If a request seems a bit odd/off, or it seems that the poster's not really sure what they're asking about, or something doesn't seem to make sense... I generally try to make a guess as to what the *actual* question is. As you (chromatic) said, I often push a whole bunch of possible approaches at the poster, hoping that one might lead to a solution, or at least a better understanding of possible approaches.
