It indeed does seem annoying if a thread is used not as it was first intended.
Yes you are!
A forum always has been meant for discussion and sharing your viewpoint, what is the point of seeing a person post spoiler and everyone just hitting likes and posting nothing like it doesn't matter? But if separation was so required, the staff should have made a separate sub-forum.
It is just equally annoying to go in a sub-forum knowing its rules and what to post there, yet have constant moral policing by other posters of - You can't do this here! And I would understand if it was some mega 7 page discussion between 2 users of single character.
Yet dare to do 5 post chain between 2-3 users and you will get almost more posts of moral policing then the actual "derailing" they talk about.
@Isaac20 Don't ever wake me up from this delusion
There's a time and a place for everything; if you wish to discuss a post on a spoiler thread, make a specific LCD or novel discussion thread and discuss the spoiler post through quoting there.
Just because one is not meant to do something in one place, doesn't mean you can't do it in another. Though, if the said "rule" isn't strictly stated, then that's another story.
As for those who complain about it a lot, them complaining about it and not just silently reporting it beats the purpose of their complaints. Of course, that is if there's the prerequisite that OP forbids discussion on their thread.
But the spoiler sub-forum is specified by the staff for only place to discuss those spoilers. When the staff itself has specified that place and gave their okay to discuss in it, why would anyone go to other forum to appease anyone?
Going to another sub forum would be required if the spoiler section rules forbade from discussion, but they clearly don't and that thread has been there for like 2 months already, Yet the hoard of people who do not read, tend to suggest that they are the ones in right and not others.
And that is the irony, they are mad over posts that are "not spoilers" yet don't hesitate themselves making those and then arguing about it. :D
I'll remember that. (//ω//)
