Not that I want to get involved in all the drama that's been going on around here but may I offer a suggestion ...

"The Edge' posted a a self-picture from his photobucket account in PLEBA? Could he perhaps take a picture of himself in from of his computer browsing the blue crack?

Again just a suggestion ...

Jessica Ann makes a very good point. That would really put an end to all of this. I'm just tired of the drama around here lately.

Brook...you will not be censored, nor will your post be deleted. Just a heads-up. This forum is meant for bringing member's concerns to the attention of administration. Thanks for participating in the dialogue.

A heads-up to everyone else, too...until Elvis himself posts in this thread, which may not be for a little while yet, neither we (the mods and supermods) nor the staff (Katey, dsmith, et al.) will probably be able to give you any more answers on this. That's not an executive decision, it's just the way it is.

That said, this thread will stay open, and as long as no one starts being abusive or anything, no posts will be deleted or changed. If you have concerns, you have the right to have them answered to the fullest extent possible, but unfortunately there is only one person who can do most of the answering.

Thanks for understanding. Hang in there. We are doing our respective bests.

I appreciate that, and understand the purpose of the forum. I posted here because Cujo's thread was moved here.

The posting of that picture raises doubts that it really is The Edge posting.

Say you're a tech-savvy person who wants to post a self-portrait to a messageboard. Do you a) post a blurry scanned paper photo that's obviously five or six years old and that you obviously didn't take yourself, or b) take out your digital camera, hold it out at arm's length and snap a picture of yourself, and post it?

Not that this one incident alone means that it's not the real Edge. But it's things like this and other leaps of logic that lead me to believe that it isn't really him.

I already had some doubts but the photo was a huge red flag. Especially after this thread with this quote from Elvis on 8/21/04:

Quote:
I got to hang out with the band back in 2000 (my story is in the u2 meetings forum) and didnt take a picture with them - although I did get a funny picture of Edge posing/waving about a foot infront of the camera - and its slightly blurry.

The 'irony' of all this is that it looks like someone felt they could fool the addicts of Blue Crack Land, but apparently the very fact that we are addicts and notice everything has been underestimated and has backfired We who hang out here more than we should are good at stuff like that, we notice and remember and compare things. We can often pick out each other's alters before the mods do. The misstep was that it went on too long, went too far, and things started to happen that 'gave themselves away' So now maybe the best thing for this community is probably for this to stop, and rewind the tape recorder one more time to the day before it all started, and go on from there as friends.

I don't think anyone really expects any of the mods or staff to answer the questions which were raised in this thread
most are fully aware that you don't have the answers either since in the end you know as much about this as any of us do
just as I don't really expect any of the mods to answer the questions I raised earlier this week about my personal situation on here since you don't know the answer to that one either

the suggestion up until now that all we can do is simply trust the sites owner on this hardly makes any sense
I'm not even sure whether he has ever stated in a public thread that he has any evidence that suggests this really is The Edge
this site's success is only due to its members (a percentage of these members even pay good money to keep this site going) so asking for a little more clarity than none whatsoever shouldn't immediately be regarded as some kind of attack
also the members of this site have a right to know what kind of proof Elvis has that this is not a scam (note that I don't need to see/hear the actual evidence, I just want to know what it could possibly me)

I can wait another week for not getting any real answers though
I'm not going anywhere

Or some sort of proof that someone else is "scamming", if that's what will be claimed/stated

It's a nice thought to think that "let's just move on" and have everything all tied up in a neat little bow

Maybe some people aren't separating what they like about this site, and their friendships or whatever, from the issues. And before anyone attacks me for saying that, it's just a thought I have based upon observations. If that's what you want to do, that's fine.

There are things that are far more important to me than this site, things I value more, over and above all other things. I'll just leave it at that.

Or maybe since I'm not a paying member, I have no right to express my thoughts

But I don't understand why the Dalkey speculation was shut down. No one was asking for official confirmation, they were speculating amongst themselves. I don't agree with those threads being closed. I thought the detective work was quite interesting actually.
Katey - I believe it was you who close the Dalkey speculation thread. Perhaps you could explain why?

That is, without resorting to the party line of "we are not at liberty to disclose...".

Normal

TipTop, that's the least of the questions I'm thinking of at this point.

From this thread, just an example:

Posted on the EYKIW thread "Interference Interuption by "The Edge"

Quote:

In this century it can probably be applied to the personal computer and I am as guilty as the next.....

(this followed by a poem)

Originally posted by me in on the same thread in EYKIW:

GET IT??

I'm thinking of the name of a Steely Dan album


Get a clue, those of you who haven't already, we've been had I hope these posts can be read as they are before some are altered or deleted which I totally expect to happen. But I stand by what I said in my previous post about going back and starting again though I do totally understand Mrs. Springsteen's feelings.

I am not a MOD nor do I have any insight why the thread was closed..I have nothing to do with forum events such as thread closures etc... what Dalkey thread would that be..I dont read them all so if you provide a link maybe that can assist and clarify if need be. I might have very well posted in it..

brilliant ..yes the secret revealed Katey=the Edge ( i could only wish to have a bit of the talent..kindness etc..what he does)

however ..the horrible speller I am a shout out to Dev and my editors at work for always looking after my horrible grammar on article's documents etc... now if only they could follow me to the forums..LOL

good lord please dont call me a poet..that is a disservice to real poets everywhere..ohh that was a good chuckle today indeed

edit to say..dang I wish Steely Dan could have gotten my name spelt right on that album
