If I have solved the poem, and I know the secret, and I know it is a secret to Mr. Fenn, and he has asked me to keep it secret, should I keep it a secret or betray his trust? Would you betray his trust? Has he ever once said that if you solve the poem to let everybody know that you have. I think he said he would know when it is found. He never said to tell anybody, and he never said that he would tell anybody what his secret is, or the secret place....its all in the poem. Yes, I have faith that he is telling the truth, and him asking you to go in peace may be his way of asking that you do go in peace. Will you be the one to betray his trust and expose the secret if he asks you to keep it secret? This poem may be about more than just a box full of goodies and our greed to own it. Greed is not trustworthy IMO.

It's not a secret. It's published, public information. If someone does not understand the poem, that doesn't mean the information is secret. Mr. Fenn said that it was out of his hands. He has not asked anyone to 'keep it a secret' because it is not a secret.

If Mr. Fenn asked me to keep it a secret, I would say "Mr Fenn, why are you asking me to keep secret something that you have already told the world about, publishing a poem that has everything anyone needs to know, as well as over time throwing out more hints, which are also public information?" Mr Fenn has made it clear that he does not want to give anyone an advantage over others, and at the same time I don't believe he would place demands, like 'keeping a secret' on one person and not others. Mr Fenn has also stated that he thinks the kind of person who finds the treasure would be someone who can't keep a secret.

If Mr. Fenn asked me to 'keep the secret' I would say 'Sorry, Mr. Fenn, but you already let the cat out of the bag.'
