So what is a spoiler tag?
Spoiler tags are often used on message boards to mask spoilers from those who, well, don't want things spoiled. On the KoL forums, for example, the spoiler tags used to be black boxes with white text that changed to white text on mouseover. After some complaints, it was switched to black text on black that required people to highlight the text.

so you can post punchlines so people don't skip them, or post stuff like "spoiler: Vader is Luke's father" in spoiler tags so people who haven't seen the movie don't read it and have the movie ruined.

and on a KOL note, I think I have like 80 more adventures until I'm out of ronin. I'm close.

I loved that scene in Cheers where Frasier goes off on a tirade, ruining a whole series of books and movies for the people in the bar.

Good times! I need to play more often, I've been neglecting the clan.

LOL@me rejoining KoL. Lol @ me not deciding if I want the job yet. But I promise I'll decide tomorrow after I take the Norton test.

On my other board, its a link that says spoiler: and then a quote box comes up when you click it. It's faaaabulous.

I've seen javascript buttons for spoiler tags, too. those are pretty cool, because they don't display anything other than "spoiler: [button]" until you click the button.

A man walks into a talent agent's office and says... "Have I got an act for you"

The talent agent looks at him and asks "Well what is it?"

The man says "Oh it's great. It's got something for everyone. In fact, it's not just me but its a family act with my wife, her parents, and my son and daughter.

WARNING - I don't think I will be allowed to finish this joke. So rent The Aristocrats.
