Spoilers are hitting the net.

DO NOT POST THEM EVEN WITH SPOILER TAGS!!

No SPOILING!! Spoiling is Bad!!


If you spoil in a thread title we will do something icky. (don't know what yet as I have insomnia and am only one online IMO REALLY icky )



Keep this bumped please as no one tends to read stickies very well.

I got spoiled (a bit) and am feeling irritated. (about being spoiled)

I am bowing out of some of the HP threads due to this.

So, if we come across any spoilers for upcoming books or movies OTHER than Harry Potter, is it OK to post them without spoiler tags?

Well, the rampaging mob might be slightly smaller but I wouldn't try it.

Yeah, "something really icky" is now official terminology for the consequences of violating Books guidelines.

Just squint really hard so you can't quite read what it is... then click close really fast if you see something coming close!

Thank you, Abimommy!

I hate it when people post unofficial spoilers. It's one thing if JK tells us something, another if some security guard takes a bribe or something.

I have waited too long for this book to have it ruined!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I was reading an article in the paper this morning about how people are planning to wear headphones and the like while standing in line for their HP because of the rash of people driving past bookstores shouting out the ending of HBP.

This is my bump for this most auspicious thread.

Spoil this book for me, meathead, and I'll hunt you down and make you wish I knew how to do the Crucio curse.

This is why I plan to avoid any and all things Harry Potter ('net-wise...like mugglenet, etc....hell, even slashdot is dangerous right now) until I finish reading the book. Dude, that's just asking for punishment.

That was said tongue in cheek.

I was trying to say that places like mugglenet are full of folks who want to do nothing but discuss HP, and spoilers are naturally going to come up there.

Slashdot is an uber geek community (I can say that because my dh frequents it...) that posts spoilers frequently to pretty much everything they can.

Some of the Harry Potter Boards are being very strict about spoilers and not allowing them at all. You are less likely to find Harry Potter spoilers on some of those. Leaky got sent a spoiler and they reported them to the authorities.

I uh..got spoiled on a totally unrelated game forum on a totally innocuous
titled thread. :

It was horrible! I am SO MAD!

That might be a good idea, we (hopefully) won't have spoilers on here. But they are floating around.

Wanna hear something sad? I can't afford to BUY this book, so I signed up to have it on hold at the library- but I am not sure WHEN they will get it... so I will have to avoid the internet, tv, & people until who knows when. Poor Joe, he'll be the world's only 8 year old hermit.

[QUOTE=abimommy;8641642]Spoilers are hitting the net.QUOTE]

No spoilers, but I do have a question (and at the same time)
A while ago, someone "claimed" to have hacked into the publisher's database and read DH... Are these recent spoilers something new/different, other than the Gabriel (or what ever the hackers name is) spoilers, does anyone know?

These are book *scans* of the epilogue.

While trying to find out if they are fake, I also found they had scanned some of the first pages of different chapters to show the pics, they also have the table of contents with all the chapter titles listed.

I am hoping it was just fanfiction with some mad photoshop skills.

I did send a rather irritated email to Bloomsbury and the pics are off the image hosting website they were on. (I tattle )

The Gabriel spoilers are on another thread here and they were made fun of, but this is way too spoiley for us to host.

OH NO!! Ugh- better call hubby at work and warn him to stay off the computer while at work. He's the one who read the Gabriel spoilers and told me about them... I wanted to cry, so I'm really, really hoping those were fake. If he reads these scans and tells me (or even HINTS) what happens, I'll have to Avada Kedavra him!

I would totally avada him.

I can't even play in several of the threads anymore. : tell him NOT to look or NOT tell you if he does.

OK, got the warning into DH. He tried to find spoilers on mugglenet and bloomsbury but couldn't find them, he thinks I'm lying. I hope he only trys to find them on "official" HP websites, so they will not be there. I swears not to spoil me. He says he still feels bad about the other spoilers

Well, tell him not to look.

IMO, the "epilogue scans" could be fake, very very easily.

But some libraries and bookstores will be getting them so we need to be more careful from here on out.

I'd be so mad if I went to pick up my book and someone shouted out spoilers. I think that I will pick up the book, rush home, and then not put the computer (tv, radio) on until I'm done reading.

Well dang. That sucks. Don't tell me what you heard.

That's why I mentioned places like slashdot. I can totally see spoilers out there.

What really annoys me is that JKR isn't giving out as many hints as last time.

I remember, pre-HBP, she had the door on her website unlocked, the "do not disturb" sign taken down, and she gave us a few teasers; a handful of chapter titles, a physical description of a new character (Rufeus Scrumgeour, but we didnt' know that at the time.) Why hasn't she done ANY of that for this book?

Maybe she doesn't want to confirm anything that's floating around.

One of the reasons I'm NOT going to a bookstore party is because I don't want to be spoiled. I can totally see someone shouting out the ending after they get their book and I don't want to chance it.

The kids are spending the night at MIL's and DH and I are going to see OOTP. We may stop by Barnes and Noble WELL before midnight to catch the madness a bit. But I'm going to a regular store Saturday morning to pick mine up. I'm 6mo pg and don't think I can stay up reading all night!

i'm going to have to hermit up if i want to stay unspoiled too! i've toyed around with purposely looking for spoilers so i can read without mania, but i've decided against that now.

spoilers are wrong. just wrong. what is with people who would shout out the ending of the book to people waiting?
