As for the revelation about a central event... Look if you care that much if spoilers bother you that much than they do, but frankly some of you carry on to a degree that I personally find a little ridiculous. It would be like finding out that if you follow a certain road at the end is San Francisco and proclaiming that the whole trip is now ruined.

The most extreme example in my opinion are people over in Wholand who got pissed off because people didn't spoiler code the HUGE FUCKING PUBLIC ANNOUNCEMENT about who will be playing the next Doctor. Bottom line if you are really that spoiler adverse I'd advise pretty much staying the fuck off the internet because spoilers not only live here but they breed with a rapidity rivaled only by Tribbles.
Well said and captures my feelings precisely. As I said earlier, I wish people would be more careful about using the spoiler tags. But everyone makes mistakes or forgets from time to time. It's up to all of us to think for ourselves and decide if visiting the site after a new novel comes out is worth accidentally seeing spoilers that might ruin any surprises the book has in it. For those who have difficulty enjoying a book after the ending has been revealed, I'd suggest avoiding message boards like this until you've had a chance to read the book.
