Not to beat a dead horse here, but I think the spoiler alert could be done a bit better.

SPOILER ALERT! Insert thing to ruin people's enjoyment of the show.

Isn't that adequate. How many people just stopped reading at the end of the first sentence and didn't see any part of the beginning or perhaps caught some of the end while reading the sentence above it?

Might I suggest:

SPOILER ALERT!




Spoilers here...

The added space makes it hard to inadvertently read stuff you'd rather avoid. Just my 2c and maybe my eyes wander to much while I'm reading...

Not to be a jerk or continue beating our dead horse but this whole thread could be considered a spoiler, I don't read updates unless I'm up to date on the show.

Get back to watching some Zombie bashing/slashing/capping so you're up to date!

Any normal person should understand not to post Spoilers regardless if there is an alert before it or not. Someone could quote it or you could accidentally read it when browsing. No one wants to skip around the thread because somebody is proud they read a comic book and know "what really happened in the comics". Suggesting those who only watch the show are missing out on the incredible comic book experience.

I definitely don't read this thread until I watch the show. If you had to put spoiler up for everything that happened in the show most of the posts in this thread would need the tag.

I'm talking about people posting about stuff in the comics that may or may not happen in the show.

Thats a perfectly rational request I agree, I really like the white text idea too.

How about just not talking about what has not happened in the show yet?

Once it happens in the show it's fair game.

That is a perfectly rational request

Hey, does anyone remember the African American woman (totally forgot her name) who opted to get blown up and the rest of the group basically said "ok have fun with that?" Anyone? Hell even Dale, the closest thing they had to a moral compass went back and begged ANDREA to save herself... the "also ran" woman didnt even get a bro-grab or an insincere goodbye.

This show really is tough on the ladies. They are either dumb, expendable, annoying, naive or just kind of there... or Michonne.

And another complaint... they make me wait so long before the next season or the next "mid-season" (whoever thought that up should be tied to a majestic northern fir tree and pelted with water balloons full of female grizzly bear urine) that I forget about it until someone here tells me that they just saw the newest episode. I havent gone into a single season or mid-frigging-season NOT knowing what happened.

At least we only have to wait a couple months. Breaking Bad's break is a full year. Why had a mid season break if it lasts a full year. Wouldn't that be a new season?

Battlestar Galactica took a few ridiculously long breaks. Sopranos did too. I hate when shows do that, especially nowadays where most shows have continuing story lines rather than the sitcom format.
