What I hate about Spoiler Tags

I hate the fact that when I print out a thread the spoiler tags are removed. When I am “working” in the office I will occasionally print out a thread to read while I stand outside to smoke (damn California). And darn it if stuff doesn’t get spoiled for me ‘cause the tags disappear.

What I want (no, demand) is that all spoiler tags print out as “scratchers” so I can maintain the integrity of the thread.

Thank you.

Maybe it's karma telling you to give up smoking?

You know, like Lottery Scratchers. I can scratch off the spoiler tag with my zippo if I want.

The hard thing is implementing the animated gifs on the page.

You think that's hard? Try implementing hyperlinks.

I've almost got it down.

If you get Flash movies working, I'll really be impressed.

scratchers... right..

Why not just read it and then go smoke outside and Not waste the paper to print half of these threads.. Hell, 90% of them are just a waste of time.

Actually, the better solution is to print out the threads and use them for rolling papers. I have to say, the Other Threads are perfect for when you need a little motivation to get through your work day. Careful which ones you choose to inhale though...

I'm sorry, but serious posts that are actually responsive to the thread-starter's inquiry are strongly discouraged. Now please edit your post to make it a joke about printing out photos from the mature forum. Thank you.

You can always do what I do. Keep a roll of duct tape handy and cover the posts manually. Then scratch the duct tape off with a quarter.

What? Why is everyone looking at me like that?
