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!

    Even tho there is the drama of the seized horses i would not rely on that shutting down Ms Burnell.

    therefore i suggest anyone that has been allegedly wronged by Ms Burnell to gather all your paperwork, facts etc and contact Daventry here on COTH - she has said she will help folks find legal help.

    I would hope that folks can band together and work to bring justice.
    This is the main goal ^.

      FFS people! Why do you think you deserve to know about a person's private business dealings? Why would that person come on here and broadcast it when certain participants of this thread seem to exist only for the DRAAAAAMA and others have such thinly veiled agendas, it makes saying anything akin to walking in a mine field. All the little nudge nudge/wink wink postings about the 'truth' and the 'facts' coming out do not make them so.

      Why not let the MHS do it's job and the courts do theirs?
      The bolded is exactly what is creating the drama...who called her the enemy??? Take a good look in the mirror before looking around.

        3Dogs I hate to burst your bubble but have you taken a look around you recently? There are quite a few who do business this way and they aren't all shady.

            I am a bit lost on how you are making connections between those actions and Madoff, because if a breeder - ANY breeder - owns the stock, then they have the right to sell, give away, discount, trade that stock however they please. It's their property. So I am not sure what is illegal or unethical about that? It might be a stupid business practice, one they cannot afford to do and still meet their financial obligations, or it might actually improve their position in the market and give them a better "product".

            Either way, it's pretty standard stuff in the breeding world, be it horse, other livestock, dog or even cats . Breeders trade stock or breedings to build up a base that suits the type of animal they are trying to develop. Nothing new or radical about that. If Ogden Phipps and Claiborne swapped a few mares and foals or breeding seasons because Claiborne had a mare that worked better with Easy Goer and Phipps had a mare that would have suited Pulpit perfectly, would you be all aflutter? Because that sort of trading is how we got Secretariat. It kind of worked out well for the world, don't you think?

            So implying that is like the lure of Bernie Madoff (whose crime was taking other people's money, not wasting his own) is either falsely provocative or just plain not SMRT.

            A case (many cases actually) needs to be made against the illegal activities that JB has conducted and there is no shortage of those, but when you muddy the waters by implying things to suit your own private little agenda against (yet another) third party, you probably damage the efforts of those actually wronged by JB and trying to seek restitution or resolution. Pat yourself on the back, enablers and dogs come in all shapes and sizes apparently...
            Your crazy is showing. You might want to tuck that back in.

                Maybe they are not shady, maybe they are not, we do not even know who you are talking about, nor does it matter.

                Do not use your "everyone else is doing it" excuse on us.

                They have not been documented ripping everyone off and causing animals to suffer through negligence and starvation, as has Jill Burnell. Therefore these people that you speak of may conduct their business as they please, without public scrutiny, public anger, and public outrage.

                • Congratulations people! You have all done splendid work towards doing Jill B's job for her. She doesn't have to post, obfuscating and confusing the situation until no one remembers that she is the subject and focus of the need to shut down her operation and get her horses in a safe place. You have, with your malice and ego, managed to totally shift this focus towards the usual Sport Horse Forum focus of "I'm right and everyone else is wrong." Or, to put it another way "me, me, me." What a truly wonderful group you are.

                  I hope that this thread IS shut down because, at this point, it is doing nothing more that to prove, once again, what a selfish and self-centered group sport horse breeders on this forum seem to be.

                  When I want a new horse, I'll be sure to go get one from the track. At least the owners and trainers there are honestly dishonest.

                    All the squabbles aside, I do not see this. There have been some amazingly generous offers of help and donations that have been made to help in this situation.

                      MY "everyone else is doing it excuse",,,seriously Ren do you really not read much? As long as people want to generalize, drag others into a situation they should not be in or spew lies instead of fact I will take issue with it.

                          Worthwhile correction on this one point, trubandloki. When the confiscation news first broke, there were many such offers. And you'll notice that most of those people have long since left the discussion. In every barrel of bad apples, a few manage to retain their freshness. The direction that this discussion has turned lately, unfortunately, just illustrates how few those good apples are.

                            I'm not in any way referring to the movie. I'm referring to Phipps and Hancock choosing to waive stud fees in order to attract suitable mares in exchange for half the progeny of those mares.

                            Can you elaborate on what you though I was referring to? Or did you just assume my knowledge was limited to the fiction of the movie, which had precisely nothing to do with the topic at hand, the legality or ethical nature of waived or discounted stud fees. The reality? A bit more on point.
                            Your crazy is showing. You might want to tuck that back in.

                              I will say that some people posting on this thread are just as nutty as JB is. What is it about breeding horses that brings the nutjobs out of the woodwork?

                              BTW, many people on this thread are confusing the word "defense" with the word "fact." Look it up...

                                    That is me who liked your post. I took it the way you meant it.

                                    If Acertain smile doesn't begin to stick to fact, instead of spreading wild and demeaning rumors. this thread will probably be shut down (which should have happened at least 100 pages ago)..

                                    So.... Keep on going Acertainsmile. Only people like you (and me, who was goaded into a vituperative reply) will get this shut down.
