I know about the statement. The problem with it is, he didn't spell it out. There's no proof in that statement that he was saying, "straightforward" as opposed to, "straight forward." The only proof we have one way or the other is his typed statement quoted in the OP. We can't assume his exact use of the term in the video. There's no way to know unless someone asks him.

to me since I asked him that question I think he is saying that the poem is describing real physical locations not that the poem itself is straight forward. No tricks or codes and read the poem as real physical things.
All I'm saying is, we can't prove with certainty which way he was using the term during the Q&A at Moby Dickens. But, we can prove that he typed it as if he meant directly ahead in the Q&A at Mysterious Writings.

***Basically, the video is left open to interpretation.
You should write to Forrest and ask for a clarification if you a having issues with his exact wording/meaning. Straight forward or straightforward, the poem is still chaos until someone straightens it out.

I don't have any issue with what Fenn said. Was attempting to be helpful for some reason. Thinking some are having an issue accepting that he could, very well, be saying what I proposed. Could be both. But, if he's saying straight ahead most solves are broken.

Shadetree - clearly, you've put a lot of thought into this particular topic. Probably, more than most. Maybe I'd be wise to focus more on it myself. Seems like it might be a good way to find some peace in the chase.

Any differing opinions?

Or could it be that it's not so straight forward? Could it be that straight forward is a reference to the sight one might have when looking for clarity. Maybe a vision appears that may look straightfoward in appearance but it represents something contrary to what really is? Sorry to get so philosophical but it seems like a subject on which everyone should be straight.

Puzzling.

RE: Straight forward
Got quiet around here. Someone must have gone off on the search. Hope it ends well for them.

Anyway, I've been thinking some more on the search. There's a lot of talk of shadows around here so maybe some place with a little less light. Then, not far but too far to touch.

I figure that, given my favorite spot, if I make it to the woods, I'll have gone too far and jim a' won't be happy about that.

Dang, CrazyFamily. You had me concerned. Thought maybe you weren't so keen. Then I realized that I'm the one who's crazy. Maybe I went astray for a bit but have come to realize what I need to, do.

Of course, why should I heed your calls? You're crazy! May be time to finally start a BL.
