A lateral puzzler creates a new puzzle in the LTPF. A puzzle so obvious that it is 99.9% certain to be solved in the first posting. Why?

Is there any other puzzle running now that is relevant? Any of the classics relevant? Is this puzzle referring to itself? Relevant that it's 99.9% certain, other than the fact that it may be too presumptuous to say 100%?

Is it to test whether the upgraded system works for new postings?

Is there any other puzzle running now that is relevant? Apart from this one, you mean? Yes.
Any of the classics relevant? No
Is this puzzle referring to itself? No (I hope not, anyway)
Relevant that it's 99.9% certain, other than the fact that it may be too presumptuous to say 100%? No, just as you say, it may be too persup.. presmupt... persom... hm. It might just take more than one posting in spite of my virtual certainty that it won't

Is it to test his moderator privileges? Aww, I was considering to say that you should probably stay on the sidelines of this puzzle, since you had privileged information, but I decided against it. Anyway, yes.
