What does spoiler mean to you?

I don’t like to call people out, but yes this a direct reference to the post, “Ttitles Tell the Tale”. If you dont want to be spoiled then please dont read it.
During seasons 4 and 5 I lived for all things spoiler related. But then I decided that I would try my hand at theories and felt that spoilers in a way would be cheating, and as of season 6 I have avoided them like the plague. I dont even watch the stupid little preview clips at the end of the show anymore. I dont want to know the titles and I dont want to know the centric character. I like to be surprised so I can enjoy this final ride.
I mean if you are a true Lost fan, then you have always known that the titles tell the tale, they give you clues and subtle meanings and even enforce a lot the themes that occur in Lost. Take for instance, White Rabbit, if one has read Alice in Wonderland, then one would think, maybe someone is chasing something that really isnt there but that something helps a person to find the starting point on the journey of self-discovery.
As for duality, meany titles have also had the reciprocal such as:
One of them v. One of us or The Constant v. The Variable.
Some titles give away centric info such as:
Everybody Hates Hugo
Born to Run (Kate runs)
The Long Con (Sawyer cons)
Another thing, this isnt a spoiler site at all, there is no easter egg section or a spoiler section, just theories, debate, questions and general chat, so what would possess someone to post something like that on here I have no idea but I guess the admin who runs this site didnt have a porblem with but I do and this is my little rant
So my question to you is this,
as the title states: What does spoiler mean to you?

Hi. I am an uber Lost fan. Admittedly, I jumped on the bandwagon a little late, halfway through the third season but thanks to the DVD's I am all caught up and do frequent re-watches. BTW my new image reflects my love/hate relationship with Lost. I always feel like I am on the verge of blowing up at the end of every episode because when I think I finally figured it out, nope the rug is pulled out.

  1. Anything that is from a future show…period.

    Titles, interviews regarding the future, CAST INFO!!!

    I told several people that I would probably stop posting about 5 episodes ago…and I continue on realizing that it is at least half the fun of Lost…spoilers are zero fun.

    The closest thing I have ever posted that even looked like a spoiler was saying that Jack had a child off island. I used it because I was watching Jack centric episodes, one after the other, and noticed the scene when Sarah and him talk about her NOT being pregnant in bed before they split…

    It couldnt have been more lucky that the next episode was about him and his son.
    I truly pictured a baby about the age of Charlie (Des and Pennys son) or younger…and actually expected him to be named Charlie (for very different reasons).

    I cant lie. I DID watch the previews at the end right up until ABC decided to show Jack smash up the mirrors in the lighthouse (Ill never forgive ABC for the spoiler).
    I knew Ricrdus was coming, everyone did, and wrote a theory on that (being WAAAAY off on anything involving Richard other than the obvious Black Rock thought).

    I hope people read your post…and NOT the one you list as I began to before realizing that the thread was not a theory on past titles, but new ones…
    No…thats not spoilerish…its a spoiler.

    I have come to accept that Im going to be told the next weeks episode title (either here or the box factory AND steer clear of any theories regarding them with the exception of LAX), and luckily from the episode “Sundown”, I can safely say that they are not always going to be what they seem…but sometimes they are.

    Not sure what the reaction to that post was, but Im guessing it didnt go over too well.

    Again, like in your other post, thank you, and keep up the good work!

  2. I can’t stand the thought of spoilers. Spoilers spoil all the fun. That’s simply what they do. There’s no reason to watch anymore when you read a spoiler. I’ve read (thankfully unimportant) spoilers long ago and it did me no good.

    It cracks me up when people like TawretsAnkh come on here and post shit that they know is a spoiler, and then say “No it’s not. I’m just an awesomely perfect and cocky individual.” It makes no sense, but that’s literally what he would say.

    Such a weird guy he was. And an butthole.

    Some people have a need to see what’s coming up, and then express it to everyone else. I assume it gives them a feeling of power or control. “Hey, if you want answers, which I know you do, check this out! spoiler alert!……”

    I enjoy this site so much withOUT spoilers. It gives me a sense of where I’m at in terms of…well…how sane I am when compared to other Lost fans.

    We all know we have a better chance at winning the lottery than being right about something on this show. Yet we all have a blast doing it for some reason. It’s quite funny really…..but not really. It’s just a good reminder that we’re obsessed with what some random strangers decided to put on TV a few years back. Geez, good thing it’s about over.

  3. a little note about why Sundown was given that title, it has been stated that season 6 is suspose to loosely mirror season one and it was intentionally misleading (if you weren’t in the know, you may have thought it might be a Jin/Sun episode) since episode six of season was titled
    ‘house of the rising sun’.

  4. “What annoys me more than a spoiler. Is people who say things like “oh I called that way back in season 2″ or “I got this and that right” oh did ya. Cause I could care less. Sorry but it gets on my nerves”
