WASHINGTON, DC (WUSA) -- In today's always-on, 24/7 media environment, can people really hope to be surprised when NBC airs its taped Olympic coverage?

WUSA9.com took some flak this weekend when we blasted out results from some of the big events in London on Facebook and by email.

Some folks threatened to unfriend us.

WUSA9.com Executive Producer for Digital Content Manny Fantis says he's sorry and promises it won't happen again. From now on, he says we'll shoot out alerts and post on Facebook saying we have the results. But if you want to actually see who won and who lost, you'll have to click on a link to see.

We did encounter some differing opinions among the digerati at the Farragut Square food trucks. Some people just turn off all their feeds and refuse to look at any emails or posts about the Olympics.

Others say they enjoy watching the telecast of the Olympics even if they know the results. Some say it's impossible not to know beforehand.
