Lj-cuts for HBP spoilers

I plan getting rid of the lj-cuts for HBP spoilers in a month. I don't remember how long I waited after OotP, but this amount of time seems reasonable. I think it's important to look out for those who might not be able to get a book immediately, or who read slowly, or who stumble onto my journal by accident, but only for a short while.

I'm interested in what everyone else is doing, too.

Poll #536381 Spoilers no more!

When do you plan to stop putting HBP spoilers behind lj-cuts?

I don't put them behind cuts anyway.

I still put the big Death of OotP under a lj-cut. There are people on my friend list that started reading the series recently due to the HBP publicity and they're only up to book 2 or 3. Also, I predict a few more people will jump on the bandwagon around the time of the GoF movie. So I still cut, and I will keep cutting until it's as well known as "Vader is Luke's father" and "the Titanic sinks".

I also know several people that won't read the book until October; that's when the French edition will come out. They don't speak English very well, but they understand it enough to get what X dies means, if I don't lj-cut it.

It's not just HP: I always lj-cut when I discuss the ending and/or a major plot twist of any movie/tv show/book/video game. Even if it came out years ago. You never know. Besides, a lj-cut is only 8 characters, why not type them?
