Please do. A lot of todays thread are spoilerific and that's cool and all, but for the benefit of those of us who haven't had the chance to watch a given show yet, please could we start putting some sort of tag in the thread title that that points out if spoilers are being discussed?

Cheers. .

What exactly did you think was being spoiled again?

If you're worried about RAW being spoiled, then you should probably turn the computer off while RAW is on.

Raw and Smackdown being spoiled is what I'm on about. I'm English, and I'm asleep when you guys are watching Raw . I don't get Raw until Friday or Smackdown until Saturday, so I avoid the talk about match results and participate in the opinion type threads instead. Usually it's easy to avoid the spoilers because the threads are called things like "This weeks RAW thread" but today it wasn't so clear. I meant to be poilte, though, didn't it come across that way? Apologies if it didn't.

I'm not gonna ask people to mark threads "Spoiler" because the show hasn't aired in the UK yet. C'mon.

You don't have to ask. Qubber already did.

I'm really not asking you to do anything, CRZ. I was asking the regular users and if they don't want to do it they don't have to.

I was assuming there were more non-American posters out there than just me who might appreciate titles that address the content of the thread.

If thats me being unreasonable then, honestly, I'm sorry. I didn't realise it came off that way at all.

In theory it sounds like a good idea -- until you start to imagine how it would look in practice.

Assuming that people marked spoiler in threads about RAW, which would in fact not be a spoiler for 90% of the readers, then the tag spoiler would really just become something to ignore. We would need a new tag to indicate something that would actually be spoiler, such as Tuesday taping results for Smackdown. Something like Uber-spoiler. That's just kind of silly.

Also, you would have to have Spoiler in just about every thread that is started on a Tuesday... So.

It's not viable. Some things have to bow to the majority.

It wouldn't have to include the word "Spoiler" though, I think I'm coming across a little too literally here. I just meant a tag that address the content of a thread, say by just adding "on Raw" to the end of a thread title if thats what it's about. That wouldn't just benefit non-American posters, but also anyone who hasn't watched the show by Tuesday in the States also.

Anyway, you are correct in that it's pointless if it's a 90% American audience here, Guru, (I assumed it was less so, my bad) and I'm beating the proverbial dead donkey now, so I'll shut up. .

Agreed, he's doing fine. Anyone who hasn't seen his acrobatic unrealistic wrestling stunts wouldn't be thinking he sucks. He's playing the cards given to him right now. He has the talent.
