Spoilers suck. A lot. Generally, I'm out-of-touch with popular culture to the point that I really don't care. The only movies I tend to go to are the Star Wars, Star Trek, Lord Of The Rings, and Harry Potter movies, and a bunch of small-release stuff. Of those, I have few enough friends in the Star Trek fandom that I don't have spoiler problems, the Star Wars movies I only go to out of some perverse desire to see how bad they are, and the other two I've read the books for and thus don't worry about spoilers. Generally, I read books that are unpopular enough that others don't feel the need to discuss them outside of fannish circles. Some of them are unpopular enough that I've had trouble finding fannish circles to discuss them in, which is a neat trick. That all being said, I'm planning to read the next Harry Potter book.
Anyone who posts spoilers for Harry Potter 5 without placing them behind a clearly-labeled <lj-cut> tag will be subjected to any combination of defriending, rude comments, public vilification and flying munkeys I feel capable of at the moment.
We now return you to your regularly scheduled ramblings.
