For your info.  
I consider casting news and episode titles as spoilers. This time last year if I'd known Bobby, Ellen, Jo and Ash (etc) were slated to become recurring/semi-regular characters I'd have been annoyed.

I'm therefore annoyed this morning because despite my post less than two days ago, I've been spoiled.

So here's my policy - if you post something spoilery out of a cut, you go off my default view. I don't want to defriend you because I love my flist, but I will not be spoiled. If you think you're off my default list and post something you want me to see, post a comment or link in whatever my most recent post is.

Sorry, but it's only June. I still can't quite believe I'm having to do this before they've even started filming for the next season!

Ah yes, quite a bunch of us, isn't it?unhobbityhobbit on June 15th, 2007 09:10 am (UTC)
I'm really, really hoping it'll all die down once they get on with filming and people stop being cast/stuff stops being written.

I refuse to go on spoiler alert all year round, that's just ridiculous.

It's getting a little ridiculous already. Especially with some people being so anti what they've heard that they're making icons and the like about it already. It's almost as bad as the Jo-hate that started before anyone had even seen her last year which was completely beyond the joke.

I hope you're right and that once filming actually starts some sense will prevail!

Sorry the text was so early by the way - it was only as it was sending that I realised it wasn't actually 7 in the am yet... *oops*

I think it will calm down, people are getting news about something and having a knee-jerk reaction to it, that will fade over time I hope.

I realised I hadn't made it as clear as you had as to what I consider a spoiler - which is pretty much anything that comes from a confirmed source that could be treated as fact. So casting, ep titles, location shoots etc - all of that counts.


It just bugs me when people post something about how they don't think something counts as a spoiler when, to people like me and thee, it does.

The silly people can all be lined up against the wall and sporked repeatedly now, and then when the season actually gets underway we don't have to worry about them.

I'm more annoyed about the utter lack of faith it shows in Kripke, his writers and co-stars. I think its utterly insulting, considering the fact, that in my opinion, they've done nothing in either S1 & 2 to warrant such a reaction. Jaysus.

That's it exactly! I mean, this show has gone from strength to strength and *nothing* that fen were panicking about last year was detrimental to the show.

Yes, okay, maybe there are some Jo-haters out there who feel vindicated that her character wasn't as prominent as they might have expected and put that down to their campainging, but who's to say that wasn't the plan anyway?

Basic point is this - this is kripke's show. He's paid to make it, we aren't. When fen start dictating how a show should run, you end up with a crap show and none of us want to see that.

So fandom? Yes, thanks to some inconsiderate people, I have an idea as to why you're up in arms right now. But seriously, chill the hell out!

What was it those icons were saying last year? In Kripke We Trust?


(sorry, rant is in no way aimed at you - I just had to get that off my chest!)

Apology not necessary, 'sho I know where you're coming from.

I'm annoyed as all hell because of the tar it sheds on all of us.

It always seems like it's the batshit crazy fen who make the most noise and the rest of us get lumped in right along with them.

No wonder fen are ridiculed in the realms of Real Life.

Yeah I am totally with you, I have now been spoiled by accident, a post on my flist was discussing fan reactions to spoilers but managed to give an idea of what said spoiler was, there was no cut or nothing so a tad annoyed. I think I will need to do the "I AM A SPOILERPHOBE" post as well cause otherwise its going to be hard to avoid.
