This Eric guy would have seen the deal whether he saw the thread title or clicked through to the last page, because obviously he was browsing CAG and I'm going to guess the odds are he was going to peep the Hastings thread no matter what. The cat was out of the bag as soon as it was posted. A lot of people who bother to make posts on CAG somewhat care about the community more than the thousands of average lurkers and unregistered posters who are constantly browsing this forum. It was a hopeful wish people might keep it contained on CAG a bit longer so CAGs can try to get first dibs, but it wasn't meant to be.
Obviously Eric didn't really care about any of that, and life goes on.
