I recently asked this question, to which I have gotten three excellent answers. One of them contained somewhat of a spoiler, to which one user wrote a comment that spoilers should be put into the appropriate spoiler tags.
I suggested an edit, which puts the relevant part into spoiler tags and clarifies some phrasing. To my confusion, one person approved this edit, while two rejected them.
The reasons for rejection are unclear to me. One states that it "clearly conflicts with the author's intent", while the other states that "that type of markdown ('<') is reserved for quotations."
I don't understand how putting something that the OP themselves considers a spoiler into a spoiler tag is "going against the author's intent". Furthermore, how is the usage of a spoiler tag (
>!) "only reserved for quotations"? Is there any rule that states only spoilers that directly correlate to something spoken or written can be put into spoiler tags?
