Debunking the "lead dog" myth

Debunking the "lead dog" myth
So many searchers think they are the "lead dog." That proclamation is a tell that they really aren't the lead dog. This game has been going on for 8 years and all self-described "lead dogs" have been eliminated by their naive declaration.

So how can you tell if you are the real lead dog or a fake lead dog? There are many ways to increase the odds, but none are 100% without the chest in hand. So what is one of them?

Answer: The riddle. Fenn said, "If you're gonna find the treasure, you're gonna HAVE to solve the riddle in my poem."

Hear that? "Have to" which means must, a requirement, a necessity. Fenn provides very few absolutes so when he does, the searcher has to abide. And don't even think about rationalizing with that Fennspeak crap.

Since solving the riddle is one requirement for solving the poem; if you have not solved the riddle, you cannot be the lead dog. You can be the 2 clue solver, you can be the 500 footer, you can be the 200 foot searcher, but if you have not solved the riddle, you got nutt'n!

So all you "lead dog" proclaimers can stick to what you know: roll over, beg and play dead !!!

Top Secret-

In a way, you "half" it right. The riddle is at the end of the poem. The key to solve it is in the title, again and again.

You seem to be very afraid of the lead dog.

These are all just my ideas. I hope no one uses them.

Again I will place an IMO on your comments as they come without proof.

I eat lead dogs for breakfast!

What makes you think I haven't solved the riddle to his poem?

the searcher in question, has many unsound methods, and at times comes across as a run of the mill braggart; but it's clear that this person is not crazy and or irrational.

I don't. If my "solution" is right, then I think I know who they are.

There is no “lead” searcher. There are only searchers. Until the treasure is found, no one can know for sure how close they are to the correct solution.
