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!

  • Tin Foil Hatters Unite. More animal rights attacks

    this is from researcher Liz at Black Horse

    "AB 1117 gives full authority to humane and peace officers to seize and destroy animals without a warrant."

    NaturalNews) If you live in California and own pets or livestock, you could soon be criminalized as an animal abuser for things like letting your livestock roam on pasture or transferring ownership of rare-breed animals in a parking lot. Two new laws recently passed under the auspices of animal protection actually threaten to eliminate animal ownership throughout the state, as they re-categorize normal animal rearing methods as acts of abuse worthy of criminal fines and unwarranted seizure of said animals.

    The bills are AB 1117 and SB 917, and they were passed under a shroud of secrecy. Those who knew about the bills were told they would protect animals from abuse. But upon closer investigation, AB 1117 and SB 917 were clearly designed to incriminate animal ownership and discourage livestock farming. SB 917, as it turns out, makes it a crime to both sell and give away animals on any street, highway, public right-of-way, parking lot, carnival or boardwalk, while AB 1117 gives full authority to humane and peace officers to seize and destroy animals without a warrant.

    Together, the two bills essentially give control to the state government to steal animals from people accused of animal abuse, even if no evidence exists to prove that animal abuse actually took place. Worse, the tenets of the two laws are so loosely defined, with no clear intent as to what constitutes "abuse" by definition, that virtually anyone who becomes a target of the state could lose their pets or livestock with a simple accusation of abuse.

    "The California law, burying the wording between words about beating and torture, defines normal activities with animals as abuse," explains Food Freedom News. "And it refers to no standard of what is normal in raising animals, and requires no proof that any animal has been harmed. [Lawmakers have] figured out a way to turn raising animals outside on grass -- the ideal life for those animals and their then producing the healthiest food -- into a felony. And they've done it under the aegis of protecting animals."

    Many US states now pushing laws to criminalize animal ownership

    Such lunacy is not reserved to California, sadly, as numerous other U.S. states are pushing their own laws that would essentially criminalize animal ownership. As we reported back in 2012, the state of Michigan passed a not-so-cleverly disguised "Invasive Species Order" (ISO) that reclassified most rare-breed pig breeds as "feral," and thus illegal. Beginning last April, the state actually went around with SWAT teams raiding local farms and shooting these rare-breed species (http://www.naturalne... ... eedom.html).

    And back in 2011, Illinois lawmakers tried to push House Bill 1166, which would have required pet owners to actually get a state-issued permit if they wished to possess more than six animals as pets. Included in this pet category, as explained in a Pet Industry Joint Advisory Council (PIJAC) report, were the usual cats and dogs, as well as fish. Thousands of Illinois residents with even one fish tank of fish, in other words, would have become criminals overnight (http://www.pijac.org).

    Such madness is continually predicated on "protecting the animals," which is similar to the current gun control madness that is draped in "protecting the children." In both cases, bureaucrats are attempting to bypass individuals' human and constitutional rights by injecting an emotional charge into their plea. And unless Americans start vehemently opposing such abuse as it creeps to the surface, it will only continue to intensify until all our freedoms are lost.

    I read through the bill quickly and couldn't find exactly where it said that. Could you help me out, maybe cut & paste where it says that part about letting livestock roam on pasture is criminal?

    I see the part about not needing a warrant to euthanize (they simply say "kill") animals that are crippled, sick, etc. if the owner can't be found immediately. They include "in fields". Honestly, if an animal is suffering greatly and an owner can't be found, I'd have to say most of the time this is a good policy. This is why it's good to have emergency numbers posted so someone can be contacted who can make an informed decision for your animals.

    But I didn't really read through word for word very closely, so again if you can point me to the part where I need to get my hat ready I will

    But seriously, we look at states like NY and CA and think, well, they're crazy (no offense, it's not all of ya, but the ratios are bad) but we can't assume it's just going to stay that way.

        Yes please. Because if the bills are as reported by Fairfax, they are an obvious and blatant violation of the Federal Constitution, a violation of due process.

              I just read the amendment changes to AB 1117 and I did not read of any taking. The changes relate to injured animals.

              I read the amendment not the interpretation by other person.

                  I took this from Black Horse AS IS. You can research on your own as to the bills. Liz is well known for her accuracy in research so I am willing to take what she says until it is absolutely proven wrong

                      You posted it Fairfax, you should have done the research first. Otherwise, you're just a fear monger posting possibly inaccurate information.

                        Are you saying you copy/pasted a post by someone else posted on another board to COTH?
                        I thought that was verboten here at COTH?

                              AB 1117 is already law. Likely what is being used to seize JB horses.

                                I am going to adderess a group of you here

                                You NEVER start a thread. You never appearto read anything except COTH and maybe one other forum as your attacks on everyone are consistent in their style and wordage.

                                You would never invent the wheel or anything. BUT you would be busy stating why it doesn't work...without even trying

                                Exchanging from another forum...if that is not okay../then take it down.

                                Laura...I don't believe I have EVER read any post from you that demonstrated YOU had ever done any research. All I read is you blah blah blah...prove it prove it. I remember providing you with a link on anothger thread and you just "dropped the issue" as it verified what I had stated. About 15 more pages and I referred to the same point and you ... again...demanded proof...you don't even bother to read anything.

                                Coanteen...thank you for posting with your typical sarcasm. I have worked with lLiz and I have also watched her work on other projects. To those of us who actually DO try and make a difference or at least alert people...we tend to know each other. I have many contacts from AQHA, TB, Morgan, Arab, ASB Paint, Pinto, Appy who also work on similar concerns as they affect their breed. Maybe if you did something rather than just blast away...tou too could make a difference

                                And Last...if you don't like what I post...don't read...if you do..and post...be prepared to receive return fire.

                                      Why would I go to another forum, particularly to find a post sandwiched between garbage about The evil unChristian Obama, and more Benghazi gobbledegook ...even with your generous 'routing' [have you heard of a link?] to read what you apparently copied/pasted rather than go look at the actual bill and see for myself,... and why post someone elses digestion of the info rather than your own review and consideration? Or if Liz is the one with the insight who's read the bill, why not ask her to post it here?
