My experience has been if you're avoiding option C, it's because you're focusing too much on option A or option B, and not on objective O.
I'm not saying go with the crowd just for the sake of it, but obviously you're having trouble and are reaching out to people of more experience, so why not listen to that experience? Chances are someone has been down this road before, and have decided that A and B seem like the better alternatives right now, but when you run into problem P and roadblock R, option C sounds pretty nice.
Of course you can always counter this by saying Mandate M and Manager PHB have decreed option C to be null and void (even in languages where those keywords don't exist), and there's no way for the answerer to know you're bluffing. This is deceitful and most certainly not in the spirit of StackOverflow.
Bottom line is If you're avoiding options for no reason, you're only hurting yourself as a problem solver, and missing an opportunity to learn.
