Once you type the words, you change the "color" to White so it matches the screen. Then, when the other reader highlights it, it shows up against the blue. You can see what is going on if you hit the "quote" button on her post.

Another site I'm on has a "spoiler" wrap around. It's good for not only jokes, but you can use it when discussing The Olympics or TV shows so you don't give away the plot to folks in other areas of the world who might not have seen the programs yet.

Oh, and that our bonus checks would be smaller due to the half million dollars they blew on this experiment.
Operator-you and I could go on for hours on this topic! We decided here that MBA actually stands for Masters of Blithering Assininity because that's who's in charge at DH's power plant and has no clue how the place runs, so he allows them to waste $$$ day after day trying to do things that were proven not to work 10 years ago (remember that every time you pay your electric bill!).

Yes, I use spoiler tags on another site, too. I don't see them here though, so I had to improvise.

Spoiler tags are pretty cool though. You can use them for quizzes, too.... or just to be annoying.

Oh no, that's not the reason your bill is so high. It's because you DH and my X are paid sooooooo outrageously for doing a hard and hazardous job. It's couldn't possibly be the overpaid dumb*sses running the show.
