Those lucky few who have already seen Star Wars: The Force Awakens better keep their lips sealed, at least if they want to keep up their Reddit habit.

Reddit moderators have zero tolerance for Star Wars leakers and has warned users that they will ban them from posting if they don’t abide by the “no spoilers” rule, reported Digital Trends.

While many viewers have posted pleasant, detail-free reviews, the Reddit crowd hasn’t been so kind. Many have purposefully posted telling spoilers of the new film, the seventh in the series, to various threads on the site.

“We’ve banned dozens of users so far for this,” wrote one moderator who goes by ‘TheGreatZiegfield’. “I think all the mods have had it spoiled for them by now. We’ll do our best to make sure you guys don’t suffer the same fate. Good luck, guys.”

It isn’t clear if banned users will be allowed access again in the future, though anyone is able to create another account using a different name.

While moderators are working diligently to keep threads spoiler-free, be careful what you click if you’re avoiding any plot hints. If you’re especially worried about coming across Star Wars: The Force Awakens details, the Force Block Goole Chrome extension will warn you that a webpage could contain potential spoilers.

However, if you’re one of the few looking for all the details, spoilers included, there are specific threads just for you (no user bans here): /r/TFAspoilertalk or /r/starwarsleaks.
