I'm sorry, these annoying little twits disrupt the positive what of the message board? "Flow"? What's that mean?

Good times.

It's a good thing it takes a lot of money to see multiple U2 shows. Keeps the riff raff out.

But seriously, Carek--of course you're entitled to your opinion. It just strikes me as odd that a "real U2 fan" such as yourself could be so exclusive regarding what constitutes a "real fan" given how inclusive U2 are, when compassion and being in harmony with their principles are among your requirements for real fanship. So I thought you might want to reconsider the possibility that someone could be a "real" fan while living in a country where U2 doesn't tour, or even in the US without the means to attend a show, or who doesn't speak English and doesn't know the lyrics but who loves the music and the spirit of it nonetheless. Hell, I don't even know the lyrics to most of the songs on October and who even cares?

Really, given the fact that EPAA exists, NO ONE is a REAL U2 fan

But if you hate the song, clearly you are NOT a real fan. All real fans recognize it for its complete and utter brilliance.

I've never seen U2 live because I don't have the money. Therefore, JUST IN HER HUMBLE OPINION, I'm not a real U2 fan.

And I'm part of a little group disrupting the forum.

Also, because it was JUST IN HER HUMBLE OPINION, we probably should not respond to it and/or pick it apart. It's not like this is some kind of discussion board or something.

Either way, it sounds like I have to leave Interference now. I'm not a U2 fan.

This half-assed fan is trying to figure out what EPAA is, so we'll find a new forum out there, philly.

There's a place for us,
Somewhere a place for us.
Peace and quiet and open air
Wait for us
Somewhere.

There's a time for us,
Some day a time for us,
Time together with time spare,
Time to learn, time to care,
Some day!

Somewhere.
We'll find a new way of living,
We'll find a way of forgiving
Somewhere . . .

There's a place for us,
A time and place for us.
Hold my hand and we're halfway there.
Hold my hand and I'll take you there
Somehow,
Some day,
Somewhere!

Oh, I hope that's the Babs Streisand version.

All kidding aside, I love that song.

Whatever, interference, I like that song! Come and get me!

Anyway, Carek, I apologize if this has gone too far. But this whole "real fan" thing has always bugged me. That is the real little click.
