A "spoiler" is any information that can disrupt the enjoyment of the story. That can be about an episode or the whole series, you view at your own risk. The whole spoiler tag was created to prevent accidental spoiler exposure while reading threads, but it's still up to you to choose to look or not.

I use Warning Massive Spoiler if I use speculation etc and there are people who do read that and even ask for more and have a nice chat!

I know people just dont think when they post! But I use spoilers.

It seems that people who are NOT CR subs shouldnt object when the newest episode is done and talked about. People like to talk when it is fresh on their mind.There are so many shows so a lot of us post that same day!

BTW if the anime preview talks or shows whats in the next episode thats fair too to talk about w/o spoilers IMO

I guess I'm in the minority here. I think that the comments in an episode that are about that particular episode don't need Spoiler tags because you shouldn't be reading the comments until you've watched episode. If you read them first, you have no right to complain if something in them spoils you because you jumped the gun.

Spoiler tags in an episode comments section should be used for two things
1. Comedic purposes, though this can get old if done too frequently
-or-
2. Discussion of future events, possibly in the following episode, or further along in the timeline that the person may feel pertains to the situation at hand. This can be from manga/light novel knowledge or purely speculation.

Though to avoid this would be a simple(?) matter of removing the spoiler tag function from episode comments and monitoring those comment sections more frequently to remove any posting that spoils later events. Attempt to drive those conversations towards the forums where posts can be longer and contain far more information than you're capable of getting across in 240 characters.
