I like to browse this site with my iPad and I noticed that there's no way to make spoilers visible. On your normal browser, the spoilers become visible on mouse-over, but such a thing doesn't really exist on a multitouch device. Maybe adding the same behavior on click would resolve the issue (eg. toggle spoiler visibility on click)?

    It's considered fixed for mobile devices: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/75656/… -- the iPad is not considered one though

    You can still click on the mobile link though in the footer.

  • It works on iPhone (tap on the spoiler and it shows up) so it isn't an iOS issue.

  • @AshleyNunn Yes, it seems that it's an iPad only problem. I could use the "mobile" version of the site, although the regular one seems better suited for a device like the iPad.

The workaround is to switch to the mobile version of the site.

As others noted, iPad is not considered a mobile device, just a regular desktop type browser device.
