So you did a douchebag thing that only you thought was funny
A real spoiler would have been a huge douche move, and I would deserve to be permanently banned. An untrue spoiler is just mischief. Whether or not you think it's funny is your own opinion. It was intended for my fellow spoiler nazis. I admit, I'm really surprised that it caused so much grief. That was never my intention.
And Hugo, I wasn't trolling. I said I was kidding 2 posts later. It would have been one post later, but someone snuck one in between. If I was trolling, I'd have left it up there with no retraction.
And iluv, if you're still speaking to me, you seem to think that "fake spoiler" in quotations meant that I was being sarcastic, and it really was a spoiler. It wasn't. As I said, I even tested it on my dad, who has read all of the books, to make sure it had no chance of being true. I would never toss a real spoiler into the thread.
I'm sorry that it bothered people so much. I really never expected that. I just thought we'd all have a quick laugh and get on with the thread. Please don't ban me. I love my Game of Thrones buddies.
