Idea/suggestion for spoiler tags

Saw it here:

Not sure if you need to log in or not...

Anyway, same basic idea we have except instead of having to highlight it, there's a mouse over tag that reveals the spoiler. Quite handy as it makes it white on black instead of white on blue.

That thread is also an excellent example as to why avatars and pics in sigs aren't allowed here. Good gravy!

Too fancy IMO. It's a good idea, and it could be easily modified to fire on the on_Click or on_ContextMenu event instead of on_MouseOver if white-on-blue is a problem (never bothered me before), but I'm not in favor of spoilers being revealed so passively. I think you should have to click something. Using the linked method to reduce the standard triple-click to a single click wouldn't bother me, but it could cause some confusion with highlighting parts of the text.

Anyway, cool idea. I just don't think it would work well here.
