agreed. for someone who thinks it's only a fucking MESSAGE BOARD! It's NOT a big deal, you're the one getting your panties in a twist.

I just love it when people say that but continue to spend tons of time around here.

Do not act like it's such a casual thing and you are too damn good for this place because you certainly seem to spend an awful lot of time on this message board.

I met two of the closest friends I've ever had in my 30 years on this earth at Interference. I'm sure there are several people who can say the same thing. You have no idea the bonds that have been formed because of this place. It runs so much deeper than "just a message board" or even U2. If you think it's ok for us to be screwed again by this place then that's your problem. But do not act like this place doesn't mean shit to you and then come back over and over again.

You're obviously of the mind that "it's only a message" board, and if this is the case then why are you getting so worked up about this? You're coming down on everyone else for it, yet it's all right for you to be?

Okay!

I think on the one hand it's nice that all of the senior staff is sticking up for each other.

I do wonder, on the other hand, why some others (Angie and Salome, most notably) seem not to have been extended the same courtesy. That's all that really gets to me about this thing. I don't care if Edge is real or not, wtf do I care what chocolate bar he eats? Seriously. I wish I had that kind of time on my hands.

Just wanna say 4 words words about all this:

"A bloody fine mess!"


Heres my 2 cents what I think:

When "The Edge" first allegedly appeared here, I was initially surprised about his appearance in the forum and posting quite a few comments along the way. But somehow I wasnt 100% convinced that it was him cos first of all, he had posted quite a few random comments like "Love Dime bars" and his attack on Jick simply tells me that this is not the normal Edge that we all know and read about. So why do it? I think it was someone else taking the mickey out of us rather than the real thing...If so, its downright disgusting that we, as Interferencers, are being used in this way!

And, another thing, this is aimed at Elvis, Im sorry I had to ask you this.....you must have been worn out by now from all this shit but I gotta ask you this... When you told us that all Band Members by their names are allocated places on the forum ie Bono, Larry, The Edge and Adam which led me to think: did you send out to the band via PM all the details of how to log on and so on using the unique passwords that none of your staffers know except perhaps yourself?

I would have thought that is the pretty sensible way to go cos if someone "posed" as The Edge and not using the unique password allocated to the real thing, then you would dismiss that "poser" out of the forum.....its called stealing identity that is.....a very serious (and illegal) thing to do in a place like here

So tell me how it got that far with Edge's cellphone number and all that palaver, you tried to convince us that it was HIM? Surely you would have kept your mouth shut and wait for the real thing to pop up and not the other way round.... After all, this is just a message board which makes it so much harder to distinguish between the real people of U2 and the fakes..... and I have every reason to believe the real U2 have posted on Zootopia under U2.com precisely cos its official site, not unofficial.....

Anyway my last word.....Just be so damn careful next time Elvis and dont do it again ever! Your reputation may be damaged by all this imo but if it wasnt for someone else, you, obviously, would have been in real serious trouble! (BTW Glad you enjoyed REM the other night!)

cheers

dougal

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!
I speak from possible bias, but ego is not even close to a word I'd use for Johan. Blunt yes, power tripper never.

Tis indeed only a message board. Not the kind of place you'd expect such behaviours.

I also dont agree that people can treat others however they please. Doesn't matter what environment it's in. Elvis is no different. None of us are.

If this was a business, we would get an "official" response from Elvis that the matter had been dealt with, and that is all we would get. Because this is not just a business, but a community, we all get to express how we feel - and get more information than we would otherwise get.

If this stuff up is enough to make you leave the forum then goodbye - sorry to see you go - but please lets all get some perspetive here - we were all taken for a ride and are pissed about it, including, as is clear from this thread - Elvis and the Interference staff. Lets just all let it go...

Oh and by the way Indra...I think maybe Salome wants to be here because there are people here he cares about a lot. I know when I was banned it broke my heart because I lost touch with so many of my online friends. I also think he sticks around to tell the truth about the whole situation which I am VERY happy he and Angie are doing!

This is the hard part to swallow. I mean come on, if people smelled a rat weeks ago, and let it be known. Then how could the staff been taken for a ride? I think they were driving the damn car.

Indra, its time for you to take YOUR broom out of everyone else's arse, love, its quite painful.

I love when newbies come along, sprout shit about nothing they know about, like they have a clue and think they are high and mighty.

Keep up the good work though, you're gonna win Interference 2004's funniest poster of the year award.

Have any of you posting here ever made a mistake in your life? Perhaps one that definetly was from bad judgement or a poor choice? Did you want to have your nose continuiously rubbed in it and be constantly reminded of it day in and day out? I think we have all been there, and I think we all know that feeling. This is a chance to excercise some mercy and grace....

We can argue all day and night about hurt feelings and betrayed trust--where is that going to get you...do we really need 30 more pages of this? We need to strive towards a sense of forgiveness and reconciliation if we are ever going to have a chance of community. This world has enough ugliness and bitter hearts, let's please let Interference be a safe haven for a little bit of happiness...please I'm really asking each and everyone of you personally to take a step back here for a moment.

I am not a perfect person, not by a long shot but then again, neither are any of you...I wouldn't have been the person I am today though unless I was afforded the chance to be able to make mistakes because it was only through mistakes that I was able to learn how to make things right. I couldn't have done it though unless I knew it was ok to fail, that I would still be allowed to get up and not have my errors held over me forever...

Can we please find some way that we can move on from this together as a community in the spirit of love rather than as a group of individuals throwing rocks at each other from behind boundary lines?

This place is so unimportant I will get worked up into a frenzy telling people about it.

Sheesh Indra - give it a rest already.

In the meantime, how's that document coming Elvis?
