    Pretty sure that's where things are headed too. Tormund and Co aren't going to be happy with her.

    We need a Mousey here to lay down the law

    Athlai's right imo, in that the thread was created and rules made so that people wouldn't discuss things that indicate what may happen in the show in the future. What he did doesn't violate the spirit of the thread.

    But of course since we are all nice and civilised people we can surely agree to not discuss anything book related that hasn't been in the show, regardless of whether the plot is over or not? That sort of stuff can go in a book thread can't it?

    It just gets my goat when there is a kill it with fire mentality to stuff that happened years ago. These aren't spoilers for show watchers, sure people are still fully entitled to not appreciate show/book narrative decisions but there is nothing wrong in what CPR or myself said in terms of spoiling the show.

    And could we cut out the insults?

    ....there are people in the book thread who aren't watching the latest season because it spoils the book.

    We've had this debate before and it was decided no book spoilers no matter what.

    That's the point mate. The book arcs are different to the show. GIMH (and others like myself) are reading or about to read the books. While the Jeyne Pool thing you've mentioned may have run it's course through the show, it hasn't for GIMH or anyone else reading the books that is just starting out.

    The request from GIMH, and the others liking GIMH's post is to not post direct plot differences between the show and the book (e.g. someone else marries Ramsay).

    It's a request, a fair one IMO to stop with the "well in the book..." stuff and discuss the TV show happenings only.
    If you want to discuss TV show happenings vs book happenings maybe keep it in the book thread linked in Fusions OP.

    my 2 cents.

    Good luck to them staying off the internet. They're going to get spoiled no matter what, and IMO it's better to get spoiled watching the show than by coming across a GoT spoiler meme on a random page on the internet.

    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!

    I only started watching this whole show a week ago and am now fully caught up. Holy **** that battle has to be one of the best battle scenes in any tv or movie ever. The crushing experience had me wriggling and writhing.

    I have no complaints except Bronn is becoming an increasingly underutilised Han Solo.

    Yeah we made a decision on this once before.

    It sounds silly but the discussion about Jeyne and Sansa should be made in a third thread free-for-all if anything. Feel free to create that thread if you like.

    And could we cut out the insults?
    Personally, I was trying to be quite vague in my references to the book. Although I mention Caitlyn having a certain intelligence in it, I'm trying not to reference specific actions that could be spoilers.

    Truth is, the 3rd thread is probably a good idea, as there's book people now avoiding the show, show people wanting to play catch up with the books, and a third bunch who have either read/watched, or watching and not fussed about reading, and this last category are comfortable with crossing the streams when it comes to conversation on the topic. From my point of view it'd certainly be easier to discuss whats happening in the show whilst referencing back to the book, as its getting frustrating trying to explain things to folks who haven't read it why certain things are happening (mainly explaining bits that are cut out of an hour long broadcast).
