    Exactly what are you 'hinting' at?

    Anyway, I don't want people like skeeter calling me a freeloading parasite.

    just your profile: 1 move made since you joined one year (almost) ago.

    No idea what you are referring to with "Anyway, I don't want people like skeeter calling me a freeloading parasite.".

    I give up on the puzzle. Teach me.

    A flame-war is brewing.

    By the way, with 13590 free moves you should stand up for the inalienable rights of your brother freeloaders and join your local Freeloaders' Union.
    Don't be cynical. Every move counts.

    (As for the puzzle, I have messaged you a megahint.)

    Don't be cynical. Your moves can make a difference.

    (for the puzzle: nice)

    For the rest: I will not be dragged into this crap. I only found it strange to find so many posts and so few moves.

    Are you sure castling is allowed? What was black's last move?

    Clearly black cannot castle. The pawns have not moved so black's last move had to be either the King or Rook. White's key move is therefore Qa1. Black has no defense against ......Qh8++
