Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Sun Feb 3, 2013, 01:45 PM

 

Please do not post Superbowl results in the subject line. It's a courtesy thing.

Some people have to work or live their lives and are counting in watching The Big Game later, so please don't ruin it for them.

1. Current score: 0-0

Likely to stay that way for a while.

3. Still 0-0...

I'll bet you almost any amount that you will know the final score before you watch the game later. Unless you work in a cave or something, someone's going to tell you the score. Will that ruin the game for you?

If the final score is the only thing that interests you, just tune in for the last five minutes. Skip all those boring plays and stuff.

8. Do you get some perverse satisfaction in screwing up other people's day?

 

Is it too much to ask for simple courtesy?

6. If you don't want to know the outcome avoid the internet altogether

I certainly won't be posting anything as I won't even be watching the game, but the chances that no one else is going to post about who won are less than zero, it will be posted here guaranteed. If you want to avoid spoilers on such a widely talked about event then you really need to go out of your way to avoid them, because I guarantee that not everyone is going to be quiet about this. I personally wish they would be because I find football incredibly lame, but lots of people disagree with me on that.

7. Like you, I don't care. I simply posted this as a reminder. On many boards, this kind of

 

courtesy is expected from its members and violating it will get you immediately and permanently banned.

DU likes to project an image of quality and reason, so I just thought a reminder would be appropriate. To me, the whole purpose of DU is to create a community where we are somewhat insulated from the pandemic of crazy that rules much of the rest of the internetz. Isn't that why we are have so many restrictions?

10. ultimately, a stupor bowl score has no bearing whatsoever on anything of significance.

17. I am always astounded at the number of people who post spoilers for no other reason ...

than pure spite. And then they defend their behavior! Kind of sad, really.

19. Really sad. It just says so much about us that there are enough of them that they have no fear

 

of being identified as being that kind of person. So many think of being that way as some kind of honor.

18. Count on this thread being pushed to the Page 3 behind all of the Super Bowl Results.

I would suggest you stay off DU tonight and avoid most social media, and the internet all together. Don't forget to have you TV channel tuned to the local weather channel and make sure you do not have the radio on.

Best of luck tonight!
