    Hypothesis: many (perhaps a majority?) of the players asking about Nxh5 don't actually want an answer, they just want to show that they're smarter than the puzzle.

    Consider it a riff on Socrates' "I'm only wise because I realize I'm a fool." I also wondered about Nxh5, but rather than puffing myself up by pointing it out, I checked the comments and found out that someone had already explained it.
