Recently I've been toying with the idea of going through Crandall and Pomerance's Prime Numbers: A Computational Perspective cover-to-cover, to the best of my ability. However, it's a very difficult book, definitely for me and I think for anyone. The most difficult problems in each chapter are open research questions, so the book is as difficult as you want it to be. The non-starred, non-research problems are plenty hard for me.
If I were to slowly post questions I get stuck on here, then eventually math.stackexchange.com would have a partial solutions manual for Crandall and Pomerance. I've decided not to do this, because I love that book, and I wouldn't want to do something that would be harmful to it. I would anyway not do such a thing without asking the authors, which I am not willing to do.
I am anyway posting this question because I thought about it quite a lot over the last few days, and I think it'd be good if the community had their own answer. The same situation is bound to come up with self-study from other books. Maybe there's already an answer somewhere; I found this, but it doesn't quite answer my question.
Is it OK to slowly post a large number of textbook problems, with the motivation to get help when you get stuck with non-homework self-study questions, and the knowledge that this might render the book's problems unusable for a class by some people's standards?
