 So apparently you just found out one version of a fandom has decided to make a character adopted and wanted to write about another character's reaction.  Fine.  You decided to put a spoiler warning into your summary.  Also would be fine if the alert didn't read "This is a character name devlopment.  This is a spoiler."  AFTER a summary that says character was not his fathers boy.  And you titled the fic "Adopted".

I can't decide if you're a dumb ass who wants to spoil everyone who scrolls down that AO3 catagory or just dumb.

One of my friends, aloud, would talk about stuff from shows and then tag 'spoiler' onto the end of that, leading more than once to, 'you should say that BEFORE you spoil, not AFTER'. At least for myself, I don't care about spoilers and actually find sometimes spoilers help me get through things (like Homestuck), but plenty of other people don't.

Some people just do not think.

That... would actually be less spoilery without the spoiler warning. Because than people could assume it was just something the author came up with.
