I think that the issue is not that people are not interested (the $3$ upvotes on a question with no work by the asker is evidence of that) but that the interest should not trump site standards.
The question was asked with no thoughts by the asker added on, and it has fairly recently become the general consensus that questions of this sort should be put on hold until the asker shows some work. (Even a simple comment like "I tried to solve this but am not sure where to start" is usually enough to prevent closure. People like to see any form of proof effort put into a question.) This is not to say that people that ask questions like this haven't bothered to do anything, it's just that for several reasons users of the site seem to agree that this work should be shown in the question. No matter how good the question may be, this doesn't change the fact that this aspect of it is not up to scratch.
In this case, I agree with the comment made by Thomas, you should feel very welcome to post your own version of the question and put down some of your own thoughts. Ideally, you would mention the original and include a link to it for reference. I am sure that it is an interesting question and will receive a good amount of attention, as long as it is asked in accordance with the guidelines for the site!
