These pages must be deleted.

They are not in the spirit of Project Euler.

They are ruining the fun of problems and the fun of climbing up the ladder.

I am aware that whoever posted this is probably smart and would like us all to know.

Meanwhile:

RULE #1 of Project Euler:

You do not discuss Project Euler solutions.

RULE #2 of Project Euler:

You do not discuss Project Euler solutions.

Keep it in the problem threads.

I disagree. These are clearly marked as "spoilers". Anyone who wants to participate in Project Euler and enjoy its benefits knows that they should not peek at these solutions.

On the other hand, this problem space is perfect for illustrating the power of Haskell, and for providing excellent examples of how to "think in Haskell". I would refer anyone thinking of learning Haskell to these pages - with the warning that they might first want to solve all of the problems in their current favorite programming language.

My guess is that many people would look at the first few solutions, become hooked, and then redo the rest of them on their own in Haskell without peeking!

You kill the fun!

There is only way to publish solution - just protect access to it with right solution answer, as Euler protects access to forum's threads.

But in wiki - these pages must be deleted.

Note that if you delete these pages, it will be treated as vandalism and reverted.

Category tags are great for making the Haskell wiki easier to navigate. But having category tags on all of the detail pages of these problem sets has the opposite effect - it just clutters the category pages.

I am removing the category tags from all of the detail pages, and leaving them only on the main page.
