I hate spoilers. If anyone spoils something for me, I still end up watching or reading it anyway.

I'm okay with them as long as they don't totally spoil what I'm watching and someone I know isn't blurting them out during a movie.... (ala: my family, not saying I've never been guilty of it myself though)

That depends. If its a spoiler that gives away the most fun or interesting part, then no. If its a spoiler that is somewhere between interesting and boring, then they are fine.

I have no real issues with them.
Some times spoilers can make me even more excited to see it for myself. But I don't want the ending spoiled.
When it comes to other people I tend to ask first, if the person is alright with me spoiling or not.

You definitely have to be careful when browsing the internet, especially when there's a lot of hype about a game you haven't played, a series you haven't watched, or a movie you haven't seen. That said, I experienced LOADS of Avengers spoilers during the time between the Europe release and the American release, and I still was VERY excited to see the film and the experience wasn't spoiled for me at all.

Spoilers can never ruin the experience. In fact, if a surprise is the only thing an intellectual property has going for it, it might not be as satisfying as something that has a tried-and-true screen-play, script, or scenario. For instance, think about the biggest twist you've ever seen in a film. Would the film have been as good without the twist? Is watching the movie/series/game a second time SIGNIFICANTLY less enjoyable than the first?

When I watched bleach, I saw a spoiler about how it would end... It made me really angry, and I felt like I should just give up watching!

I didn't though, and was surprised to see that the ending, although the major point had been spoiled, actually didn't matter! It was the build up and afterwards which allowed me to still enjoy the show, but I still hate spoilers! They definitely take away any unpredictability...

I hate spoilers. It kills the suspense for me and I love suspense, not knowing what's going to happen. If I know then just reading/watching it will be a waste of time for me.

Generally, if I don't know where something is going... The odds are I'll lose interest due to not knowing whether it stays good or not. It's like in horror stories, is the story actually horrifying? Or is it just a train load of jump scares that hide the fact the reality of the story is pretty generic and would never be worth a second viewing/reading?

If something can be utterly spoiled by spoilers it either wasn't that good in the first place, or you didn't really care about it so much as simply wanting to be surprised.

Example 1: The answer to the meaning of life the universe and everything is 42. That's the answer, at the end; doesn't change the fact the journey whether sign posted (spoiled) or not was worth it. In fact I read the books, I loved the books and I enjoyed every minute of the experience, in spite of knowing almost everything ahead of time. Had I not known the events ahead of time I might not have made the time to finish the first one.

Example 2: A tragedy, a character dies and you only care because you didn't know it would happed. Or alternatively, you knew who was going to die, how and when and looked at the character differently as a result and the death still hurt you. I can only speak for myself, but I care a lot more when I do know because the weight of that character's personality becomes more prominent. This I ascribe to the fact that people take many things for granted, especially life.

no problem with spoilers. However I have a specific day when i read a bunch of mangas and I usually read new ones a few days later after they come out i always have a negative feeling when ever I'm to eager to read a new chapter as soon as it comes out. I did this a few times and for some reason I just feel terrible after
