    I'm actually wondering that myself about rumors. so many rumors lack credibility that I ignore them. Abrams might be able to keep secret, however lower level employees are the problem. my dad went to highschool with the children of LFL employees. for that reason he knew that Vader was Luke's dad before the Empire Strikes Back came out. now with the internet it's a whole different ballgame

    I think we're still quite safe from any big leaks and actual spoilers.

    In this forum we are supposed to be safe from rumors from lower-level employees. From what I remember from 3SA, a lot of the discussion centered around what so-and-so saw while working on the set. Anakin Force-choking Padme was leaked about a year in advance of the film by somebody called "Darth Friday" and generated a pretty good ****storm there. (I called bull**** on it. Sadly I was wrong.)

    I don't remember Lucas himself or the actors leaking anything; in fact, I remember an interview in which Hayden Christensen refused to answer a couple of questions about AOTC because "I want to be in Episode III." IIRC the actors were all given varying copies of the script, with lines changed in scenes that did not directly involve them, plus pretty tight non-disclosure agreements. With Abrams being more notoriously tight-lipped than Lucas, I hope the lack of "official source" spoilers holds.

    As far as rumors at this point, I have seen both of the ones you mentioned, albeit against my will. I'm not taking anything too seriously at this point though.

    Brahms is very tight with stid. the whole khan thing was well kept it a secret, though there was some speculation.. perhaps I will watch the trailers knowing that Abrams does not spoil much.

    eht13 and I just finished mapping out our trip. We should be at all of your houses to disable your newsfeeds, YouTube, browser cookies and your access to social media & newssites within the next 2 weeks. Please hang in there and be as strong as possible until we arrive. For a small fee, we will also cut off access to your local Barnes & Noble or any other public place with potential exposure to spoilers by having these establishments obtain a restraining order against you lest you ever have a moment of weakness and enter such environments. We ask that you begin the process of cancelling your cable subscription before we arrive to remove your televisions. Be strong... we'll be there as soon as the family truckster can get us there.

    LOL, I haven't had cable since 2006.

    I did get one of those rumors from Facebook though.

    ...why does the above post sound eerily like something the Empire would pull? o_O

    I remember a great rumor: Anakin was going to Force choke Jar Jar...

    ...but then I saw the movie.

    Why. :(

    Did we decide to remove the part about "taking care" of their friends who might try to talk to them about SW?

    We will determine upon meeting each individual member whether they have friends. Then, silence their friends as necessary.

    I definitely don't want to know about casting decisions. I will flip out if they go for star power to attract people to the greatest movie franchise ever known. Like Samuel Jackson, yes.

    Damn I'm getting upset just thinking about it.

    Probably not very . . . I still read the other forum. I have no will against my curiosity for E7.

    I haven't read the other forum since this one opened, except for a couple of forays into their GIL thread, and I haven't even done that in over a week.

    I'll watch the short teaser trailers, maybe the longer ones. I haven't decided. I'm also ok with the poster and a few pieces of official artwork/promo shots.
    But I used adblock to completely hide 7S, and I'm going to try and avoid most news sites as we approach 2015. I'm probably going to block the sci-fi sites closer in. Better no temptation.
    Rumour wise... none for me. I feel like it would be one of the things to make me give in.

    I want to be as unspoiled as is possible in this age of the Internet.

    Outside of watching the theatrical trailers, I hope to see nothing else about this film minus posters. I will even avoid TV commercials, I do the same for Marvel movies...

    Once production starts in earnest, I'll probably stay away from JC altogether. That's how spoiler free I'm gonna be.

    Now that's hardcore.

    I've been advocating in Comms for those of us who don't want spoilers but still want to be able to post here, as far as determining where we will be able to post without worrying about being spoiled. I still want to be able to discuss the EU, the new TV series coming out this fall, the ST in this forum (although I'll bail in here if the rest of the forum decides they want to discuss the long trailers or anything else too spoilerific for me), and I want to be able to hang out with you guys even if we aren't discussing Star Wars at all. The mod team has been pretty responsive and at this point I'm not concerned about needing to bail on the entire board.

    I'm not dissing your choice, everyone has to do what works, I'm just throwing that out there in general because I know there are folks here who dislike spoilers as much as I do.

    Trying to avoid any info and/or spoilers for something this big is gonna be like skating drunk through a minefield while a helicopter is shooting at you.
