I agree with AmeNoJaku that "background information" is not the same thing as a "spoiler".

The problem with anime adaptions is that they have time constraints that prevents them from giving full and complete explanations about the setting which frequently causes the audience to not understand or even completely misunderstand the situation.

Spoiler in my book is when you tell something that has yet to happened or that has yet to be revealed, not something that was supposed to be told already in the original story but which was lost in adaption.

If this forum's policy forbids any kind of information that isn't esplicitly mentioned in the adaption, I suggest to specify that, rather than simply forbid "spoilers" as this can cause confusion.
