^You know, being a thread discussing the new book with spoilers in the title, placing things, especially things that aren't spoilerish under spoiler tags is pretty redundant.

Yes you may get the odd person complaining you've ruined the book and you shouldn't post spoilers uncoded in here, but if they haven't read the book and don't want to be spoiled, they shouldn't really be in here!
Please stop trying to change things. In threads about new books, it's the norm to put spoilers in spoiler tags no matter that the thread title does say (Spoilers!). It's been done that way for a long time and if you somehow manage to change that, you'll find more people leaving or not participating in the new book threads. So just leave well enough alone.

Okay, this needs to stop.

Point number 1: If someone chooses to put their remarks inside spoiler code they are perfectly at liberty to do that, even in a thread marked spoilers. it's their choice.

Point number 2: If a thread is marked spoilers in the title then it is allowed for spoilers to be discussed openly within the thread.

This is how it works. It might not be how it worked in the past but it's how it works now.

Both of you, JWolf and Dimesdan, need to get out of the habit of telling people what to do. It's not appreciated. You've both been asked to stop before, now you get an infraction for it.

This derailing of threads for discussions about spoilers needs to stop. There's the thread for spoiler discussion - take it there.
