I'm just dumbfounded that this is so hard for people. How do you all manage to wipe your ass much less log onto a computer?
You should check out the flaming wreckage of the True Blood threak circa about this time last year. There was a similarly endless debate about book spoilers. Having lived through that festival of facepalmery, I am not necessarily surprised to see its playing itself out again here.
I don't understand what, precisely, about the phrase "Don't post any book spoilers" warrants confusion, analysis, examination, debate, resistance, denial, anger, or attempted subversion. But then, there's a lot about people on the internet that I'll never understand.
