What's the point of using a pick and trying to sound like finger style?

:You can use a pick and not sound like you are using one, if you have the technique down well enough. It's a matter of where you are striking the string wih the pick (move away from the bridge towards the neck to start losing the "click" sound).

This is fairly pointless IMO. I rarely use a pick but if I did it would be because it is easier to palm mute with a pick than finger style. Picking near the neck gets rid of the click but makes it increasingly arkward to palm mute.
