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!

  • Alagirl, who has claimed kinship to PETA and HSUS (other than as sarcasm)? I've seen people accused of it, but no one claiming it.

    The anti posters seem to be concerned about animal welfare, not animal rights.

      It is not so.

        That is an important difference some seem to muddle repeatedly.
        And this has nothing to do with my post. I said nothing about banning slaughter. I was addressing cruelty and being against that. And how anyone who is against cruelty is labeled a RARA, a member of PETA, HSUS, etc by you.

        Yet, you said in a previous post you were against cruelty. Using your thought processes, this make you a RARA, a member of PETA, HSUS, etc.

          Why do you think everyone who objects to inhumane treatment is really relaying secret messages from PETA, HSUS, RARA's, etc?
          That is far out, a real wild leap of imagination.
          I don't think anyone has gone there, "secret messages", indeed.

          Then, I tend to scan over some that is posted, that is a bit out there and maybe someone posted that?

          • I have only a handful of people on my ignore list. Those who do not put anyone on ignore have stated that while they might generally disagree with a poster, they still want to see what is being said.

            This assumes that something might, possibly, be said by that poster that has merit and deserves a response.

            Perhaps the time has come to acknowledge that some posters add NOTHING to the discussion. And if you would all put them on ignore, or at least stop responding to and quoting them so those of us who have had them on ignore for years don't have to read their BS, things would maybe go a little more smoothly here?

            Just a thought.

              You may not have noticed, surprising as that may be, but all these debates are about the drive to ban slaughter, nothing more or less.

              No one here on the anti's side is talking about any other than why slaughter should be banned.
              I have stated time and again that I don't think to ban slaughter is sensible.

              Surprised you are not aware of that.

              • Okay, more clear, IT is animal welfare, animals rights are not correct. Animals do not have rights. But we have the duty to see that all animals under our care are treated as humanely as possible. So if that is a extremist comment, I guess the people on here that are referring to others as extremist maybe are not really horsemen or women at all. Just a thought.
                So far In all these threads, I have not seen anyone that is a radical extremist. And seriously Bluey, Are you this obtuse in real life?

                SERIOUSLY.. This is UTTER BS other than one or two people most have said nothing about banning, only making it more humane. If you really think that you are reading what you want and ignoring most everyone else's posts.
                No one here on the anti's side is talking about any other than why slaughter should be banned.

                    There you are wrong, I don't have any "cause" I follow.
                    Is those intent on banning slaughter or else that "follow their cause".

                      Yes, welfare.

                      The conundrum for me is if not for the extremist's undercover videos, none of the abuses would be known of much less prosecuted.

                      And who knows, maybe some of these videoing extremists got to be extremists by being pushed back by a legal system that is too busy to investigate and an industry that is full of excuses. No one can dispute the cruelty shown on the TWH Tapes

                      Seems rather than focusing efforts on shutting down extremists, reasonable people and bureaucracies could accomplish more by directing their efforts to better monitor these facilities and beef up penalties. Or even produce rewards for showing good performance or developing good programs that promote a safe humane environment for both the animals and humans that work in slaughter environments.

                      I think that is the discussion most people on COTH want to have: what can we do better.

                          Every time that is proposed the outcry is no, there is no good in slaughter.
                          When mentioned that we know different, well, you see what happens, all that posting to show how horrible slaughter is, again, the abuse and mismanagement card to call for "ban horse slaughter".
                          And they call me hardheaded?

                          I don't care if we have or not slaughter, but think that a ban just doesn't make sense with what I know.

                                    I don't think there is a requirement for a certain IQ number to sign up as a poster on COTH, in fact, I am sure there is not one, some of what is posted a clear example of that.

                                    Trying to get back on topic, once the first article was out, have they published any more about what happened to this horse?

                                    It would be interesting to know what the canadian slaughter plants do when any horse, for any reason, may be put on hold and why that was not so here.

                                        Or did we come to that conclusion via instances where the harm of ingesting rat poison was obvious enough without a large subject group, a large placebo group and various dosage levels of rat poison being administered to humans to make it clear it was a bad idea? Extrapolation [not a study] of 'if it does ___ to rats, it will do ___ to humans'?
                                        Total side point here, but one of the most common rat poisons is an anti-coagulant taken by many humans (Warfarin or Coumadin -- same thing, different modes of administration.) And the risks are known -- you bleed more if you get hurt, you have a greater chance of having an aneurysm, etc.

                                        (My mom started taking Coumadin after having a pulmonary embolism -- a blood clot in the lungs -- for which she was given IV Warfarin while in hospital. Less than a year later, she had a brain aneurysm which was almost certainly related to the Coumadin, and she died.)
                                        You have to have experiences to gain experience.

                                        • And, hm, Bluey has yet to address my question, which is the same one asked by several others here. Too busy trying to "win" I guess...
