    Picard: Real or Fake? You Decide!!!!

    There's been a lot of talk, speculation and rumors around here about who Picard really is. Is he really just a zany person who loves to ask off beat (not beat off) questions that some find amusing and others find infuriating? Or is he actually the shadowy creation of another twisted forum member, designed to trick us, pull at our heart strings, and wonder how another human being can possibly be so wacky.

    Take this poll and let's settle this question once and for all. Vote early and vote often. And good luck.

    I also vote NOT ME.

    I've always felt that Picard is Pinch Flatte's creation. Too many similarities.

    DJ denies having any sock puppets so clearly he's got some, but I doubt it's Picard.

    A couple of years ago I discovered that Picard was not listed in the member list and mentioned it in a post. That has since been corrected.

    Yes, Finch is good friends and lives next to FC. FC allows Finch to have this sock Picard and probably others to keep the entertainment going on the site.

    If you'd have been paying attention over the years you'd know that they don't live anywhere near each other, and even if you weren't paying attention it's pretty easy to figure out if you do some digging.

    And WTF is opening one's eyes going to do if there isn't anything to see?

    Oh wait a sec, I think I found your "proof" right here:

    I'm still waiting for proof, once you show me proof I'll shut up.

    And let me get this straight; you're upset a Scott for jokingly suggesting that you have socks?

    I'm certain that Finch is a real person (he sent me, via snail mail, a Lana 45 that he had acquired at some pawn shop or something) a couple years ago.

    I'm pretty certain Picard is someone's sock. I find it amusing that DJ thinks that he JUST KNOWS that it's Finch's. Not saying it's not possible, just kinda think it's funny how DJ is so sure based on speculation.

    Based on Chaz's discovery about the member list thing, I'm pretty sure he belongs to an admin (looking at you, GOB).

    This whole Picard/Finch conspiracy can be solved pretty quick.

    Tomorrow morning at 9:00am Central Standard Time, Picard and Finch, post a screenshot of the local newspaper from your hometown, paper has to be taken on the hood of your car with date clearly visible.

    So let me get this straight....you believe that you were the only one on MTBR who realized that Finch Platte was some kind of anagram for "Pinch Flat"?

    Well, it certainly was discussed in depth years ago in a thread where I called Finch out on it and many jumped in not knowing. Iím not saying ďI was the only one on MTBR that knew itĒ. But many didnít until I mentioned it. No big deal I frequently see things others donít. Speaking of which, smelling out socks has always been a skill set I seemed to have picked up where others havenít. I guess itís a sixth sense of sorts that few have.

    So, Picard's posts in other forums, like the Evil forum, are just Finch trying to throw us off?

    Catching on I see. Good stuff Mr. Korn. Canít pull the wool over your eyes.

    Isnít that what masters of socks do? I guess you forgot about the master of puppets who got busted back in 2012íish. He had like 8 socks he was controlling for several years. They finally caught on and canned him. Apparently they donít spend time hunting down socks these days or it may be a plant of sorts from the staff as already suggested.

    Okay, one more.

    They don't give a rat's ass about this site, and they definitely don't have the time to play silly sock games to "generate interest", or whatever you call it. FC sold the damn site, you think he cares if the OC has traffic or not, lol!

    Hi Finch, it's FC, posts are down in Off Camber, you think you can make some nonsense posts as Picard to generate some activity? Our ad sponsors aren't very happy right now.

    You just couldnít stay away, could you?

    Picard was created years before the site was sold.

    He has a join date of 2005. The site was sold 2 or 3 years ago.

    This, what you said here. Heís been here and heís still here after they sold the site. Now itís not to boost the site activity but more so because the master of him gets off on these stupid posts.

    Iím a relative newb to MTBR(compared to most yíall) and a complete newb to this whole Picard topic. I must admit I voted Picard just exists. I disagree with the conspiracy theory that Picard exists for anything other than entertainment value. As a forum surfer Iíll say while other sites may contain more valuable articles and news, the MTBR forum is the only one Iíve found where help and worthy discussion on any topic is always available. When a new thread flounders on PB, Iíll suggest to try an active thread here knowing the New Posts function will run it past everyone and the notification function will target those with past interest...it is the global leader. May the conspiracy live on...

    Let the excuses begin.....
    So, I'll post a pic at around 10 am Central. No way I'm going to drive my car into town just to take a pic of a newspaper, I gotta do it while I'm out doing stuff anyway.

    Maybe someone can start a Gofundme to fly Finch to Canada so the two can ride together. We'll include cyclelicious as a witness and to take pix as evidence!

    Sock Puppet Masters have multiple computers and multiple screens and multiple IP addresses. It's set up like a control room.

    It's my understanding that they have an arrangement similar to the one pictured. Perhaps DJ and Pinch Flatte can elaborate?

    At least I right sided my photo before posting it. On my lunch hour at work I might add.

    I walked out to my truck and immediately jumped on mtbr [itís my lunch hour recreation] scroll around and then came to this thread. Holy crap! Iím supposed to supply a DNA sample in the form of a newspaper photo. Threw my lunch to the side and drove off. Iím pondering who has newspapers in this technologically advanced world? *ding*ding* Wal Mart is close by. I zipped in on a 70į Saturday where everybody and their brother is out. Screw looking for a parking spot. I parked in the fire lane out front with my flashers on.

