No, they weren't spoilers for people, because people didn't have to watch them daily. They could easily avoid seeing the daily episodes. But when there's a big ol' notice on the front page (and the thing on Toyrocket follows the same thinking), it's hard to avoid.
The show was announced as airing two ways:
1 - daily webisodes
2- complete series
People could choose how they wanted to watch it, daily or wait. And some people said they would watch it every day and others said they'd wait. All this was prior to even the first airing.
Discussions didn't stop during the week on each episode, but after the first one, people changed how they posted the threads to discuss things to prevent spoiling it for other people.
There were a couple of exceptions, and I posted a thread that was titled in a spoiler-way that I should have changed the title to a non-spoiler before posting, wasn't paying attention and I'm sorry for that.
But I'm done, don't want to get in trouble again.

No troubles man, I'm really just debating here and trying to pare obtuse ideas like "No Spoilers" down to a more specific idea like "No Plot Spoilers" or so while trying to show what is taken into consideration from the other side.
People chose to not watch the first showing, heck there's people who decided to wait and see the whole showing but still wound up missing it. So given that, even if the Bludd Obit was posted today, it could potentially be a spoiler for someone. That's where I'm trying to come from here. At what point does something go from being a spoiler to a non-spoiler, how long do people have to wait? Since this is now about the upcoming movie, how long after the premiere would be a safe time for such things?

Reminded me of the Simpsons: I Married Marge:
Wow, what an ending!

I don't think it's all that hard to understand what is and what is not a spoiler...
Posting Bludd's Death on front page.... Spoiler
Threads starting with XXX is Dead!.... Spoiler
AS.com posting daily wed episodes.... Not a spoiler (IMO)
you would have to go to adultswim.com to view them. I watched everything online so I never had a problem with the stuff posted...(B/C I was up to date)
Showing off chareters & Vehicles from the movie I don't think is the same...( at least IMO)...
I could see people getting upset abou this....
BUT....If I were waiting for resolute to show on t.v. ....I would have probably stayed away from the tank untill after....

It is the curse of the internet that information is too freely obtainable, and I don't mind that people post spoilers so long as they're clearly listed as such. And typically, folks have the courtesy of doing so. Personally though, I've done my best to avoid looking through the Resolute/Movie pages for that very reason. I don't mind because I can avoid going there.
Again, I just think that there was some level of carelessness in posting an article of this nature on the front page as this is one location on the site that is, for the most part, intentionally unavoidable.
If the article had started with "See what happened in Episode One of Resolute! Warning contains spoilers." I don't think anyone would complain.
And thanks for at least listening, Shogi.

I don't even look at the main page anymore because of posting the whole Major bludd thing.I know its not a rule to post spoilers in the title like that,but we all give each other the common courtesy not too.I'm willing to bet that if anyone other than Destro would of posted something like that.People would of been screaming to have it changed.
Hell,i was kind of tempted to not post in here because of fear of having more post deleted.I had 3 post deleted with no warning or reason just for saying something.Thats all i'm going to say,i don't want to be banned from the tank just for standing up for something that (IMHO) was wrong to do.
Like Hicks said...Thanks for listening Shogi.

I don't mind seeing spoilers 2 days after a premiere. That's time for others to catch it (especially with the 'net).
With Resolute, because it was known ahead of time about the two airing ways, then it would have made sense to wait until today or monday to start the specific spoilers, like the "Bludd RIP" threads.
Discussions still went on during the week for those that had seen it, but most of the topics were significantly "hidden" so that people avoiding them could easily do so.

Movie spoilers need their own section on this website, and it should be hard to find.
