    You do realize you are a member of a forum dedicated to the company that invented the DVR, right?

    I thought the butler did it.

    I always kid my wife about some of the cop shows she watches. "They caught the bad guy" or "They got their just desserts."

    I have found when I accidently have read spoilers that I still enjoy the show. The miracle was that I did not know about the movie where the kid sees dead people until I saw it probably a year after it was shown in theaters.

    True, but again, you make your choice, you take your chances in today's online world.

    The article isn't about spoilers in TiVo Community Forum. It's about spoilers anywhere

    I think within a week, the spoiler should NOT be in the headline of a news article

    That would solve like 90% of it.

    Like others have said.

    Here it should be longer
