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.

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.

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.

  • How to Report a Fake/Spam User?

    I know how to report when there is a spam post made, but how do I report a specific user? I received the following message from a new user this morning and it is obviously spam:

    If you figure it out, please let me know! I've received two (so far) private messages today from a user with no forum activity that are titled "hello" but contain no actual message. Previously, I forwarded a problem message to Moderator 1 and it was remedied, but it would be easier if there was a "mark as spam" option for private messages.

      I just deleted it but if anyone knows how to report, I'm all ears.

                Suswill is who sent the private message I received.

                  This is who I'm getting messages from, but all the messages I've received thus far have been blank.

                    There was a blank message above the one that had the typed message for me. I'm thinking some sort of BOT is responsible and not a human sending all these messages and probably hacked this users account. The actual real person who owns the account is probably unaware.

                      Weird, count me as left out unless it just hasn't gotten to my part of the alphabet
                      Maybe the reason I love animals so much is because the only time they have broken my heart is when they've crossed that rainbow bridge

                        4LeafCloverFarm Yes, it was from suswill. Was marked as a Greenie and didn't appear to be any forum activity yet except for messaging a large number of users apparently...

                          I just got this PM too. Would like to know how to report so that mods can block this poster. Obviously spam.

                          Mods? Can you take a look and do what needs to be done. thanks

                                We deleted all messages sent by this user (50 something) and banned the account. I'll check PMs to see if you can still report them any way... you can also forward the PM to me and so we can address it.

                                Thanks!
