Default Please stop posting NBME questions (spoilers) or label them as such

Dear fellow members,

please, if you post questions that are from NBME forms, label them in the post name!
I keep reading through questions and after I see "this is an NBME question" or "I got this from NBME 13" etc.
Please, for the sake of everyone who does not want to spoil the NBMEs we will still take, say that it is from an NBME in the thread title!!
I am sure I am not the only one that feels like this.

Thanks and have a good day,
Val

Someone posted a thread with an image from an NBME exam just a day ago. I only found that out after I had seen the image and read the post. I haven't taken any NBMEs and if I happen to keep seeing such questions every now and then on threads that have no warning about the content, I am not sure how good a predictor my NBME exam scores will be. So yes, please do post some sort of an alert so that people like me know. Same goes with Uworld questions.

Hey, that was me who posted that image. I forgot to mention about NBME on title and not able to edit later but I specified about that in the same post.
Anyways I really apologize on my act.
Have a nice day.
