Recently, as in today, someone left a huge spoiler on one of my reviews that pretty much told me the ending to a whole trilogy I've been reading, and it really upset me.
In all of my reviews I try to be as spoiler-free as possible. I don't give any information away that the book description hasn't already. I do this because I personally hate spoilers. I know there's some weirdos out there that love them (I have a friend that actually Googles spoilers), but for me, it ruins the whole book/ series. When I'm reading a book, I check out of reality for a while to go some place else. But when I know about something that happens in the book, I start to anticipate it, or dread it, or whatever- and it pulls me out of the book's world.
I won't even read certain blog reviews because I know in the past they contain small spoilers. When I'm reading, I want the book to be all crisp and new to me. I want each page to be a surprise.
Really, it's just a douche thing to do when you say "Hey, did you know that at the end of Deathly Hollows, Harry just dreamed all of that?!"Okay, obviously that is a lie, but you get my point.
Don't be a douche- use spoiler tags: ***SPOILER***
