Completely Invisible Spoilers:
At times, spoilers are kinda ineffectual, because the very existence of a spoiler tag can often give the reader a reasonably good idea of what it hides. Is it at all possible for spoilers to just not show up at all, or show up as something different, when you don't set spoilers to be visible? I'm picturing the existing spoiler format will still be usable, but a new, optional spoiler format will be available, which would be like this (brackets replaced with parentheses for visibility): Darth Vader ((spoiler:"turns out to be Luke Skywalker's father", "killed Luke Skywalker's father")). This would read as "Darth Vader killed Luke Skywalker's father." with spoilers turned off, but would read as "Darth Vader turns out to be Luke Skywalker's father." when spoilers are enabled. Any thoughts?

Spoiler Policy, the best way to write an example is to avoid spoilers altogether. If you must use spoilers, keep all the spoiler text together and avoid idiotic patterns like individually spoiler tagging each occurrence of a character's name in a sentence. But like I said above, you browse the wiki at your own risk.

Dragon WriterThe problem with completely removing spoilers from a rendered page is that spoiler tags are used in different ways. E.g:

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
