I have my reasons for ignoring the spoiler tag.
- I don't believe in spoiler warnings, they are redundant on the web. Everything one reads, hears, and watches on the web comes with an automatic spoiler warning. (I quit Twitter for nearly a year only to have the end of the battle on Avengers: Endgame spoiled by watching the wrong YouTube video.)
- It is not valid html. (Yes, I know <readmore> isn't either.)
There is a way to make it so that people won't have to learn a new tag, and I can still have <details>. How about instead of using a <div>, <span>, or <table> with a <td> with the class of spoiler to make the spoiler tag, use the details tag instead with <spoiler> having Spoiler as the default <summary? <readmore> could use <details> also.
Another thing that would need to be changed is <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN"> to <!DOCTYPE html>.
I did not realize that asking for this would cause this much discussion. I did not think this would be a controversial idea.
My OS is Debian 10 (Buster); my perl version is 5.28.1.
No matter how hysterical I get, my problems are not time sensitive. So, relax, have a cookie, and a very nice day!
