The spoiler tag is the warning, that is its function.
I disagree. Information gleaned from real life events goes beyond being a spoiler and IMO doesn't belong here. At the very least, it merits a very specific warning.
I can understand that perspective, but that is not the current rule for spoilers.
Yeah we all know the rules, but it's a courteous thing to do to give a few word explanation of what is in the spoiler.
As simple as
on TD they said ....
A rumor about a cast member...
Hasn't been on the set in weeks ...
I don't understand what you are saying. What does "beyond a spoiler" mean? It should not be considered as a spoiler and therefore should not be in spoiler tags? Or that the entire info (gleaned from real life events) should be suppressed altogether from the thread (i.e., censored)?
I think that the revelation that Emily (aka Beth) was not seen on set for a period of time while Melissa (aka Carol) was on set gives the speculation (re: Beth's fate) credibility, and therefore qualifies as a spoiler.
The very next paragraph of the rules and guidelines says this:
The problem with the linked post is that one person put spoiler tags on speculation from other sites. This means whoever responded, if they were obeying the social norms here, would respond in spoiler tags whether or not they were actually spoiling anything. But the response was a full-on spoiler response to speculation.
People have to be very careful in labeling spoilers because those labels can become spoilers. For example, if someone labels a spoiler as an upcoming plot twist. That in itself becomes a spoiler because even though you might not have looked at the specifics of what the plot twist was, knowing one is coming can be a spoiler.
In one of MikeMar's examples saying "Hasn't been on the set in weeks" can imply that there is a character death. Now in Walking Dead that is pretty much expected but it is still a minor spoiler. Even mentioning casting can be seen by some as a spoiler.
The thing is that if someone has something in spoiler quotes and they don't label it appropriately and you don't want to be spoiled then don't click it. Just assume something without explanation is an extreme spoiler.
Exactly my point earlier....boo hoo....no tears here for the actress.
Exactly But honestly it doesn't bother me in the big picture of life all that much.
Back to the show.
Can anyone explain Dawn's attitude. I don't really understand her, she seemed reasonable but asking for Noah back seemed oddly inconsistent. Plus she was the one getting girls for the guys wasn't she ?
I think she was trying to maintain the feeling among her "staff" that she was in charge and still deserves respect. If she allowed Rick to simply kidnap a couple of her people and trade them back without losing anything, it would appear she had been taken advantage of, and was therefore weak. Demanding Rick hand over Noah was her attempt to maintain her facade of strength with the rest of the Grady residents.
The thing about that whole exchange that I found surprising and unbelievable is that once Dawn shot Beth and then Dawn herself was shot, the rest of the people with guns drawn and itchy trigger fingers were able to refrain from turning that hallway into a giant bloodbath.

Probably a hard show to renegotiate much. Who can't be killed off?
You saw the exit hole appear, right? Rick got splattered. With no experience in this, I assume that that was realistic (as opposed to walker heads).
Not fully ballistics-versed, but when Daryl shot Dawn in the head, wasn't there a real good possibility that the people behind Dawn were in the line of fire and could have/should have been hit? Or would his shot not have exited her skull?
It almost surely would have, but no telling in what direction or how many pieces the bullet might be in.
I thought he came at her at an angle...
I was pretty dissapointed in the entire hospital story line. I don't think they did a real good job explaining much. I never understood what happened with Beth, never really understood the cops...there only seemed to be about 5-6 of them and could have been overtaken.
I think that's how I feel. The hospital itself, and it's people, never made complete sense to me.
