Re: Wait and see

To me, the gold standard for spoilers remains this link: http://preview.tinyurl.com/p32jdkw.

For those unwilling to click the link (sadly, the direct link also spoils it), a hugely popular show was airing its' last several episodes, each of which addressed the final fate of one or more characters. So someone on the east coast saw an episode, promptly wrote up the above review, and posted it to Slashdot. The subject title gave away the major plot point, before the episode had even aired on the west coast, let alone non-American markets. Sort of like having an Citizen Kane review titled "Kane's only love was his sled, Rosebud". Bonus points for the clueless author claiming people who didn't want it spoiled shouldn't read the review.
