What Are Spoilers?

I don’t understand what spoilers are. And I found out how to reveal them by pressing certiane keys on your computer, but now I forgot, so what do I press? What are spoilers, what is the whole concept of them.

Put spoiler in , then type away, then end it with [/spoiler].

Spoilers are basically giving away plot points that are relevant to the show…in essence spoiling the movie. For instance, in the movie The Sixth Sense

Bruce Willis is actually dead.

This preserves the surprise for those who haven’t seen the movie. It’s a courtesy.

Oh, and triple clicking on the spoiler box will reveal the words.

Or click and drag over the box (as if you were selecting the hidden text)
