I've now had two people hit me with the major Harry Potter spoiler that's going around.  One via an e-mail with a link and no warning of what I was getting myself into, and one by posting it on her LJ with no cutting and, again, no warnings.

It got me to thinking about my whole spoiler phobia, and how I'm kind of a contradiction when it comes to that.  I download every movie trailer I can get my hands on, but I hate it when people inflict spoilers upon me.

But I think that's the difference.  When I watch a trailer, it's my decision to do so.  I'm the one who actively says "yes, I will check this out" or "nah, I'll skip that one."  When someone whose life I care about posts on their page with no warning, it's out of my hands.  The e-mail wasn't on the same scale, because I still had to click the link to get to it, but it still wouldn't have been much effort to give a word of warning.  One word is all it woulda taken.

Anyway, I reiterate my request that people try to be friendly to those of us who are spoilerphobes.

For the rest of you, here's the yahoo article with the Harry Potter spoiler about book 7 that everybody's talkin' about.
