Darth Vader is Luke's father

This topic can also apply to movies and books as well. When is a spoiler considered as common knowledge?

I'm guessing there's a certain point that simply not using the internet, newspapers, television, or radio cannot prevent spoilers from reaching an individual.

I think a spoiler is common knowledge when even the people that are unfamiliar with that series/movie/book know about it.

For example, Aerith's death, Superman's multiple deaths, the ending of "Remember Me", etc.
