I'd say the current way we've been doing things has been working pretty well. I think once the current issue is out, it's a courtesy to label your post "spoiler", but I don't think everyone after said post needs to do it. Once a spoiler is out there, the nature of the discussion is to comment on what is posted before it. A good balance of fair warning and reader's discretion is advisable.
