Stop the Spoilers!

Just a reminder... for me and Ty as much as for you folks...

With the HBO series scheduled to debut on April 17, a lot of new people may be finding their way here. People who have seen the show, but have never read the books.

With that in mind, I think we have to put a lid on all spoilers in the comments (and for that matter, in my own posts). Yes, I know that GAME OF THRONES was published fifteen years ago... but for those who have not read it, it will be brand new, and I want some of the twists and turns and deaths in the book to come as a surprise to new readers in 2011, just as they did for my original readership in 1996.

I have not been consistent about this in the past, I know, even the very recent past... but from this point on, Ty and I are going to try and be more vigilant. All comments that include even glancing references to deaths, maimings, and major plot twists will henceforth be removed without posting. I respectfully request your understanding and cooperation.

Thanks.

Actually
There was recently an interview with the two head guys in HBO, it was mostly about Boardwalk Empire but still they were asked about the cancellation of shows such as Rome and their response was something to the effect of "That was before we were here. We intend to let a show run it's course. We end a show when the creator feels it's time." They gave Entourage as an example, saying that financially it would have been wise to continue running it, but the creator felt it was done.
They sounded very passionate about letting artists create their visions (and also very passionate about GoT =D )
