Why is my spoiler formatting not working? https://meta.stackexchange.com/a/271521/310756

I've fiddled around with it and I cannot get my comments to be hidden.

Spoiler blocks can't be followed immediately by regular text. I guess you mistakenly added a line break in between.

Your code looked like this:

>! a
>! c
>! d

! a b ! c ! d

While it should be:

>! a
>! b
>! c
>! d

a b c d
