Ok, this is really getting on my nerves, and probably is the same for a lot of you out there. There are the normal posters, and then there are those who put endless spoiler chains in their signatures. An example is below:
We've got to stop this madness. Those who put endless spoiler chains in their signatures should be given a warning, and if they don't stop, they should have their signature reset and be given a ban on editing their signature for a specified amount of time(minimum of 30 days). Hopefully this will teach those people not to put such annoying things in their signatures that basically pique someone's curiosity and get them to click the spoilers endlessly for minutes, sometimes hours.
Giving people a warning for this is nothing short of insane. It doesn't break any rules unless they put something offensive or rule breaking in the last spoiler. It could technically be counted as trolling but if you open more than two and keep going you really brought it on yourself.

Goodness, it is not like it is harming you... If it is attracting your curiosity, then it is your fault for being so... easily distracted by silly, frivolous signatures which simply provide a form of immature entertainment to anyone who feels the urge to click it.
Complaining about such petty matters is really not needed since it is not forcing you to click it. It does not have a giant popup that requires you to click it till you can close it!
Giving people infractions for this would be silly; they are not breaking any rules and it is not hurting anyone with a little common sense to not click these!
Signatures can be ignored. They're not inappropriate and because of text limitations they can only go so far. After 3 spoilers or so you should know what type of signature and is and just leave it be. It's not hurting you nor anyone else. It's just a bit of fun (I actually did do your example, it was kind of fun). So harm done, no action needed.
If this does not break any rules then I see no reason in ending it. It is your choice to click the spoiler tab, and to keep clicking them until you reach the end. In the future, if you run into one, just don't keep pressing the button. Again, it breaks no rules and causes no harm.
