I did call him out for that. Not every incident I talk about is about you, for Christ's sake. When I mention incidents of book spoilers, I am talking about everyone who does them. I am not attributing them to you and you alone. Reading comp: work on it.
And, for the last time, discussing the show necessitates discussing the books. Because the show comes from the books. It seems fairly common sense to me. If you don't want to see people discussing things that have, might, or could happen you shouldn't be in the thread.
No, it doesn't. At all. This is a thread about the show, not the books. If someone asks about the books, and you know that the answer to his question may or may not spoil something that hasn't happened in the show's timeline yet, use fucking spoiler space. Or say "You know what? I'll pm you if you really want to know, but it's a potential spoiler." Or whatever other method you choose. There really are a near-limitless number of choices you can make that do not
involve spoiling shit for everyone.
I put in a request in the TransMod thread for a spoiler button.
Great. In the meantime, use spoiler space. It's lower-tech, but it works and has been common courtesy on internet forums for over 15 years. This should be end of discussion. Frankly, it should have been end of discussion ten posts ago. But no doubt you will keep arguing about it. Just stop. And stop. You are wrong. Done. When you're this deep in a hole, you stop digging. Believe me; I've been there myself. We all have. Just stop.
