We all know why, no need to talk much more about that. I am noticing that many of the fan sites are encountering a growing problem with spoiler posts on their forums. For example, HBO is considering the drastic step of closing their forums until post release, solely because of the spoiler risk. B.net may be "somewhat" resistant to that as Bungie has a bigger stick than fan sites. Bungie can blacklist and affect a spoiler's ability to use/enjoy the XBL aspect of H2. While a good stick, I am concerned that it may not be sufficient. If the threat of spoilers and other nonsense becomes more real, I would suggest this as a potential course of action. [color=white]All accounts created on or after the date of the "leak" are unable to post in the Forums. Accounts whose creation pre-dates the leak can post.[/color] All new members would need to have the reason for this explained, but I do think that they should be able to understand that it is to protect their and everyone's potential enjoyment of the campaign mode. This would also have the side effect becoming more comprehensive as time goes on. If someone with an older account does post a spoiler, and are blacklisted, they cannot "respawn" a new account and resume their activities. This is a drastic step, is only a suggestion, and as a true fan I despise the idea of restricting anyone's enjoyment of the fan community. But, I am unable to see a solution that allows us to continue without the risk of someone posting something that ruins my (and many other fans) 3 years of anticipation. Please feel free to add your comments or suggestions. Thank you all.
