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!

    Anyway..I truly don't care..As I stated..I have had a wonderful life..I have met wonderful horse people and I guess I have friends in the thousands i.e. 4000 BEST friends on facebook..even the sarcasm dripping in that quote was ignored by your little group.

    I asked John Whitaker why he never posts on COTH..look him up..kinda famous in horse jumping...lets just say he was less than kind...He stated that many years ago a group of the ladies decided they would band together and run those horrible men off..so he has laughed at the fact I am still at it...Of course some "men" get a pass from you. I.E. Mike..he onoy presents..never comments and you will have your token male to TROT out every once in a while.

    I am actually flattered that someone would think I am so VERY important outside of my own mind, that they would put me in the esteemed groups i.e. Sir Winston Churchhill, Dorothy Parker, Mark Twain..by publishing MY QUOTES

    Mistakes and all..I sincerely hope some of you are also honored.

    Now back to regular programing.

    • It gets ridiculous - there is no discussion - it's all a bunch of kids screaming "I'm right - no I'M right nuh uh uh huh"
      If you can't get your point across - you immediately bring out the rara card and it goes downhill from there.
      Whatever suits ya.

        What ever gave you this impression?

        I am not one to tell people they need to shut up.

        I have rather enjoyed y'alls latest excursions. It really made a lot of things rather clear.

        besides, the BB has an excellent ignore function. It helps to filter most of the nonsensical rhetoric and polemic rather nicely.

        But I am rather lazy today, so I can restrain myself to analyze jetsmom's propaganda essay she offered as 'honest answer'. My critically trained brain was convulsing with laughter when I skimmed it (never thought I would thank my language teacher for something, but yeah, thanks dude, critical reading 101 FTW!)

        but maybe you need to brush up on your personal digs. they are becomeing a bit stale and to obvious to goat somebody into slipping and giving you a valid reason to report them for 'name calling'

        • Whoever said anything in life is fair?? You're always a great one for sticking out tongues and eye-rolling emoticons.
          You can't seem to win an argument on it's merits so you have to resort to bs.

            I think you are missing the boat, while you are handing out candy and pads to your kids:
            Of course there is no discussion.
            It would require to have
            a) respect
            b) a semi open mind to even read the opposing argument
            c) the ability to critically and on the point to respond to arguments
            d) refrain from goating and name calling.

            So we are having one side stating that situation X isn't good, but fixable, reasons given and that if situation X would fall away Y would be the consequence and it would not be good.

            Which has been proven BTW. It's a fact which can't be refuted, hence the name calling

            The other side keeps insisting that Situation X is bad and must be eliminated.
            arguments are mostly emotional.
            The arguments are easily dealt with with facts, which brings group B to the point of abandoning rational discussion.
            Since you brought up 'kids' as analogy, I am taking it up and run with it: If your kids behaved like that, you's spank them and/or put them in time out.


            here is a set of rules I am used to debate by:
            http://distanthorizons.proboards.com...y&thread=14891

            Needless to say your special friends would not have lasted a single round with that bunch! By the beginning of round two their non-arguments would have been blown out of the water, their temper tantrums met with biting sarcasm and ridicule. From the moderators no less!

            There is no discussion to be had when one side stands to far edge of the issue with no intention to even consider anything but their stands.

            The people you like to attack though are occupying the middle ground: You are not obligated to frequent or in other ways make use of Situation X.
            They do not impinge on the choices you make regarding of what is yours.

            Yes, there is always a thinly veiled personal attack (sometimes hardly covered, after all, there's lawyers in the family!), coupled with a ready ability to cry foul at the slightest reciprocation. it is internet bullying at it's finest, after all, who strikes second usually gets busted.

            it seems silly to listen to Fairfax when he suggests some of the COTH members have paid interests in these 'discussions'
            but when you read a canned response like the one from jetsmom....the idea does not seem too farfetched anymore.

            maybe we need to do some stalking. When finally the hammer comes down and we won't be able to afford keeping horses anymore, we should visit your friends and express our gratitude to them. After all, they are only out to save the pretty ponies!

                  But keep it up, maybe the COTH hounds get mad enough to sniff you out.
                  After all, you ARE trying to impede on their rights.

                    Hm, let me see, what position was it on my list?

                    Don't matter in any case.
                    It's pointless, since everytime somebody points these things out to you the canned response and the hurt feelings are paraded around.
                    carry on.

                        Poor you.

                        But I am sure you overestimate the importance you have.

                        but it certainly proves my points rather nicely.
                        if you don't have an argument, act hurt.

                        Have a couple of aspirin.
                        and don't call me in the morning.
                        Because, well, I know it hurts your feelings, but you are really not that important.

                        But to return to the matter at hand....please do make excuses for uninformed people meddling in your personal business.

                        Oh, the irony: You believe that your personal business is yours and yours alone, while at the same time you advocate for individuals to meddle, record and inform on others, because they engage in activities that hurt your tender sentiments.

                        Where I come from we call that being a hypocrtite. What do they call it in your universe?

                          That's okay, you just go on living in your little bubble with unicorns and butterflies. The uniformed person here is you. However, it doesn't really matter what you think when I (and several others) know there is legal evidence to prove you wrong.

                            keep at it. It is indeed amusing.

                            not constructive, but funny!
