So Wired is literally spoiling Game of Thrones in its headlines.

@Gargron Washington Post has an article headlined "Who dies in ‘Avengers: Endgame’? Here are the four biggest spoilers" so you can read it and spoil it for OTHER PEOPLE without the hassle of seeing the movie yourself. 😡

@gamehawk I mean, how do you deal with that? Why do they think it is okay to do that? So frustrating

@Gargron @gamehawk So I logged in and saw this and was all "YEAH, FUCK THAT GUY" and I don't even know who you're talking about

@ivanvector @Gargron I don't either so he may have been joking but overall there are a lot of people going "I plan to livetweet spoilers, mute or unfollow if you need to" which is interesting... I mean, it's different from a movie release where by necessity people will be seeing it over the course of a couple weeks, but still... isn't the US west coast GoT time-delayed, never mind international watching?

@gamehawk @Gargron I would think, if it's so important to you to not learn these spoilers before seeing the film, that you'd take the initiative yourself to avoid all personal contact. To me, the art is in the discussion, and if the culture is that you can't even talk about it, what's even the point?

I haven't seen GoT at all and the toxic fan culture has taken me right out of the MCU series of films. I just can't be bothered, there's too much GOOD art.


@gamehawk @Gargron That being said, I've heard there are birdsite accounts dedicated to tweeting Avengers spoilers at alt-right trolls, and that I am here for. That's art we can all enjoy.
