Because Zodiac's ciphers often look tantalizingly solvable,many get led astray,and believe that someone else must have the solution,paving the way for ''short cuts'',in their investigation.
With specialist subjects,it is almost always the case that the designated teacher,will make purchases,on behalf of the school.
I have a copy of the Brenda Haugen book.For beginners,it is excellent,and would recommend it,for the purpose of a general idea of what ''all the fuss was about'' [!].Once senses that Ms.Haugen,saw a ''need'' and a ''niche'',and provided an unpretentious introduction to the case.
But,many others just hitch a lift on the bandwagon,with the sole intention of making a buck,of ''easy'' money.
I don't really believe,for example,that Mr.Thomas Horan is a true ''nihilist'' on the existence of Zodiac.Here is a case [....and not a basket case [!]...]of a Zodiac enthusiast,bereft of ideas,and frustrated at not being able to come to terms with the existence of a truly enigmatic psychopath.
So he hits on the idea of becoming a particularly controversial ''conspiracy theorist''.He writes two books;makes a few waves,and finds his niche within the Zodiac ''arena''.But as time goes on,and Law Enforcement appear still prepared to hunt down this real individual,called Zodiac,Mr.Horan's theories begin to look a bit ''tired'' and ''old hat''.In addition,Mr.Horan finds that he is dependent on those,who largely ''believe'',for his income,and a purpose in life.
Conspiracy Theorists who theorize,just for the sake of staking their claim,on an ''angle'' to a particular case,are INTELLECTUALLY LAZY !
I don't think many will buy his book after viewing tell YouTube video he has. Total crap , over 1/2 of symbols not used trying to deconstruct this cipher blindly is like trying to catch a big fish by casting a bare hook into the water and reeling it in.
I am always in favor of encouraging others to try to reveal anything of the legacy of Zodiac's secrets.
Perhaps I should be humble enough,to hold back from discussing my journey,on how I ''stumbled upon'' Zodiac's ''340'' solution.
It certainly didn't happen ''overnight'',and strangely,must thank Zodiac,for his lucidity at the time of constructing his cipher.I believe that it mean't pride to him,after the ''humiliation'' of the ''408''.
Rubislaw 32's solution is now in the hands of the FBI.They are presumed to be experts in this field.
Zodiac's ''340'' cipher represents a direct ''vehicle'' for Extortion.And an indirect one for Murder.
Hopefully,the FBI will share their findings with the general public,soon [?].
Rubislaw32: Thanks for the Blackfoot Alphabet tip , Guest 123 .This could be of interest , with the Z148 cipher text . Given a link to the Karl Werner murders , Z148 is likely to be Zodiac authentic . Nice spot .

Guest123: Most of the people murdered have double letters in their name. Is it a coincidence? Is it deliberate?

Guest123: Look at the Blackfoot alphabet. Some of the letters look like the symbol in one or more of the cyphers.

Handyman: ricardo; if the watch is as a compass and the math addad , 36/42 or between its centre 40/41 would or could this also be used at the geographical end of the puzzle , I heard the trick is to find his north ? seeing as the numbers are a key. dvk

RandolphCarter: Were there any significant astronomical events of 2019 Zodiac would have observed? What were his thoughts on the Ultima Thule Flyby? Randolph Carter smiled to himself in the Strange High House In The Mist that night and thought of sunken Uralia.

RandolphCarter: The irony of reward money is there must be a world left to spend it in. How deep does Zodiac go and will there still be a bank to go to? The clear headed researcher must remind himself of this.
