> 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.
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.
