You need to state precisely what your problem is.

First of all, minimization and maximization problems are not
NP-complete; NP-complete problems either return YES or NO.

You might be talking about the "threshold" version [...]

Don't be too hard on the guy. One can easily find citations
on "minimum sum of squares", including that it is NP-hard.
He's just looking for a clear demonstration.
