if you're looking at the psychological aspect of this... if the guy wasn't Edge, why would he go onto another forum and post something SO random like this? if it was an imposter he would have to be masterful to keep the right balance of posting on non-u2 related topics and still sound like the Edge... i think if it was an imposter he'd probably go on a power trip and start making outrageous claims, or he would be WAY too conservative, and wouldn't be going on those sections of the forums, and he wouldn't commit himself to anything (like the tentative setlist and those lyrics to a song that they were planning on playing)

Well, maybe it is to you, and if so, that is pitiful. Or great. I guess it could be great if this is what you have to complain about.
Shame on you! It would be a big deal to you if you had worked as a MOD, a DAMN GOOD ONE, fair to all parties in FYM and you had lost your position and been banned.

Salome and I rarely seemed to agree on anything politically, but Salome was a TERRIFIC MOD!

Shame on you for treating someone who has put many hours into making this place a better place for everyone, so disrespectfully.

Maybe you got me wrong there. I was just adding more info for martha. I wasen't saying anything more than that. I'm still not sure if that was or wasen't Edge. I still think there's a possibility that it could have been him. I'm still confused.

I think it's absolutely hilarious that people think there can actually be a chance that this really WAS Edge.

For god's sakes, take a look and use your brains people!

It's NOT the Edge!!

Stop being naive.

Ok after going through all 25 pages that I missed...

Yeah the interview was an obvious give away that it wasn't the real thing...ie we who really DO have REAL connections would know that.

Having Edge's REAL cellphone number???? Please c'mon like any random person would have that in the first place...even for an interview...you would obviously be the one contacted...not vice versa.

You should have NEVER started this in the first place...you wouldn't be in this situation and I hope you learn from this NEVER to deceive the members here. You're lucky that you still have Interference...for all we know PM are in the process of checking everything that happened here to investigate what to do about this.

Most fans heard the ABOY snippet from outside Hanover a looooonnnnnng time ago. Just one listen to the snippet and you knew it had a punk rock feel. Oh and Bono's been sportin' that hat or a version of it a very long time as well.

One hour and eight minutes has passed since I started reading this thread. I read almost every word. I clicked on every link. I am now brought up to date. Now I'm going to make a cup of tea and put it all behind me for the night.

Based on the things that have happened in the past on this site (just read this thread... there have been several instances of not being credible and duping the people here), as well as the things Joel has a reputation for outside of Interference, I don't believe for a second that it was Edge at all.

I think this was orchestrated from the start. I don't believe that the people who run this site were as duped as the rest of us.

Sure, this will peter itself out and life will go on here... but there are several people who have been here for quite some time who will not forget about it so easily.

As for the comments about it being a "FUCKING MESSAGE BOARD" and "beating a dead horse" well, just like others have said: nobody's making you read this stuff. If you don't like the discussion here, there are plenty other threads to choose from. This thread was set up for the sole purpose of trying to get some answers (haven't yet, really. but that's no surprise, is it?). Sure, there are lots of important things in life. But for me, credibility, integrity, and honesty are just as important. When those things are so glaringly absent and become a problem, we as members, have a right to want to know what the flying fuck is going on.

If you don't like the dead horses lying around here stinking up the place, then go plant daisies in another thread somewhere else.

the snippet sounded like a EBTTRT more than anything, and while ABOY does have influences from the EBTTRT outtakes, it sounds a lot more punk-rocky, Desire/Last Night On Earth type of song now, at least with the live version

Shame on you for treating someone who has put many hours into making this place a better place for everyone, so disrespectfully.
And you would do well to get the stick out of your ass. Your opinion is not the only one that is acceptable...it certainly isn't acceptable to me. Obviously you have no idea what kind of deal it would be to me. It's only a messageboard.

To be perfectly honest I had no problems with Angela Harlem as a mod, but I found Salome to be a bit of a power tripper. You can have your opinion, but I can also have MY GODAMNED OPINION TOO! EVEN if you don't like it, dearie.

I don't give a rats ass who moderates and who doesn't here, but I can't see how Salome would even want to be here if he's been treated so shamefully. So that leaves me to conclude his goal is to harrass. The fact is, this is the board of the owner, no one else, and he and only he chooses personel. And he can ditch them for any reason (and it does seem he often has, but that is his right). You don't have to like it, but that is life in the big city.

Again, it's only a messageboard. Big damned deal!
