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.
Yep. Pretty much.
Perhaps even a couple want to show they're superior to the many (perhaps the majority?).
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.
If knight takes then what?????????????????????????????????????
If 1...Nxh5 then 2. Bxf7+ Ke7 3. Nd5+ Kd6 4. Nc4#.
