This question raised the issue of questions that do not make mention of being golf questions. Sometimes answerers assume it's a golfing question and golf it, leading others to follow suit and then a non-golfed answer looks out of place.
We badly need a way to enforce distinction of golf vs non-golf questions. I think the solution is to enforce one of a set of tags (like on meta) that defines the puzzle type is the solution. Any other ideas?
