Two weeks ago I posted this question: What is a good formalization of this classic math puzzle?

The question was closed within hours (presumably based on a misunderstanding), I made some edits a few hours later to clarify what the actual question is and why it is research relevant. Since then I see a private note saying "This post was edited and submitted for review". It seems to me that this question was never reviewed again. Apart from posting this issue here, there seems nothing else I can do?

As part of my edits to the question, I included the following explanation why this is research relevant:

"My original formulation of this posting was marked "off-topic" and closed, presumably because it was considered too philosophical. However, providing careful logical formalizations is clearly a question at the very heart of mathematics, e.g. the formalization in terms of rationally maximizing payoffs that I am alluding to above is simply a standard sequential game. So I am clearly asking a math question within the scope of this forum. Notice also that I am not interested in this little math olympiad problem itself -- that would not be research relevant -- but in the mathematical framework required for its formalization. For example, the Mathematics Magazine articles on "A Calculus for Know/Don't Know Problems" and "Goldbach, Lemoine, and a Know/Don't Know Problem" referenced by Gerald Edgar in his answer below are very relevant and interesting in that regard. By closing this question you have deprived other researchers and me from posting equally insightful answers. I really hope you will reopen this question"
