PSA: STOP POSTING YOUR ANSWER IDEAS. It just bogs down the discussion and leaves your idea vulnerable to being stolen.
I think it's great that there are some serious discussions going on here, but a couple of important things I want to point out:
1) If you post a good idea, what stops me from stealing it and saying you stole it from me? Not saying I'm stealing anyone else's ideas, but your'e leaving yourselves really vulnerable by allowing your solutions to be discussed out in the open. It irritates me that some people are enabling cheaters.
2) If you do decide to post an idea, I guarantee you it is not "THE" solution to the problem. No one person is going to come up with a perfect solution on your first attempt. So if you decide you still want to discuss your own solution, be open to the ideas of others and for the love of God don't insult other people!
3) Here are the discussions that I think should be at the forefront here: discussing the issue, asking about technical details, looking for advice on solving one or another facet of the problem, and general discussion of methodology. But when people start posting "OMYGAWD LOLOLOL DIS IZ SO EAZY LUK AT MAH SOLUSHUN" all over the place and then insult those that try to poke any holes in these (admittedly half-baked) plans, it gets really frustrating really quickly for everyone else.
Sorry for the rant, I just want this discussion to be steered in a useful and productive direction.
