As someone that has been slapped down by the Adsense Policy team, there's no reason to "purge" pages from TV Tropes, you simply make those pages ad-free. They're identifying pages one by one, they certainly could just code up a way to strip... [more]

Yeah, and I forgot to say, we could set up "rooms" in chat (there's just one general default room to Chat currently) for each show, if people want to have fun live blogging that way. We could even figure out how to link to... [more]

In that case, another suggestion: spoiler accordions/hide tags/whatever they're called. Instead of a technical solution, we thought this could be done with social pressure. Here's the line of thinking on it: - No spoilers... [more]

On spoilers, I think the GoT readers are getting frustrated, but I've been in a similar position myself before and I think it's a pretty easy line to draw. I read all the Hunger Games books (on a friend's recommendation) back to back before... [more]
