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*

Wow, people can be soooo annoying.

Watch out with the standard "disabling comments", because iirc that can hide? or erase? all the existing comments.

(Oh, and I totally plan to read-and-comment-on a couple-day-old post of yours as soon as I get a chance to watch Big Love! We don't have HBO anymore, and I teach ESL on Mondays, so I'm probably going to be watching it on Tuesday for the foreseeable future.)
Jan. 12th, 2010 01:43 pm (UTC)
Bah, that's what I thought re: disabling comments. There's not a way to shut that down without blocking them all, huh? Poop.

(You can totally do that with me re:Big Love because we are tight like 10 toes in a sock. But someone I don't know that feels compelled to leave 3 or 4 comments on a 2 year old post, to other people in threads, to me... I never know which they're expecting. Once I replied to a comment in a thread and the person told me they weren't asking ME, they were asking someone else in the thread. ON MY LJ. Which meant I was supposed to check and read all comments FIRST before replying in my own LJ to a 2 year old post. THE FUCK?)

I expect an email today, Missy. I'm about to go for my run and do abs - you're gonna love to hate the abs. :D

Dude, Twilight ruined my LJ, I'm just saying.

Knife fight! Come on, Sue, that's a given. Oh, and some gardening because it's going to get up to 50!! I can't take these single digits for long, BRRRRRRRR. (I got loads of garden clean up in yesterday, too. HOORAY.)

Re: Spoilers
You think maybe these people are lost in the Old Days of TV, when missing a show meant you might never get to see it and needed a recap? Jeez, that's been a decade or more....

I cannot WAIT for this season to get rolling. Last season was excellent.
Jan. 12th, 2010 03:19 pm (UTC)
Grr! That kind of shit makes me want to VAPORIZE a bitch! It's called COMMON SENSE, PPL!

However, this nearly made me decorate my monitor with Diet Coke:

Don't come in and reveal the identity of Kaiser Soze when we're talking about the latest Wiggles episode.
Jan. 12th, 2010 03:50 pm (UTC)
Ahahaha. I mean, hey. We all do dumb things. But COME ON. You have a chance online to NOT by taking a minute to re-read your comment BEFORE YOU HIT POST.
Jan. 12th, 2010 03:36 pm (UTC)
What the -- I think sometimes people imagine you'll thank them for being all sassy and fun, not realizing ruining what's going to happen, NOT SO SASSY, AND NEITHER IS IT FUN.
Jan. 12th, 2010 03:49 pm (UTC)
You know what? I think you're on to something. I should put an ETA of "YOU ARE NEITHER SASSY NOR FUN, DON'T DISCUSS" [/Linda Richman] up there.

I actually never did mind spoilers. I can always enjoy a movie with or without knowing the ending or the big twist. It has a little to do with me always appreciating stories as a total, not a continuum, and a lot to do with the fact that the CIA cut out a little piece of my brain and put a little bag of sand where it was.

Also, sorry for bombarding yesterday's topic with Catholicism. I was on a roll.
Jan. 12th, 2010 03:52 pm (UTC)
I'm glad that spoilers don't bug you - that must keep you from ever being frustrated. I, however, HAAAAATE being spoiled. Hate.

Did Indiana Jones swap out the brains for sand? because that would be cool. hee.

Oh, and I don't mind that - having a conversation in a post with someone is totally cool. Going back a year or two on a post and demanding answers to something in a thread of three people that's 12 comments deep where I have no idea what the answer is unless I go back and re-read everything... That's the stuff that drives me bonkers. There's only so much time in the day I can devote to LJ, you know?

I still get upset when I come across Torchwood spoilers, which is completely insane of me given that it aired months ago. I would have had utter meltdown at being spoiled for something one episode away. That's just. Graaar. You're a very restrained person.
Jan. 12th, 2010 05:05 pm (UTC)
Yeah - I avoid spoilers for shows I know I'm going to get to (Dexter, for example) because I like not knowing things going in. Like movies - I want to know just about NOTHING before I go in, which is why I hate most trailers. TOO MUCH INFORMATION, GAH!!

People are poopyheads!

In other news, have you read this fic? Why Ben Regrets Ever Hiring Jack Black and Robert Downey, Jr. RDJ/Jude Law implied. It's not the best RPF I've ever read, but there's a joke in there that TOTALLY made me think of you!

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
