Use each of these numbers once, 1 5 6 7 along with + - x / ( and ), to make 21

You mean, when you're trying to use the editor to create a spoiler, you are unable to do so successfully? Me, too. In both Internet Explorer and Google Chrome (worse in Chrome). So what you have to do is type the explicit syntax for a spoiler. It involves a few square brackets (open and close), an equal sign, a slash, and the word "spoiler", twice.

 

open-square-bracket the-word-spoiler equals-sign your-spoiler-title close-square-bracket all-the contents-of-the-spoiler-could be many lines open-square-bracket slash the-word-spoiler close-square-bracket.

 

Good answer on the puzzle! I could see, among a few possibilities, that 21 is half of 42, but I had no idea how to divide by 2.
