i wrote something quite specific about the sort of thing that i enjoy, and asked people to be careful about that when commenting, so that sort of thing wouldn't be spoiled for me. it took about an hour from my post to the first person doing precisely the thing i specifically asked you not do. that's quite a record of cluelessness for my flist, and i gotta say, i am astounded. i didn't think i needed more explicit rules here. but better safe than sorry again, so this is now a hard rule:
if you feel moved to comment, make damn sure that you're not commenting with anything, ANYTHING that happens in the show after the episode i am currently watching. most important is general philosophy and show strategy. but this now also includes plot spoilers, since it's maybe too hard for some people to tell one from the other. i don't want to hear about it, any of it.
if you are not sure which episode i'm at, ask, don't assume. as of today it is season 2 episode 7: "home part II". i watch in chunks, so don't extrapolate. i'll try to remember to add it to my posts. if you're not sure whether what you want to talk about is about something i've already seen or thought about, ask circumspectly first. if you're not sure and find it too much effort to check (wouldn't blame ya; it's just a tv show), i don't need to hear it yet.
please restrain general philosophy comments to season 1. if you want to share with me what you think about season 2 in general, please wait until i post about that. if you've had insights into something that has becomes clear to you as you went further into the series, unless i've touched on it, or have explicitly invited commentary, please don't tell me. if you've heard something through the podcasts or the wiki, save it for later; i am avoiding those because they're spoilery to me. my processing will lag for a while because i am watching a lot at once and then noodle about it. again, if you are not sure, just don't.
man, i hate to be anal about this, but i don't often watch something that i have this much fun with, and i don't think it's too much to ask for people to be just a little careful in the comments of my own LJ. i can take care of it myself with other people's LJ's, and i am not asking anyone to filter or cut. just that here, you watch what you say for now. i should be caught up to the current season in a couple of weeks, and then it's all free game.
