I think we need to establish a definition of "spoilers" here.  I'm fairly
new to the net, but my understanding is this:

A spoiler is *inside information*, something from a personal contact or
other reliable info not generally available to the public.

It is *not* speculation.

It is *not* vague comments from an interview in a magazine anyone in the
world could pick up at a newsstand.

I have taken to ignoring the "spoilers" warnings on these postings, because
I haven't seen a single real spoiler yet.  Of course, if someone *does*
post a real spoiler, I guess a warning won't stop me now, since I probably
won't believe it.
