But I'm not really worried about myself. I'm more concerned about others who have not yet read much or have a lot unread. It is unfair to divulge spoilers (out in the open) for books not part of the threads topic.
But posters are unlikely to do that if they're following the current guidelines. New
people might be ignorant of the rules, or on how to use spoiler tags but, if they goof it up, that's what the notify
button is for.
That would be like a thread about A Stitch in Time and someone posting open spoilers for The Crimson Shadow.
But "The Crimson Shadow" is a current book
, so such a spoiler without warning is already against the guidelines.
I thought the argument was more about about if people dropped spoilers about "A Stitch in Time" into the current discussion of "The Crimson Shadow"?
