    If I log in here from work on Sunday I will of course see "Michael Schumacher wins with Rubens close behind" or some damn thing. It's for my own good.
    I am serious. I work 7 days a week with crappy hours I don't want to ruin my taped race when I get home because I read a damn headline.
    I'll post a picture of a boobie if I have to. Even if it's my own.

    OK, but no boobies, please (not your own, anyway)! :)

    I agree that spoilers should be strictly handled. Keep it to yourselves, or post it in wholly non-descript threads like "Melbourne Race Results" or something.

    I know that I, for one, won't even bother to watch a tivo'd race if I end up seeing the results before I watch it.

    Perhaps giving the offenders a one-day ban would be a much more plausible solution for curbing the problem quickly and efficiently?

    To understand why Neil might be getting a little pesky he works in the middle of the pictures I just posted under Where is spring?

    Just looked at them. I now understand...Neil we feel your pain (sorta). It's 75 in Houston and magnificent. Of course, wait until Jun/Jul/Aug.

    One of the local authors (Leon Hale) wrote about a trip he used to take to find spring. He and a friend just headed south until the mesquite were greening up. After a number of years, they determined that spring moves north at 7 miles per day. Count the days, Neil.

    You realize that being "banned" only means you cannot post, it DOES NOT mean you cannot read others posts. I recommend just staying off the internet all together.

    Yeah, but I'm a moron. I logged in 3 times before I remembered I didn't want to see any posts.
    1st time: "Hummm wrong password I guess."
    2nd time: "Come on stupid"
    3rd time "Damn it, what's wrong with this piece of shi.... Ooooooo!"

    yup. there are some seriously eager to piss off people here. and it is not intentional by anymeans, I'm quite sure of it. but even seeing 'horray!' as a thread title, when I'm just looking at the list of forums - well... it's pretty obvious. and even if it wasn't that obvious from the qualifying, I'd still like to see "F1 Results (spoiler!) instead of this.
