I didn’t miss his point at all. If someone is going to be triggered by the word, then they probably know enough not to go looking at the warnings behind the spoiler tag.
Except then they don't know they should avoid the scenario.
I used a relatively benign example. However, one part of his point was that trigger warnings need to be written sensatively to avoid being triggers themselves. A spoiler tag is not sufficient for that purpose because if you expect those with a trigger to merely avoid looking at all the spoiler tags, they don't know if their specific trigger is there or not. Either the warning was a waste of effort because it was unread or they avoid all scenarios with spoiler warnings.
