He just doesn't use smilies, that's all.

No more attacks on Salome, please.

I am greatly disappointed and saddened by the total lack of journalistic integrity displayed by Interference concerning the front page interview, as well as the numerous phony posts in the forums.

Fortunately, Interference, and any other U2 fan site for that matter, is made great by the warm and interesting personalities that grace its forums - not the fake news, fake interviews, or fake postings of band members.

I believe that Elvis is truly sorry for not catching this lie, but that does not make it any less of a discredit to the reputation of the web site and its staff.

I can honestly say that I will never trust this site the same way again for news or information about the band. The fact that many staff members were adamant and willing to stake their reputation on this issue is enough for me to make that assertion.

For a U2 fan site trying to be the best out there, this is as bad as it gets. I will continue to post on this site, but I will never look at it the same way again (and I remember the old skool interference.com, when you heard that distorted voice say "interference.... .com" when you loaded it up)

The tone? I guess I didn't make myself clear enough...so just because this is a silly message board financial fraud and misrepresentation are OK?

My feeling is that PM does not agree with you there. If they feel that the subscrptions/fundraiser and the hoax were a bit too coincidental, misrepresentation of the name U2 and The Edge is serious business for them.

That's the biggest reason we are not getting any answers. Plain and simple.

The fact that we are on page 35 in a forum that is mostly never visited- means alot. People are pissed about this. I'd like to see this thread continue forever.

So we never forget what happened to us on 10/11.

Oh come on. Now you're spreading rumors. Let's ask a familiar question: Have you checked on this for accuracy?

If you haven't, then you should stop talking about it.

perhaps elvis should show the people who spend their hard earned money on his site where their money goes then.

Yes please.

Joel, you never have time to answer legitimate questions, yet you have "just enough time" to squash all these rumors about you.

Well?

Can you find the time in your busy schedule to take a few minutes and answer a few very serious, very pressing questions?

Remember, integrity, principle, and honesty are pretty damn important. Something I think you are lacking by your silence.

Everyone go and check out the front page of

www.murmurs.com

REM site similar to Interference. See the Stipe interview? That's how these things should be handled here.

k, I take back what I said about Indra...but please Indra, respect the fact that others might have a different point of view than you and they have a right to say what they want to say.

So can we expect this sometime soon?

After all, you did say this:

Time we've seen plenty of. Openness, not so much.

How am I spreading rumours? What I've said isn't news on here, just more specific.

In the absence of answers to some of the questions being asked, I am speculating and providing my opinion as to the reason since Joel's blatant side-stepping of the issues must be for a reason other than utter contempt, disregard and disrespect for the people who want some simple answers.

I'd hope so anyway. Probably not.

yes, I can understand why this wouldn't have the same priority as posting within 2 minutes of Don Smith's daughter for a couple of weeks
in real life I would probably speculate that the lack of answers have to do with being totally unwilling to unveil what you're hiding because it will only hurt your credibility even further

Salome is saying that Joel could somehow respond immediately when people were questioning the "edge's" posts indicating that they were authentic, but somehow he is now too busy to answer any questions or give any facts regarding the bogus interviews and the bogus edge.

(sorry about the major run-on sentence)
