Fandom: Wherefore Thy Manners?

I don't get it... I've recently joined two different anime fandoms, and both of them seem to have a tendancy on the parts of the members to randomly spout spoilers with absolutely no warning. It's rather annoying. The attitude seems to be something along the lines of "well, I know it will take so long before someone translates this stuff, so I don't care about spoilers -- why should anyone else?" (Actually, I'm not convinced that they even consider anyone else.)

The thing is, both of these are fandoms that I would be willing to translate stuff for -- if the fans would stop pissing me off by dumping random spoilers. But my inclination to do nice things for people who are pissing me off is... small. Kind of non-existant, really.
