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!

  • Where are the PETA ten commandments for taking in dogs and cats and finding them good homes?
    1. Drive around the corner and stop the van and hold the dog down while you inject lethal chemicals into its vein and keep holding it down.
    2. Turn your eyes away from their pleading eyes asking the question "why are you doing this."
    3. Dump the dead dog in the garbage can lined with black garbage bags.
    4. Pick up your next victim, assuring the owner that their contribution will provide the dog food and shelter until you find him a home, and repeat steps 1 thru four until your garbage can is full or starting to stink.
    5. Drive into an alley behind stores and find a half-empty dumpster and toss the bag of dogs in it. http://www.petakillsanimals.com/images/petatrial6.png
    6. If out in a residential area where there are no stores, just use an alleyway. Be sure to watch for cops and toss the dead dogs out on the ground.
    7. If you run out of dogs to kill, go to the Animal Shelter and say you are adopting them, then go kill them.
    8. All of the above items were submitted as evidence in a trial in Virginia.

    BUT PETA, in response to outcries and billboards that have been erected objecting to their treatment of dogs and cats, have reduced the numbers that they kill. In 2006 they killed 97.4% of all animals they took in, but in 2012 they only killed 89% of all animals they took in.

              While it is not going the direction you put the train on the tracks, it has been most enlightening, and to a lesser extend entertaining.

                Best thread to flush out who the real animal rights extremists are, if you were in doubt before.

                    LOL, thanx Ala. That looked more severe in print than I meant it - I was going for more of an eyeroll comment.

                    What I did notice, though, was that my on-topic responses to some of the bigger ha-ha-PETA-isn't-a-threat posters are going unanswered. Which leads me to wonder if I am making points they cannot rebut, and they are using the avalanche of off-topic posts for cover? hmmmm

                    Oh well, doesn't matter - it won't be the last PETA thread

                        Well, it has been the tried and true method of internet 'debate': when you can't refute the argument, start name calling, correct grammar and spelling and act hurt.

                        So, yes, I am inclined to believe that there really is no answer or explanation or even excuse for PETA, for what they really do, so blow smoke.....

                        • I thought it was appropriate to post the Leo quotes because he claims to have worked for PETA in previous threads. He'd be the one to talk to, he'll have the inside scoop!

                            well, they may have only killed 89%....(gosh, only?!!) but they adopted only 1% out, too...the rest they handed over to kill shelters....refusing to work with no-kill operations....that's one way to cook the books.

                              I have no idea why I typed HSUS instead of PETA. Have never worked for HSUS in any capacity at any time. Thank you for giving me an opportunity to correct that.

                              I have already explained why and for who so I will let you get back to your research.

                              Thank you for reminding me I purchased Honey Hancock..my Palomino QH mare for 13 cents per pound. She was 8 (or so they claimed)_ when I bought her and if that was the correct age then she lived to be 24..the vet however figured she was about 12-15 year old range from her teeth which gave her a longer life span.

                              While you are at it..who was the Canadianb gal who phoned the E.U. around October 12-14 and claimed she spoke with the
                              "officer" and he told her Slaughter was Done...She was just so proud when she posted here. And so she should have been...except it wasn't so..but her involvement in the Canadian Equine Defence Coalition allowed her to get away with that mistake

                              And..I think one of the comments was I spoke with her..I am assuming that would be Sue Wallis...interesting as I spoke with her briefly this morning...Her cell is listed on her site incase any of you want to give her a chat call.

                                  • When you research my 2 year stint with PETA you will find the dates and the group who paid me and why.

                                    Go back to October when I stated Slaughter was NOT banned..and check out YOUR own posts...I remember one poster sarcastically stated Did I speak with the President...meanwhile the Rara group continued to claim only THEY had the truth..funny how they disappeared into their mushroom holes when the Canadian border which was never closed for horses CONTINUED to let them in..and it was finally disclosed it was a vet from France who shut down ONE plant due to a label infraction. It too was reopened ..and the only one that had to re-open.

                                    I have had a wonderful life...gosh...Dr. Bill Roberts giving me an opportunity to go with him when he interviewed Ted Bundy...

                                    Khan-Dene Kennels was the name for the Afghan Hound Kennels. I am on a couple of Facebook groups for Afghan Hounds...even after all of these years. First one acquired was 1968..I doubt if you were even born then...

