Inspired by a statement from another topic, I have one question for everyone. Just simple question. My intention is to find the current state of opinion of general public.

I do not want long arguments, just answer the question, please. Consider this a quick poll in the street in a city where only problemists live. We can argue later, if the results of the quick poll prove inconclusive. Well, we can argue in any case. But here, you have just a few seconds to express your opinion.

If you read (e.g. in just received The Problemist) about series helpmate in n moves, what is it for you?
- fairy condition?
- stipulation?
- something else?

Edit: Removed parentheses from some answers after Joost's, Harry's and Rajendiran's posts (they have answered with parentheses seen). My intention was to clarify, but perhaps it is not necessary, as this might lead to skewed results.

The seriesmovers are a genre. The problems can be both orthodox, heterodox and fairies. It depends from stipulation and type of pieces.
