Am I in U2 heaven or U2 hell?

I've only been on the forum a few days and to tell you the truth I don't know which it is. I mean on one end I've already been insulted, attacked and seen the dark underbelly of the forum. Too dramatic? Maybe not for this forum. Though I have to say that my first post looking back probably deserved *some* of the replies it did.
But on the other end, I find most people here to be very nice. When the posts are good they're great. U2 fans really might be the smartest (on the average) fans in rock n' roll.

I'm Screwtape2 but my real name is Justin. I live in Warren Buffet Land/ Omaha, Nebraska. I've said this before but I think Warren Buffet's donation to the Bill & Melinda Gates fund puts Bono in his debt. Bono can/should/must repay Warren Buffet by playing Omaha on every tour.

I've always had this fantasy where I have a group a kids to take a spoon from thier house and "borrow" spoons from thier friends' houses. Then I send the spoons to Adam with a letter telling him how much I loved his bass work in Lemon. In turn, he sends me his surgeon's mask from Popmart. That's not weird is it.

I like alot of artists outside of U2:
Coldplay-some of you who are reading this are hissing at that.
Bush
Smashing Pumpkins
Pearl Jam
The Cure-from reading forums it seems like a sin to like them
Depeche Mode
Dido
Kate Bush
Peter Gabriel
The Police-my favorite band
Sting
Prince
Todd Rundgren
and a hundred others

I don't know what else to say. Please don't destroy the image of nice, intellectual U2 fans. Hope to see you in the forum.

oooh! Now I'm dying to go read all the threads you've posted in so far.

Welcome though (I think this may be the first time I have posted in this section, but your thread title was too good to pass up. )

and as for the question posed by that title -- I think it might be a bit of both.

I had the same kinda experience when i first joined.......bizarre....never really admitted this before.....overall i was recieved nicely but very quickly on the scene i got picked on cause i said "eclipse" instead of "elipse" for the stage setup for U2....then i got hassled for my poor spelling....what else....absolutely got flamed for posting a picture of a rugby player in a "march madness" thread, because i innocently thought it wa about anything on sport in March..turns out it was only exclusively for Basketball!!

Anyhoo....enough of my bitchin'.....WELCOME TO INTERFERENCE!

Happy posting.....i wont hassle you *unless your're an Italian soccer player....he,he,he!* and beware of the trolls and don't feed them unless........... you want some fun!

Welcome! I hope you stick around. It takes time to find your feet sometimes; learn which users tend to be a bit narky so are best left alone, learn which topics have already been discussed so many times it's flogging a horse to try and discuss them again etc.

Lol, hello fellow newbie.

Sorry if you got tripped up a little right out of the Interference starting gate.

I've had my own little mis-adventure so don't feel bad.

If we don't let it get to us too much you and I will make it through this ok.

I appreciate the sentiment, fear_nothing. Thank you for the nice comments everyone. If anything, I've mastered getting people to my threads for better or worse.
