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!

      Errrm...as hyperbolically cray as I find the OP, nobody was "played" (unless they failed to read). The OP does clearly state that both laws have already passed, so not sure what you're getting at.

              Can you define 'RARA's as you used it above where I bolded, cause I think I may be confused who exactly you are referring to there.
              Maybe for clarity's sake, instead of using the term RARA we could be specific?
              Yes, I know you have been following and supporting, which is why I said that - if you remember, we have even had a few PMs

              The RARAs are the same cast of characters we still have: The Coalition to Ban Horse-Drawn Carriages (Forel's group), PETA, HSUS, Win Animal Rights (WAR), and NYCLASS (Nislick's group). (At least two dozen lesser and not necessarily local RARA groups were exhorted to sign on, mainly by Forel, and did, but they were/are of little consequence)

              Like I said, the ASPCA had to stand down somewhat for the reasons I gave. But that didn't stop their $$$ and political arm, NYCLASS, from moving ahead against us.

                Guess you are still bitter over the exposure of your conflicting posts.

                You would do well, Mary, to read. There is a lot of interesting information coming out from interpretation to application.

                I am learning a lot and I did not think I had any points of value to make.

                I have noticed, a poster or two is doing the same to others here, that they have done to me on other threads. Demand sources,,,,then not bother to read them.

                  So per Baldstockings reading of the bill, the first sentence of the OP is not accurate?
                  "AB 1117 gives full authority to humane and peace officers to seize and destroy animals without a warrant."

                  Sorry, I tried to quote and lost the OP statement...

                  http://law.onecle.com/california/penal/597.1.html

                  http://www.leginfo.ca.gov/pub/11-12/...ntroduced.html

                  Where an animal is perceived to be abandoned, no warrant is needed; agent may seize and decide whether to euth or not.

                  The seizing agent is required to deliver /conspicuously post a NOTICE within 48 hrs excluding weekends or holidays that contains...

                  (C) The authority and purpose for the seizure, or impoundment,
                  including the time, place, and circumstances under which the animal
                  was seized. (this is not a warrant, no judge involved)

                  ...
                  (g) Where the need for immediate seizure is not present and prior
                  to the commencement of any criminal proceedings authorized by this
                  section, the agency shall provide the owner or keeper of the animal,
                  if known or ascertainable after reasonable investigation, with the
                  opportunity for a hearing prior to any seizure or impoundment

                  Warrants are for arrests of humans. No warrant is needed to seize an animal if the agent perceives emergency need.


                  The amendments to the law REQUIRE owners to foot bills for all sezures where hearing by the agency finds in the agency's favor.
                  Where there is finding in the agency's favor, animals are forfeited.

                  On subsequent CONVICTION or GUILTY on related criminal charges, it is MANDATORY that a 5yr for misdemeanor, 10 yr for felony separation from all animals is part of the sentence - can't visit people with animals, either.

                  Except at judge's discretion in the case of a livestock business that is one's livelihood.

                    An officer may decide without even a phone consult with a vet to euthanize a 'sick' non-canine /non-feline animal on the spot. No owner recourse.


                    So, if you walk your dog on leash and decide to step into a no dogs grocery to buy a bottle of water for him, leaving him tied to a bike rack...
                    Have you abandoned the dog? -it is in a public area.
                    Failed to provide shelter and water? - wasn't in the shade (day is cool, mind you)and obviously no water if you are going to buy it.
                    Created a hazard to the public? Doggie is tied to a bike rack and unattended; someone could be frightened, trip on the leash, dog could block pedestrians...

                    Right there is a possible seizure case depending on the sanity of the agent involved.
                    Note that seizure and finding the owner does not mean your animal is released to you then and there.
                    Nope.

                    Goes to the vet for eval and med treatment (you think doggie won't be a bit stressed out?), then to the shelter where, if you can prove to the people who seized doggie in the first place you are not abusive or neglectful you may be able to pay up ($500+ for time, vet and board I'm thinking, plus the fine for abandonment ($ ??) and retrieve your dog.
                    With no recourse.

                    Have a nice day.
                    Right there is a possible seizure case depending on the sanity of the agent involved.?
                    Good lord what kind of animal control officer would impound based on that scenario, Homer Simpson? Barney Fife?
                    I realize that common sense is lacking these days but it's a stretch to think a trained officer would impound a dog in your scenario.

                      Only when you are living in a delusional world. I cannot believe the tin foil hat brigade think that animal regulations are all out to remove your pets and horses. Now that is delusional.

                            Where did I ever say "that talking to me is VERY similar to talking with Jill"? I think you might want to educate yourself before babbling incoherently on this board.

                            Jill Burnell had several horses seized from her run down facility. One is at UC Davis being treated. Time to function in the real world and accept that government agencies need to deal with abuse and neglect and that the real world needs to find solutions and not just babble about conspiracy theories.

                              I am sure you read the thread where UC Davis was attemtping to make their minimal standards law without going through the legislature.

                              As for AC training. Please refer to the case in New Jersey where the horse owner printed an article where AC and Police were trained to lie about their evaulations with the statement that it could always be corrected later. The aim was to seize the animal/s.

                              Most AC have minimal training and also most vets only have the introduction to equines which is a 3 month course. And, HSUS sponsors many vets by paying for their education.

It's useful around the kitchen, recyclable, and relatively inexpensive. Plus, WTH does it have to do with animal rights?

                                    • Ok. I have to ask. What is the reference to "tin foil hats" mean. So many threads using this, and frankly I cannot figure it out.

                                      I remember back in the '50's there was a cartoon called Tom Terrific and he wore what looked like an upside down funnell on his head. Is it some sort of off shoot of that?

                                      I seem to be the only one that doesn't get it. But I'm serious--what does it mean???

                                      • oooh, I know the a nswer to this one! Sometimes crazy people think that they have to wear hats made out of tinfoil to keep the government/aliens/what have you from controlling their thoughts.
                                        What's wrong with you?? Your cheese done slid off its cracker?!?!

                                          it is a reference to those who believe the government/space aliens or whomever are spying on them and to keep themselves safe they fashion a head covering from tinfoil to block the brainwave transmission.

                                          It has become a popular term among those who try to point out where certain groups are digging and chipping away at our lifestyle.
