Some time ago there were some acquaintances that shared a puzzle with me. Essentially the same as the one here Crack the lock code with different graphics. After coming to the conclusion that there are two answers to the puzzle, as stated in the answer I eventually posted, some discussion ensued. The discussion basically boils down to truthiness of the statement "two numbers are placed wrong" if you compare 062 to 206.
I came to the puzzling stack exchange expecting to find some answers that would support my conclusion that the answer to the question "Are two numbers placed differently if you compare 062 to 206?" is yes. I did not find such an answer so I posted one myself.
To make the answer to the posed question be "no" requires making some assumptions, mainly that two numbers means exactly two numbers. The fact that some of my acquaintances made these assumptions without questioning and argued that they are right appeared to me as a representation of everything wrong with society /s. Of course, the next day I did not care about it much, but I stumbled upon my answer again and was reminded of it.
Assuming that the question posted was missing a mastermind changes the meaning of the question. Based on my sample size of two questions on puzzling and said acquaintances I still feel sad, that I was the only one answering those questions and not applying some rules that are stated nowhere in the question. I am petty!!! Tell me I am right!!! But seriously, am I the only one seeing it like this? The title is specific to mastermind, but I think the general idea of changing the question you are answering based some assumptions could be a more general issue to discuss.
