All that empty space is pretty heavy, maybe we should get a motorized
forklift for the list. :)

Well...it was suggested, but not seriously. :)

Overall, I'm in favor of moderate use of spoilers.  I don't think we
need to define a "rule", since by-and-large, the majority (possibly all)
of the list members have been excellent about applying spoiler space
when needed.

I also think that it wouldn't be too burdensome to continue to provide
spoiler space fo Orca & Issola, even though they've been released to
paperback.  Their plots would make spoilers especially annoying.

By all means, though, don't agree with me! What would we talk about if
we started agreeing? :)

Hmm. I should make that my sig.
