re: Major BB Spoiler in Thread Title


op is a bitch the doc should be back. the show had already aired so it wasn't a true spoiler.

why would you even go open a thread about a show you are planning to watch?

I'm still not seeing how proposing a question like that is some major spoiler.

I didn't ask for the guy to be banned. I just wanted the thread whacked.

theDoc should be reinstated immediately.

Why? It was a question, not a spoiler. Everyone dies, who's to say it happened in the show?

I think it's funny that all you Breaking Bad people don't see an issue with a thread title that talks about the funeral of the main character, basically guaranteeing that means he dies in the finale.

Yet if anybody starts a GoT thread that talks about something as basic as names of characters 800 people RA and flip out that it's a Spoiler and they're ruining it for everybody.

I'm sorry, whether or not Walt dying seems obvious since he has cancer and runs a Meth ring, that is a major spoiler. It is common courtesy on the Movie/TV board to not post spoilers of shows/movies in thread titles, even if they've already aired.
Obviously you can use common sense for different type of shows, or older shows (ie: Sienfeld or Friends).

But what if I posted a thread title that said: "How did you deal with _______ dying in The Wire?" but actually listed a name?

I could be like, well hey he was a drug dealer so you should know that he dies, plus it's already aired so it's not a spoiler...

But frick me if I did that because I could spoil a big part of the show for a lot of people

Yes seriously. It could just mean Walt is such an a-hole and alienates everyone around him, and will eventually die alone. I wonder what that funeral would be like.

im not even a breaking bad person. i just dont think someone should be banned over something that has already aired and been out a few days.

Oh bullshite, if he didn't die in the finale the thread would have been "What is Walt doing now?"
Not Who comes to his funeral

It doesn't do that at all unless you assume that. It's akin to asking What would John Dorian's funeral be like. It doesn't mean he definitely died in the show, it could just be a question.

And again, Walt dying should be no spoiler.

You don't know that. You just know what happens so you are acting as if it's the only possibility.

Walt has terminal cancer, the fact that he is involved in the meth game has nothing to do with his certain death.

With that title, it's not difficult for someone to assume his death took place. I think he chose poor judgement and could have avoided this entirely.

That being said, I don't agree he should be banned over it.

Yea I know now, thanks to being spoiled.

In the show I'm 3 1/2 seasons in. At the point of the show I'm in Walts cancer seems to be fading, hey he might even beat the cancer. But no, now I know it comes back and is terminal, and he's going to die either by it or by getting killed by someone, I appreciate that
