Hmm sometimes it can be, but I've liked a few WWE pages on Facebook. Thats just an example though. Ah well, better to be safe then sorry. If I'm paying $35 (Aus.) bucks for a PPV, I want to enjoy every second of it!
 
And that's exactly why the No Spoilers rule. TUPeeps are spread out across the globe and can't see the show at the exact same time.
 
It bears repeating, if anyone wants to comment on the show while they are watching they should use the WrestleMania 29 thread. As with other PPVs, during the live show the rules against double-posting and against single line posts are relaxed within the specific PPV thread.

Yeah Facebook is just as bad or worse than forums for spoilers, I've liked a few WWE and TNA pages and have wrestling fans among my friends list so it's really easy to catch a glimpse of a spoiler while scrolling down your news feed.
I now tend to avoid Facey completely until I've watched PPV's.

Would also be nice if people refrain from starting new topics with spoilers in the titles eg Undertaker 21-0 and so forth, there are enough current threads that this doesn't need to be done in any rate.

To click "edit post" takes maybe a split second longer and there is really no reason for people not to just edit their post if they made the last post in the thread and if they wanna add something. I never bought into the "relax double posting rule" during PPV's. 

I won't be a dick and "warn" anyone for double posting; but either me or Adders may just merge the posts together as is per usual practice.

Just a suggestion, but why not just create a "Live" conversation for whatever PPV, and then say the hell with the rules? The original thread can be kept to the same standards, but in say the case of the "Wrestlemania 29 Live discussion" thread, people can spam and post spoilers to their heart's content so long as they follow all the rest of the rules of the forum. Then it's all kept in that one thread and if someone wants to go into the original Wrestlemania 29 thread they can continue to post without spoilers and write more well thought out posts.

Anyways, just a thought.
