A bit half and half for me.
Sometimes I don't mind them, as knowing what's to come makes you look forward to the show/game in general.
Other times, I would prefer to see the story unfold as it gets told.

It really depends on the show for me. If it's something I'm really enjoying I avoid spoilers. If I'm getting that trainwreck vibe I'll spoil myself to see if I should bother finishing the series.

I really don't mind most spoilers and they even sometimes give me an intrest in the shows, but what I really dislike is when the spoiler is about a character dying, thats just something that should not be spoiled, because for me at least it ruins the anime

I don't mind them too much, but I feel kind of bad for the authors that worked hard to make their stories if I read things ahead of time.

it depends how much information is said, sometime it doesn't matter, specially it you kind of know that it was going to happen, anime can be very predicable.

I welcome spoilers if I'm somewhat interested in the franchise. There's just too much info to go around if you dig deeper. All those sound dramas from Nanoha? I don't think I have time to go through all of them to help fill in my jigsaw of knowledge about the series.

I enjoy reading them, even knowing that i the anime would become quite predictable after knowing enough info of them [no more surprise factor]....
...
Its a really bad habit

Actually, many series do have the same general gist in them. It's all in the execution, as Napoleon (I think) would say.

I don't care much about spoilers myself. The problem I see is a good chunk of the posts that have spoilers in it, the spoiler itself is unnecessary to the post comment. The spoiler could be avoided.

It's kind of a bad manner/habit or even a total disrespect toward others when people comment really big spoilers that would ruin the experience to a lot of folks there.

In general I hate spoilers with a passion. I love a good story development, plot twists interesting events that can carry a show or have a big influence on a characters behaviour. If you know in advance what gonna happen alot of the mystery and surprise a show has to offer is gone. And it's really the mystery I tend to love.
I guess that's why I dislike storylines that are shallow or very predictable, you can guess the outcome quite easy. No surprise = no fun. For the same reasons I tend to avoid anime of which i read the manga or the other way around.
Of course this doesn't really apply to a good comedy where the story is of second importance and the real main theme is the jokes. I also ain't to bothered by spoilers for first episodes of a new show, the more you know the higher the change you get interested and decide to give the show a try, and those spoilers don't really ruin the whole storyline anyway.

Hmmm.... I guess I would be angry if I'm told how the story advances (though not very worked up), compared to "what" the story is. The journey's usually more exciting than the end. Also, manga-to-anime works can be interesting if the seiyu are good.

I voted 'indifferent towards them' 'cause a majority of the time, they don't really affect me. Sometimes I even enjoy reading them depending on the occasion/show.

Spoilers in anime in general? I voted "don't like'm". But to be honest, it's half-n'-half. If it's an anime I'm particularly interested in or that I plan on watching, I will avoid the spoiler buttons when browsing said-anime's forum here. But if I have no plans on watching it, let me know.

At the same time, I'm being a bit of a hypocrite. I hate surprises. If something makes me that anxious after a cliffhanger, I would like a sip of what's to come before being presented the whole shpeel. This can apply to games and movies as well.

Hate them is a strong word, but I am unsatisfied if I see something that I shouldn't have. I don't complain about it too much, but it would have been so epic if I wasn't told what was going to happen.

I simply hate them. Although what I hate more are spoilers without labels, which leaves me with a feeling of great curiosity although I can't risk opening it and be angry with me later. This spoiled Clannad (movie), Death Note, and TTGL for me. However, I'm not as mad as I should be, why? That is because not only did I see multiple instances of those spoilers inside unlabeled spoiler tags, but I also see them without spoiler tags, so I don't regret seeing that first unlabeled spoiler as much. It's one of those things where if you didn't watch it when it aired, it will be talked about so much that eventually someone will let it slip.
