This morning as I scanned through all the Facebook status updates I'd missed since going to bed at 8:30 PM, I discovered sitting there, unassuming, nestled between somebody's baby dressed as Rudolph and a complaint about the Metra, the ENDING OF THE SECOND SEASON OF BOARDWALK EMPIRE all spelled out-like.
No SPOILER ALERT, no apologies, just "Here's what happened on that show you weren't able to watch yet that aired just a few minutes ago."
I think we can all agree that it's not OK to post spoilers on Facebook or Twitter immediately after the show airs (at least not without a gigantic WARNING posted before it).
But how soon is too soon to casually mention spoilers without first warning someone? Can I talk about how (OMG HUGE SPOILER COMING UP RIGHT NOW) Ned Stark was about a foot shorter at the end of Season 1 of Game of Thrones than he was at the beginning? Is it OK to talk about the end of The Sopranos willy-nilly? What about The Sixth Sense? Citizen Kane?
What SPOILER code do you live by?
