Board Rules

2. Conversations in horse-related forums should be horse-related.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.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:

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.

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.

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.

  • Sort of Duplicate Post, One Not by Me


    Some time ago (June) I started a thread in Racing:

    https://www.chronofhorse.com/forum/f...re-on-the-head

    Looking at the WEG thread yesterday, I noted that my post appeared, word for word, but not quoted, by a new poster (not me under an alter):

    https://www.chronofhorse.com/forum/f...re-on-the-head

    Topic really has no place in the WEG discussion, but there it is.
    Strange?

    That is strange.

    May want to flag that first post for the Moderator also, to check into.
    Maybe a spammer with a new trick to get attention?

      I don't know how to contact the Moderator. Never had to do that. Can you explain how, please?

        Below each post on the right there is a flag tab you can use to flag that post, so the Moderator will check it out.

        Every time a name is highlighted in color, you can click on it and a window will show up with ways to contact that person.
        Most forums have some sticky by the Moderator and there you can click on "Moderator 1" and contact thru that window that opens.

        I would, as so the Moderator will be able to see this possible problem sooner than finding it on this forum.

        Will be interesting to see what is going on, good catch you noticed that, wonder if it has been happening all along, but no one else noticed?

            THAT ^, much simpler, just click on that there.

            Thanks for offering that link, good thinking.

              No problem! We posted at the same time and honestly I didn't even think of the flag button.

                It has happened here before at least once that I remember.
                What you have here is likely a spammer or bot trying to gain trust by looking like a real person. So it copies an older post that probably few people will remember (except in this case the person who had actually posted it) in order to look like it has some knowledge about the forum topic. I'd guess after a few posts like that you'd eventually start getting the posts that sneak in a spammy/scammy link.

                  Yep, a possibility and if so, the Moderator can check that out and ban that IP, now that we know that one is a spammer.

                    Yup, this is my guess, too. Some spammer trying to build a posting history before spamming. Maybe because some boards limit attachments or links or some other spammy behavior in posts for new posters.
