Good lord, that one is harder to fall for than the Lichtenstein whaling benefit show.

Also, just browsing through these threads, I have found arguably the best username ever: U2Granny.

OK, by my count, the following threads are must-haves in the final bracket (generally by receiving multiple mentions in this thread):

Business Trips ... Are They Legit When There's Closing Involved ??
U2 at Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein right now
http://www.u2interference.com/forums...ds-192666.html
Ok, Rush vs U2 LIVE
Bitch moan bitch moan
http://www.u2interference.com/forums...on-157929.html (personal request from Ashley, and frankly, it's a Temple Bar-era classic)
Sexual Messages in U2's Songs
IO: Best Thread Ever
I hope Bono is ok small plane crashed in Manhattan
Jeff Goldblum dead too??
Good Morning friends!
Oregon Trail: Interference Edition (no one linked to this yet, but come on)
Morrissey - a live nod to U2 at Glastonbury?
tuf bono respect

That's 14 right there. The challenge of making a bracket is filling it up to either 16 or 32 or 64 or some usable bracket-type number. I'm adding threads starting now, so if you're insistent on a thread getting in there, speak up. I know we're missing Pop Survivor Round 1 because I couldn't find the link, nor the OG Shuttlecock thread, which I'm not sure we decided on anyway.

If you want to push for 32 threads, I can be more liberal with what I add. If we're only doing 16, I have to start thinking about what I'm going to cut.

El Mel, how could you NOT include Shuttlecock, or the Beatles remasters? Those each have multiple installments that destroy almost everything else on Interference.

Even A_Wanderer fell for The Edge.

Someone who was around at the time, how did you all fall for it? What was the back story that made it seem true?

I guess it was the excitement of the new CD that added to the gullibility. And the fact U2 is very much aware of this forum. But yeah, I fell for it. Sigh!

ETA: I just checked out the first page of that thread. Oh God, were we a foolish bunch!

How do we know they're "very much aware"?

Also I'm trying to find where Ol' Whiskey started but having some trouble.

Well, we're a large forum that's been around for many years. And I think one of the mods once said that the band and those who work for them lurk from time to time.

Correct me if I'm wrong!

As far as I recall (and it might not be totally correct), there was at least some indication or implication from mods that it was legitimate. After the fact, I think Sicy or someone posted that they had done some diligence on it and felt it to be verifiable.

So, that was after the fact of course, which begs the question how did rational people actually believe it before all that came out..well..I know for me I was relatively confident that the mods would never knowingly allow an imposter to play that cruel of a game on the board, and the very fact that it was allowed to continue seemed to indicate to me that they must have done some sort of check and believed it to be true. I had alot of faith that the people who run the forum would be all over that kind of thing, being huge U2 fans themselves. Is/was there also a rule about not being allowed to call yourself "Bono", "The Edge", "Adam Clayton", or "Larry Mullen Jr"? I think there was/is. In other words, for a person to have even been allowed to set up the account and start posting as "The Edge"..it had to be real. That was just my belief on it, can't speak for others.
