This is a very short guide on how to spot and avoid Clickbait. This very short article also exists to stop YOU, you , you and especially YOU on how to avoid posting Clickbait and becoming one of “those guys”.
To avoid being labeled a poster of Clickbait simply apply the following thought…
If you label something “spoiler” when it clearly is not a spoiler then you are making clickbait. When it comes to working out what is and what is not a spoiler its this simple …
Has the news your are reporting on been posted in an official print magazine or official website before you have reported on it? … If this is the case the news IS NOT a spoiler or leak in ANY way!
However! If the news you are reporting on is a leak I.E no one outside of the production company knows about this and the public was not meant to know then it IS a spoiler!

PRINTED / OFFICIAL news posted on public outlets are called “teasers” or even “trailers” ( like the universe survival arc TEASER TRAILER that was aired on Japanese TV).
Quite a few including some of the self-proclaimed “biggest” Dragon Ball content creators deliberately overlook this bit of semantics but at the same time they will go out of their way to belittle and delegitimize other content creators ( who they don’t even know) as producers of “Clickbait”.
Hopefully this shines some light on this bullcrap behavior by some of the self proclaimed “best dragon ball news sources”.
Oh yes! before i forget, I promised to say how to AVOID Clickbait.
Its really VERY simple …. avoid Clickbait.