    As I digress, as Iím pulling into packed Wally World I see a lot attendant chasing baskets. I beeped my horn and got his attention [as others are waiting behind me] and asked him if they carried newspapers. Yes, as he explained where they were. As I said I didnít have time to look for a spot in this packed place. Parked in the fire lane out front and ran in. Rushed up to the registers, whereís your newspapers? Ran up and photographed one and ran out. Made it back to work in time but missed out on lunch.

    Finch!?! You owe me.

    It's not 2005, internet forums aren't that popular anymore, definitely not enough that anyone would go through the trouble of making multiple accounts on one these days, especially here.

    Thereís a reason Picard didnít post his newspaper pic. Itís obvious. Thatís plenty of info. My wife and I did a monster adventure ride today. There was pain, tears, water crossings, more pain, massive views, damn near 200í per mile average, not a soul in sight and we had a ball. Was hoping to get home and see both of you squirrels pics to disprove this conspiracy once and for all. Instead, it was just what most everyone figured. One person stepped up. Picard didnít. We all know Picard saw this request with plenty of time to get ready and submit his pic. Didnít happen. Wonít happen. We all know why now. It is what it is.

Iím supposed to supply a DNA sample in the form of a newspaper photo. Threw my lunch to the side and drove off. Iím pondering who has newspapers in this technologically advanced world? *ding*ding* Wal Mart is close by. I zipped in on a 70į Saturday where everybody and their brother is out. Screw looking for a parking spot. I parked in the fire lane out front with my flashers on.

    As I digress, as Iím pulling into packed Wally World I see a lot attendant chasing baskets. I beeped my horn and got his attention [as others are waiting behind me] and asked him if they carried newspapers. Yes, as he explained where they were. As I said I didnít have time to look for a spot in this packed place. Parked in the fire lane out front and ran in. Rushed up to the registers, whereís your newspapers? Ran up and photographed one and ran out. Made it back to work in time but missed out on lunch.

    Finch!?! You owe me.
    I loved this story btw DJ! Had me cracking up

    Why the broken record accusation posts? No one has enough info, it's all speculation, and no one has bothered to do a little research to find that I am actually not Picard.

    It is a mess indeed. And just for the record, I am not mad at anyone. If Picard and Finch are the same, Iím cool with it. If it gets dis-proven and Picard is just a bad English speaking homeless person with a Costco bike, Iím cool with that too. But I definitely believe Picard is not real. I wish he would have posted a pic today and set the record straight.

    Highly intelligent and dumping energy into maintaining multiple accounts on an internet forum doesnít add up.

    I believe picard is a real boy. He embodies the curious spirit so many of us have lost as we grew up. His thirst for mtb related knowledge is only outsized by the joy he brings everyone else. One of these days he will condense his knowledge bank and build up the perfect bike. A true 5 figure machine that will go down in history as THE mountain cycle of the century.

    So the question now is......if Picard were to build up a 5 Figure Bike, would it be a DownCountry, LowRider, or a BeachCruiser?

    And it would get him kicked off the site. The Mod's post implies that at least some of the socks here are being run on the inside.

    If you were to post his ip it would be 127.0.0.1

    Picards 5 figure bike would probably be 200mm travel frame, rigid fork, 29er rear wheel, 24 front wheel (super reverse big hit style), triple chainring up front, single cog in the back, v brakes, integrated bar/stem, slime tubes, axs dropper, and one flat one clip pedals.

    Pretty sure the moderators can see IP addresses when you post. So unless they're in on the ruse, then for Picard to be fake would take a heck-of-a-lot-of effort and a little conspirying.

    What more proof do we need?

    I think I finally got it figured out..... Picard is shared between two people here.
    Finch is posting as Picard with bad English, trying to throw us off with that Asian flare.
    Driver Bob is posting as Picard when the English seems spot on (about 25% of the time). The gigís up bitches

    Did you guys know that Finch Platte is a funny reference to Pinch Flat? Like on a bicycle, because this is a forum for bikes. Just want to make sure everyone knows this stunning revelation I have made. I am also the first person to ever point this out.

    sure this is old, but it seems to verify that Picard lives in Ontario, Canada relatively close to driver bob...

    I'll take that as a compliment. Although this thread is just about as messed up as any ever.

    First off, why the hell would anyone ever mistake Finch for Picard. They are about the farthest apart you could get. OK both are uh...colorful...but in completely different ways. Finch is adventurous in a Charlie Sheen kind of way...Picard...has he even dated yet? Maybe you think Finch created an alter ego in Picard, but why? What fun is it to create some timid, fragile Woody Allen character without the wit and brilliance? It's just boring. Of course, maybe Finch is crazy enough to do it, but I really doubt he would do something like that, it just takes up too much time and energy. There are a lot of fake ID's online but I can pretty much guarantee Picard is real. Just the fact that he comes somewhere like here for consolation is proof that he's real. Real people make mistakes. He's the exception that proves the rule.

    Now this is really weird because he's been banned for several years, but in 2017 he had about 317,000 posts. It shrunk down to 19,198. Server issues maybe?

    finch plattenbau romantik

    I can't post the link because it's explicit. Also, according to Finch himself, his name is a reference to a prostitute, which loosely fits the German lyrics of this song above.

Was hoping to get home and see both of you squirrels pics to disprove this conspiracy once and for all. Instead, it was just what most everyone figured. One person stepped up. Picard didnít. We all know Picard saw this request with plenty of time to get ready and submit his pic. Didnít happen. Wonít happen. We all know why now. It is what it is.

    Dude, just because Picard is not from a real country doesn't mean he himself is not real.
