I just wanted to pop by and remind you all of something.
The new movie comes out in about three weeks. The book in about a month. We're coming down to the wire, and I just want to put it out here right now. And I'm saying it big, loud, and red...
IF YOU POST ANY SPOILERS AT ALL IN THE NEXT MONTH WITHOUT ANY WARNINGS OR WITHOUT PUTTING IT BEHIND A LJ CUT, YOU WILL BE BANNED FROM THE COMMUNITY. NOT JUST REMOVED FROM THE COMM AND ABLE TO POST AGAIN. BANNED.
If you DO put a spoiler up without a warning and a cut tag, you will have five minutes from your posting time to fix that post accordingly, or you WILL be banned. No exceptions.
I don't want to be spoiled like I was for the last book, and I don't want any of you to be either. If I were you, especially in the final days before the book comes out, I would remove your HP communities from your friends lists. There are rude and evil people out there that go around posting spoilers just for the sheer joy of knowing they've spoiled something for someone else.
Once the movie and/or book are out, all posts regarding either should still include warnings and cuts for at least two months. I don't want to see mention of who dies or what happens in open posts until at least mid-to-late September. Posts without warnings/cuts will be deleted and the poster will be banned.
Be careful, everyone! Not everyone is as nice as we all are.
