I have, on a couple occasions noticed either (1) a spoiler box being used incorrectly - that is, it didn't actually hide all the info that was spoiler info. And (2) a spoiler box being used when the information included in the spoiler did not add any pertinent information to the statement the respondent was making.
On the first occasion I dropped the respondent a comment and they fixed it promptly. On the second occasion I down-voted the answer and left a comment that I down-voted due to what I thought was an unnecessary spoiler.
Is there an expectation that if a spoiler is used it should be pertinent to the answer, and also are there any guidelines on using spoilers? And lastly when a spoiler box is used is the respondent encouraged (by pop up box or some other method) to consider the implications of including a spoiler?
