1. Events in headlines, results in the body of the thread only.

3. Digging back through ancient threads, it seems something

like listing the event along with a clear spoiler warning in the subject, and then putting the result in the message body, was standard.

Probably should be some expiration to that - maybe talk freely the day after something has happened, I guess...

5. Can you spoil for me: When do the Olympics start?

Is it this month, or not until February? I haven't been keeping up.

7. At, like 1 AM east coast time.

 

It's getting on toward noon at the venue by 3 AM, so it's a long delay between event times and evening broadcasts.

9. I'm still pissed at my dad for spoiling the 1980 US-USSR hockey results for me.

He heard the score on his shortwave radio and told me hours before the game aired on TV in the States.
