Pierre started out well enough with the board, stating he was doing "personal" research, needed one piece of final information to complete his research, and promising to let us know his suspect's name within one year. Posters were actually supportive of Pierre in the beginning, offering their help if he (or she, Pierre was a person of mystery) would only share what was being investigated.
But Pierre then started getting cagey with us, saying he wasn't sure he wanted to prove the identity of JtR, talking about having a burden, getting all high and mighty about being a real scientist and scholar, while the rest of us, well, werent, and composing truly bizarre scenarios about art and literature clues and random newspaper clippings.
Time-wasting did seem to be Pierre's speciality. I still think we were the subjects in his psychological experiment.

I haven't seen a post from Pierre for a while and he is inactive. Does anyone know what has happened to Pierre? And is Pierre ever going to reveal his suspect? After the amount of posts Pierre has made surely other posters deserve to know who his suspect is?
probably lurking, lurking.... reading this thread now.
don't ya wish you revealed your suspect now Pierre?
