13. if it was that important
how realistic was it for you to be online (on a discussion board that often relays topical/newsworthy/current events related information) or exposed yourself to any information channels that deliver content from the outside world?

if it was that important.

maybe you should have sat in the closet until after your godson left.

15. some people know what spoiler alerts are
and some don't. I learned the hard way the one and only time I posted a spoiler in the subject line. And it was the day after a show aired.

Just sayin'- people should be considerate when posting this kind of stuff.

16. i never understood the whole "spoiler" thing
it seems unrealistic to expect other people to shield me from information.

IF it were that important to me, i would shut information content delivery systems down and go walk in the woods.

18. well, I live on the west coast, and have had lots of results spoiled
if people would just be considerate of those not in their time zone, it would be a little nicer. Most people are, but some just get overenthusiastic I guess.

But I shouldn't have to not be at my computer because someone might post the results. That's just dumb.

20. The results of the race were on my homepage when I logged on 5 minutes after the race
If you go online before watching the race you recorded, be prepared to get your buzz killed. Just a fact, not saying it's fair or even smart, it's just the way it is...

24. I was already online. Hey, I'm just saying people need to remember everyone isn't watching things...
...at the same time they are. There is a GD thread that is only titled "Riders Up" and I avoided that, knowing the results would be in there.

Just have a little consideration is all I ask.

25. when east coast sees something 3 hrs before west coast
Edited on Sat May-02-09 07:49 PM by DeepBlueC
A spoiler alert is considerate, but for a live sporting event, I don't see it. We'd have to issue spoiler alerts for everything because someone might TIVO it to watch days later and that is too much to expect. Recording it was your choice.

26. nbcsports.com has the video
http://nbcsports.msnbc.com/id/30538272

A 50-1 shot surging from last place on the stretch run to win by six lengths? You've got to be kidding me.
