(Video Link)

Navigating the internet without being exposed to spoilers can sometimes seem like an impossible mission, especially if you’re a passionate fan who genuinely hates to have your favorite media ruined for you by uncaring users/article writers.

So what actually constitutes a spoiler? Are some people being a bit too touchy about spoilers, or do they have a valid argument?

Screen Junkies host Hal Rudnick tackles this touchy subject with the help of actor Steve Byrne, journalist Devin Faraci, and Screen Junkies own Dan Murrell.

They discuss spoiler boundaries and try to put together a "spoiler bill of rights", tune in and see if you agree with their spoiler rules.

I agree. Though I make an exception for Game of Thrones. I don't edit myself while talking about it, because the books have been out for long enough that there really isn't any excuse for not reading them.

I agree with a lot of what they said.

I sometimes watch TV shows online that are from other countries, and if I am able to watch it before the general US population I am pretty cautious about what I say, or who I say it to.

The worst case of spoiler-entitlement whining I ever witnessed was someone who hadn't watched the second season of a show that was currently airing the FOURTH season. You don't go on a site for discussing a show you haven't caught up on and then blast people for "spoiling" something that aired two years ago. Really.

The two weeks/two days rule seems like a common sense rule for general internet. For sites dedicated to discussing the show, there's usually a dedicated discussion thread with "SPOILER ALERT" as the subject heading, and you don't go there until you've watched, simple as that.
