Instead of discussing "Pierre" in public, let's pm each other, because we all know how much he likes to stalk every post! He simply enjoys it! Just pm each other if ya'll wanna say something! We've clearly given him too much attention, he'll keep on making pointless threads, Pierre's an attention seeker!

Well you can live in hope.

I must have found him."

Is that a reasonable assessment? Or am I missing something?
Seems to me what he's doing is making rubbish up then twisting things to fit saying we can't see it because it's metaphorical and we all ain't academic giants like he are.

Pierre, how about your statistical analysis to find the probability of the killer's metaphorical name being in your data source? Was it higher than 0.1% after all?
Maybe I missed a thread or two in between, but I feel there are many loose ends to tie up first before starting new Chapman threads.

Hi,

Thanks a lot for reminding me. I will update you as soon as I have made it.

Regards, Pierre
