I'd respond to Morten's original thread, but it's locked.
Basically, a thread in the old forums reminds me of how pre-release speculation can, ultimately, be an unintended form of spoilers.
What I wrote there was:
[...] There are some very smart, dedicated fans out here who are perfectly able to figure things out collaboratively...they aren't spoilers in the pure sense since they are only speculation, but the impact (having a decent idea of what seems likely to happen) is not dissimilar to a "spoiler."
It turns out that RTG aren't going to post JourneyCon hint pictures anywhere because, "With too much time to scrutinise them, those hints turn into nasty spoilers!"
Maybe it's the nature of the beast. I certainly don't blame anybody for being excited about figuring things out, speculating, proving/disproving theories based on new info/tweets/etc., and as we get closer to release it might get harder to avoid.
So I guess I'm mentioning it in the context of this "no spoilers" subforum. I think speculation probably has to be allowed here, right? Speculation can't be a spoiler by definition, even if it happens to be correct, right?
It's just up to individuals to risk finding out well-reasoned arguments based on months of information and hints why
