    Please No Title Threads with Race Spoilers

    Like "Is Simoni Only Biding His Time"?

    This is super-annoying for those of us who cannot watch the race during North American office hours....

    sorry my man, but if you don't want to know what happened in a bike race, then perhaps avoiding bike related www's is a prudent thing to do.

    it really sucks to have to do this though. Ive done it numerous times when ive had to but it really blows when you are at work and have to avoid this site because of spoilers.

    i dont expect anyone not to continue to post them or anything. just stating my shared frustration.

    hmmm

    I seem to remember, during the TDF it was common practice not to reveal anything in the title and if the thread was going to reveal anything it would have been labeled as such.

    I think it's common courtesy, not too hard to do. Its not like this sub forum drops posts to page 2 anytime soon

    I specifically visit sites like BF, CyclingNews, and Pez to find out stage results and get some discussion. I can't view anything live but I still want to know what happened.

    That's fine. But people should not put it in the title of the thread, that's all.

    I know, and it seems to have been replaced by this forum when i wasn't looking. I would just think it would be common courtesy.
