You cannot get rid of me now.
Before being led around,
The middle of one, don't ask how.
Apply glue to the two and you've found
The thing which you've just solved.
It's also down there, below the fold.

The final answer is

RIDDLE - the question and the solution


  1. You cannot get rid of me now.
  2. Before being led around,
  3. The middle of one, don't ask how.
  4. Apply glue to the two and you've found
  5. The thing which you've just solved.
  6. It's also down there, below the fold.

First and third lines:

Taking 'the middle of one' - we get the middle word of line 1 - rid.

Second line:

Gives dle - anagram of led

Fourth and Fifth:

Putting the two together (apply glue) gives RIDDLE - what we just solved

Sixth:

The answer 'RIDDLE' is down below the question in the tags

  • $\begingroup$ I think with fold he means what seperates the question with the answers, and your answer, which is also the hidden riddle, is here below that line. $\endgroup$ – RnRoger Dec 16 '17 at 13:07
  • $\begingroup$ @RnRoger it could indeed be that... I'm going to wait for confirmation from Rand before adding because I'm pretty sure I've missed some stuff out. Good observation though! :) $\endgroup$ – Beastly Gerbil Dec 16 '17 at 13:09
  • $\begingroup$ You've got the right answer, but there's a lot of clues you haven't explained. You say "The first two lines contain the words ...", but the riddle is better constructed than that: you're not just meant to pick out random words :-) Also, lines 3 and 6? @RnRoger's guess is close but not quite what I intended. $\endgroup$ – Rand al'Thor Dec 16 '17 at 13:42
  • $\begingroup$ @Randal'Thor jut got the 'middle of one' line $\endgroup$ – Beastly Gerbil Dec 16 '17 at 13:46
