If someone asks a question about how a plot device came about nobody should catch shit for answering their question. Should they?
Also, I still don't understand how when the show and books diverge, wildly mostly, its a spoiler if its never ever going to happen in the show? I know that a few others enjoy the history/mythology/etc.. of the book info. Is it fair to deprive them? Further, I don't know why I'm getting the brunt of this as I'm certainly not the only person who's posted book info.
Really, this is mostly confusing to me.
Dude, it's not about "getting a bug up my ass." It's about your lack of respect for those of us -- and I keep using words like "us" for a reason, because it's more than just me -- who would prefer not to hear about things that happen in the book which may or may not spoil things that will happen in the show.
Listen, I understand where you're coming from. Some of the shit you're mentioning from the books seems very minor to you, and/or may already have come to pass (or not come to pass) in the show. But for events that still might possibly come to pass
in the books --such as Tara's ultimate fate, which was spoiled a page back -- please do not mention them here. Or, if you do, give it spoiler warnings and spoiler space.
The point is, let the recipients of the information have the choice
to determine if they want to read it or not. You should not be making that choice for us by blurting out book info without due warning or space. This isn't about you and what you think is minor or major. This is about everyone else who hasn't read the books and is primarily on this thread to discuss the show.
I am genuinely sorry if my tone is comung off as harsh or dickish, but I just find it annoying that this is even a subject for debate.
