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 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.
                Hahaha! What inconsistency? No I just don't like people who consistently lie and embellish to garner attention.

                  Oh..I thought you just hated it when you were continually caught both here and on TROT and it was printed for all to see.

                  Do not be so hard on yourself. You don't need to be self hating even tho you have a unique take on the truth and continually try to garner attention. Look at your post today...trying to "stir the empty pot"

                  No longer able to purchase Sofia red win from Bulgaria so am drinking Swallowtail from Romania. Couple it with some slices of Drunken Goat..a specialty cheese from Spain and it creates a diversion to my choking after reading your post.

                  Post away...by the end of this bottle I won't remember who you are or what you are posting..nor will I be able to type.

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

                          The OP co-opted the derogatory "tin foil hatters", obviously attempting irony/sarcasm in the title of the thread, but of course the folks on the other side of the issue have used it in its real meaning continually throughout the thread (even acronym-izing it lol) to identify, marginalize and disparage anyone who doesn't believe as they do. It is a time-worn tactic; attach a mocking, snide, loaded nickname to a group of people, so that others may become wary of supporting them, and so that you don't have to actually address whatever that group has to say

                                Yes, it is a "time-worn tactic" such as all of the names I was called by the pro-carriage posters on the NYC Carriage Horse thread. I was asked by the mods not to repeat them !

                                  Caught with what exactly? You ARE drunk. I've NEVER lied about anything on trot or anywhere else for that matter. I am what I am. You OTOH are exactly what is wrong in this culture like so many others, a wannabe fake. "If you can dream. And not let dreams be your master." Sage advice from good 'ol Rudyard.

                                    "Radical Animal Rights Activist" . Certainly not a term coined by anyone around here. Media moniker. However I think to borrow from the arts "WALKERS" is much much more appropriate.
                                    "I would not beleive her if her tongue came notorized"

                                    • To be radical or an activist has a positive connotation. Animal rights - depends on one's upbringing I suppose, but generally there is an implied "They go too far" taste attached to the RARA label.

                                      Tin foil Hatters on the other hand have no redeeming meaning as they are considered to be reacting to fantastic misinterpretations of non-existent problems, so misguided, ignorant and incapable of reasoning.

                                      Applying the Tin foil Hatters label is completely disparaging and meant only to insult - when one knows there is a true problem it is thus only used for effect.

                                      Most name calling is simply to draw a line around US as opposed to THEM and tends to break down communication for those reacting to verbal slams.


                                      When one is called something often enough in a disparaging manner, sometimes the term becomes an IN thing to use among like-thinking people who have been labeled in with the class -think the "N" word among young adult Black persons...

                                        I guarantee you I have never used that, if it is ok or not.
                                        It doesn't sound right to me, but then, I don't have a good ear for English.
                                        At most I have used AR, after writing out several times in a post "animal rights extremists", used then as short hand.

                                        I have read some very insulting things others have posted, some the Moderator wisely edited, that really were over the top.

                                          Now, I have read some you called others that was very insulting, that was edited.
                                          That there is a bit out of line also, I think, falling into personal insults.

                                          Just remember, if you feel insulted, say so, but don't do it by insulting back, that is not ok and here, against the rules anyway.
