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!

    Sorry if that bothers you.
    Too sick to comment on those that use this tragedy for their continuing anti slaughter agenda.

    Yesterday a limousine with several women broke out in fire and killed several of them and no one started making any one case for their agendas, whatever those are.

    This was one more accident of many out there.
    Too bad some seems to be the kind of people that have to use even a terrible accident to push agendas, shame on them.

    What if that had been your trainer's barn going up in flames, or big rig going to any one show, which it very well could have been?

              I'd like to take this opportunity to remind everyone that EVERY ONE of the horses on that truck were there because their OWNERS* put them there.

              The karma is theirs*--and it comes back threefold.

              Take personal responsibility for what you own.

                  Um, that's not MY "dirty work", and if you think Cheryl Hanna is "lobbying" for a ban on transport of horses to slaughter, you're more naive than I had thought. Then again, you don't even have horses, and all you really do here is stir up trouble in threads like this.

                  Time for me to go feed my horses, so you have fun in this thread while you wait for the next slaughter thread to come along.

                    There you go, bringing logic and personal responsibility into it...if someone wanted those horses, they wouldn't be headed to slaughter. If you don't want a horse slaughtered, buy it and keep it. If you won't pay for it, why should anyone else?

                    As for which is worse, hm, let me think, a bolt to the head and they never knew what hit them, or BURNING TO DEATH until either the smoke kills them or the fire does, pretty much one of the worst ways to die...yeah, not really a choice there.

                      You know, your anti slaughter side keeps claiming the moral high ground while acting like you do there, being mean to others with any and all they can use trying to insult them.

                      Tell me, where in the COTH rules does it say you have to own anything to post?
                      I don't think it is Alagirl who is pushing the rules of posting here, but those picking at her with under the belt comments.

                      I have not been saying anything about that your group keeps bringing up as a dig, but honestly, what a group you represent with those comments.

                      For those that want to make this one more anti slaughter thread, be my guest, but think, does it make a difference who's truck burned down, any more than who's barn burned down, or is that just one more place for the antis to make hay while the sun is shining?
                      If that truck was even going to slaughter, which I don't think has been established yet, but makes for one more handy guess to push the HSUS anti this and that agendas, here anti slaughter.

                          There is a way of doing things, that don't seem right to the outsider, but are essential for the safety, like keeping horses from moving around.

                          .
                          It is absolutely not necessary to cram horses into a trailer to keep them safe. And I don't know anyone who would transport valuable horses 30 to a load. If it was so much safer, you would see big shippers like Equine express, advertising "Fully packed loads...30 to a trailer, for safety!" And I know of no one with show horses that would ship 30 to a trailer. The only ones you see doing that are kill buyers trying to get as many as they can moved as cheaply as they can...Horse welfare and safety are not a consideration.

                            Another one that doesn't understand this was an accident, could have happened no matter how many or few horses were being hauled, is only using this as one more chance to try to push anti slaughter agendas.
                            A shame to go there in such tragedies.

                              Um...from the article:

                              The horses were being shipped from Shippensburg, Pa., to a rendering plant in Massueville, Quebec, police said.


                              Massueville, Quebec also happens to be where Richelieu is, and as someone already posted, rendering plants are for dead animals.

                                I think it has been also told that the article was of questionable sources and definitely the "rendering" in that article is dubious, as those plants are not generally set to handle live animals.

                                Anyway, keep on with the anti slaughter message, if that gives you pleasure in the midst of truly a terrible accident, that could and has happened no matter who the ones involved were.

                                  Yes indeed..that's kind of a DUH thing to even believe for a moment anyone is shipping living horses, 30 at a time in a cattle truck, to a rendering plant in Canada. Really?

                                  I suspect this was the official lie/story to avoid persecution as there are some tough laws in NY State regarding the shipping of horses to slaughter. Cattle trucks are a no no there and have been longer than the Federal law has been on the books. I sure hope the law enforcement in NY is not stupid enough to believe that one. Considering these guys have a record of horse abuse and shipping violations, I kind of doubt it.

                                    Which non slaughter horse transport with 30 horses on it, has had their trailer crash/burn up in a fire?

                                        "Rub it's hands in glee"? There is nothing gleeful in the fact 30 horses were burned to death and no one has posted anything with even a hint of glee in their message.
