AMMAN, JORDANThe terrorism fan website AintItCruelNews.com has come under fire for publishing "spoilers" that give away future terrorist acts. "We all know what happens to the Great Satan in the end, but that doesn't mean major plot points should be revealed," said one reader who posted a complaint to the site's bulletin board. "Revealing how the villain George Bush will be eliminated ruins it for everyone." Ain't It Cruel News founder Hari al-Nolz said he will implement a color-coded "Spoiler Alert" system to prevent such leaks in the future.
