So yesterday I wrote a very last minute post about last night’s episode of 24 that divulged what happened in the first 15 minutes of the show. This morning I awoke to a comment from someone admonishing me for the inadvertant spoiler. What I realized as I rode the train in is that people actually read this thing and that means I have some sort of responsibility. What the hell?
When you write thinking no one is reading, you can say what the hell you want – not worrying about feelings or in this case, spoiling a night’s good tv. Alwayswrite wrote something similar on her blog awhile back and I find it interesting that here I am in a similar situation.
Do I censor? Do I care?
In the end I want people to read this blog, but I also loathe censoring myself. I do remember avoiding all press, blogs, etc. while reading the last Harry Potter due to the fear that the end would be spoiled for me. How could I ever do that to someone else? So I will take care not to spoil things for others, but I will not refrain from discussing them.
A rather fine line don’t you think?
