How long before a game's spoilers becomes public knowledge and can be discussed openly without fear of spoiling it for others?

I finally won a mod dispute. Too bad it got overturned a day after my suspension ended.

I absolutely abhor spoilers. They should never be given without warning.

The worst spoilers are the ones that spring up (without warning of course) in totally unrelated discussions. You know, like someone spoiling Kingdom Hearts on a freaking Persona or Final Fantasy topic/board/article/etc.

Why insult someone when you can say something nice in a very sarcastic tone?

10 years sound about right, i mean honestly

I always make sure to never even hint towards something. When I see someone else do the same and go through hoops to make sure they spoil as little as possible, I get both sad and happy at the same time. I get happy because there's people that care instead of mindlessly spoiling things, accidental or not, and I get sad because it's pretty damn rare to see that.

Aeris' death is commonly openly referenced without spoiler warning


I wish I never knew about as that part wasn't very effective for me.

Yeah, another defense against spoiling. If something is amazing and you want others to enjoy it, is spoiling the hell out of it really the way to go? If a person knows every major thing that's going to happen before it happens, it just won't hold the same impact/significance for them.
