Possibly an unnecessary question, but curiosity got the best of me.

My question hasn't been answered for almost 2 weeks. I'm a bit impatient and I'm waiting for someone to answer it so I can work on the next part of the puzzle.

This sparked a question, not exactly for this puzzle, but in general.

Is there ever a point in time where a question has been too hard (or maybe, too inactive), that it's best for the author to give the answer away?
Whether it be for the satisfaction of finding the answer, or just a new way to look at the puzzle.
If there is, when do you think that point should be and why? If not...why not?

If this is a duplicate question, I'll remove it promptly. Just let me know.
