Panic in U2 online fan community

Panic in U2 online fan community

It has been revealed that, following Bono's recent remarks praising the Popmart tour, moderators of online U2 fan communities such as interference.com were flooded with thousands of requests to delete or edit historical posts. Bono has also reportedly ordered a crack SWAT team from Principle Management to seek out and terminate any online posts criticising the tour and the album that spawned it. Those with over 100 posts slagging off the Pop era are said to be particularly concerned.

Several posters unconvincingly claimed they were 'only joking' when they previously contributed posts criticising the Pop era.

Larry Mullen is reported to be 'not amused' at Bono's unprecedented volte-face, but is also said to be reluctantly 'considering his position in the light of the change in the Leader's policy'.

Black hummers were seen leaving the band's Clarence Hotel, Dublin compound. Also Neil McCormack was seen being thrown (again) from the hotel roof. No further comment was forthcoming.

Larry, shirtless and belligerent, was understood to have attacked several reporters and onlookers for no reason outside the hotel compound. According to Principle insiders, Larry hasn't been the same since he had to sell the empty village he previously resided in, along with his Harley collection.
