While viewing the information on the Resident Evil 5 tag I noticed that the details contain what is potentially a spoiler (the bit about Jill).

Now arguably, in this instance, it may not be such a big spoiler. But what is the correct course of action should there be a major spoiler written in?

    This particular tag wiki needs to be rewritten entirely, as it was plagarized off GameFAQs (or other).

As it was written there, the spoiler seemed completely gratuitous (provided it is a spoiler), so I've edited it out.

Spoilers in tag wiki excerpts seem like a waste of the premium space tag excerpts have. Tag wikis explain why you should and shouldn't use a tag and are not the place to explain the plot of a game.

Spoilers in tag wikis can be used if it makes sense to, however. Keep in mind that the spoiler syntax >! works there as well.
