And good thing too, because with BLEACH 42 almost here, it's been a bitçh trying to keep the peanut gallery quiet.

I suppose that's very true.
Yes, because we have a lot of morons who don't know how to keep their mouths shut.

Yes, we do need this..
It's not the fact that they don't mark spoilers, it's the fact that some don't know how to do so.
And then there are people who just outright just put them out there, so I got the mods to float this, and all that good stuff...
Yes, there are still idiots out here who don't know right from wrong.

Three days belated 'grats on the rankage, Al. This was absolutely necessary.
Make sure to clearly mark where the spoiler begins and ends if your going to make it the same color as the board. If it fades in to the background and isn't marked, it's impossible to tell whether there's something there or not without highlighting it. As Shashi pointed out, the
<font color="black" style="background:black">SPOILERS</font>
code that produces this kind of marker spoilerspoilerspoilerspoilerspoilers let's everyone know there's something to avoid.
In any case, if you change the color of the font in the graphical editor before you switch to the HTML editor, the <font> tags will already be set up and all you have to do is add 'style="background:*color matching the text*"' in the tag in the HTML editor (no asterisks of course). Makes things easier on you.
As Ghost pointed out, merely changing the color of the text is not enough, because the color of the boards changes at times. You need to add your own same color background.
Finally, if you're going to be marking spoilers, be specific about what part of the show you're going to be spoiling. Tell what show the spoiler is from if it can't be inferred from context, and tell how far in the show the spoiler occurs. If you just mark something as "Spoilers," I have no clue what show it's from and whether I'm supposed to have seen it or not already. Therefore I don't know if the warning applies to me or not, and I may just get spoiled if I'm not careful enough. Here's an example:
Bleach SPOILERS in episode 115: I haven't seen that far so there's nothing to write here, but you get the point. END SPOILER
Be considerate; don't be lazy.

I think the background color changes slightly, as you pointed out, for specific reasons. I think that when you reply to a post that post is slightly gray rather than black.
Edit: And after posting this I see that it's my post that is slightly gray. I also think that the first unread post in a thread is grayish.

Yeah, I've seen it before. I think it's when you reply to a message, that it's highlighted..
I think it's something like this, or it may be a different colour, I don't know the exact one
