Meta commentary:
- I balked, deleted a post since my pic wasn't attaching. We'll see if it works this time.
- ooga-booga comment prior looks out of sequence because of my cheating here

It seems pretty easy to keep spoilers out of thread titles. "Stage 3 Results" vs "Ineos wins Stage 3" isn't a difficult change to make.

Inside threads that are clearly labeled to contain results is another matter. If you click on those, that's your issue.

That's whats wrong in a lot of different areas these days. Certain people feeling entitled, and others having to adjust their behavior for them.

I have a hard time with it.
This from the guy who objected to me not putting the words 'Spoiler Alert' in the thread title.

Quite honestly, I changed my stance on the practice after reading through this thread and giving it some thought. Which obviously was after what I posted on your thread.

Wait a minute, now. That's entirely offsides.

Evolving an opinion after experience, assessment thereof, and some form of reflection? Sacrilege! Heresy!

A modest acknowledgement of same? OMG! MODERATORS!!!!!!

If you've finally seen the sense of the rebuttal I gave at the time then fine and thanks for acknowledging it.

To be clear there is no obligation to put 'spoiler alert' in the thread title only that you shouldn't put information that might spoil it for someone intending to watch post-race.
