Just forget what you read. There is a *lot* of context built into that spoiler that you don't know about yet, so if you're able to ignore and forget it then you'll be fine.

Fair enough, I just have a terrible history with remembering spoilers. Like, I heard a spoiler for the Final Empire's ending years before hand, and I couldn't forget it.

I suggest learning to enjoy the change from enjoying not knowing where things will go to enjoying spotting how they get there. That's what I did, and now I don't have to give a poo poo about spoilers!

WHY DO YOU PAY SUCH CLOSE ATTENTION?

But seriously, that can't be a coincidence.

The reason for Atium existing doesn't exist anymore though so if it's there now it's for an entirely different reason. Namely Sazed decided that for the sake of balance atium still should form because it lets him balance out any excess Ruin with the Preservation in humanity. Though as Harmony I imagine he has full control over both things and that it would take something on a god-like level, namely another shard itself, to shatter Harmony back in to Ruin and Preservation.

Sazed was beyond careful in his actions and "oh whoops guess I let this godly material just show up again" would be very unlike him as Harmony. Not to mention if the Kandra still exist in any form, or were remade in some way, they might be back to acting as collectors and keepers of it.

It's still a good read despite that poster being a massive dick.

I had someone spoil the "Young Griff" thing before I got to A Dance With Dragons and it sucked but didn't make the book any worse (or better ).
