If you don't want to learn about a subject it might be best to avoid reading an encyclopedia article on it.

It's not always that easy. I was recently reading a fantastic book, not all at once from beginning to the end. So at some point, thrilled by the book, I just wanted to quickly check if the author was famous, if the book sold well, etc. I checked quickly the wikipedia page of that book trying (and succeeding, but still) to avoid getting spoiled. If you want to read it, it's "the fault in our stars" (but don't check wikipedia for it)

I remain proud to have done my bit to destroy the spoiler warning.

This. I am tried of all the spoiler whining.
