Just out of concern for those who are hammering this issue well beyond recognition. I tried to address ThatGuy because his post count in this thread was so high.

Does it bother you that I have posted?

LOL...Nope doesn't bother me at all. In fact, the more posts/views on this thread the better. It will serve as a continued reminder to Elvis that he screwed up.

ThatGuy has had some of the most logical posts on this thread. I hope he continues to post. I don't think there is a post count that could be "too high".

I am glad that you have such an altruistic nature, but really I think we will be okay.

I don't mean this as an attack, but how would you or anyone know whether anything has gone beyond recognition really?
unless Elvis has indeed contacted you about what has happened you don't know anything either

since Elvis doesn't give any answers to any questions that don't involve his social life (strange that he doesn't mind sharing that since his concerns re. privacy and all) pretty much anything anyone can up with on this issue is possible really

your imagination can run as far with this as you want to
the only limit would be presented by the trust you have in someone who doesn't answer any questions that involve misleading a couple thousand U2 fans into believing that one of their heroes is within their reach (as they say)

On an interesting aside, I found this thread today while rooting through some of my old posts:

Thanks for the concern, nbc.

And LuminousTimes, thanks for the kind words.

you have had many valid points and have many valid concerns.

I am with you on them. I've been here since before the forum went to what it is now. I remember the way it was before. I've made a few friends here and there and I've left for a bit and then come back. Even though the integrity, honesty, and principle of this whole situation has been shot through the roof, I still come here because of the people I have met.

The silence in here is deafening.

I can't imagine that staying bunched up over an internet issue is very healthy. This is not your web site. I can't imagine why you think you deserve to be "privy" to anything Elvis does.

This "Edge" issue is insignificant in the grand scheme of things. If you want to continue and grate you teeth over it fine - my simple suggestion was to move on to healthier things.

Lies, stealing, deception and passing the buck is somethiing we should learn to shrug off?

Forgive me for getting so personal here, but you call yourself a Christian??

Right now, I am completely sick at the mention of the term 'move on.' It pisses me off, both in this thread, and in much more serious and tragic circumstances in life(which I have just been going through) NO ONE can tell anyone else when to 'move on' and the suggestion that you should be doing so or something is wrong with you is unfair. Everyone feels things and deals with things differently, and that should be respected. If one person wants to 'move on' well go on, but if others don't feel that way, leave them alone.

Elvis I pm'd you something which you should find rather useful.

Looks like it was an entirely independant 3rd party behind all this. An account from long ago which never caused trouble until recently. Perhaps the story of an offspring of someone using this is true. Perhaps Elvis had no idea and was as fooled as some others. Who knows. I dont, and dont care either. I'm going to go away now and deal with my resentment at how you've treated some of us Elvis. Some of us who have been here for over 4 years, some of us who have given so many thousands of hours to helping you build this into what it is today. Ruefully, as this place is filled with many other secrets that I cannot be bothered raising up now.

Overall, your haste in making this something it never was, has been your undoing. Whether you believed in it or not is not the point. You ignored fair warning that you were making a mistake. You trampled on those who's helped you for so long. Now you act hard done by, and you were. You rushed to embrace this bullshit and told anyone who stood in your way to politely "fuck off".

Whatever. I pm'd you the answers you need. Stop barking up- the wrong tree with your conspiracy. It wont wash either. The truth is far more simple. Let everyone know. Learn from this and stop treating people like shit out of sheer pig-headedness.

perhaps it is.

during all of the speculation and theories surrounding the smith family, and the mysterious posts on the other site, i thought to myself, oh for fuck's sake, why doesn't someone just call information and talk to this family? that would clear things up nice and quick. so i did. i spoke with ms smith for quite a few minutes, actually. and while she didn't offer me much info, she never once asked me what the hell i was talking about. she only asked the simple question, "why would you be interested in this?" now, make of that what you will, but i certainly had the impression that this hoax wasn't exactly news to her.

when i contacted elvis about it, i had the distinct feeling that i was being dismissed. and that was the exact moment that i stopped caring about all of this. it was also the exact moment that i realized that this place will never, ever be the same again. i don't think for one minute that this site will die, not by a long shot. hell, there seem to be more members on during the day now than ever. but they are new, and it will take them a long time to learn. it's kind of like being forced into selling the beautiful home in which you watched your family grow to a bunch of young fraternity fucks who plop a battered sofa onto your rose garden before you have even have a chance to pull the truck away.

and that just sucks.

The PM you sent me, you told me about the number, you did NOT say you had called them.

as PMs are private, and posting them is against the rules... I'll only post part of my reply to you which I sent you:

Don and Jill Smith arent the only names that have been used.. and arent the only real names from Peoria that have been used.

Calling and bothering people that may be completely unrelated, just isnt something I care to do.
