The entire argument was essentially, "Well, if they could have sold more expensive tickets THEN WHY DIDN'T THEY??"

Easy choice for me in the end, Bono's lies win the day. The endless cycle of logic vs. illogic in the GROSS thread gives me more rage than lolz.

I would hate to be Moggio's English teacher, or anyone who had to read an essay s/he wrote. And I would love to see what sort of marks s/he got for critical analysis.

I also sort of want to give Maoilbheannacht a medal.

The Infuriating But Slightly Less Infuriating Than Somebody Else Medal?

I thought I was in the running for that particular honour.

Ian McCulloch the U2 fan:
"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."
"And as for Bono, he needs a colostomy bag for his mouth."

At first it was the Infinite And Then Sarcastic Patience Medal, but they got annoying too later on. Consider the nomination retracted, which I guess means you're still in the running for the other one.

And I finally finished reading most of Bono's Lies... definitely more lolz there.

It's safe to assume most people will have read through them sufficiently by then, so 48 hours might not be necessary.
Thanks!

I wasn't really being facetious btw, just slightly sheepish about not having much time to read old threads on the PC. Most of my blue cracking is done on my phone these days, and it's too annoying to read/post a lot with the app. Especially since the old threads show up in website mode.

While Moggio was a huge clusterfuck and that thread a pain to read, Bono lies is still very often used these days. And it still wins.

Oh and I do support the 48 hour rule, as we're getting to quite big threads now. And it's worth reading some of them in full, and that may require a night or so.
