So, what's Cueball up to out of frame this time? It doesn't look like he's doing something with the trebuchet, unless maybe fetching ammo for it.

A cow, maybe? A large wooden rabbit?

OK, kidding about car parts aside, yes, but the tag that was designed to hide such spoilers until you take an action to see them is also the easiest way to hide things that you might want hidden for other reasons, like size or redundancy. So, that's how they get used here.

It means to put it in spoiler tags to hide it unless you click on it to view it.

all correct, kidding about car parts aside, yes, but the tag that be-did designed to hide such spoilers until you take an action to see them be also the easiest way to hide things that you may-did want hidden for other reasons, like size or redundancy. So, that be how they get wield-did here.

*pouts,* well that be just stupid. it be a misuse of spoiler-ed-ness. SPOILER-ABUSE! SPOILER-ABUSE!

Yes, it did occur to me in writing that that it's much like the difference between the old days of using HTML to make things look the way you want, and the newer way of using HTML to indicate what you mean, and CSS to make it look right. This use of spoilers being akin to the old HTML way, of course.

Actually I'm confused by the filters. It seems sometimes they work and sometimes they don't. :|

As far as the hats go, I think it's safe to say that I'm pretty well set. Unless my hat, pre-dating Time itself, needs a hat of its own??

Good point. The one I posted was just a spoiler; you went beyond the call, and showed us spoiler abuse.
