How mean

BondJayneBond Sun 13-Dec-15 09:37:51

YANBU times about a million.

I am also angry about the Apprentice thread - clicked on Threads I'm On, and there it is at the top "Spoiler! XXX will win" (or something like that. I'm not looking again to check exact wording).

FFS. What's even the point in putting "spoiler" if it's impossible to avoid seeing the spoilery information?

Why can't people start a new thread instead and title it something like "Massive spoiler thread about The Apprentice / Strictly / whatever, don't open this thread unless you want to know who wins before it airs"

So who is going to win strictly x factor apprentice in the jungle in ice then?

ArmyDad I'm a Celebrity finished last week and Dancing on Ice has been axed. The other 3 nobody wants to know the results until the shows are aired.

I always read the spoiler thread for strictly every week
I wouldn't dream of posting it on the strictly thread

Posting spoilers deliberately is the work of smug wankers. "See how clever I am with my inside info, only available to the super smart speshul few of us with access to the internet." Well done, dear, here is a new website of people who will think you all popular and sexy.

Sorry grammar in my post is shit
Hungover brain post Xmas work do

I went to the taping of Apprentice - You're Fired a couple of weeks ago, and they expect the audience to keep the result secret. IMO it's more fun to be smug and tap the side of your nose in an "I know something you don't" fashion than to spill the beans.

To be fair, I'm not entirely sure that either of those is a spoiler. The reasons why it's unlikely for The Apprentice one are explained on the thread. For the Strictly one, it didn't particularly look as if the poster concerned necessarily had time to find and read the spoiler thread, and she could have been teasing.

But if it turns out that they really are spoilers then I agree, unless they have a pretty good explanation they should. at the very least, be suspended till the relevant series is over.

To be fair the Strictly one was a very limited spoiler. It ruled out one extremely implausible possibility and that's all. I don't know whether it was someone genuinely clueless or a deliberate troublemaker.

However I agree that it's extremely bad form to spoil, or drop hints. Something like the Strictly spoiler should be dealt with on a two strikes and you're out basis but I think if the Apprentice was a straight "X wins" spoiler with no mitigating factor then yes it's a banning offence for ruining many other people's enjoyment. In addition although it's not a violation of the rules, it's still bad manners to post actual spoiler links because it makes Maryz unhappy for no net benefit to anybody else.

Sparklingbrook, something tells me ArmyDad was joking and that that was a made-up programme title.

Sparklingbrook Sun 13-Dec-15 09:52:57

Hilarious. confused

Someone spoilt the end of Breaking Bad for me, although to be fair I'm still only on series 3 and with 2 young kiddies so fuck all spare time I will probably never finish it!!

Samcro Sun 13-Dec-15 09:58:50

you are so not BU
I was lucky I only saw someone comment about it on the strictly thread, didn't see the spoiler and have now hidden the thread, you have got to be some kind of shithead to do it.
