Any excuse, the setter is obviously not happy about it either. A lot of work must go into setting a good quiz so why give answers away.

I am slowly getting tired of these never-ending discussions of principle on whether the asking & answering of questions on quiz problems should be taboo on both these forums or not. I suggest for the future that the setter make absolutely clear from the beginning whether he/she wishes silence (possibly until just before closing date) or not. After all, one could argue that the discussion contributes to their popularity & thus to the total sum of proceeds. So far the vast majority of answers have definitely NOT been given, only additionalclues to the most difficult(and even there without any certainty).That is the legitimate function of "Help Forums".And once again: no-one is obliged to look in at all!Any more arguments left?

Yes , quite a lot of setters request no asking then only clues after a certain date but it isn't adhered to. I know one setter of really good quizzes who won't advertise them on here or AB because of all the answers given away. The clues that were given on this particular quiz might as well have been answers as they were so obvious and for the record I wouldn't say they were the hardest clues.
