I've always thought the spoiler tag was a waste of time, but every time it's come up I've been out-voted and told to use it. So I do.

The idea is to allow everyone to do their own work and make their own decisions if they want to without accidentally seeing other opinions first.  My take is that anyone can do that by simply not scrolling down, so the spoiler tag mostly serves to impede the conversation for those who want to discuss and share opinions.

I'll continue to place a spoiler tag around bot results, since that gives "the answer", but as for my spouting off I don't think I'm giving anything away if somebody sees that.

I do like use of the spoiler option for that reason you state, its free and takes two seconds, so should not be a big deal.

Absolutely agree that it is for move chat only, pretty much anything else does not need to be hidden.

It is also likely that it only applies to the first couple of replies [that is how it is for me], since they are the only ones you can see without taking action - ie the ones that need to be covered up! It is just slightly easier to ask that everyone use it for game chat, rather than ask the first couple of posters to do it  Wink

I never really grasped what the SPOILER is intended to spoil. Can't opponent simply click on the spoiler bar to see what's being hidden ?
