these releases are something people are looking forward to months/years in advance

Tell that to people who cannot shut up about subjects such as Aeris' death in Final Fantasy VII, but, then again, that also shows the quality of the story. If the plot for a media relies on the viewer having to be "spoiler-free" on the story, doesn't that show how weak it is? The previous poll was just about how often people will re-experience a series, but the thing about returning to a series is that you'll know everything that will happen. So, all the surprises are already spoiled and all that's left is the execution.

Now if it's a relatively new series (has been out for less than 2 years), then I would be sure to avoid bringing up the biggest plot points or reveals that have come up up to the most recent chapters.

This is why I think we should never give spoilers. We all have different timetables, so we can't estimate how long you should wait before starting giving spoilers freely.
I feel you... I've dropped a series because of that.

1) I will never give away spoilers to a series that I am specifically recommending to someone (for example, if I were to be recommending One Piece to someone who I knew had never read it, I wouldn't say "don't get too attached to Ace" ) , but in a public forum (like this one) I don't think it matters at all.
2) I do personally adhere to "a few months" before talking about e.g. movies that contain major plot spoilers in real-life public spaces, but I don't begrudge people who spoil them the day after release, especially on the internet (by, say, making a youtube video with a spoiler in the title)--if someone cared that fucking much, they would've seen it on launch night because they should know that's the only way to avoid spoilers on The Internet. I know people that do media blackouts for things they actually care about, and I respect their dedication even though I'm nothing like them.
3) The one thing I don't think is okay is bringing spoilers for unreleased content outside of forums dedicated to spoilers for that content. It's not even that I personally mind (I don't, at all), but unlike spoilers for released content, I can totally understand why that would be infuriating, hypothetically. The "snape kills dumbledore" spoiler rightfully pissed a shitton of people off--even if those people were in line for the midnight release and didn't fall asleep until they finished the book (like my sister did), they still had a super gigantic plot point spoiled for them early. And iirc, a few people got outright banned from apforums (again, justifiably lol) for bringing "OMG ACE DIES" out of the spoiler subforum before a full scanlation of the chapter was available.
So although my real opinion, especially for the internet, is "any time you want" [for released content], I put "at least a few months after release" as my answer to the poll since that's what I adhere to in real-life public spaces. But I only even wait that long more as a social grace than because I think it's really justified. It's hard to take the moral high ground when a movie released last week 😛
