Spoilers! [In reply to] Can't Post

It had nothing to do with free speech. They don't want details getting out too early.

Just like how there are embargoes with new books and magazines. Could you imagine if a shop started selling a new Harry Potter book a month before the rest of the world? There would be outrage!

It gives everyone a level playing ground, and restricts too much information being leaked too soon.
