(SPOILER) TV Guide: New Angel Comic Goes to Hell. I just thought that it was neat that the new Angel comic gets mentioned; the story has a link and a picture on the home page!

I don't have a problem with it(cause I'm already spoiled) but your title is a spoiler too....
Wow - TVguide - thats great!
MAJOR EFFING SPOILERS!!!

I'd suggest maybe changing the description to reflect that. This blurb reveals way more than other stuff has, including characters who show up and other plot points. I sorta wish I hadn't read it, because I'm pretty sure it spoils the surprise ending that was hinted at in other articles.

The term "Spoiler" has degraded so much on this site that I sorta stopped taking the tag seriously. I don't consider issue solicitations or stuff that writers purposely reveal in interviews to be "spoilers" because they're obviously comfortable with the info being out there. To me, "Spoilers" indicates stuff that the writers don't want revealed yet, that get leaked by accident or inside sources, "spoiling" the story that the writers have tried to keep under wraps. Even trailers for non-fandom movies are being tagged with "Spoilers" now, and that seems silly.

But this article actually does include information about things that writers have been careful not to reveal in other interviews. So beware, anyone who reads the comments before clicking on the link.

Yeah, I think I'll just wait until I've bought the comic tomorrow to read that article.
Some of the spoilers are wrong though, so you can consider reading that a fun game.
Hah, okay. Thanks for the clarification, Brian. Can't wait to read the genuine issue!

Trouble is other posters aren't comfortable with reading the spoilers that writers reveal. So that's why the spoiler tag gets used.
Thanks for the clarification Brian!

I had a friend who went to the Serenity preview screenings and announced a bunch of fake spoilers for that loudly, which was a hoot. (My favourite: "Zoe is pregnant, and Wash isn't the father.") She did the same thing with The Deathly Hallows. I'm wondering if TV Guide got the same idea? (Nah.)
