Users, please, if you have a review to post in the Movie Talk / Re: Respond to the last movie you watched thread, but it already has a spoiler thread open, post the review in the spoiler thread.  Then in the Movie Talk / Re: Respond to the last movie you watched thread, post a link to your review. 

Also if there is not a spoiler thread open for a big movie and you know your review will cause numerous replies, please start a thread in the spoiler board. 

The number of spoilers being posted in the non-spoiler board for Skyfall really does a huge disservice to your fellow Filmspotters who have not had a chance to see this movie.

Thanks,

Do you want the respond thread to be used only for linking? What if the review isn't spoilery?

If the review isn't spoilery, it's fine to continue putting that review in the Repond to thread.

If the review is spoilery and a big movie which most of us will see, it should have its own thread in the spoiler board.

Some movies are too small for their own threads so posting reviews in the Respond to thread is fine, but even small movies shouldn't have spoilers in the reviews. 

Skyfall is an obvious case.  The film had a thread in the spoiler board and still a spoiler review was posted in the Respond to thread.  That review and subsequent responses to that review should have gone into the spoiler thread with the review linked to in the Repond to thread.
