    A Spoiler Tag is a feature which allows you to envelop and conceal a portion of post. A clickable icon would appear in your post, and once you click on it the concealed post is revealed for you to read. This way people can talk and post about new media and stories without spoiling the secrets for anyone else.

    Can you offer an example? Not sure why you'd make a post if you didn't want people to read it.

    Is it like a link except you don't need an outside URL?

    So does this amount to another level of "aside" or "under the breath" comment that would be visible only to the marginally interested?

    Such as if I were to make this point and that's pretty much it...

    but down here I say "Wake eats babies"

    What about this technique:

    SPOILER ALERT:

    I just saw Titanic and the boat sinks!

    Right - that's what I do now.

    You could also make it smaller and thus more inconspicuous-- or even
    hide it completely in white. -- the John Lennon technique

    Is this the idea?
