Your House of Cards spoilers rage is totally justified

Respect the boundaries people.

THERE IS A fine line between the time when a spoiler is a spoiler, and when it becomes a legitimate topic for public discussion.

And let us tell you that when it comes to the latest season of House of Cards, released yesterday on Netflix, that line is so far in the distance that it is a speck. It barely exists.

If we’re looking at a ballpark timeframe, this is probably a pretty safe one:

We are 100 per cent behind your spoilers rage (for the next couple of weeks at least).

Here are our reasons:

Exhibit A: POTUS

The PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES says so.

Exhibit B: Not everyone binge watches

Just because some people have time to binge watch the new episodes one after another…

…it doesn’t mean everyone has time to do it.

Exhibit C: The online gasping

Exhibit D: Have we learned nothing?

Nobody wants a replay of the great Breaking Bad Spoiler War of 2013. Nobody. Friendships were broken, families torn apart, lives ruined.
