    Just a question in general for The Bar, I know it's not a life or death question, but it does suck when you've invested time into a TV show, or are planning to see a movie. Obviously people who do it are attention whores with no life or friends, but as a community should there be a punishment? If so what should it be?

    I think it is the ultimate ooh ooh look at me move.
    Some people need attention negative or positive.

    I think anyone who reveals anything about a book, show, movie, etc. should be punished unless they label it as a spoiler.

    I assume the Cookie Brown thread is a spoiler. It's not fun or funny in any way.

    Sipawitz did it after the Breaking Bad series finale, so yes it's a bitch move. How should they be punished? should we ask the Mods?

    Don't go on the internet where people discuss things if you don't want spoilers.

    The rest of the world isn't on your schedule and isn't waiting breathlessly for you to catch up.

    I'm traveling and haven't seen it yet, but did dvr it. It's a spoiler. You're getting banned and your wife is a herpes infested whore.
