I remember before the forums went through that bigass change, if you wanted to put some sensitive information that could spoil the game for someone else, it would be within a black bar looking thing and if you highlighted it, you would see the text. Now, if you want to put a spoiler, it has to be in a drop-down menu. Don't get me wrong, I like the drop-down menu, but why isn't there an option for the old format? The drop-down doesn't really help if the spoiler itself is within a sentence. For example:

I was playing this one mission in GTA 5 and out of nowhere, Trevor walks up to

Spoiler
and eats a hamburger with him.

A very similar alternative to the old spoiler tag is to do this:
  • Click on the 'Special BB Code Button:

  • Click on 'Background Color and enter 'Black' as Option and write the spoiler in the Content:

  • Then Color the text as Black (Not Automatic but Black, it's the top left option, as shown below):

Result:
Hello UT!
(You need to select the text to view it)

Using your example:
I was playing this one mission in GTA 5 and out of nowhere, Trevor walks up to Pringles Man and eats a hamburger with him.
