Spoilers revisited

Okay, I thought I was obsessive about spoilers until I heard about the guy who reads every issue of the New York order...and is about a year and a half behind:

"He keeps up with current events by listening to the radio while he drives to work. If he thinks he might be about to learn the ending to a particular story he’s following, he will turn it off. He doesn’t want to spoil the suspense."

(Pointed out by Jon Delfin, who saw it on Romenesko.)

A year and a half behind? Humph. An amateur. I have Newsweeks from 10 years ago I deludedly think I'll read someday.
