If you or anyone else has suspicions about a member in the future, please share them privately with the Horse Forum Team so we can look into it. When such a suspicion is wrong, and members' suspicions often are, and accused in a thread, it's unnecessarily corrosive to a thread and often derails a thread altogether.

Supply and demand - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In microeconomics, supply and demand is an economic model of price determination in a market. It concludes that in a competitive market, the unit price for a particular good will vary until it settles at a point where the quantity demanded by consumers (at current price) will equal the quantity supplied by producers (at current price), resulting in an economic equilibrium for price and quantity.
The four basic laws of supply and demand are:[1]
  1. If demand increases and supply remains unchanged, a shortage occurs, leading to a higher equilibrium price.
  2. If demand decreases and supply remains unchanged, a surplus occurs, leading to a lower equilibrium price.
  3. If demand remains unchanged and supply increases, a surplus occurs, leading to a lower equilibrium price.
  4. If demand remains unchanged and supply decreases, a shortage occurs, leading to a higher equilibrium price.
If you're going to reply to an OP, who is a human being after all, please reply to the OP, and not flippantly or sarcastically. " "

Are you completely unfamiliar with our expectations of members here at the Horse Forum, themacpack? Ensuring that this remains a friendly or even decent place to discuss horses requires that members not reply to each other the way you replied here. Please do not reply to another member like this here again if you wish to continue participating here.

Thank you to everyone who replied civilly to this thread. Everyone is free to disagree here, but there wouldn't be a community here to have discussions and disagreements at if members participate without regard to whether their posts will repel new members and/or visitors. That's something we're not about to allow to happen, so please be mindful of it when you post.

If anyone has any questions or comments, please start a thread in the Talk to the Team forum, where only members of the Horse Forum Team can see and reply to your posts.
