When I started watching The O.C. a few years after it ended airing, I already knew that a certain title character didn't make it past season three, thanks to someone's AIM away status (throwback reference) that read "R.I.P. Marissa Cooper" when the original episode aired. That is too soon. So when Netflix launched a spoiler site, which explores what it is like to live with spoilers in today's culture, I was instantly intrigued by the findings.
