well, that was irritating

Right. Small rant.



SPOILERS IN CASE YOU MISSED THE CUT TAG FOR TORCHWOOD.

You know, I have tried to figure out how to frame this without coming off as entitled, then I stopped.

So thanks to wank-report and a surprising number of uncut entries, I knew the plot before five finished airing. I--have never ever had feelings on mood spoilers. I'm kind of revising that opinion en toto. Because the thing is? OMG IANTO! followed by THIS IS HORRIBLE above a cut tag is a goddamn spoiler. You are not being subtle or non-spoilery. There was enough on my flist uncut alone that I knew or could guess all the major plot points before five finished airing no matter how many vague words were used, which I suspect was the point. I'm not even sure half of what I saw could classify as a mood spoiler, and it's not like I don't know how to avoid spoilers--this was my flist and at least two places where someone leaped and screamed without a spoiler warning at all in an unrelated post.

I am not crying into my Dr. Pepper or anything about my fannish experience being ruined, but seriously. Your journal, your rules. That doesn't make it any less frustrating, tbh, and a little disappointing. This isn't a show I can watch in real time to keep up, so it's not like I'm asking for a year and a day to get around to it at my leisure. I'm watching as quickly as I can during a workweek where I depend on downloads that occur after ten o'clock at night and varying download speeds.

I get this was a huge sacred cow of sacredness being shot and fandom got hit unexpectedly by that. Fine. Everyone is entitled to not-cut anything they want. I am entitled to be unhappy that I can tell you the entire plotline by uncut mood spoilers.



You can ignore this. This is possibly why I made sure I got the Harry Potter books the day they were released.
