There was absolutely no indication what this spoiler referred to, and now I know what Principal Wood's big secret is. Given that I read the message in the _alt.tv.angel_ newsgroup, I think a "spoilers for upcoming episodes of Buffy" would have been in order. You do this a lot, which is why I'm finally saying something. I personally would appreciate some consideration.
