure your chicken is Tyson.
                      I heard the HSUS bought stock in them.
                      While their income is basically donated money, they can spend it where they want.


                      • I support HSUS but I buy local, Claxton chicken. Does that make me a traitor? Nope. HSUS serves a purpose to publicize animal abuse. Does the country where you were born, Bluey, have animal rescue groups?

                          that explains so much.

                          And while I don't know where Bluey hails from....I am pretty sure there are animal rescue groups.

                          And animal rights people...After all, PETA/HSUS are international.

                            All I will say, why would anyone that supposedly has animals and so agrees that humans can and should have and use them, support organizations that are trying to eliminate all uses of animals by humans?

                            No, don't say "but the HSUS puts on such a good front about how much they care for animals and I like that".

                            I don't think you may know who the HSUS is.
                            Here is one of many, many that know:


                            Any one that cares for animal welfare, not follows animal rights groups, will help animals best by supporting true animal welfare groups and their local shelters.

                            • That's me, I love HSUS. What else do they have partial ownership of...I'll buy everything I can.

                              Bluey, not everything is a conspiracy. Really.

                              Since it can't be chicken, how about a nice tofu recipe. I'll bet PETA owns a tofu processing center.


                              • Actually Bluey, I don't buy a lot of chicken, if I do it's antibiotic free. Free range eggs and Laura's Lean Beef. Bet the whole lot of them is owned by HSUS. Heck, maybe HSUS owns Kroger.


                                • I'm not buying a lot of spineless Canadian weasel, but I hear it goes well with a lot of wine.

                                    Amazing. Everything comes down to childish name calling i.e. weasel, troll etc.

                                    And yet..where it your outrage regarding HSUS conspiring to committ FRAUD.

                                    Where is your outrage that HSUS conducted the seizure AS A TRAINING OPPORTUNITY for their Equine division.

                                    Where is your outrage that they, and their partner DEFHR continually attempt to created "underground" laws that will severely impede equine ownership

                                    Look at the circus case which has not resulted in RICO charges and a major lawsuit as they PAID an individual $147,000.00 to LIE on the stand and say the circus animals were tortured.

                                    Of course, Tangle is right in there from Maryland home of the HSUS .

                                    Remember when you had your agent start up the Canadian Humane Society and run it from Maryland and the money was filtered to the HSUS ..The director was deported back to the U.S. and he was charged with conspircy to defraud and didn't he get arrested for child molestation? Before he died. On a bright side...he was a Vegan

                                    No one has disputed these allegations as they know there is a paper trial. They know its not over until the fat lady sings and she is just warming up.

                                    I noticed the number of views is well over 7000. Of course many many are repeats however many are also new. I am hearing from them and nope...not on PM...it is easy to find me and my email address...

                                    European equestrians are definitely on the right track. Already the jumper crowd are seeing attempts to restrict competitions. Endurance riders are now coming under assault. The HSUS sponsored divisions are trying to make it so a horse has access to water 24/7 and when they have had the obvious pointed out...that would eliminate ALL riding..they receive the "smile".

                                    On a bright note...it is the child in many of the posters here who want to strike out at me. So they pretend to like "HSUS". I enjoy reading their child like resonses.

                                    I would sure be interested in a COTH poll that asked yes or no

                                    Do you support HSUS.

                                    No..yes but...maybe...I think they look good.etc--just yes or no

                                    North Americans have not suffered loss of rights, property and life in the manner that Europeans did during the 2nd World War. Those of us who lost relatives or had survivors from concentration camps and that lost our homes and property and our history understand the essence of evil.

                                    We also understand that to stand blindly by the side and say..It won't happen...just doesn't work.

                                    There are existing laws that can and should be enforced. There are laws that can also be increased or changed in a legal manner. I do not want HSUS and or DEFHR and their affiliates making laws for an industry that I am involved in.

                                      So take a deep breath, gather your thoughts, and start one.

                                      It would make a lot more sense than this thread's rambling stream of consciousness, where you claim a Maryland horse rescue spends too much money, frames circuses, runs animal control in California, sets laws, something about chickens, something about Canada and runs concentration camps during World War II.

                                      If you could lay off the interwoven conspiracy theories, and stick to one topic at a time you'd sound more like an activist, and less like a paranoid schizophrenic.

                                        So much to say about the corruption within HSUS and its affiliates.

                                        Two hands...two thoughts ..typing...thank you for putting a name to it.

                                        I will let the other thread start a poll.

                                        Readers have enough information from this thread in a couple of areas to make up their own minds as to who they will support, or not.
