I would have asked what you just DID, so I guess we disagree on that.

My favorite stereotype has to be the indietastic teen set, who loves every indie band featured on the Grey's Anatomy and/or Juno soundtracks.

I hate those guys.

I personally have found the "older" folks here to be the "real and true die hard U2 fans" who share the same qualities of a typical U2 fan which is supporting the causes the band or Bono promotes, those in tune with politics and current world events, those fans who want to change the world for the better. These fans know the words to ALL U2's songs but don't spend endless hours arguing about their meanings. These fans have friends all over the country and world who they met at U2 shows and events and they keep in touch. U2 fans are compassionate, caring, intelligent, well read, politically outspoken. U2 shows to them are like a church service. They will see more than one or two shows a tour. This is JMHO.
Are you sure you wouldn't like to rethink this? Because it is a very limited perspective.

I won't. As my post states, "JMHO", perhaps you didn't read or comprehend that portion of it? No I am not being condescending , disrespectful or facetious. We are all entitled to posting our own thoughts and opinions here. I commend all of you for having responded in picking my post apart. Congratulations. You should all be proud of yourselves and your little group. It's groups such as yours who can really disrupt the positive flow of a good message board.

What did you last SAY? Adding a little tag to the end of a post doesn't make it invulnerable to questioning it. If that's your opinion, great, but we can still question it. If this click really does ruin the flow of good message board, I suggest going over to EYKIW and sifting through the nuggets of intelligence there.

What little group do you mean? Last I checked, Joyfulgirl is a long-time, respected poster. What little group is she part of? Do you mean the "I have a fucking brain in my head group"? It does not take a click, or clique, to pick your shit apart.

Exactly. You can't dismiss EVERYONE that disagrees with you by just saying we're all a "little group"
