There seems to be a growing trend lately of question titles being edited to replace any object, person or plot point for a recent movie or TV episode with a vague "this X", resulting in titles like "Why did this person do this thing?"
An example from today (before):
Why wasn't the codex enough for Zod, in Man Of Steel?
Another recent example (before):
Why did McCoy need Khan to revive Kirk?
The first one, as far as I'm concerned, was perfectly fine prior to the edit. All it tells somebody is that there's something called a "codex" and that General Zod wants it; I recall that becoming pretty obvious within about five minutes of the movie starting, and doesn't seem like a spoiler to me at all.
The second needed editing, but the spoiler was that (just in case somebody still hasn't seen it)
Kirk dies and is revived
not that Khan was involved in making the serum; knowing that fact doesn't spoil the movie in any way.
Ideally looking for discussion on:
- Whether this is something we want to see continue
- Do we want/need any guidelines for determining what actually constitutes a spoiler (or are there any in place already)?
- How do we go about communicating all of this to users?
