I hadn't thought about that when the moderators wrote the policy. I think though it has more to do with something along the lines like Newsarama having an interview with Dwayne McDuffie and McDuffie saying "In issue #16 Giganta is going to kill Hawkgirl and that sets off Kurt Busiek's FINAL CRISIS limited series. And then I reveal that Green Arrow is in actuality Black Canary's father, not Larry Lance." And then someone posting that information here.

"Probably the most famous speech from the GREEN LANTERN/GREEN ARROW story is the black guy coming up to Green Lantern and saying 'You helped the green guys, you helped the purple guys, you helped the blue guys. What have you done for the black guys?' And my answer would have been, I saved the world 15,000 times, duh. I didn't go out to save the white guys, I saved the world. So get off my back."

Wouldn't that be "hype" information, and thus not a spoiler? My interpretation of #2 relates to the advanced copies that many retailers get. Sometimes customers can look at these, and potentially spoil a story a week before it is officially released. There was a huge dust-up with Peter David over on the Spider-Man board about this issue several months ago.
