but why WOULDN'T you?

you told us that you were doing everything you could to clear up this matter.

if she spoke to me, she would certainly speak to the owner of the site. and then there you would have it. you would clear up all the rumors that it was you or your staff who tried to pull this off. your credibility would have been restored, and things could have gone back to normal.

i was actually very surprised that you didn't want to speak to her.

I had actually emailed, and PMd, whomever it was, and asked them politely if I could call them, or they would call me --- as did Kate. We never got any response, but the emails and PMs were read.

well, that's understandable.

if it was the smith daughter that you PM'd, do you really think she's going to say, yeah sure, go ahead and call my house?

'twas the mother you needed to contact, not the daughter.

wow, I hope the proof you thought you once had that this indeed was The Edge wasn't based on the same kind of decisive measures

bg might actually be a great third party to get to the bottom what has happened (which I'm sure you want as much as we do)
it will at least speed up the process with about a year

a. U2 member(s) - (which one(s)?)

b. Paul McGuinness

and that just sucks.
I used to come to this site daily for U2 news and read the articles religiously...now I don't even look at the news on Interference...I simply don't trust it...

Wow, an e-mail and a PM. Glad to see "getting to the bottom of the matter" wasn't just tough talk. Way to follow through.

At least it gives us some insight about the authentication process for "The Edge."

Quote:
Elvis: So can I call you, or will you call me, so I know that you're really "The Edge?"

"The Edge" : No.

Elvis: Okay then! Welcome aboard, Edge! You're obviously "officially the real thing."

ThatGuy, you're taking it out of context. The PM and Email was once we had more evidence/suspicion of who it may have been.

Like I said, we've had IPs and various names, postings on other sites, various emails, etc. The collection of that stuff, once we realized we'd been hoaxed we tried contacting (as I said) this person via email and PM to talk on the phone about it. We did not have their phone #, and personally.. I'm not one to just look up telephone #s and call people out of the blue like bonosgirl apparently is.

That said, I spent a good deal of time chatting with Angela this morning, and she recently found evidence that this person posted on u2 sites as far back as 2002 with the same email address. Again, this is something she only recently found - had we found this earlier (much), I'm sure none of this would have escalated to this point.

We were hoaxed, we look like fools for it, it won't happen again, tempers flared along the way, slanderous and false things have been said about myself as well as others, there was no conspiracy on our part, no ploy to mislead people, and it's time to move on with more positive things. Personally, I dont have the energy to deal with this BS anymore. It's run me dry, I'm done with it. Of course, most of this we said in our opening message.
