yea, no doubt. i'm sure it's a hassle and it sucks for the mods. They probably view stuff and feel bad that they had to delete it.
They see thread -> they open it -> quickly click the links -> delete the thread -> then enjoy the spoilers that we are disallowed from seeing.
To think otherwise would of course make me a moron, they are just like us, they want to know new stuff as well.
So it sucks, the staff has to see it to know to delete it, and then they have to live with secrets, same secrets lots of us have to keep to ourselves now. It's sucks for everyone involved.
It is certainly the right thing to do when requested, but what a request to be made of people. What an absolutely wild request. Perhaps if Rockstar knew of the linked study it would be different. Someone on staff should mail that link to them.
I am more hyped up from the cops type tv show than anything Rockstar has released as official marketing, for example. That vid was the most epic thing this entire time, and it's not even supposed to be seen until the game is already out D:
