    Players reading DM-only material

    Recently in another thread I blew up about a group of players reading a thread that the DM had clearly marked as containing sensitive material, clearly warning his players away from it. This made me wonder about what the general policy was toward players reading such DM-only material, such as modules and Dungeon magazines.
