The use of spoiler warnings

I put some definite Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince spoilers in posts the other day, and didn’t use spoiler warnings. Now, this is a journal, wherein I write about how I’m feeling. I (mostly) tried to be vague in the actual posts, but I went into some serious detail in the comments. At the time, I thought I was being fair, and didn’t really see a problem. It’s not like I was going around to other people’s websites and posting the biggest spoiler of all on an unrelated post where everyone would see it, like some asshole did on Websnark. (Don’t click that link if you don’t want to know!)

However, Simon’s latest post rather shockingly reminded me that this is a public thing I’m doing here, and that I should have shown more consideration for casual readers.

So, if I spoiled anything for anyone, I apologize. I’ve gone back and added spoiler warnings to my post titles, where appropriate.
