People keep posting shit like "ZOMG, Character X is so different from his portrayal in the book! He's a Y in the book, but he hasn't been revealed as one yet!" etc. Clearly not that blatant, as this is a hypothetical example. But I've seen a lot of shit that skims pretty close. [EDIT: Perfect example -- someone a few pages back revealed what Crystal and her family were, via book spoilers.] Point is, shut the fuck up about it if it's in the book and hasn't happened yet in the series. It's not that hard of a concept to grasp. Watchers of the show generally don't care, and aren't impressed by, how much the show differs from the novels. If they were, they'd read the novels. People should start a Southern Vampire Series or Sookie Stackhouse Novels thread if they want to talk shop there. More power to them if so; not hating on the books whatsoever. I just don't enjoy spoilers, even if slight and even if inadvertent or unintentional. Honestly, I don't feel that an "if it hasn't happened yet, don't spoil it" policy is too much to ask on a TV thread.
