There should be two spoiler buttons- "Episode Spoiler" and "Series Spoiler."
"Episode" would be in regards to anything that happens that episode. And "Series" can go past that.

This is worth considering and would put the comment sections ahead of many others...
I'm so used to seeing episode spoilers and acknowledging them as okay after the episode, but then every once in a while I come across series spoilers and it kinda irks me... Since it depends on the user.
With this, we can at least distinguish.

I at first thought "why don't you not open spoilers" but then I realize the value of such a function. This would allow people to know which spoilers they're getting into and so forth. +1

I could get behind this. Probably won't happen but would be useful none the less.

They should at least give you a option to get the description of the spoilers. On episodes it's easy to guess the subject of the spoiler. But in forums it's much harder. You simply have no clue what the spoiler warning regards.

I find the opposite to be true. In forums at least folks can provide context or even outright information since you can put only part of the post under a spoiler tag. In episode comments it's all or nothing.

A two spoiler button solution would require folks to care enough to use them. Considering how often folks don't bother using a spoiler tag at all, I have my doubts that adding a second type of button would help.

I guess that is true, I don't quite frequent the forums as often as I should I mainly stay in one of my groups. I was however trying to relate the problem with the forums since I was here. In my group it's a horrible problem. You don't know the subject matter there. However in my group most people are nice enough to use spoiler warnings but they tend to be random spoilers just thrown in. Many people in the group (myself included) often end up with one of 2 problems.

Either you just do completely ignore there comment or open it hoping they will not share a spoiler for anime you haven't had a chance to watch or sharing a manga spoiler many episodes ahead of the anime.

Forums you have subjects however on a group wall that's simply not the case as the subject is constantly evolving threw out the day.

This is just my answers, but shouldn't that where the forum is for?
Like almost all anime, they have their own forum section. So I thought that is where all spoilers are posted

^ This.

For people who do care, I agree that it's considerate to add a quick blurb before a spoiler in the forums, i.e. "Spoiler for chapter 79" or "Spoiler for ending".

I think LosingHope is right that it's a pretty good bet that spoilers in episode comments are for that episode, but it would be nice if some day it's possible to add context so people can be sure. (I don't understand why someone would post ending spoilers in episode 2 of an anime, but sometimes it happens. )
