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!

      As per the racing forums don't flatter yourself I post and frequent them regularly.

      . I questioned your motives concerning why you were randomly posting on an old thread in the driving forum. Especially given your priors pertaining to the carriage industry as a whole? If you have a legit reason for posting on that thread other then to jab at McFlynn etc please enlighten us.
      So, you think it is OK to have me justify my post on a carriage thread and you think that you are beyond that. Wow, you really do think that you are holier than thou. My comment on the carriage thread was why the name calling to the anti-carriage poster, why not just address the accusations.

      Talk about the "posting police" wow, you are just so totally full of yourself, and no you don't ride or train OTTBs and came to the racing thread for only one reason to disparage me. If you had any experience with OTTBs you would have posted that, you didn't.

          Wait what you've lost me. You're suggesting that because I responded to your irrational drivel with sarcasm that means I don't ride , train, own OTTB's etc etc.

              You being "lost" is not surprising. If you and your followers truly want to defend the carriage industry and on this post the eventers, then you might have an argument to make in response to the accusations being made.

              Good thing the eventers have an argument in response to PETA which was brilliant and very well thought out. I again want to point out their own responsibility to those accusations and owning the responsibility to look into some of the perceived problems that will no doubt resolve the PETA accusations.

              Others such as yourself Lynnwood, should really take note of the sound response to PETA on their own horse industry. Name calling is just not an effective response to anything after third grade.

                  Really you need to ask...You and your buddies do nothing to help your cause. Others have dealt with the same issues on a professional level.

                  • SV you can keep attempting to post from your high horse but we all know the truth

                    As for professional defenses. They have been discussed ad nauseum. Feel free to ask McFlynn about their role in pioneering progressive changes withing their industry NOT because the likes of PETA butted in , but because it was what was best for their horses.

                    Have you ever heard the saying when "Don't be surprised when you drain the swap and find yourself a$$ deep in alligators"? Associating with PETA on any level is an invitation for infiltration.

                    • Quite frankly, Lynnwood there are times when I think you and Michaleenlflynn work for PETA since your posts have no information just vitriol. Again, you might want to learn from the eventers response to PETA.

                        Ah, but that is precisely the issue with folks like SV and EF and etc, etc, ad nauseum -- they don't see any difference between rights and motives. They conflate the two, and therefore they treat their own motives as though they conferred actual rights to have those motives prevail. Arrogant and narcissistic, but they are and will remain blind to that. The only redemptive aspect is that they take themselves so seriously it is supremely easy to toy with them. Enjoy the ensuing hilarity, because it is truly the lone upside.

Then, one year, I only worked a few days a week, and only registered two. One year, I sent a horse back to the trainer and didn't register him as a carriage horse. Last year, I registered all three but at different times. At no time did any of them ever leave my pasture. Those are the "disappearing" carriage horses. I'm sure EF would be horrified by this "turnover" rate and assume they have all been sent to slaughter.

                                        Am I the only one who has noticed that Fairfax and Stolen Virtue use many of the same buzzwords? Buddies, followers....

                                        Just goes to show you that the fringes use much the same rhetoric.

                                          So a poster with the screen name "obsidian " calls anyone who would question the carriage industry a "narcissus" well how dense are you obsidian ? You are the one who takes yourself "so seriously" time to grow up, and grow a spine....Some times telling the bullies that they are wrong requires a spine.....

                                          Oh and your "fart jokes" well my 12 year old has learned not to use those as ridicule....might want to take a lesson from junior high students...clearly better at an intelligent argument than yourself...
