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!

          "Apparently, all of Jill Burnell's craziness and frauds have finally caught up with her. There is a big thread over on Crotch. I know, sorry, but I went over there because a friend of mine bought a foal from Jill recently that Jill sold to someone else before my friend could get from PA to TX to get it and I just heard from a few people about the thread."

          • Well there's the proof! Of course the humane society is investigating her!

            I'm happy to see the county enforcing her numerous code violations.

            Did I miss something or did ratemyhorsepro just add 4 more pics?

            ETA, nope, they're definitely adding more pics. Check the article again, there's already 5 more, including a great bike picture.

            • Marin County is tough. It takes at least two years to get through the planning department. The permit process is a bitch. A friend, who's a contractor in Marin, won't buy land there, because he know's too well the hoops you have to jump through, in order to build.

              • Holy. Sheet. What a dump. The new place is MUCH worse than I'd imagined.

                • She's got a big flatscreen TV in her trailer! WTF

                  ETA just noticed all the Med vials on the dirty trailer table. I'm guessing come spring that table would have also been processing all her semen if the Humane Society and County had left her alone.

                  • The wind comes through there, as well as the storms from the coast. I see no shelter from the winds for the horses. They must have really suffered during the 3 weeks, in December, when we got 20 inches of rain. It was nasty!

                        I don't think anything can be considered "funny" about this situation.

                        It is tragic all around ,for the horses, and for the people who have been decieved by this woman. I'm sure this whole mess is also difficult for Jill's (uninvolved) family members, such as the OP.

                        No, I don't see fat jokes in this circumstance as funny either.

                        I am relieved that the horses will continue to be looked after by Marin Co. Hopefully an end in sight to this nightmare.

                          • Collecting bicycles is really a better hobby. No feeding, no shelter, no collecting and being careful not to contaminate anything...
                            Kudos to the judge and to Marin County for going after not only the animal issues but the other violations.
                            Whoever sold her the property must have been as good a liar as she is!

                              From what I have seen of the "Diva" site , not an auto correct, but an expression of contempt.

                              • How can anyone live in such filth?? I mean the horses have no choice, but how does a human voluntarily live in those conditions??

                                And, while I know he isn't big to behind with, did anyone else notice how small Aloha looked in the one picture? Not that it really has anything to do with anything, it just struck me...

                                  • Did I see that she claims not to own RS any longer ... that he was sold to Ronda Stavisky (whoever she is????)

                                      Oh well; either way I got my laugh in for the night. I long ago stopped caring about asshats or their opinions.

                                      • So, Romantic Star was sold before the seizure and the new owner Ronda Stavisky is unaware of his condition AND is represented by Weems (Jill's attorney).
                                        I'd want a different attorney, than the one representing the person accused of neglecting the horse, if I owned him. Just sayin...

                                        • Isn't it "strange" that the stallions were sold? I wonder who will claim to own Redwine now??? Still, no matter who owns them, JB is responsible for their (lack of) care. Again... was it really legal?
