I was looking at fight club, a movie that looked really interesting and that was #1 on my to watch list. Although, I hadn't really gotten to it yet. I went to the page today to look at a good review without spoilers, and after I had finished, I started to scroll up, and then bam! There was a big fat, terrible spoiler directly in the preview of the "frequently asked questions" section, basically ruining the entire movie. This was hugely disappointing, and I will not be watching the movie for a while longer. Beware to viewers, and to admins, please hide the spoiler.

I have edited the headlines of two questions in the FAQ page that referred to the film's ending. There are other questions that refer to the film's plot, but it's hard to avoid that completely.

It may be a good idea for IMDb to remove the preview of the FAQ items since there is little oversight of what users add to the section.

I believe staff can shuffle down certain FAQs if there are spoilers in the titles, I'm pretty sure I've reported similar problems and got them taken off the previews.

edit: yep:

I think the selection of questions on the title page alternates, so it's not so easy to tell which questions may be displayed.

I have to say I'd be surprised if the data staff did anything at all about a FAQ page.
