In case you didn't know this...

PEOPLE DON'T LIKE TO BE SPOILED FOR THINGS. Not TV shows, surprise birthday parties, movies, how the book ends, marriage. (lol) But seriously. From this point on I will ban people from comments if you put a spoiler for something in my journal., without due warning in a header (or if the post doesn't warn about spoilers FOR THAT PARTICULAR TOPIC.)

I even SAID in my post linked up top that I haven't seen a particular something, and that's just how the comment led off, "Oh you haven't? Here's what you'll see!" WTF. If I've made a cut for spoilers, that is your clue to go crazy nuts ON THAT ONE TOPIC. Don't come in and reveal the identity of Kaiser Soze when we're talking about the latest Wiggles episode.

All I'm saying is that there are a few people that I do not know from Adam that need to dial it down a bit and think before they post. I don't care that it was a silly reality show. I don't care if it was the newest Nike commercial that I'm wanting to see: DON'T SPOIL PEOPLE. In case it's not obvious, that really pissed me off. Not to mention that my inbox was filled with random comments from four or five other posts, too, some posts going back a year or more. (That happens ALL THE TIME. Guys, I just don't have the energy to go back, re-read old comments and posts in order to remember the context, any random off-shoots that post caused, etc. just to give YOU a satisfactory answer, Internet Stranger.)

ONE COMMENT ON ONE POST. ONE. Say your piece there. Make sure it's spoiler free. Make sure you're not breaking any of THESE IMPORTANT RULES THAT ARE ALWAYS LINKED AT THE TOP OF MY JOURNAL. I'm not going to try and gently help people figure out the internet/LJ any more. I get too many comments/random folks in here to help them figure things out. We should all know how to use Google at this point. Sorry. I'm not your mama.

But tell ya mama I axed how she durrin. And act like you know. (And I'm now going to research the option to close commentary on old posts. That seems like a simple solution to me.)

Yes I did just wake up. This isn't how I prefer to start my mornings, either.

[ETA] And it should go without saying that my LJ isn't for everyone, and there are no hard feelings for bugging out. Which a handful of you have already done. I applaud your sensibilities, even if I don't share them. Sail on into this good night, Cap'n! *salutes*
