Example of good spoiler policy

I would just like to say this thread...

Netflix’s “The Spy” with Sacha Baron Cohen Spoilers after post 20

...has demonstrated a solid policy for all-at-once shows, particularly where the entire show is already available when the thread is started. Almost exactly 6.5 days (so call it a week) before spoilers, a big notice when spoilers start, and even a heads-up in the thread title how far you can safely read. In terms of policy and execution, 4 stars, would buy again.

I've seen other threads with longer no-spoiler periods (a month, IIRC) and also some with none, where you just jump right in with spoilers. This week-long one seemed like a good balance.

Not agitating for anything; just complimenting.
