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!

            Not going into characterizing the sides, but one works with things as they are, the other is demanding the impossible.

            There is always the chance somebody else has not heard the two sides of the issue.

              I will be the first to admit I know very little about the whole thing, I will never claim to truly know.
              I'd get out of the middle if I were you.
              Getting knocked through the fence a few times is not good for your well being.

              I give you cliff notes:
              Slaughter ain't pretty. Because it's killing stuff.
              It can't be 100%, because we are dealing with humans and animals.
              Some humans are bad.


              Enter pro ban:
              Ban everything, consequences be damned.
              Although nothing including humans can ever be 100%, they happily claim abuse rates are 100%. Even if it defies logic.
              Their ideas have profound impact on the industry, not just the area they are looking at.
              You tell them that, you are <insert term of choice>

              The Pro slaughter/anti ban stance affects them not one bit on the other hand.
              There is not a one person radical pro slaughter to demand they go out and shoot and butcher their little Dobbins.

              Pro ban/anti slaughter do have rather high handed expectations as to what a person is to do with their horse. (but Lord have mercy on you, should you ask if they actually have the funds themselves to do as they preach!)
              Some are in blatant disregard to local laws or in the face of practicality.

                    No, actually I wasn't being snarky. I was wondering. And I agree it's like watching a car wreck in slow motion.

                      • Socialism? We could only hope. We are headed for fascism and oligarchy. It's already under way while we continue to sleep.

                        Meanwhile I want to stop the idiots that foolishly believe that they too can be unregulated psychopath's, all in the name of making a buck. That measly buck won't help them anyway when the shit hits the fan.

                        • Pfttt...That's not going to last. They're cutting while I'm typing. Those folks who rely on government, are then going to come after my middle class "stuff" loaded with weaponry to gills. While the rich, who paid for our government, are ROFL(T)AO sailing their Yachts to the Caymans. Hell it's going on now, been going on longer than you think.

                          ETA All the while our poor/middle class kids are going to war to protect their special interests.

                          When is the last time YOU bought a Senate vote?

                          Meanwhile we are such idiots we are arguing about horse slaughter, gun rights, and wolf hunting.

                          Ack! I apologize. Everything is wonderful our future is bright. There is no climate change, the rich aren't controlling our country and fracking is awesome! Yay! Oops forgot...lets slaughter horses once again using an old cattle facility, that sucked 7 years ago. YAY!

                            What do these links have to do with equines going to auction and or to slaughter?

                            I notice several posts "train wrecks" and these words are usually inserted about the time a group of you complain to the moderator that your feelins, emotions or what ever are under seize and you want the "topic" closed.

                            The HSUS TWH video went to law enforcement when it was given to them by the researchers for Diane Sawyer. ONE YEAR AFTER.

                            It was released to work with their big fund raiser.

                            Any videos resulting in closed U.S.A. plants had to be seven years or older.
                            When there is abuse it should be dealt with. However not by destroying the whole industry as you and your group are prone to do.

                                  And, like the French Revolution, when the common folk were able to take it out on the "royals" they were brutal. How about the Spanish revolution where they hung the great grandson of Christopher Columbus and also hung his Arabian Horse Stallion as a sign of the fall of the aristocracy.

                                  It was then...all about dictating YOUR will on others...banning those from a legal activity. Interesting..Pro slaughter don't ask that your groups and all Vegans be banned for trumped up chemical infusions and opinions, rather than facts.

                                  Where everything is done by a Presidential Order rather than through process by those elected (right or wrong) to represent the "common folk"..then a feeling of entitlement emerges..and that is when groups such as HSUS and PeTA and defence leagues for animals come into play.

                                  Study history.

                                  • Those elected? The people don't even understand who/what/how they are electing. "Those elected" are the very rich, were either lobbyists before or become lobbyists after. History, IS repeating itself, is going exponential right after the stock market bubble bursts. Human's must really suck at learning from mistakes.

                                    Just like the horse slaughter facility in NM. See how that works.

                                    • Yea whatever like your "reasoning" is so great.
                                      I thought TG's % was higher than 95 - my point being that whatever the animal we should be trying our best to be totally perfect. Yes I do actually realize that's impossible but it should be a goal nonetheless.
                                      Honestly?? I haven't heard myself really screaming about anything.....You?? Yep I hear you screaming.

                                      Temple Grandin only requires that 95% of horses be rendered insensible after the bolt gun or firearm. So, you think your slaughter goddess is wrong?
                                      And for all the screaming your sisterhood has been doing about the wild mustangs, look at Temple's 14th requirement for humane horse slaughter:
                                      14.If wild horses (mustangs) are being slaughtered, handlers should be trained in the principles of flight zone and point of balance. If a horse rears, handlers should be trained to back up and get out of it's flight zone. The installation of solid sides on the chute (race) is recommended. Understanding the point of balance will also facilitate handling tame horses.
                                      Most of you seem to be caught in some sort of timewarp which has left your reasoning and talking points in the 1980s.
                                      The problem with political jokes is that they get elected.
