Ok this is why.
I came back to the forums today for the first time in two months to see if there was a release date for Episode 3 on iOS (yes I realise Ep2 only just came out last week but I wanna continue goddamnit).
Scrolling down the titles I saw that 1 character has been killed off, and another is sick.
If these had spoiler tags I wouldn't have paid attention. I now see that one the offending threads has been moderated to not give anything away in title.
So if I can't come to the TTG forums to find out when one of their titles might be released for fear of spoilers where can I go?
