A spoiler is when you discuss the events of a later chapter in the thread for an earlier chapter.
Speculation is never a spoiler. However, speculation should always be posted in the thread for the most recent chapter you have read.
Comments or parts of comments pointing out typographical errors will be removed at the same time as the errors themselves are removed. Thanks for paying attention!
