Just a little request...  
Due to my computer being evil...

Will it be too much to ask if you guys could refrain from any spoilers?

:knows about lj cuts but really would not like to know what's gonna happen: >>;;

:is also a lurker: :asks for everyone to at least wait a week or even just have a week:

>> << >>

:ducks tomatoes:

Asking a community with over a thousand members to refrain from spoilers is like commanding the sun to stand still--it just ain't gonna happen.

Spoilers should be kept behind LJ-cuts, I agree, but mistakes do happen. I've been spoiled in such a manner before, and I find that if you're seriously worried about being spoiled, the safest thing to do is remove the community from your friends list until you're caught up/have seen the current episode/no longer care about spoilers/whatever.

I confess to not quite being certain of whether you're asking for spoilers only behind LJ-cuts, or no spoiler entries at all. If it's the former, I agree that it's a reasonable request, but things will slip through the cracks...if the latter, it's unreasonable to ask 1100 people to not post on something for a week because of one person.

Just don't look under the LJ-cut then. :o That's what I do. And if people accidentally forgot, then tell them nicely. JUST DON'T READ IT, lol. XD

And I meant this that it's going to be so hard to tell people to stop. This community is just way too active, hehe.

Um, yeah, ditto to all of them and... not to be a bitch, but could you credit me in the keywords for my icon you're using (the Gluttony Hat one)? ^^;;;

Really sorry you're getting spoilered though. I understand it's hard to not read >>; I'm constantly spoiling things for myself because I just HAVE to click that link, or just HAVE to highlight that whited-out text. Be strong! Resist!

i know the feeling, but maybe u should keep away until u catch up. everytime i came to this community i'd run into a spoiler, [EVEN CHARACTER DEATHS!!!!] so i just peeked every once and a while, until i finally caught up.

though i do believe that communities should lj cut spoilers for say, the last three episodes or chapters for something [and obvious spoilers like deaths, plot twists and ect], just cuz its courteous towards other members with slower computers. but cutting every spoiling detail is just impossible, and for newbies it's just something u have to be super evasive about. ^^ good luck with the spoiler dodging :D

I refrained from joining this community until I caught up for just that reason. It was a good course of action for me and now I'm happy, spoil-free, and waiting with everyone here for the next part. ^.^

LJ-cuts don't stop me from spoiling an episode....but that's because i'm so bloody curious....I CAN'T HELP IT *dies*

But, irismergin is right, its like...stopping the sun or even *thinks up a whitty analogy* its like stopping time, you just can't do that (or you know, if you're Sailor Pluto...yeah...okay that just killed my analogy. Go with iris's its better XP *pats*)

Just stay away from topics like 'OMG Episode x' or topics with cuts that go 'Something I noticed about episode X' or 'A theory...regarding episode/chapter X'. =3

I never visit this community after a new raw episode release until I catch the sub because I just know everyone and their dog will be talking about something and some people are too careless excited to use cuts. Also like shinraisei, I can be a spoiler whore and I truly fear spoilage with this series (already spoiled myself for Wolf's Rain when the final eps were coming out) so I avoid temptation by keeping my distance from the community until I'm ready to discuss or at least read theories.
