Brain Go Boom Now

Poll: Warnings and Spoilers, To Show or Not To Show?

I've found I very much tend to be in the minority where it comes to my love of knowing what's going on ahead of time. I love spoilers, and think warnings for fanfics are the best thing since ratings. (And heck, now that I think about it, there are even some folks who refuse to rate their fic, and that's a whole other issue to think about!)

But a lot of people out there not only don't want to have the mystery ruined for them, they also get rather strident about anyone who does. So, poll. What's the limit? Where's the line between what's acceptabe to talk about, and what should be kept secret so as not to take away somebody else's enjoyment? And if it should be kept secret for those so inclined, what's the best way to go about it?

Take my poll and let me know what you think of these issues. Further comments and/or extrapolations will also be gratefully accepted.

Thank you!

Wolf -- m.f.p.

Bored now. :/

My car's gone in for a service check-up, so I'm stranded at work all day today. (Even though I'm only technically scheduled to work 'this morning' -- which is now past -- and 'this evening', with five plus hours of time to be wasted in between because I can't go any place! Eeeee!) Some of that time will obviously be spent playing online, so if anyone's around feel free to drop me a line. ;P

Also, a little reminder notice:

I posted a poll last night pretty late. It's about Spoilers and Story Warnings. I'd really appreciate it if everyone would take a few minutes to vote in it. I'm very interested in the results.
