Why I hate Google
 
Using Google when you are reading "old" books can be a minefield.

I just googled something to do with DS9 and accidently saw a spoiler for something kinda big.

Grrr.

Anyone got a memory wiper handy?

I abstained from the internet for two days before STID came out. It killed me, but I triumphed.

Me, too, and I was very impressed that this BBS remained remarkably spoiler-free except in those threads marked as such. I thought I was going to have to abstain from The Trek BBS totally but it didn't end up that way at all.:beer:

I have experienced similar traumas - in one particular case thanks to this very board, which not only placed, but on further consideration allowed to remain, one of the most massive spoilers there could be right in a thread title.

I was spoiled on

and

on Facebook. The former by a Trek Lit page and the latter by a bitter little Elvis wannabe. Such is the risk we run. But I still very much enjoyed both, and both still had plenty of huge surprises in store!

That was the worst spoiler related incident to ever happen to me. I still can't believe people could be so insensitive.

I'm at work now so I won't search for the thtead link, but the spoiler regarded the big event of Plauges of Night/Raise the Dawn.

I try not to use it because it personalises my searches.

^That sucks that it was spoiled for him. Though it is fast becoming old news.
