Tam said: Perhaps a compromise could be to have a dedicated post in the Facebook group for spoilers, per issue. Something like a picture of the cover, SPOILERS BELOW in big text, and people can post all their discussion there for the week. Then people can still kind of follow the group and fairly easily avoid getting spoilers if they can't get the issue right away, but also Dark Horse can see more easily just how many people are really talking about it.
That is the current process, for the first week. After that discussion is open without spoiler warnings. But the problem with Facebook, unlike a forum structure, is that it might show you posts or comments in posts in your feed, without you actually going to the page and actively clicking on discussions. But generally, people don't post there too much about the new issue in the first week, even with spoiler warnings.
