just my opinion but you are consistent at posting things in which your point is entirely unclear or you seem to be making no point at all

all you're saying here is the treasure hasn't been found yet

unless your rhetorical question was meant to say the clues won't lead us to the treasure?

is that what you meant?

i think a reasonable person and serious treasure hunter would accept f's word on this one that the clues will lead us there but just the book without the poem won't

i understand you have been making an argument that the hints are helpful and thats fine. people are going to disagree on what "helpful" means exactly and how "helpful" they would be

but your post is a strange thing to say. what could possibly be your point in asking such a rhetorical question?

It wasn’t a rhetorical question so don’t frame it as such. And that’s not the only thing I was saying. It is a serious question. It comes from this simple statement by f: the hints help with the clues. Naturally, a searcher would look to find and figure out the hints if “they need help with the clues”. Since that (looking for hints in ttotc) has been done prbly hundreds of thousands of times and will continue to go on the the future I’m on solid ground the clues haven’t helped a vast percentage of the searchers or haven’t been enough help. Otherwise, I can’t point to the obvious evidence that searchers have looked for the hints in the book a boatload of times. Go take my poll and answer honestly.

So, it gets a little tiring to hear you keep saying some of my simple statements aren’t making a point because you can’t fathom my point.

I can throw in a statement by f that uses the word “serious”. My best advice for “serious” searchers is to...and the rest is the usual procedure of read the book and the poem, read the poem 9 times, then read the book slowly looking for something that trips up in your mind. These are the hints that will help with the clues. I think the statement I brought up with the use of “serious” is more apt than yours.

And you fell into the same trap that Seannm always falls in when discussing my thoughts about the clues and hints. If I ask about have the clues helped anyone much, I wouldn’t just assume I’m talking about the hints in the book. I’ve made it clear on this thread that I talk about hints in the book and the poem. So whatever you’re trying to imply with not being able to find the tc with just the book and not the poem doesn’t apply to me.


Howdy, Mister.

yeah, thing is it doesn't seem to support your narrative whether its rhetorical or not

thats why im asking what your point could possibly be asking the question

it sure sounded to me like you were asking it as if the answer were obvious. in which you would be trying to make a a rhetorical point

but ok, i'll stand corrected and accept your word that it wasn't

which would then mean that you were asking as if the answer could have possibly been "yes, the clues have helped people a lot!"

well, ok then, i totally agree



also, i apologize for saying things in way that may seem more of a personal attack than a logical rebuttal

its something i have a problem with and have been tryingto work on

Much the same from you...it doesn’t reflect what I’m saying. I don’t need to think as much as you to make a simple point which you like to try and twist. Give it up.

How should we interpret this?

This blog is mostly about what words mean, right?
