    The most plausible reason seems that he doesn't want to reveal the difficulty of the problems to other participants as the scoreboard is public

    plz don't mention somebody in comment without any reason. That so annoying for them. And definitely not "the tourist"!

      You're a bit quick to blame ratism for downvotes. I'd guess most of your downvotes come from a thought process like this:

      Some guy posted a troll comment. I did not like the troll comment (because I was probably trolled by it). Somebody else posted a comment saying the troll comment was cool/good/whatever. I disagree so I'm going to downvote that as well.
