What counts as spoilers?

My view of spoilers is that anything "officially" announced i.e. BBC, Hartswood, Sue Vertur, Mark Gatiss or (cause they're practically official) Sherlockology isn't a spoiler. Anything that come off filming that hasn't been officially released is (hence my upset today as what I was told was what had been filmed).
The thing about Sherlock is that we know what might be and thus I think speculation of the kind you're talking about is fine. In fact it's more than fine, it's brilliant and i'll happily join in :)
It's what they're actual filming I don't want to know about!

Sounds to me like you and I are in complete agreement on this. Anything officially released in not "spoilers" while anything fan generated from set reports and the like is. Assuming everyone is familiar with the Conan Doyle canon, or at least can't be "spoiled" on anything for it, is fine. Speculating based on the possible intersection points between said officially released publicity information and said Conan Doyle canon is beyond fine and is in fact brilliant.

That seems fair, and I'm talking as someone who sticks their fingers in their ears and yells "remote!" as soon as the "next week's ep" info starts on the TV. I prefer to avoid trailers, cast interviews and speculation but I don't throw my toys out of the pram if other people talk about them. Filming, on the other hand, and non authorised cast details deserves spoiler warnings at least.
