Book spoilers don't require special treatment [In reply to] Can't Post

I see where you're coming from regarding the weekly Hobbit board thread on Main. If a book spoiler gets into someone's subject line, just edit it out in your summary and include your usual spoiler warning. While it might be a small courtesy to keep book spoilers out of subject lines, we just can't require it as a hard and fast rule for all the reasons Silverlode and I gave above.

You're resourceful. If they crop up, I'm sure you'll find a creative way to handle them. Smile
