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!

        Well, it's started. The standard for Kim's treatment is a few hours in the clinic and then 48 hours at home on a small portable pump. Then a full week off, and then second treatment two weeks from today. The oncologist will make adjustments in dosage and other additives based on how she feels and responds.

        Kim, you're in my thoughts all the time, but especially today, tomorrow and Thursday. Drink as much as you can stand, to help flush out the toxins.

        And focus on ponies and daisies!


        • Thinking of you...Hang in there Kim. I wish I could be there to help.

                      Well I am home. Pump in tow. LONG day, got there at 8:30 felt like a horse that was going to bolt at any second, plastic bag on side of road, LOL The nurses are amazing. I had already made friends with several that were not the chemo ones. and they all came back to chat. The educator is a great girl, she is genuine and knows her stuff.
                      I pretty much knew about the drugs since I spend way too much time reading about them.
                      The nurse that did the infusion, Sue is great. a few months older than me and 6 ft tall. and does not look her age.
                      She was super.
                      I do not know what the big fuss is about using a numbing cream for the needle insertion into the port, I never felt it.
                      Hell I have been bitten by horse flies and deer flies, now those hurt.
                      She was funny, she said some cannot take even the littlest prick.
                      Gave me dex, Gee we know what that is, and anti nausea stuff. I brought my kindle, but not much time to read, so much checking and chatting.
                      they give you lunch from their bistro, I had chicken and baked potato and a slice of Angel food cake.
                      All the water and juice and coffee or tea or whatever you want. They give you 2 goodie bags, water bottles, puzzle books, lotion, thermometer, stress ball, More I forget what.
                      IT is just long. Boring. oh they give you an ipad and free net flix. I watched the money pit! LOL
                      I never felt any different. MY blood pressure was up both times they took it, but she said that is the stress of the day.
                      This pump is a pain in the tush, it is not that small, it is in a carrying bag, I have been carrying it like a purse, but I think I will put it over my head like a shoulder thingy for sleep. I cannot see how anyone could forget it.
                      I did get Sue to show me my CT scan, UGH.. And I did learn a few interesting things,
                      You know they are never supposed to say, no you cannot be cured, but what this will do, with any luck is shrink that bad boy down to make things more comfortable.
                      This is what makes me so mad. All my tests were excellent, kidney, liver is still good,
                      I was as healthy as a horse.. HA HA HA ! until this.
                      even the CT scan report which I was reading said no other abnormalities seen.
                      I am not tired, I feel okay. no pain, but I figure that is the Dex.
                      I get it out Thursday at 2 pm.
                      You guys I thought about you the whole time. Hoping that I feel okay the rest of this week.
                      Thank you so much for this support. you are all amazing.

                            • Wow, that's a good report! Good for you! Thanks for checking in.
                              I don't know how the staff got anything done with all of us "there" !


                              • YAY! done!!!! Rock on!! That's so awesome!!! Yay for dex--yes it helps and yay for it! Good job gettin' 'er done! hope it's a peaceful evening with the kitties, but awesome for starting this!


                                • yay!! you made it.

                                  Yup, just sling that thing over your head so it's cross-body, for sleep. DH slept on his back and had his little buddy, Willie, on his stomach. He pushed as much hose as possible into the bag so there wasn't hose everywhere. If you roll on it and it pinches off, the pump will alarm. THAT in the middle of the night can be alarming.

                                      Oh yeah, I planned on it. That is another thing they give you, a blank journal.
                                      Thanks for reminding me!

                                          Yeah, that is what Sue the Nurse said, she had already stuffed a bunch in, I have put more in.
                                          I am a pretty non restless sleeper, so I am hoping it goes without a hitch.
                                          I am keeping it covered in bed, in case one of the Oldsters suddenly gets an attack of the kitty fairys and goes after the clear wiggly worm. LOL glad I do not have a kitten now!
