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 may be better handled privately. While posters are legally responsible for their statements, the moderators may in their discretion remove or edit posts, though are not legally obligated to do so, regardless of content.

Users have the ability to modify or delete their own messages after posting. Moderators generally will not delete posts, threads or accounts unless they have been alerted and have determined that a post, thread or user has violated the Forums� policies. Moderators do not regularly independently monitor the Forums for such violations.

Profanity, outright vulgarity, blatant personal insults or otherwise inappropriate statements will not be tolerated and will be dealt with at the discretion of the moderators.

Users may provide their positive or negative experiences with or opinions of companies, products, individuals, etc.; however, accounts involving allegations of criminal behavior against named individuals or companies MUST be first-hand accounts and may NOT be made anonymously.

If a situation has been reported upon by a reputable news source or addressed by law enforcement or the legal system it is open for discussion, but if an individual wants to make their own claims of criminal behavior against a named party in the course of that discussion, they too must identify themselves by first and last name and the account must be first-person.

Criminal allegations that do not satisfy these requirements, when brought to our attention, may be removed pending satisfaction of these criteria, and we reserve the right to err on the side of caution when making these determinations.

Credible threats of suicide will be reported to the police along with identifying user information at our disposal, in addition to referring the user to suicide helpline resources such as 1-800-SUICIDE or 1-800-273-TALK.

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!

    And they are a stickler about it. When I was in the office Wed. they have a big sign, Driver MUST stay with patient the entire apointment. meaning you cannot just drop someone off and pick them up.
    My discharge instructions, no driving for 12 hours.. Well ha, I could have driven from the appointment.
    Ex drove me back to his house, I hopped in the jeep and drove home.
    I am sure it is a liability that they are protecting themselves.
    The sad thing about my current situation is I felt okay most of the time, BEFORE the Colonoscopy, Now, Eh not so much. Monday I am calling the office. Like one of you great folks told me, must be proactive.
    Hugs and jingles. I hope you find out more information quickly and that you feel better. Glad you're calling the Dr monday.

    By the way, I turn 50 this year and had pretty much decided to blow off the colonoscopy, but I'm going to have it done.

    God knows I could use a good cleansing anyway.

      Good going Rubygirl. in truth if I had gone when I was 50 I might not be doing this thread.
      And as for a good cleansing, it is that, and I actually felt great the morning of the test.

                Happy everything day. Not doing anything special today, Feel a bit better, so finally going to do some vacuuming. LOL
                Another reason why I hardly vacuum, the 2 old cats, Especially Handsome. He is so afraid of it. even after 16 years.
                You can not even pick it up not running without him retreating under something. I always feel bad for him.
                If I have not said it lately you guys are awesome, Maybe the jingles helped make me feel a bit better, They sure lift my spirits.

                          Most people don't know how to act or react to someone having cancer. The majority of people go skipping through life never thinking of their own mortality so when suddenly faced with a friend or loved one having cancer...they choke. They're not sure what they can say without coming across as being flippant or uncaring and some are afraid of sounding like a broken record of everything you've already heard.

                          You might still get some replies after they've had some time to think about what they will or want to say.

                                This is true, I think. I believe that I react the way that I do toward someone having cancer is because I watched my other die from cancer. She was "only" 34. It became an "unclassified" type I believe, and just went wild. It just gave me a different perspective on many things.


                                Sannois, I am so sorry to here about your diagnosis. However, as you've seen in this thread, it's not always a death sentence! Especially with medical advancements and technology available to us today. I have also heard of success coming out of various clinical trials if you pursue that route. It's hard not to stress over it, but your doctor may very well develop a good and promising course of action. I really do wish you the best on this journey.

                                  Yeah, thanks guys, I figured that was the case. Funny, I am not that way at all.
                                  But everyone deals with things differently.
                                  IT was weird, because I had just gotten letters from both of them. LOL
                                  Ah well. What Zu Zu Said.. I have COTHERS!!!

                                    Don't assume anything. It's email. I just checked mine and realized I hadn't checked it since December. Maybe your friends don't check their email daily or even weekly.

                                      It is kind of strange, at least to me...My parents have had skin cancer, no biggie, it was cut out and done. My neighbor growing up had skin cancer, was in a wheelchair and bedridden from chemo and died at 32. He was tough, strong, lots of family support, and like my big bro. (He took me on my first "date", when I was 7 and had my own cancer scares.)
                                      It's tough when you don't know what to say.

                                        My friend and I have been best buds for 6 years now, we are very close. We don't pamper or mollycoddle each other but we tend to nag each other when we put off health/medical things. She rags on me to go see the doctor about a sinus infection but when I let her know that the growth on my thyroid has doubled in size and I'm going for a biopsy...silence, she won't talk about it. If she had asked, "Are you okay?" I would have been pleased and I was a little bit hurt that she didn't. If this was happening to her I would be talking about it and asking her how she's doing on a regular basis but I've had cancer and am 23 years clean.

                                        My son has a difficult time dealing with my health so to try and lighten the mood I jokingly told him that if it does come back as incurable we won't have to worry so much about de-cluttering before our big move to Nova Scotia...he wasn't amused.


                                        My neighbour recently had a cancerous growth removed from her bladder and came to me for empathy because her beautiful 34yr old daughter that loves her dearly couldn't handle talking about it with her.

                                        Like Callista said, it is hard when you don't know what to say.
