Exclamation Conscientious Etiquette Policy

Conscientious Etiquette Policy

The Horse Forum was created so that people can discuss horses in a friendly, fun, helpful environment. While the Horse Forum is open to the public, we reserve the right to restrict access to those who undermine our efforts to preserve the character of the community.

Please exercise what we call conscientious etiquette when you post. This means that you keep the objective of preserving the forum's friendly, fun, helpful environment in the forefront of your mind as you write your message.

If your post is nasty, condescending, rude, etc., regardless of how subtle, and whether shrouded in the form of opinion or otherwise, it is subject to be removed and your access to the Horse Forum may be restricted.

This applies to the Critique forum as well. People come here because they are passionate about their horses. Naturally, a biting critique about an animal a person is passionate about can be very hurtful. While a request for critique implicitly invites criticism, the sensitive nature of such topics is all the more reason to post conscientiously, keeping the other person's feelings in mind.

Our interest in preserving the nature of the community trumps our interest in allowing everyone to share their opinion here. If you can't share your opinion in such a way so as to preserve the friendly, fun, helpful nature of the community, don't.

Please exercise conscientious etiquette when you post. Please use the alert button to notify the Horse Forum Staff when you read something by somebody who clearly hasn't.

If you have any questions, please contact a moderator.

Thank you,

It's my first day here and I find it so reassuring to see that you have a conscientious Etiquette Policy.
I have been a member of Horse City for only a few months and find that there are a group of people there that run rampant across the board being rude, hurtful, and nasty to anyone who writes a post that is different from their post.
It is far from a joy to be a member there. I am here looking for a forum that is truly friendly, helpful and pleasant to be a member of. Thank you for your policy. MissB

And love like crazy"

Watch out, MissB. Not sure if FP has completely decided to stay away from the dark side.
