OK I guess I could see where it could be considered a spoiler if no one had heard of this before, but since this has long since been rumored I just don't see it as that big of a deal.

If really IS that huge of a deal then you may want to write to the various news sources, podcasts, websites that have (or will be) posting this as well.

Is the BBC spoiling Dr. Who just because Season Two has long since aired over there and is just now winding up here in the states? Should all the Firefly/Serenity based sites remove all the "Wash Dies" info because some have not seen the movie? Are all the "Rosebud" jokes spoiling the film Citizen Kane?

Where does one draw the line when it comes to "spoilers"?

Putting on the Mod Hat, OMG!
It's a casting bit, which therefore makes it HIGHLY SPOILERLISH! Casting changes, for outgoing more than incoming, are considered spoilerly. Some people don't want to know about the incoming, but most people, unless open to spoilers, don't want to know about the outgoing.

Some people don't follow the rumors, but go out of their way to ignore said rumors.

It's just a nice thing to offer a cut, or a link, to information which has not officially come out on the screen yet.

It's always good to have spoiler cuts around for at least a season, that way you aren't spoilering people who have not been able to see the show yet. We should see lots of this happening when Canada and the UK get the second half of SG-1 and SGA before the US does. But wherever it shows first, there will be spoiler cuts to offer courtesy.

Thanks for changing the info into a link!
