I am a new user on the site. I recently answered a puzzle by addressing the dead giveaway clue in the puzzle, here. There is nothing else it could have been.
Another user, downvoted the answer saying, I quote
"This answer was already given, and you didn't even address the other clues."
First of all, nothing else could have been the answer.
Second of all, if someone presents a clue like that, you don't need anything else to solve the riddle.
So my question is,
Am I supposed to address each and every single clue even though one clue gives away the answer?
Can't I answer on a question which already has an answer?
Or am I supposed to present a different (although wrong) answer to the same riddle, as another user did in the same question?
