Do "Terms of Service" apply to things in spoilers?

Is it acceptable to put porn or whatever within the spoiler and it be ok under the assumption that the viewer had to purposely open the spoiler to view.

Just curious

Spoilers are used for hiding explicit languages and graphic images which also apply to TOS.

Last year some users reported a new user who had obscene graphic image which was hidden in spoilers.
The user was automatically banned from the forums.

Ultimately, this is something davidt is going to need to answer but here is my opinion on the matter.

Posting porn is not allowed if it is actually embedded in the thread. If you want to post links that force the person to actually leave the site to view the image then you should be able to do that, at least in the pigsty.

The spoiler does force the person to click but it doesn't force them to leave the site.

I don't actually view images inline. I have that disabled. I actually had to click the link to see the picture behind the spoiler and I didn't realize where the images was.

If the references were to my blank, empty spoiler, I only put the spoiler there as an example of what a spoiler was, not to show a questionable image within it.

Putting a spoiler tag around something doesn't make it immune from the TOS. The tag should be used as intended, not as a form of abuse.

No, this was an image in the pigsty. This happened a few days ago.
