Discussion of spoilers has come up in the EQ Facebook Fan Group and wanted to share this thought that I posted there: I'm in several other groups where they only require spoiler alerts for 48 hours. A week is a REALLY long time, especially since anyone, anywhere in the world can get the book instantly via Dark Horse Digital if they choose. And consider this - even a week-long spoiler period stifles online conversation at the exact time that the buzz about the newest issue should be highest. Today, properties are judged by the explosion of social media conversation that happens immediately upon release of an issue, episode, premiere, etc. The overly generous spoiler period of a week could actually be hurting EQ in terms of showing Dark Horse and the larger entertainment media the actual interest in it.
