Very, I'm careful about what sites I visit until I know them.

I don't care one way or the other. In fact a spoiler might even make me interested in seeing a movie that I otherwise wouldn't have.
No locked doors, no windows barred. No more things to make my brain seem SKARD.

Not very, I don't recall spoilers ever ruining the experience for me.
Everything will be fire.

I go for spoilers.

A little, I just don't actively visit places that I know will be full of spoilers

Very, I hate spoilers. I don't have it in me to disconnect from the internet entirely though.

I try to avoid spoilers as much as I can. But sometimes I think that to avoid completely, you'd have to never log on the internet.
Because you never know when and where an idiot could post spoilers.
It happened to me before: I was on a Facebook page about WILD ANIMALS and some idiot posted spoilers for Star Wars Episode 7. How could I have expected that??
The best way to not get spoiled is to play the game or go see the movie ASAP.

i try to avoid spoiler when its likely i could play or watch the thing.

unfortunately for me, there is very little i can play or watch and when i do, it usually take years upon years before i ever truly touch it.

I don't really run into spoilers.

So, I don't specifically change my browsing habits frankly.

The main thing that would spoil for me here and there was YouTube. I'd just be enjoying a video and I'd glance to the side and see the "Coming Up / Related Videos" and see like "GameFAQs Plans a Surprise! Tagging System Added Soon!"

Naturally, I very much dislike that. I started to try and ignore it more so but I just end naturally gleaming over it.

So, the last time YouTube decided to do that. I got fed up and found this extension:

So now it's just blank, nothing is there. Which is perfect for me. I didn't ask for spoilers with my videos, go away.

If it's something that I know I'm going to play eventually, then yes I try to avoid as many spoilers as I can. I'll read up on some of the major happenings (i.e new characters, gameplay additions/removals) but never delve any deeper than that.
