What sporting spirit? The site itself doesn't indicate any such thing 
whatsoever and doesn't ask that people don't post solutions - as such, 
anything you have to say here is entirely about the culture on the forums 
there, not the problem set itself.

As such, you've taken it upon yourself to enforce the spirit of your PE 
participation upon others. That's far from sporting and in direct 
violation of the spirit of the wiki. Let people play how they choose.

Can you demonstrate this? A statement from the author that they didn't 
consent, for example?
