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!

      I'm not going to say anyone's wrong because other people were kind enough not to do that to me, but all I'm going to say is BE SELFISH! if you can't muster up mercy for other people, think about yourself. In vietnam, american atrocities were so atrocious mainly because of racism: the vietnamese not only looked different, but also looked "the same." I worry about the same thing happening in this case. If you were of middle eastern descent, how would you feel? (and please don't say "I'd understand [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif[/img] [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img] )). Also, let us not forget that nuclear weapons will not hurt an isolated area. they will hurt all of us, and they will hurt all of our children, and their children.

        also, hobson, I wasn't clear: I don't feel bad for the terrorists. I feel bad for the non-terrorists that suffer because of them, ie the civilians who were born into the wrong government, geographical location, time period, etc.

          4) Allow the Israelis to get bin Laden.
          5) For any further terrorist attack on this country, threaten to totally nuke the country/countries from which the terrorists are from..and actually do it.
          6) The US refuses to negotiate with terrorists, why should Israel?
          7) The majority of Palestinians are from Jordan, who didn't want them there and expelled them into what are now the "occupied territories. Why doesn't Jordan, and all the other Arab countries want the Palestinians
          either?
          8) Remind the critics that every Israeli occupied territory is the result of 6 or 7 wars
          started by the Arabs and won by the Israelis.
          9) Stop relying on Mid-East oil---we have more than enough resources of our own.
          10) Yes, war does lead to peace as we've proven time and again. The world hates us anyway, they might just as well fear us.
          11) Reagan knew that a strong military was the the best deterrent to war. Clinton thought differently and disbanded with it............the results of which we now must endure.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

              I remember posting similiar thinking akin to BOR after the attacks. Unfortunately, I don't have the courage to post them again after all the flaming I got. Maybe time has changed some people's minds.
              I think it might also have something to do with our age groups... [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_confused.gif[/img]

                aww hell I got flamed to death on my very own thread right after the attacks. I heard Micheal Kennedy speak yesterday (oh my he's AMAZING) and he said that the most important thing in life is DISSENT. Write flame-worthy things. Yes, you get a handfull of people who blindly respond, but it's worth it if it makes one other person able to see things from one other side. Timedjumpoff's post just did that for me.

                    "If you're conservative when you're young, you have no heart....If you're liberal when you're old you have no brain." Winston Churchill.

                    May I suggest that the uninformed on this thread do some background reading such as the writings of Thomas Paine. We all desire peace, no suffering,
                    no death and no disease. However that state will not be achieved on the earth because of those who have chosen the dark side, those whose souls are eaten up by envy and hatred.

                    I have struggled for years to understand such people through dialog and loving-kindness only to have my efforts met with mean-spirited anger.
                    I finally came to the realization that there can be no "understanding" of evil, it is it's own law unto itself.

                      Why do we need to turn this into politics???? I had a hard enough time dealing with the whole tragedy to begin with, living it everyday as my husband told horror stories about being down there..I am just thankful he is alive. That day, I didn't get a chance to talk to him until late that day. I didn't even know if he was alive or not......

                      sorry, just hits a little too far home for me to talk about politics...i'll stop now!

                      How has this changed me??? Well, my husband gets more hugs and kisses when he come home from work!!! And I MAY even cook him dinner once in a while!!!! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

                          Was in NYC last weekend and it has changed very noticably. I found myself crying unexpectedly when I walked by the Firemen's Union offices and the Firehouse next to my daughter's apt.

                          Her experience on 9/11 made her re-evaluate her life, she leaves this Tuesday to return to grad school.

                          I am impressed by the strength and love possessed by the average American citizen....and heartened by the friendship and solidarity demonstrated by our European and Israeli allies and all those who live in democracies.

                            Ok, I'll agree with 9, 10 and 11 posted by TJO, and I would like to on some level agree with 1, but the bottom line is without illegal aliens this country will fall apart. I have my flame suit on, so go ahead and reply. Many Americans do not realize how much illegal aliens actually contribute to this country, and yes, most of them pay taxes too.
                            As far as how 9/11 has changed me, it actually made me appreciate and understand Americans more and made me prouder of being a US Citizen. This country is so divided on so many senses yet when it really counts everybody unites. You don't see that in many other countries. I was truly amazed, though, that so many Americans were shocked. Why did so many think this would never happen? I was surprised that it took so long, I had seen this coming for about 15 years now. I wasn't too sure on the WTC being the target, I thought the Statue of Liberty and the White House were going to be the targets.
                            Unfortunately I think the war on terrorism is necessary, the bottom line is many countries have contributed large amounts of money to Bin Laden and the only way to help prevent future attacks is by financially hurting those countries. Besides, the United States absolutely had to respond to this or if not we would have become the laughingstock of the world and left ourselves wide open for more attacks. It would have been like sending an engraved invitation that said "Rape us, we won't do anything about it". This is the most powerful country in the world, we must also be feared and respected and the world must know our military is not to be messed with. I am grateful we did not have Gore in office. He would have tried to put the terrorists in a lockbox along with social security funds.

                              As a canadian with a very close friend whose aunt worked at the pentagon (I don't believe she'd back in her office yet), I don't know that 9/11 affected me personally, but it did through my friend. I followed everything closely.

                              I was glad that Bush declared his war on terrorism. I hope that it's done with minimal bloodshed of innocent. I hope that middle-eastern cultures aren't rejected in the US, but that those people are simply screened more carefully.

                              If anything, I'm more aware that this stuff can and will happen in North America - and Europe is not so far away after all. I wasn't surprised, per say, that it happened, but I make a point of being better informed now, and of remembering God's purpose for us all.

                                        the media/politicians, etc., we can't do what we really should be doing;
                                        1) DEPORT ALL ILLEGAL ALIENS IMMEDIATELY
                                        2) Detain or deport ALL MIDDLE EASTERN IMMIGRANTS who are not citizens, even if they have green cards, until their status and connections can be confirmed.
                                        3) Stop asking Israel to refrain from doing what we would do in the same situation.
                                        4) Allow the Israelis to get bin Laden.
                                        5) For any further terrorist attack on this country, threaten to totally nuke the country/countries from which the terrorists are from..and actually do it.
                                        6) The US refuses to negotiate with terrorists, why should Israel?
                                        7) The majority of Palestinians are from Jordan, who didn't want them there and expelled them into what are now the "occupied territories. Why doesn't Jordan, and all the other Arab countries want the Palestinians
                                        either?
                                        8) Remind the critics that every Israeli occupied territory is the result of 6 or 7 wars
                                        started by the Arabs and won by the Israelis.
                                        9) Stop relying on Mid-East oil---we have more than enough resources of our own.
                                        10) Yes, war does lead to peace as we've proven time and again. The world hates us anyway, they might just as well fear us.
                                        11) Reagan knew that a strong military was the the best deterrent to war. Clinton thought differently and disbanded with it............the results of which we now must endure. <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

                                        When I hear stuff like that Im quite happy to live in a middle power country with no views on world domination. God that must be tiring...
