So, yet another CC problem has been trashed by the OP, and what replies remain are disjoint and meaningless without context.
Is it even worth bothering with these threads?
If it's not a flat out copy/paste of the assignment without any effort, it's some half-baked brute-force attempt which inevitably results in Time Limit Exceeded.
Even where the OP seems genuine, drive-by 1-post malcontents start flagging things like crazy.
So, replying in any substantive form seems like a waste. If it doesn't go over the OP's head, someone else will flag it to stop the OP getting their free lunch. Either way, the long-term benefit to the wider community is zilch.
the same may be said about the usual homework questions, but I think that the problem in this case case is that the op is being reported, and as they are a new user, the account is banned and their posts deleted.

somewhere they need to learn about algorithm complexity

sorry, don't understand what you mean.

as almost any of the other questions here
About the question in question, I was originally going to string the OP along, but instead said something sensible. But like you say, the braindead keep coming, "can you explain it some more?" What are these people even doing? Why are they bothering with these "competitions" if they can't even think straight?
(And I hear Chef's a bit iffy.)
But overall, who cares?
People should "answer" if they feel like it.
I generally don't.
I have no idea why occasionally I do.
But really, who cares?
The meaningless thread will sink and disappear.
The stupid will remain stupid.
The world will keep turning.
And eventually we will all die.
Sorry, I don't get this, could edit your original post. I made a poem aswell.
Suprisingly, I am unfamiliar with this codechef pandemic. Can you more restrictively explain the actual distasteful element?
Little Elisk Cutter
Towered a gutter
Relishing a bag of pumpkin seeds
He put in his finger
Pulled out a ringer and said
what a good programmer am I...
He choked on the pit, and died
With little, to care for his demise
