Perhaps we could combine the vote for Fake Edge debacle in general? ie, both threads.

I skimmed that thread last night and was surprised by the level of outrage. I mean, I get it. I understand why there would rightly be suspicions and anger, but holy shit.

That must have all gone down just before I started reading/posting regularly, because it was October 2004 that I made a beeline to this site to share my zomgbono story.

Elvis' complete and total lack of accountability is what really sustains that thread.

Yeah, having just skimmed through that thread, I think the resentment is justified. I still don't understand how anyone believed it was Edge in the first place, but it's even harder to believe that the mods wouldn't have known it was an imposter.

I don't think that's really fair, Fake Edge Saga would roll everything.

It's like putting Godfather I and II together in a film survivor.

I Squirtigo'd the shit out of this tournament starting it so soon. Oh well, it'll turn out fine when it's all said and done.
All good, don't worry about it. This competition is good times. Besides, when people vote for Fake Edge, they don't just vote for a thread, they vote for the idea of Fake Edge.

I totally forgot about this.

Anyway, the whole Edge fiasco started here:

Edge's Vertigo guitar playing is Overrated...

It's hilarious when you look at it. "Edge" compares jick to a terrorist and all hell breaks loose. Fascinating how people start to get defensive to such an assholish post (by The Edge I mean).

Probably the mods (or sicy) saying no, this is the real thing and we have proof. We can't tell you what that proof is (which automatically made me more skeptical than anything, if I recall correctly), but we have reasoning to be absolutely certain this is the edge.

wow. Just wow. I really wish I had discovered this site five years before I did I'm amazed so few people twigged that "Edge" was a fraud after that post. Btw could someone plz post the interviews with "U2"? That should make fun reading

Except it wasn't the mods, it was just Elvis and Katey. Which is probably worse. Mods were in the dark (or actually knew what was up and were told to shut it, like Angela and Salome) as far as I can remember.

That was an entertaining re-read though. 8 years later (holy shit, it's been 8 years ), it's pretty funny to see the bald-faced evasion on Elvis's part, but, like iron yuppie said, it's also understandable why people got so pissed.

My favorite part is bg stepping in and calling the mom, and Joel "I'm trying to get to the bottom of this" Tanner acting like it's the craziest thing in the world to follow a lead in an investigation.
