Please stop this endless bickering. We have posted more than once that the subject is not up for debate and you need to take your direction from one of the staff members. Endless discussion is making the issue way more confusing than it needs to be.
If you have a problem with knowing the outcome before it airs, please stay out of both the Spoiler and Sleuthing forums.
It is not helping that people are complaining about being spoiled in general when the whole idea of both of these forums is to find out what happens before it's aired. If you're in these subforums, it's assumed you don't mind knowing something ahead of time. Yes, sleuthing will also spoil you - we get that. It would be a lot more confusing if we had a Sleuthing/Spoiler forum and a Spoiler forum, wouldn't it? But they are both essentially spoiler forums. If someone tells you the answer, that's a spoiler. If you figured it out for yourself, that's sleuthing.
That's why we can't say "all tweets are spoilers" because many times they don't say anything. Twitter isn't the problem, we need you to use your critical thinking skills to decide whether it actually shares information or is just a hint.
- "I'm going to be so sad to watch me get the boot tonight" - spoiler
- "I'm going to be so sad to watch tonight" - hint, i.e., discuss it in the sleuthing forum
Both forums essentially are aiming for the same thing - spoiling the ending. We only separated the two because 1) members requested it, and 2) the Bachelor/ette forums were a lot more fun when people were cooperating, speculating, and discussing instead of turning to personal attacks because a spoiled ending means there is nothing to discuss.
Please do not make us regret the decision to accommodate the sleuthers. Do not discuss what sleuthing or spoiling means to you personally, check the Spoiler or Sleuthing? thread and if your question is not answered, PM a staff member.
Also, try to remember that once the show starts it will be easier to distinguish the line. Right now there is not much to discuss and that leads to overanalyzing where it's not necessary.
