@allyfally:  I think they had a point. Why would you want to ruin it for someone else?

 Couldn ‘t you just say you enjoyed it?

I think it’s due to the lack of spoiler alert like these people would not have realised they were going to read a spoiler until too late, no choice as it shows up in their news feed automatically. It wouldn’t really bug me as I don’t care about spoilers as I like to watch things for myself even if i know endings already but if I did this or saw it happen I would expect the same reaction

 

I know on redditt and sites like that you get flamed for posting spoilers without a warning

Edit due to stupid autocorrect

No spoilers until at least three days after airing. I’ve defriended people who post anything that night, since I can’t always see it the first airing.

@allyfally:  Ack.. I can see why they would get mad at that, to be honest. I’d certainly be annoyed if I went on facebook and someone posted a spoiler to, I dunno, Game of Thrones, when I haven’t watched the recent episode. 

I imagine you didn’t do it on purpose but it would’ve been considerate to others to say “spoiler alert” next time.

I always ALWAYS say spoiler alert if I’m posting anything about a TV show or book or movie that I think any of my friends might watch. Typically I’m just vague though and say “OMG the series finale of *show name*”

posting detailed spoilers is pretty inconsiderate.

I’d be mega pissed if someone spoiled anything from a show/book/movie/whatever that I hadn’t gotten a chance to experience yet.

Yeah, it’s your space to say whatever you want. But what you posted was a spoiler. You didn’t warn for spoilers, you didn’t pre-tag it as spoilers, so you spoiled it for some people. I don’t think they’re in the wrong here. I’d absolutely defriend people who did this.

Just post that your comment has spoilers next time.
