In the 14+ years I've been here, NO ONE has ever put "spoiler" in the subject when they post B.O. numbers

Posted by: Flash on Aug 19, 07:40 in response to goodvibe61's post I can't believe the rudeness around here. You guys are...

DMac posts adjust numbers here as well on Sundays.  Whatever the results are on Monday (actual B.O.) it has NO reflection on how HSX adjusts the openers, since HSX adjusts them based on "estimates" from the studios.

The best thing I can think of is to skip a day of trading by NOT logging in to HSX on Sundays.  Again, in the 14 years I've played, NO one has ever put "spoiler" in the subject when they've posted B.O. numbers.  I think you're in the minority.  99% of the players want to know how the openers did.

Again, your best bet is to NOT log in on Sundays.  I don't think this is something you'll be able to stop.  Sorry.

I can't believe the rudeness around here. You guys are already posting weekend box office numbers without putting "spoiler" in the headline.   goodvibe61 on Aug 18, 10:39

I can't figure out if you are serious or kidding... if you are serious, then why would you not want to know how the movie did?   Oleg Max on Aug 18, 10:58

well, in that case, why Monday afternoon? when I was in high school, our accounting teacher used to buy Wednesday Philly Inquirer   Oleg Max on Aug 18, 11:16

I wish Leonard was around to tell me if this was sarcasm or not. {nm}   elchan on Aug 18, 11:03

Here you go   slappydavid on Aug 18, 11:27

Are you being sarcastic? {nm}   elchan on Aug 18, 11:46

Yes. No... Maybe... {nm}   slappydavid on Aug 18, 12:30

Well, all the years I've been playing this game, that's new one for me. Shame on all of us.   grammar on Aug 18, 18:25