                                    Mary (Sunridge) will be able to confirm I have around 15 ASB's as it is listed for free in Data .. and I lease a couple.

                                    My accomplishments with Arabians are also documented..although not all of them (the conversion from IAHA to AHA had a few problems)...but I bred horses that produced halter and racing and performance top tens..all there..

                                    I don't have 10 uh...well you know... ten horses with no pedigrees and no use..I didn't bother to ask you about them..but just a little heads up...hoarders start with "saving" a couple and keep on acquiring..

                                    Scientology..yeah..wasn't that a doozie..well..teenager during the 60's. Vancouver was awash with dianetics and the famous reading rooms. Expensive little sidetrack..and yes they are a nasty group. That is why I have compared them to PETA and HSUS...Fanatics.

                                    Many people of my age have actually lead interesting lives. We did go "to Europe" as that was the thing to do. We moved out of home instead of living off our parents as soon as we could. There were jobs and education was affordable.

                                    Horse shows were FUN...Here is ANOTHER quote for you. My first big time show was 1958 the first year the U.S. Nationals was held at Estes Park Colorado...I was 8 years old (actually hadn't turned 8 yet) and I showed in Junior Exhibitor..not an official class)

                                    Life has presented me with opportunities..some I have taken and some I have blown...

                                    I hope you and your group can look back at your life and actually see accomplishments, With the politics now many will miss out on ever going to see the Egyptian Pyramids..so they should go to Mexico City and see the wonderful examples there.

                                    Back onto topic..I believe that is why I have my views on HSUS, PETA, The Liberation etc. I have seen much over my lifetime and I have watched in politics how groups have negotiated and then reneged and turned against their citizens.

                                    Read the volumes of writings on HSUS..and PETA...

                                    I just posted it a few days ago....PETA through Tommy Lee (ex husband of Pamela Andrson) has written to the Premiere of Alberta wanting her to shut down the chuck wagon races at the Calgary Exhibition and Stampede.

                                    Each year, they have had "one more complaint" and the BOD try and appease them. Have all of their suggestions been bad...Of Course not. For anyone who has ever seen chuck wagon races..the stove used to be dumped into a wire container and it could bounce out OR horses from another team could get caught up and break legs.

                                    But each year it is something...from 4 outriders to 2 (?) this makes no true sense..to their suggestion (ignored) that the horses go no faster than a trot). but now..they are "trying" a political route.

                                    And of course all of the PETA groupies will attend the parade in July and protest cruelty for the rodeo stock. Isn't it a shame that they (the Stampede) need so many night security agents to protect the horses, catlle, bulls etc from "accidents" and unsafe "releases"

                                    Scientology will not collapse and neither will HSUS Nor PETA..because there is just too much money involved.

                                        Anyone that has been reading the debates can tell that is not the half of it.
                                        If it is "commercial slaughter", which you would have first to define, why then work to ban all slaughter?

                                        No, we disagree that "slaughter" in general needs to be banned.

                                        I think we should do whatever we do, INCLUDING slaughter of any kind, in the way laws and regulations ask it be done.

                                        THAT is what I have been saying, that to ban slaughter, as some of you keep insisting because of this and that brought up as abuse and mismanagement by animal rights extremists, to further their agenda, should be handled as that, thru abuse and mismanagement programs, not wholesale bans.
                                        When some follow the guidance and agenda of animal rights extremist, well, it is no surprise the rest of us think maybe they think like them?
                                        I have been saying for yrs I have no problem with someone killing adn eating their own horse. I think that the commercial horse slaughter for human consumption system, starting with auction to the actual killing is inhumane, rife with abuse and fraud and support banning commercial horse slaughter. You seem to feel that banning anything animal welfare related (like commercial horse slaughter, horse tripping, dog fighting, bull fighting, etc) makes one a RARA. I disagree.

                                          (except one about the etymology of the word "Okie", which I found too interesting to pass up posting )
                                          Probably because no one on here supports PETA. There have been people wanting to verify stmts about them being on a FBI terrorist list, and stmts about who Richard Berman/activistcash is when someone tries to cite them as a factual source, and people that while they don't support them, feel that they will never succeed in taking away our animals, but nowhere in this entire thread has anyone said they support them. Everyone knows what their goals are. Some of us just don't feel that they are as much of a threat as others do.
