Hi K, I have that in the OP. He doesn't say straightforward. He says, "straight forward." There's a huge difference. I put the definitions of both in the OP to avoid confusion. I think some people just aren't getting it.


Sorry, I hadn't read up. I get it now. Interesting distinction.

??? Fenn said straight forward not straightforward. Maybe anyone that interprets it for anything other than what it specifically means needs to reevaluate the logic behind their personal train of thought. Straight forward means exactly that and not straightforward. To take what he says out of context by giving it a definition that doesn't fit is the equivalent to putting words in his mouth that he didn't say. He, as far as we can prove, never said straightforward but he has said, "straight forward." My solve follows a straight line, so we all don't agree.

I don't think that it's even possible to not have some turns within your journey ("My solve follows a straight line") as you progress from the start to finish.

Honestly I would probably except either spelling to mean either definition, and what about that darn spell check.... Wink

Straight forward could be a timeline. A progression in dates.

My current solve's straight forward, start to finish. There's two ways to interperet / follow the poem in the area I'm searching. One involves turns and will have someone thinking they're making all the right choices but they'd really be doing some things out of order and, should it be there, would end up with the treasure to their back, imo. The other way is straight forward but takes way more mental effort to comprehend. There's two of almost everything in the poem there. The wrong understanding will lead to wrong decisions causing at least one clue to be hit before it appears in the poem while on the way to another clue that precedes it to then be presented with the wrong interpretation of the clue that was hit too early on accident. The straight line offers the least resistance while adhereing to everything Fenn's said and conveys everything I believe the poem's saying.

***Entire solve could be wrong, will find out soon I guess.

Hi Count, the problem with that is straight forward doesn't mean straightforward. So, to say straight forward can be used to mean straightforward, as in uncomplicated and easy to understand, when it's not interchangable, is giving the phrase a definition that's not recognized. It would be like saying, "I'm sitting upfront." We can sit up front but we can't sit upfront. We can be upfront (straightforward) about something but we can't be up front about it just like we can be straightforward about something but we can't be straight forward about it.

Aint that a hoot. I provide links that contradict what you said and it irritates you, but you make claims without providing links to substantiate what you say and expect everyone to just take your word for it.

LMFAO.

You might want to recheck your links and read the ones I posted. Bye.
