Somehow, I got the impression from the responses of a few days ago that no more information would be forthcoming.

What's the point in giving any answers now, the thread has been removed from the forums. I could only find it ont he front page.

I hadn't noticed that the "Message to Our Readers" was removed from the Anncouncement part of every page. Wow. What a wimpy thing to do.

I saw how many people were clicking on it, and thought it'd be nice just to leave it up longer... It was up for several months, and again.. yes I ran it for FREE. I only took it down for the album banner, and if/when I get around to finishing the new site, it's going to have a permanent spot for charity type banners/ads.
Again, Elvis proves that the only time he will post is when the question posed has any easy answer. All of the tough questions remain unanswered and will remain so.

I will still continue to view this thread and post occasionally...I hope it never dies and Elvis is constantly reminded of his "mistakes".

I guess openness and honesty was just too much to ask for.

Not to sound too much like another poster here, but I'm sure U2 would really approve of the way this whole affair was handled.

Not that they ever actually visit here.

I thought it was weird that Edge would be doing an interview with interference.

If Edge wanted to do an interview with a website they would just use:

www.u2.com

And any other interview would be best to magazines to get other non fans on board.

Holy shit. Are all the angry people serious? The staff thought they posted a real interview, it turned out to be an Edge impostor, the staff figured it out and withdrew the interview, and you're all genuinely angry? Was that a CBS scandal comparison I saw? You all realize this is a fan site for a music band, right? That maybe, oh I don't know, it's No Big Deal and Move on With Your Lives?

A few other people have addressed this, and I'd just like to lend my Babyface-ish weight to it: do NOT let this issue die.

As has been said many times now, stuff like this ("Edge's" posts, the interview, etc.) is kind of getting to be an unfortunate normalcy here. And it all eventually gets swept under the rug, people forget/are uninformed, and then everyone gets fooled again.

If this is let go, Elvis will have once more been shown that outside of small amounts of unpleasantness, he can do/allow shit like this and get away with it. And then it's just a matter of time before it happens again.

I'm not saying that this specific thread should continue on into eternity. I'm not saying that this fiasco should be brought up in every forum every time you talk to Elvis. But no one should forget, and no one should let him forget either.

I haven't been to Interference in ages. No reason, really. Just been busy in other areas of the internet.

I just read this entire thread. In one sitting.
