I think many take 7 as a suggestion and the most I have ever seen it enforced is someone responding with "please mark spoilers" and it isn't even a mod saying it most of the time. It is nice to have how to do it listed on the side, I know there is a button in comments as well but so many people play dumb or don't even try to find things unless it is suggested to them.

Except that sometimes there is a discussion topic that implies there will be spoilers. Having a topic as "When did you cry from a video game?" or "What was your favorite ending?", to then complain that someones comment doesn't have a spoiler tag is utterly retarded. Especially if the comment is about something from 10+ years ago. That's like complaining in /v/movies that you didn't point spoiler tags around "The Titanic sinks."

I can see we are working for one basic difference in point of view. yours seems to be the mods enforcing all rules via removals and and doing so every time a violation comes up. Mine is from the past actions of the mods in that they mostly just issue a reminder rather then deleting content. could thing change yes, but they have not been that way with the current mods. I would say think back but in the last month this is the only topic in /v/gaming that you have joined in discussing. I know that with one mod leaving someone will step up but I expect that they will be vetted by the other mods here as /v/gaming has had some of the best mod behavior I have seen on the site. Am I making unfounded expectations about the mods, yes because they have earned my belief in them through the actions I see them take or not take each day.

In the last month they have removed <10 posts (a fair chunk of that is people posting streams of sporting events), the last comment removal was 4 months ago.
