Spoiler Policy

Pop culture

Since I'm trying to write about all the books I read and movies I see this year, and also tending toward writing about TV shows as I have something to say about a specific issue rather than reviewing each episode, I thought it was time to revisit my spoiler policy and make sure everyone knows what they're getting into.

TV: I know this can be an unpopular opinion, but if it's aired, it's not a spoiler and I won't label it as such. If you're reading things about a show that you're not caught up on, you're reading at your own risk. On the other hand, if I'm mentioning leaked information about something that hasn't aired yet - and I don't usually do that, but I suppose I might - I will definitely label it as a spoiler.

Books: Since I'm often reviewing books to advise you on whether to read them, I'll avoid giving away big twists at the ends - especially on things like mysteries. (I assume you know how romances end.) But if you really don't want to know anything about the plot of a book, don't read my review.

Movies: If I'm going to give away the end of a movie currently in the theaters, I'll warn you. Older movies are fair game.

That seems like an eminently sensible spoiler plan. Damien (?) at TWOP had a hilarious spoiler post - he ended up "spoiling" MacBeth, Casablanca, etc. If it's aired, it's out there. The fact that you haven't seen it yet is hardly common knowledge.
