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!

          How long has it been in? If it's in longer and is more full, it's going to be easier to get out. I agree that getting into a bath and removing it there is a good idea. It won't be dry and rub on the way out. Don't be tense, just sit in the bath and slowly give it a try. Things like this happen all the time, you'll live.

                  you could go to the emergency room if you're freaking and really can't get it out... (i won't tell the story of me and what happened back in the day when those contraceptive sponges were popular. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif[/img])

                  and, FWIW, all the ob tampons i've ever used have strings.... just no applicator.

                    Could be she's putting those OB's in upside down! I mean, if she can't see the string! Now, if Oops gets really tensed up, it may be pretty darn tough to remove for a while. Try squatting and PUSHING at the same time. ANd breathe, for God's sake!!!!

                            I just have to say that if anyone ever needs help in the field of tampon application (I don't know about removal. . .), FatLilPony is the woman for the job. What with her foolproof visual aids and all.

                            Edited: Hmm, I can't find the best one... of her demonstrating step two. This is step one. (AKA, "this is a tampon.") Oh well, if anyone viewed the infamous pic thread back in April, you'll know what I mean.

                                  ...who knows about these things, [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img] you can simply put another tampon in alongside the other one, wait, and when you take the new one out, the old one should come out with it. Tampons can't "get lost," so you should be able to find it. I hate to sound gross, but maybe try using a mirror?

                                  Anyway, I was an all-napkin girl until I was 18. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif[/img] How I ever survived riding that way, I don't know. But once I tried a "cork," as one of my friends so eloquently called them, there was no going back.

                                  I don't know anything about the O.B.'s. I'm a classic Tampax chick! Biodegradable, flushable wrapper AND applicator. Feminine products are so bad for the environment, I figure it's the least I can do. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

                                    Heh, no luck yet but a very brave friend of mine is on his way to help me out. The sad part is I don't wear tampons very often because this same thing happened to me a few years ago, and this same friend helped me out back then too.
                                    Even scarier, I'm not the only female that he has helped in this, er, predicament.
                                    Sorry to have posted this, although I did notice someone "cough Fjord cough" was amused. I'm just sorta freaking out here, and it's been there for about 16 hours now, and i'm starting to get a fever. Probably psychosomatic since I am the drame queen.

                                      First of all, let me say that this is one thread I never thought I'd post to. Secondly, although I can vouch from personal experience that what sbt78lw's mom says is true, I wouldn't recommend it. Due to a very unfortunately timed memory lapse, I once found myself attempting to remove two tampons at once, and it was the single most excruciating, agonizing moment of my life - it may very well have served to cement my decision never to reproduce. Admittedly, the things were of the super-ultra-mega absorbant variety and could probably have held a couple bucketfuls of fluid. But seriously, if two tampons made me want to die, then I find it very hard to believe that trying to eject a creature the size of a watermelon from my uterus really wouldn't finish me off once and for all.

                                      Cheers,

                                        My goodness girl, you should be able to get it out without a guy friend ummm that is kind of worrisome. Both in the way that you need a guy and he has done this before(by the way how exactly did he do it?) and that it is still in there. Fever I would say because you are freaking out totally. Relax it can't be so far away that you can't reach it? Okay so lets think of something calming and reach in and get that sucker!!!!Tweezers???

                                          1. Relax. TSS is so incredibly, incredibly uncommon. Like... I'd be less surprised if you got anthrax or something.

                                          2. I've accidentally left them in for 24 hours before. I wouldn't recommend it, but I did live to tell about it.

                                          3. The fever is probably from frantic... um... search and removal efforts, or, as you said, all in your head. (Ah, you probably wish the problem was with your head right now. . .)

                                          And the person coming over to help you out is a "he"?! And this is the SECOND time he's done this for you, AND you're not the only one he's helped?

                                          Hmm.
