Default Policy on Spoilers?

Hello all, as you can probably guess I'm new here.

Before I dive in and start posting I wanted to find out what the policy is regarding spoilers. Obviously any news about new books etc. may contain spoilers and I understand we have a spoiler tag to hide them, but what if I was to casually mention something that's old news to me but another member might not know (the ending to Moreta for example) as part of a bigger discussion?

Is it simply accepted fact that members will occasionally come across info they haven't read yet or should I put a warning at the top of the post/hide the info anytime I mention anything that might be suprising?

Welcome to MoM, Danikat!

We only worry about spoilers for books that are new (i.e. less than a year old). Spoilers for older books do not have to be marked obviously, as it would seriously hinder discussion if we worried tht any mention of plot details could spoil someone.
