|Read them, or I'll smite you with infinite prejudice
Leaving aside the gentleman's name, I reproduce his words here, because they are glorious:
Why oh why do you insist on spamming us with your articles on Game of Thrones. FFS it's just a TV show and no other TV show gets weekly episode reviews.... give it a rest !!!!
I can't tell you how thrilled I am to receive my first "Why oh why" email. It's an even better feeling than I had imagined.
I really want to reply to this gentleman's email. It's taking me a great deal of effort to stick by the philosophy that you shouldn't poke the angry bear.
But in case he happens to journey around the interwebs, and perhaps come across this blog, I just want to make a few points that perhaps he didn't stop to consider:
- It is actually impossible to be "spammed" by a news website that you yourself choose to visit.
- There is no requirement for you to actually click on the recap and read it.
- In fact, many TV shows are recapped weekly on Fairfax sites, including Mad Men, My Kitchen Rules and The Voice.
For the most part though, I've been absolutely delighted with the response of commenters on the recaps, so do join in the fun if you're willing and able.
